Title: Wanted Lancia Flavia coupe........request from a member to be.
Post by: Parisien on 28 July, 2014, 06:04:23 PM


Mike is currently registering for membership and asked if I could expedite his request!


I wonder if anyone can help me locate a car I was trying to buy and I got in contact with the owner on here but have since lost their details.
I think they (understandably) thought I was messing them around after I had to pull out after getting a rather large bill for my then car (which I was expecting) only to find the work hadn't been carried out and it all got a little ugly with the garage. (Top tip, always pay a large bill on your credit card!)

Anyway, after the best part of a year dealing with the legal aspect of the bill, everything is now sorted and am once again in the market for a car.
The car I was offered was LAC 41L and would be interested in the car or, if this car is no longer available, if anyone has something similar, I'd be very interested.

I can be contacted on 07930 953285 whilst I wait for my membership to come through and gain access to the forum.

Mike Gamble.

Good tip regarding the credit card. I hadn't thought of that method to pay a garage. I do have a car in tatty but sound and roadworthy condition which is my PF beauty. Not for sale at present. Sounds a sad story regarding the payment for work not being carried out!

Seem reasonable. If it is in Leeds as it appears I could go have a look on behalf of anyone for who it is too far to travel? Call me on 07802860165.

Now I've read the ad properly it's actually in Sunderland, so just a bit far for a casual look. Still looks good to me though unless you find some terminal rot. I'm sure it will be snapped up quick either way.

There is a Flavia mentioned in one of the current classic magazines. Tuscany is the location, along with a Flaminia Touring

That looks like the Flaminia GT to me, any pictures of the Flavia

That's a nice looking Flavia at the Historics auction at Brooklands and I would have thought the guide price was on the low side assuming the body is straight and the car runs OK. There is also a 4th Series B20 at this auction with a guide price of 150-180k! For a mildly modified competition  vehicle as well which I would have thought was worth less than a decent standard road car.
Intrigued to see what they both achieve.

The Brooklands car is certainly worth that money considering it has a better (and rebuilt) engine

Love it.... now where could I hide it from my wife????

Cheers
Dave

Just a quick little 'hello' and thanks for the help in finding this car. Hopefully it will be parked on the drive Monday evening then the work can start....

If anyone is looking to buy the one at auction at Brooklands, its worth noting that it has the wrong dash.

Its a 1963 car so should have the ribbon speedo. Only a small point but worth knowing, it does look nice though, and i don`t believe it will be that cheap.

It wasn't that cheap. Recorded as sold for 13,440 on the Historics site.

And the 'competition' Aurelia B20 estimated at an eye-popping 150,000 - 180,000 didn't sell. I like the way that Sports Car Market describes  this kind of pricing as being 'ahead of the market', as if all the market ever does is rise.

Also the Fulvia did not sell and the Delta HF Turbo went for 7.7k.

From a distance it appears to me that the only cars that did sell at Brooklands were the good examples of the model/marque which had reasonable guide prices. I would be interested to know what the B20 max bid was?

B20 at Brooklands started at 80k on commission and slowly went to 100k then quickly moved on to next lot, as no interest at that price.
