Great page Kjell. You have really nice cars.

Instead of selling the E-type, you should sell me the Fulvia, it is gorgeous

Great cars, great page. Would love to hear more on how the GTV compares to the Fulvia (and Porsche).

I will take the T but I think this one is long gone, right?

If you mean the 911T, yes it now lives in Australia.

first job

The tires on the car are very old. They are the correct tire for the
car as per the owners manual. They have the old style cursive
"Michelin" logo. Luckily These Michelin X tires are still available new (in their 165-400 size)! Spare is perfect,still has paper label
on treads. Wheels have a mix of bolt on (original) weights, and
old clip on weights, some which have been painted wheel color.
Therefore, the wheels have been painted (very good match with
spare) at some point, and the tires may not be the originals.

Also removal of rear hubcaps shows where the outboard u-joints for the axles are located (follows Aurelia practice).
This must be very expensive to build.....

Kjell, the proper colour for the wheels is "Avorio Chantilly" (Max Meyer 12.043 or Lechler L32).

I am glad you went with the right tire size. Those were not available for a while and/ or quite expensive. Hence quite a few Flaminias and Alfa 2600 Zagatos ended up with bigger tires. Not only do they look slightly off, on some cars, they rub inside ...

The Jaeger gauges are a work of beauty. We were talking about the Octane SuperSport article in a different thread. I like Octane but so often, they do not get the details right: In the article, they attributed the original series 1 Sport design from 1958 to Spada and they labeled the gauges as Veglia. Last time I checked, all of the gauges are those two Jaeger ones and Spada "only" did the SuperSport re-design in 63 ...

All the Flaminias were equipped by the Jaeger.
Spada designed also the sport lightweight with the tubular chassis, but who designed the 3 Tourings?

I love the gauges, the deco clock in the tach is cool too.
I have some Jaeger gauges out of an Alfa and the triple gauge is cool but not near as complex as that speedo. Having had some speedos restored I'd hate to see the cost of restoring that one!
No matter how hard they try modern dashes never look this good.

Agree - all these details really are enjoyable. Never seen outboard universal joints like those either.

I've had these pics laying around my "general interest" folder for some time. Can't recall what they're from but I'm nearly certain it was a Lancia. Some of the best pointers I've ever seen.

Those Veglia gauges come from the famous 1949 Fiat 1500D under restoration the story of wich is posted on this forum.

Kjell, I see your water temperature is on the high side, is this the way your car runs? Mine seems to always run on the warm side, never really getting to the red, but always very close.

I checked the temperature with a laser gun and the sensor might be a little off, but not much.

I think this is where the needles are in the off position. What I absolutelly love about all my Lancias is they never ever ran hot. Not the Flavia, not the Flaminia and certainly not the Appia. I would look into that, Henry
