I'm considering a Lancia Appia. Are parts available for these classics?

I'm looking at classic Italian autos. Currently living in Italy so I have some access. I like the Lancia Appia models from the late '50s to early '60s. I like the size, styling and room but am not very familiar with the model. The engine and transmission would be a consideration but am open to reworking. What are the inherent weaknesses? Are parts available?

These are rare beasts that aren't that easy to work on. If you're serious, make contact with a Lancia club (the UK one is here: www.lanciamc.co.uk/) and speak to a few owners to get their views.
