At the 1934 Milan Motor Show, Lancia introduced a new chassis designated "tipo 234" for custom-built cars based on the Augusta platform. Starting from the front hood, the custom chassis was essentially identical to the four-door sedan without pillars, apart from the relocated fuel tank. The chassis utilized a self-supporting boxed frame onto which craftsmen could drape elegant handcrafted bodies.

Approximately 3,100 Augusta custom cars were bodied by Italian coachbuilders, including Ghia and Touring, as well as English and French coachbuilders.

This particular car was first registered in Como on January 5, 1935. Later, it moved to Imperia and in 1937 was owned by Count Carlo Bruzzo, an industrialist and political leader from Genoa. During the war, Genoa was repeatedly bombed, damaging Count Bruzzo's palace and causing collateral damage to the Augusta chassis 34-2032.

After the war, Count Bruzzo commissioned a new body from Ghia in Turin, as evidenced by the Certificate of Origin. The car was subsequently sold in Savona, where it was last registered in 1956. In 1987, the Augusta was sold to a Fiat dealership in Cremona, which repainted it from black to its current two-tone gray. Finally, the Augusta was purchased by its last owner in 2013.

It is believed that the current bodywork was crafted between 1947 and 1957. This reconstruction period explains the various details incorporated into the car, such as the steering wheel from a 1949 Fiat 500C Topolino, indicators resembling those from a Fiat 1400 produced between 1950 and 1958, headlights from a 1954 Lancia Aurelia B12, taillights from a Lancia Aurelia B20, and front position lights resembling those from a 1956 Lancia Appia 2nd Series. The car's structure is primarily composed of steel and aluminum parts.

The interior is splendid and elegantly finished, presented in excellent condition. The car is operational, still bearing its 1956 Savona license plates.
