Title: Classic and Sports Car - Tierney/Buckley Flaminia berlina
Post by: Parisien on 05 November, 2020, 07:51:04 PM
Forum stalwart  Frank Tierney gets an honourable mention in the rescue of a 1961/2 Flaminia berlina, hoping Mr Buckley does indeed carry out its restoration and not stick it straight on to ebay!

Martin has been in touch with me asking about replacement panels as it is partially stripped for welding so I am hopeful. It is a car I very much wanted to see restored because of its history of surviving but which I thought too far gone to be a sensible proposition. Martin seems as  attached to it as I was so my fingers are crossed.

Sadly Martin Buckley seems to have come to the same conclusion as me, that EJJ is no longer a viable project except for someone with a pathological love of welding. The biggest problem is that the front sub frame is completely rotted out on its lower surface and replacements, if traceable, are very expensive. He has offered it for sale and says he is sourcing a better one from Italy. EJJ may sadly end up as a parts car.
