1935 Lancia Augusta
- Certificate of Origin Ghia
- Carrozzata Ghia
In 1934, at the Milan Motor Show, Lancia introduced a new platform called "type 234" for the Augusta base.
From the bonnet forward, the outboard platform was essentially identical to the four-door sedan without struts, apart from the transferred fuel tank.
The platform used a chassis with a box-shaped platform, on which the coachbuilders could drape elegant bodies worked by hand.
The platforms for the Augusta series (about 3,100 units) were dressed by Italian coachbuilders, such as Ghia, Touring, but also by English and French coachbuilders.
This model was registered for the first time in Como on 5 January 1935. Subsequently transferred to Imperia, in 1937 it was owned by Count Carlo Bruzzo, an industrialist and Genoese political leader.
During the war Genoa was repeatedly bombed and the palace of Count Bruzzo was damaged by these attacks, with consequent damage to the Augusta chassis 34-2032.
After the war, Count Bruzzo commissioned a new bodywork from Ghia of Turin, as evidenced by the Certificate of Origin, and the car was subsequently sold to Savona, where it was registered for the last time in 1956.
In 1987 the Augusta was sold to a Fiat dealership in Cremona, which repainted it from black to the current two-tone grey. The Augusta was finally purchased by the last owner in 2013.
It is believed that the current body was built between 1947 and 1957. This reconstruction period, would explain the various details embedded in the car, such as:
The steering wheel of a Fiat 500C Topolino introduced in 1949, the indicators seem to come from a Fiat 1400 produced between 1950 and 1958. The lighthouses are of a 1954 Lance Aurelia B12. The back lights are of a Lance Aurelia B20, and the lights of anterior position seem Lance Appia 2a Series, of 1956.
The structure of the car consists mainly of steel and aluminum parts.
