Yes, I know Fernando Armida. Very nice guy. I only knew he was selling the Appias which have been owned by him for tons of years, but didn't know of the others, and have no idea why they haven't sold.

I'm back and trying to learn your cars. Seems to me the Blue Flavia in Portugal for 12500 E is a no brainer compared to everything else you guys have chatted about from Alabama to California. What am I missing?

I called him on Monday morning and told him I'd take the car, so I wouldn't be empty-handed! Attached are photos of the car the day I picked it up in NJ and on the 2008 New England 1000 rally. As for color, the jury's still out. It has a lovely "cuoio" color leather interior. The candidates are Blu Lancia, Grigio Albany (a gunmetal gray metallic) and Grigio Ascot, a dark non-metallic gray. Blu Lancia and Grigio Ascot were in the lead, until I saw a magnificent Ferrari 250GT Spider today at the Amelia Island show in dark gray metallic with cuoio leather and I was smitten...
Compare and contrast with the earlier photos posted- here's my Flam PF a couple of weeks ago when I went to the shop to inspect the bright trim for condition evaluation. It's amazing that a car which seems so clean and devoid of chrome sure has a lot once it's taken off and arranged on a table...
This is the point of no return- most is stripped and gutted- no turning back now!

Donald,

Looks very solid; very few issues in the metal. But what's going on at the top of the diagonal brace in the bottom photo? Or am I just seeing things?

Yes, the body is in remarkably good shape- no corrosion in the body panels or floor. There was some filler on the bottom of the doors and there are some strange small patch panels in the rear wheel arches on both sides which will be ripped out and replaced.

Your eyes do not deceive you- what you see in the lower photo is some surface rust which developed underneath the rear quarter windows which must have been letting in moisture for years under the lower seal. It's not very serious, but I am happy it's been discovered...

An update on my Flaminia, which lurches step by step to completion. Here it is a few weeks ago after the first coats of paint. It was a gray/misty day, so the color doesn't reproduce so well. We ended up with Grigio Tudor; the contrast with the "cuoio" leather seats is terrific. Most of the chrome's back as well. It seems to be on track for a winter 2010 finish. Hopefully by then I will have saved up enough money to pay for the work!

Indeed I agree what a lovely looking Flaminia.

I just wanted to post that my brother has only recently acquired (last weekend) a Flaminia GT ? series 3, 2.8 V6, in grey with leather. Apparently it has around 80,000m on the clock. I am assuming it is the same shape as Zagato67's car?? I havnt seen it yet, but according to my brother it is one of 48 RHD models made. He mentioned that the engine is in pieces, that the car needs to be re-painted and the interior tidied up. Ditto the chrome needs to be re-done. Apparently it is straight, with virtually no visible rust.

I will take some pics of the car and post here for all to see. As I understand it, it is the only one in the State, and one of a handful at best in Australia. In buying the Flaminia, apparently a part of the deal is that he also will be buying from the seller a Gamma coupe which is wrecked but still has many good parts on it. He thinks a few of the Flaminia's parts may be in the Gamma's boot, plus with another friend who bought a Fulvia coupe and Zagato Fulvia in a stack of parts that came with these cars off the same seller. It should be yet another interesting project to sort out.

Now I must admit I know so little about classic Lancias, so any info/advice etc could be helpful to him. I mean where do you get parts for this model, say apart from Omicron in the UK?

BTW this is my 1000 post on the BB and I am talking Lancias , nothing like being interested in all sorts of Italian cars. Dave

Hi Dave,
Glad to hear about your brother's new car. The Touring GT coupes are wonderful. As for being in "the same condition" as my car is presently, look back in the thread and you will discover that my car was a perfectly presentable, terrific driver before I went nuts a year ago.
The first thing your brother should do is contact the very active Australian Lancia Registry- try first Peter Renou, the editor of their newsletter. He's at [email protected]

Good luck, let's see some photos!

Hi Donald. Thanks for the reply, and yes I can imagine that they are something special. As I indicated he has only just collected the car, and told me about it last night, so no first hand observations as to its true condition.

Ditto, thanks also for the contact in Aus, I will let my brother know, as I am sure he will appreciate any help he can get to put it back together. He already has been in touch with an engineer he knows who is keen to tackle the engine rebuild for him. The engineer, has a Lamborghini Urraco and does all his own maintenance, and has had Alfas, Lancias, as well as heaps of Jags, MGs etc. He even built from scratch his own D Type to correct Specs and used to race it extensively.

But I am sure, given my brothers somewhat vast collection of cars that it will be in a condition, commensurate with most of his other ones.

I most definitely will post some pics as soon as I can get up to his place to take some. Dave

Can someone post a picture of a Bleu Lancia car please. I'm starting to think of possible colors for my Flaminia, which has a beige/cognac interior, and even though the non metallic dark grey is certainly high up the list, I'd like to explore other options.

Thanks

I know I am not too helpful here and I do love the dark blue, dark gray, anthracite metallic colors with non-black interiors.

But, the most stunning color combination I have ever seen on a Lancia (A Flaminia Touring Convertible to be exact) was a lighter olive color with pumpkin/ terra cotta-ish interior. Completely unusual, claimed the original color combination, should not work on paper, and absolutely and stunningly beautiful.
