I can't identify this car. Some details suggest me this is a Dilambda, but i don't know the Vanden Plas production so well. Could you help me, please? Thanks!

Body 3623, chassis 335141, design 1485/1 in Le Mans Green 1/1938, 334 pounds. No type known, but perhaps with the chassisnumber you know...

As that is the only Lancia in Brian Smith's Vanden Plas extracts, and I have a couple references to an Astura with a Vanden Plas body with the British registration HDL 413, that must be what it is.

If you would like me to look up the 27-year old references, I will be happy to do so.... but only after a stiff drink! =)

Thank you guys!
The serial number belongs to an Astura, and the plate is HDL 413. That's correct, even if looking at the bonnet it could be a Dilambda, a V8 engine as the Astura. Probably this is an unsold chassis, a III series, because the production of IV series began in 1938.
