Hi All

No connection, but thought it would be of interest to a few of you. Looks like a few years work, but also looks like it can be rescued from the pics, but I guess as normal an inspection would tell a whole lot more...

Looks a good basis for anyone with the time and money, aircleaner doesn't look standard? Nardi?

The air cleaner is standard for a B12, but it is the only Aurelia that has one shaped like this.

Looks possible but I would need to see what condition the sills and floor are in. Complex bodiesv - even more so than B20's in many ways. Any missing parts could be found over time in Italy i guess.
Has anyone seen the car?

I enquired of the condition:

"The bodyshell is sound, the floors are also in good shape, but it needs new sills, at least one, but i may assume that the other one will be in poor condition as well."

A very prompt and courteous response - for the right price it could well be worth a punt and the trouble to import it.

Jonathan, are you tempted? It would be a nice addition to the Fanalone!

B10

Sold for 2,650 - or about 3.5k landed in the UK.

If the base structure isn't rusty (and the photos do look quite promising) then that's very sensible money for a nice project car.  Grille for one of these isn't too hard to find (unlike B20) and seats likewise, though you'll probably have to pay for re-trimming.

Wasn't me anyway.  Hope someone on here bought it and we can hear about the restoration.

2.6k GBP (before transport) sounds cheap, but... how much would it cost to get the 'barn find' project to the condition of this B12, just sold for c. 20k?

I know this one shown doesn't have the same Kudos as a B20GT, but what great value in comparison, I would have thought the barn find would cost more than this, which goes back to generally speaking it's better to take advantage of someone else footing the bill for a restoration Grin
