Back to thinking of wanting a PF Coupe. Have seen these 2 on an Italian website.

Can anyone who knows these things take a look at the photos of the rear, at the valance under the bumper. One looks "remade" and the other has an arch in it. Which is correct - if either.

Any other comments from Flaminia experts/enthusiasts?

I realise Richard Thorne is selling the blue one - again - but the thinking is one from Italy has to have a better chance of being rust free?

Many thanks
Lindsay

I think the correct rear valance is the second one, on the Flaminia Coupe the exhausts should both exit on the right hand side, it looks as if on the first car it has had an exhaust coming out of the center which has subsequently been changed for the correct side exit.
It does look as if on the second car the rear valance has been bent at some stage!
The car for sale at R. Thorne has incorrect exhausts on it, probably Touring or Zagato, as these are available, although they do look better than the side exiting ones!
There are quite a few Flaminia Coupes for sale, there is a nice looking one for sale in Australia, although the Chassis number is a LHD one and the car is RHD, so possibly a converted car. If you can find a good one go for the larger more powerful 2.8 engine.

Oz one looks nice but no way of getting a look at it in the flesh.
The blue one I have enquired about and the bloke wants 45k euros for it so that's a no no! Other one I did see but not sure about the interior. No rush so will keep a tab on what is going on and something right will come up.

I have had some information about one of the ones you were interested in from a contact in Turin, this is what he says:-

I know the white Flaminia in Moncalieri (TO), this is a good car, the owner is a Lancia club member. Unfortunately, the new upholstery is completely wrong. He had the same problem that  my friends had with the red Connolly. At least, he choose a wrong leather as you can see. It's a shame, but the price is good for me, because the standard price for a Pf Flaminia is nearly 20.000euro in Italy actually. By the way, the blue 2800, actually in USA, was in Pistoia in 2008 at 12.000euro. The dark grey car at Luzzago seems to be a good car, but needs new woolen carpets and new upholstery, the front seats are too cracked for a grease only. The price for these works is nearly 10.000euro in Italy, definitevely 18.000euro for this car are too much, i think.

Hope this information helps. Ade.

Hi Ade, very helpful indeed. I did think the upholstery was wrong on the white 2.5. A shame really. Would be nice to have a good original interior but everyone wants that. The cost of new carpets and seats seems horrendous - defintely too much to take on, although I suspect if a non original look was acceptable the price would be somewhat less.
Very interesting regarding that Blue car in the USA. Some profit if he gets close to his asking price.

Have looked at the exchange rate possibilities and 13k for 15k euros seems to be about the best. I wonder whether to wait for the euro to crash and could get a proper bargain!!

thanks for your help.

Here's another - no price quoted - unusual colour, and the leather doesn't look right to me, though the ad claims it is original...

Thanks for that. Interesting colour scheme! I don't know if the interior is original either. I am ripe for the taking!

You like Brian?  I'll let you know how much it is! I have the means, well if you discount paying the mortgage. Other half is highly unimpressed however....

Just had a mail back from the vendor. 25000 euros for this one, which is on the high side, compared to some of the Italian cars.

Sorry but I hate the colour scheme on this one, the blue is non original, too light, the seats look OK in black, but why the red carpets?? looks like a real miss-match.  I know the Luzzago one is expensive but it is much more original and I am sure you could restore the interior, it looks better than the interior of my B50 before I restored it.

It looks as if the red carpets and black seats could be an original colour combination, I had an email from Steve Katzman in the States with some photos of his car. It looks much better with dark blue paintwork though.

Funny enough the seats look better for having had a bit of wear, not so stark.
