Here is another Flaminia curiosity
Apparently passing the Category B exam qualifies one to drive a Flaminia.

I'm particularly fond of this ad, and have long wished for a better scan of it. Più potente, più veloce . . .

I would also be very interested in purchasing digital files of the scans of the technical posters.

Thanks,
Dave

The front left wheel arch seemed to have had some accident, although the wing itself does not show deformation of that kind. Wanted to rectify it on the car first, then decided to remove half of the wheel arch and build a new one.

Then I wanted to go deeper, it looks worse the more I cut away. Now the left rear wing also has been removed. Next step will be removal of the middle rocker panel.

As always, the more you dig, the deeper the hole. Good luck

I guess despite the obvious work needed none of those panels are complex and look quite easy to fabricate, something I`ve noticed with many of the coach built Italian cars of that period. It means a faster easier job for you.
Extremely jealous of your Flaminias by the way, I missed out on a Touring Coupe, the only one known to exist here in New Zealand.

Richard,

you are right, most of the panels are easy to make, but the Pininfarina is much more complex than the Tourings or Zagatos. It is the number of panels that are interlaced. Anyhow, I digged down to rock bottom today, at least at the left side of the car.

Don and Dave,

I tried to send pms rearding the posters to you, but the messenger tells me. "no items sent" Please send pm to me, which I can reply to, I will give you the email of my friend then.

Ouch that sure is some serious rust and deconstruction. Oh well at least you know the extent of the damage, hopefully it can only be onwards and up from here. Will be watching this restoration keenly.

Seriously hope my brother's car is no where as rusty as this, I doubt he could manage what you are. Must show him this thread though to prepare him.

It is not my first restoration and this car is not the worst I have rescued. But I assume that many of the Pininfarina Coupés that look "harmless" or even good face the same problems.

Anyhow, here are some pictures of my Flavia, also a car that was substantially too good, to scrap

On the first photo the car (or what is remaining) is upside down.

I was in NY two weeks ago and discovered a fashion brand which had the marketing slogan "fashion for the fearless". Perhaps I should wear their clothes in my shop!

Hubert, such a saving when you have the skills to do the work yourself, I am going to follow this thread with huge interest. I know we couldn`t afford our cars(11) if we simply had to get someone else to do it. It is great to see someone getting into projects which any would find too big, or too expensive to have done for them. This way another interesting car that might otherwise have met that great crusher in the sky gets to live again.
By the way what are those tubes running down the lhs of the car within the sills?
Also a Lancisti by the way with a Fulvia 2C Berlina, Fulvia coupe series 3, and a series 1 HPE 2000. Sadly I sold a Flavia 1.8 Coupe before I had the skills and tools I have now but do lust after a Flaminia, especially a Touring bodied example but early (pre `80`s) Lancias very very rare here.

Hello Hubert


Thank you for a great thread, you obviously are a craftsman!

The tube is to take up the wiring loom leading to the back of the car. There is an identical one in the right hand sill. My car is a left hand drive, the wires are in the right tube. I assume that with right hand drive cars it is the other way round.

Actually I am no craftsman, I lead my working life behind a desk and a screen. But the manual work forms a good counter weight to my job.
