I am in the process of restoring a 1951 Aurelia B50 Pininfarina Cabriolet, registration 922 EER. I have alot of history of the car but I would love to know if anyone knows more, especially old photos. The car was last at a LMC event in 1973, The Clubs International at Rousham Hall near Oxford, I have from Adrian Donovan a rear photo, but has anyone got any more?

Known history as follows:-
Chassis B50*1443 finished at Lancia 18-7-51
Sent to Pininfarina 28-8-51
Registered 15-5-53 to Attilio Edoardo in Beltrami Di Omegna, Italy. Registered NO 29848
Later registered in Milan MI 276425 (or could be 276426?)
Registered to Giovanni Di Filippo Cagiati in Rome 10-12-55, registration number 241036 Roma.
12-12-62 Registered to Janet samuelian Aidala, also in Rome
17-4-63 Purchased by Richard Murphey Goodwin. He was the well known economist who Lectured at Cambridge from  1951 and in 1980 became Professor of Economics at Siena University. He Imported the car into the UK in June 1963, when it was given its UK registration number 922EER.
In late 1972 the car was sold to Brian Fenton from Northants who is still a Club member. He patched up the sills and took it to the aformentioned Clubs International meeting at Oxford. The MOT then ran out and the car was laid-up.
In about 1983 the car was given to Anthony Smallhorn who ran the Aurelia Consortium.
The car was bought by Ron Francis in about 1984 and the restoration started.  I bought the car from Ron in Feb 2008, finished off the mechanical work with the help of Pete Harding, and it is at the moment being painted.
So if you can add to the above I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Had a trial fitting of the freshly chromed hood frame today, along with the new (as yet unfinished) ash cross members.

The steering wheel should be finished soon Robin, that's the next big expense!

OK! I was going to wait until it was painted which should be this week. I do have some from before restoration, but don't have a working scanner at the moment (all spare cash goes on the car). Here are some from when I bought it.

I bought it from Ron Francis just over a year ago. He had had all the welding done, you really need to see the before photos, but there wasn't much there to start with, most of the bottom half is new!
I am painting it in its original colour which is Bleu Sera (Evening blue) metallic. (Didn't like the pale blue)
I hope to have it finished for the Aurelia lunch on 10th May, then the Sliding Pillar in June, so it should be at the AGM.

aaarrrgggggggggggg! missed this one and added two of the same pic.

And there's me just spent 10 minutes trying to find the differences between the two photos Cheesy


Another from Portugal 2004. I also have other photos of this car in Esphino 2001, believe the owner is an ex racing driver.

I have seen this car in Portugal, it is earlier than mine, having a few detail differences, the boot line is lower, it has alloy bumpers and different style vents either side of the radiator grill.

Here are a couple of photos taken today of the car finally painted. It's a bit difficult to see the colour as it has been wet sanded prior to polishing, but the front corner of the wing has been polished but in the spray booth with fluorescent light the colour does not show true.
