Nearly ready for Santa: Lancia Kappa 1919

Lancia Kappa 1919

These days all kinds of more and less creative automotive christmas greetings land in our mailbox. This one in particular we like to share with you. Tor Nyhus writes that he has been working thirty (30!) years on the restoration of his 1919 Lancia Kappa. "It will be ready to drive next year. The car was sold new in Norway, and during its life has spent five years under water, so the car looked very bad when I started working on it. Some very hard to find the parts were needed for the restoration, and a lot of those came all the way from Australia. Many parts were found here in Thanks a lot for a great page." 

Merry christmas and a happy new year from Tor Nyhus in Norway.

Good job, but the leather is too modern and please, remove the wrong scripts from the radiator

What's with this sudden rush of submerged cars? Is there some historic trend beginning?

Fabulous job and good eye for detail. However the logo on the radiator dates from before the correct Lancia badge at the top so it looks nice but should not really be there. Not to speak of the word "kappa"!

Congratulations to a gordius car.I can imagine what time and effort it has taken to get it in this shape.

Very nicely restored. One will be able to appreciate the effort much more if photos of the car "as found" are also shown.
Eagerly awaiting this favour.
Cheers Harit
