Hi Dave,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
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!
