Footnotes

  • The coupé and convertible versions of the Lancia Flaminia was made in relatively small numbers and surviving examples in good condition are, therefore, quite rare. Lancia’s Pininfarina-styled Flaminia saloon had debuted at the 1956 Turin Motor Show. Designed by newly recruited Antonio Fessia and intended as a replacement for the Aurelia, the Flaminia retained its predecessor’s mechanical layout, though the form of unitary construction was changed and Lancia’s traditional ‘sliding pillar’ independent front suspension, which had been used on every model since 1922, gave way to a more modern double wishbone and coil spring arrangement. Aurelia carryovers were the overhead-valve, 60-degree V6 engine and De Dion rear transaxle (with inboard brakes), although the former had been extensively reworked by Fessia, resulting in a much stronger power unit than that designed by his predecessor, Vittorio Jano. The short-wheelbase Flaminia Coupé appeared in 1958, followed by the Touring-styled GT and GTL (2+2) coupés and the Convertible. The latter trio shared a further-shortened (to 99”) wheelbase with the Sport and Super Sport models, and all featured disc brakes and increased power. The 2,458cc V6 produced 119bhp when installed in the more sporting Flaminias, with 140bhp available in the ‘3C’ models from 1961, which was further increased when the 2,775cc version arrived in 1963.
    One of only ten right-hand drive Touring-bodied 3C GTs, the example we offer has been in the current vendor’s possession since 1989, undergoing gradual restoration to its present near pristine condition. The Lancia has been maintained throughout by Peter Harding at Classic Restorations; re-sprayed four years ago, it also benefits from a new stainless steel exhaust, re-chromed bumpers and grille, new carpeting and mats, and re-conditioned leather. When acquired in 1989, the Flaminia displayed a total of 65,000 miles on the odometer and has been driven approximately 1,000 miles annually since then (the current mileage is 88,000). ‘AYR 546B’ has been displayed at the NEC Classic Car Show and in 2005 won the ‘Best Lancia’ award at the Italian Car Concours.
    Parts availability for these classic Lancias is excellent, with the UK’s Omicron Engineering holding plentiful stocks. There are also marque specialists in Italy, Holland and the USA, as well as an enthusiastic owners club. Described as in generally excellent condition, the only notified defect being some minor corrosion to the front subframe, the car is offered with sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5.
