THE LANCIA FLAVIA

Lancia were always at the forefront of innovation and in the true Italian tradition of ensuring that the maximum amount of power could be created from even the most modest engine sizes, a ruse that was from the earliest days dictated by the country's taxation policies, the pioneering Flavia made its debut in 1960. It was one of the first cars to have both front wheel drive combined with a flat engine. Unmistakably from the house of Vignale, Lancia's Flavia convertible resembled the ever-popular Maserati 3500 GT Convertibles with its similar pronounced nose treatment.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Long fancied by the owners of this collection of cars, a Lancia Flavia joined their stable in more recent years, where it once sat alongside both a Flaminia and Aurelia. With the time freed up from managing the large collection of automobiles dispersed by Bonhams in 2010, the specialists who had worked on these cars were able to focus their attention on a thorough rebuild of this final Lancia convertible -- another good, original and sound basis.

The car has been completely stripped to bare metal, any attention required to the bodywork was carried out and it was then repainted in the elegant ivory white livery. Its interior was re-trimmed in contrasting red leatherette and a black top was fitted. Mechanically, the horizontally mounted engine has been rebuilt by a noted specialist on these cars and has recently been refitted to the car. All told, it will have cost the seller some $100,000 in expenses to bring the car to the fine order it is today.

In a year or two since the completion of its restoration, some of the standard debugging of use has been carried out, and the car is reported to be running and driving as well as it looks.
