If you're seriously interested in buying a car off eBay I'd recommend going to see it first. That way you can ask if there's a reserve and maybe if it's for sale elsewhere and buy through that advert. Saves the seller commission....  ;)

Sounds a bit weird...... no log book......no number plates......no history......found in a lock-up??????

There is a number plate inside the car which looks like TFR 40J or 43J or even 143J i've just tried them all in a vehicle check and nothing is coming up. I remember dvla used to apply current registration numbers to imported vehicles before they changed to age related so if it was imported in 1971 they would issue a H or J plate, just a thought although as Brian said, it does look like alot of work and probably only worth using for those rare parts?

A freind has enquired about this Flaminia.  The engine number is a 3 choke weber carbed one from a Flaminia pf Coupe 2.5 3B!

These are very classy cars and their value will rise over the next few years.  To put it in perspective, a steering wheel from a Touring Flaminia (like the one in this car) sold for 800 euros on Italian ebay not so long ago.  Restoration will certainly be a massive task but if done well, the car will be worth around 30k when finished.  I would say that in this condition it is still cheap at 1,700.

That sums it up though. A steering wheel at 800 euros. No way that can be restored and be "in credit".

If you look closely at the picture of the "interior" there's a rear number plate in the pile which might give a clue to previous ownership and allow the new owner to obtain a log book? (TRF?48J)Still probably a labour of love but I hope that posts hinting at the steering wheel being worth 800 don't tempt anyone to buy this car with a view to breaking for profit...

I'm buying a lottery ticket this weekend. Keep you fingers crossed, it's for a good cause. ('cause I'd love it! ;D)

  I sincerely hope that my comments do no encourage that kind of vandalism.  Surely this forum is frequented by enthusiasts.  Incidentally, there is a touring Flaminia or sale at "The Gallery" - http://www.thegallerybrummen.nl/en_EN/autobedrijf/collectie/2892339/details.html - 61,500 euros - but their prices are always very high - and there are a couple of photos of the car undergoing restoration which may be of interest.

Bidding is up to 6000 - that seems quite a lot for a car in this condition?


Title: Re: Flaminia Touring Coupe LHD
Post by: Sliding Pillar on 21 January, 2011, 07:15:04 PM
It sold for 6,000, a very good price for the seller for a car with so much missing and the wrong engine!


Title: Re: Flaminia Touring Coupe LHD
Post by: Richard Fridd on 21 January, 2011, 07:35:03 PM
sold for 6 then.if the buyer has some surplus spares and  for this model already and other resources i suppose it is a reasonable buy[was it ever going to go for much less?i expect i will be put right on that question].hopefully the buyer has had a good look at his /her new purchase and has things under control.after all if the[wrong] engine/box etc can be made to work without any major costs that could save what could have been a bill equal to the purchase price+more i suppose.work to be done.i hope to see the progress if it is now in the LMC-or perhaps it will end up at a dealers if there is any markup worth having.best regards richard

But you can buy a decent Flaminia PF for 16k.  Its a rum world.

I wonder if the new owner of the ebay Flaminia will be able to bring it up to the standard of this one for the extra 27,000 it costs (OK it does need some money spent on brakes and chrome)   I think not!

Hi All

Maybe I am missing something (please enlighten me), but when you can buy a what looks like a really nice Flavia Coupe for 11K asking price, see

http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C142461/

and as illustrated above a Flaminia for not an inconsiderable amount more, why would you spend 5k-6k on this?

Am I really missing the point?

Thanks

Peter

Well...

In a nutshell there's a glamour to that model and there's a romance to a project.  If you don't see it feel blessed.  I've always been grateful that I don't have the "win at all costs" gene.

A similar car in similar condition as that Flavia is listed at EUR 60K so someone could fool themselves it stacks up financially, but its always going to be more complicated than that.

I guess I will remain blessed for the present!

I assume you meant Flaminia, not Flavia @ 60K? But as mentioned above there is one for 30K Euros asking price all ready to go.
