1976 Lancia Scorpion

Given the limited number of Lancia Scorpions sold new in the US, I've been surprised by the amount of mint condition examples that have come on the market recently. This Scorpion for sale in Toronto is remarkably rust free and has benefitted from a recent repaint. In red, this mid-engined Lancia exudes a decidedly Ferrari-esque aura.

1976 Lancia Scorpion

You are bidding on a rare 1976 Lancia Scorpion that is rust free and is ready to be put to use as a reliable and fun classic. The great thing with these cars it that just about every part is still available and at a reasonable cost, check out www.montehospital.com, you can even use this to build your own Martini Lancia 037 rally car replica. The bodywork was completely repainted in glorious Ferrari Rosso in 2009 and the only spot of rust was removed and repaired. This is one of only six in Canada and even in the States they are quite rare. People always think it is a Ferrari and it certainly turns heads.

Tires and battery are brand new. I also have a fibreglass double bubble roof insert which I use for winter storage, the folding top is still seviceable and I have a spare for when replacement is necessary. There is also a new carpet set, a the five original Cromadoro 13" wheels with 90% used tires, the original tool kit is also present. Worried about buying on-line and shipping across the continent? Don't be; this car was my first such purchase and since then I bought a Merecedes SL500 from California and recently purchased a 33ft Trawler in St. Petersburg. I will assist with shipping arrangements So why is the Lancia for sale? Let's just say that I am not as slim as I was and SL fits me better! I have a 2009 inspection/valuation available. Price is as is where is and being 36 years old the Lancia has no warranty.

Scorpions of this caliber usually sell anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000, with truly exceptional examples bringing a bit upwards of that range. I've said it before and I'll say it again: the value for money factor is high when it comes to the Lancia Scorpion. Few cars can compete at this price when you consider this vehicle's balanced chassis, crisp, Pininfarina lines and competition pedigree.

  1. Have you improved the a/c any?

    Fausto,

    The Scorpion that was for sale in this ad was not our own vehicle, rather, here at CICFS, we post vehicles for sale by third parties.

    You can contact the seller via the eBay link directly above the main picture in this post.

    Regards,

    Paul

    I don’t know if this is a very old ad. If it’s still sitting there..what are the specs..e.g., 1,7 or 1.9 engine, fuel injected
    etc?

  4. Paul says:

    Mat,

    This is an ad from last April. The car has been sold.

    Thanks for reading,

    Paul

  5. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or
    something. I think that you simply can do with some % to drive the message house
    a little bit, but other than that, that is fantastic blog.

    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
