A Zagato-bodied Lancia from the sixties is something for the gentleman within you. With its 2.8-liter V6 and a pair of double barrel Webers, it's better than getting a pipe.
Lancia made more than 12,000 of its flagship model from 1957 through 1970, and while the Connolly Leather upholstery in Pininfarina's stretched limousines were enjoyed by such royalty as Queen Elizabeth II, only about 150 were Super Sports were made between 1964 and 1967 with 153 horsepower wrapped in that glorious Zagato body.
Dreaming about reliability is like chasing the dragon. You just drive the damn thing, fix what's broken, then drive her more. She will sing.
