The Gamma was launched in Italy in 1976, although the first right-hand drive models didn't come to Great Britain until 1978. The early Series 1 (S1) Gammas were available as a 4-door saloon and a 2-door coupe with 2 litre and 2.5 litre engines, although only the latter was officially imported here in the UK, the 2000 being primarily for the Italian home market.

Although both were designed by Pininfarina, only the coupe was assembled on their production line (alongside the Ferrari 400), the saloon being a purely Lancia-built product. All early S1 cars in Great Britain had carburettor-fed engines, manual gearboxes, 6Jx14" alloy wheels of a flat-faced, 5-slot design with velour trim (leather optional). Modifications introduced during the first series were mostly mechanical, including revised camshaft belt tensioners and changes to the cooling system. The interior of the later S1 coupes was changed to a cloth with 'L' motifs. This was also used to replace the vinyl trim to the seat backs, doors and the rear side-panels.

This very original Lancia Gamma Coupe with a total milage of approx. 108.000 km (believed to be correct) is according to the vendor in good overall condition and is offered here at a very reasonable price. The car comes with Dutch paperwork.
