With production numbers for the Lancia Flaminia Convertible being so small (less than half of the number of the stylish Flaminia coupe), this car was originally purchased by a Lancia collector who drove it sparingly and kept it in their inventory for over 30 years. Stephen Bell aquired this vehicle after the owner had since retired it following a minor collision. The vehicle had been stored for several years in the back of an old out-building on the original owners’ property.
This rare example is very complete and almost all original. The color was changed by the first owner some years back from silver and the paint shows a very flattering patina. The interior is completely original and this numbers matching car maintains the original 2.5L V-6 with the triple Weber carburettor setup. A non running car, this could make an excellent project for a rare and beautiful driver that most people have never even seen.
These cars are well known by avid collectors as being great drivers. Handling well around the bends and maintaining a firm, yet comfortable ride, some of the ground-breaking features offered by Lancia when this vehicle was rolling out of the factory in Milan keep it well known in small circles for being an excellent and elegant platform for your weekend cruises.
