Title: Flaminia Mirror?
Post by: ColinMarr on 21 August, 2013, 06:25:18 AM
Amongst my collection of odd spares I have found an interior driverís mirror that I think might be from a Flaminia Ė see photos. At one time I think it had been fitted to my B20, but itís much wider (20cms) than an Aureliaís and I never used it.

Please does anyone recognise which car and model it comes from?

(Also attached is a photo of my old B20 in its racing days where the big mirror and wrong can just be seen.)

There are two different mirrors with my PF. I'll have a look this morning when I go to the workshop. Richard

Any more from the racing days Colin? My mirrors have three holes for the fasteners

Thanks Richard, Looks like it's not Flaminia. I thought it might have been because quite a few of the parts on my car were from a Flaminia. Tim has suggested that it might be from a Flavia Vignale, but I don't remember the Flavia one having a spur for fitting a rubber steady against the windscreen.

My Vignale mirror has a spur and I made a rubber bung to steady it on the windscreen. BUT the mirror also had a built in interior light. I guess your mirror could be from a Flavia coupe...

It’s not a Flaminia mirror, the mirror I know, which I have seen on all the cars in the Flamina range. Is rectangular, chrome with a big dipper flap and has ribs on the back (like the first pic in RF post). They all have 2 hole fixing and stems just like the first photo but each model had slightly different stem length and angle, so they are not interchangeable.

The Flaminia mirror type was a popular mirror of the time, I have seen then on Ferrari, Maserati and other Lancia models

I am looking for an interior mirror for my PF Flaminia, same pattern as the rectangular chromed mirror in the photo.  The spring inside the mirror which facilitates the dipping has disappeared.  I also have two door mirrors which are not a pair (though it took me a while to spot that!).  I do not think door mirrors were fitted by the factory, but they are certainly useful.  What mirrors have others fitted?
