Apparently the Spanish Aurelia 4th series that was for sale for EUR9,000 on classiccarsforsale.co.uk is on its way to Surrey.  If its headed to an LMC member, many congratulations and I hope that we see the restoration progress on here.  Even without an engine that has to be a bit of a bargain!

I agree.  That's why I bought it!

So an LMC member did close the deal to bring this project to the UK, that's me... but I bought it because I'm interested in the car, not the bargain.

When I've got my hands on the thing in a month or so, I'll let you know what's what (and it sounds like there might be a serviceable, original cloth interior under the seat covers; as well as the unrusted body).

In the meantime, if any of you have any lights / bumpers / exterior trim that you can supply for an early 4th series B20 (the car is the 8th 4th series - i.e. the 8th de dion - Aurelia made, early '54).

Oh, and an engine.  I have a 2.5l twin carb engine that Chris Gawne sold me a few years ago which could probably be made to fit, but it's really a berlina engine, and I think (could be incorrect on this) that the mounting points differ.

Best,
William

Congratulations on your purchase. Bargain of the year, I would think.
 If your engine is a 2.5 litre, it must be the correct one for a B20, as the saloon engines were slightly smaller in capacity. Years ago, I fitted a B20 motor into my B12 - and I don't remember any difference in the mounting points. Good luck with getting it all together.
 Regards, John

The engine I have is B12, modified to 2.5l.  I really bought it for my B10, which will soon be ready to receive it, but the arrival of the Spanish car changes the pieces of the puzzle a bit.  I do remember being told that it wouldn't fit a B20, but perhaps that's not the case.

I was speaking to a man recently at the LeMans Classic. He had bought a B20 at Retromobile with a saloon engine fitted, so maybe they will fit with little problems.

I tried to load some flickr photos to a post, but without success.  Anyone here know how to do this?

The flickr are protected, for obvious reasons, but you could post a link instead. Just cut & paste the web address at top of your page.
