and what became of this one i wonder?

That looks like the Maltese mid-engined (289 V8) drag racer...  I saw the car when it was at Andrew Thorogood's garage in Acre Lane SW2 about a decade ago.  The inner structure of the car had been butchered, doors welded up, etc.  A huge number of missing parts and, at the time, a totally impractical prospect as a restoration.  Last I heard the car was in the North East with  Alan Morton, who was thinking of fitting a Flaminia or Alfa GTV6 drivetrain which struck me as a slightly sensible thing to do in the circumstances.

The B24 is as captioned the Brussles Motor Show car, it is now owned by Leo Van Hoorick who has restored it back to its original colours with the original wire wheel style hub caps.

Well Richard, I have to hold my hands up...mea culpa!

I had been looking for a project for a while, had partly restored a number of classics over the years, mostly Citroens.

Then caught the Italian car bug a number of years ago, part restored/re-commissioned a 1972 Alfa coupe 2 years ago then spotted this baby.

I didn't pay the price on the ebay site......Smiley...due to fact that the winner reneged!

As I type its being transported from Porto, Portugal, collected at 3pm today after a few delays.

I've noted to Stuart my intention to do a blow by blow blog type account on the forum as it progresses, but not starting work until next May/June. In the interim have been doing lots of research and have located a grill, plus endless sites and contacts and info from Aurelia owners in the UK, USA, France and hopefully Ireland.

If every member wants to wish me luck on this thread please do so as a few have already done so.......!!

Wonder why!

Good Luck in the nicest possible way, I'm sure I spotted some Aurelia parts last time I was in Cavellito's, although that was in 2006!

Thanks Brian, most parts are about plus need a bit of patience to track them down.

Good luck Parisien, I'm sure you'll have a huge amount of fun, plus a bit of heartache, restoring your find. The two go together, but are all part of the joy of restoring an Aurelia.

Whereabouts are you  based ?  My B20, under restoration, is in south east Essex.

Well, after waiting for 2 1/2 weeks for it to meander its way across Spain, then make its way to Hampshire it should have been delivered a few hours ago....but guess what the driver missed the boat....!

Not given a time but it will be today, because they have another car to take back to GB today too!

Next post will be pics of the car in the lock up, on its own thread as a restoration blog.

It may have missed the boat, but at least its safe and sound !!!!  I sincerely hope you are pleasantly surprised by the car, I think William was with his Spanish purchase.

I can't wait to see the photos and am really looking forward to the restoration blog. Hopefully it will be quicker and easier than mine.

Best wishes,

Frank,
I think I saw that you were after a Weber 40 DC type carb for an Aurelia. I might be able to help you.

Good luck - wonderful cars in every detail.  I only hope you have as much fun with it as I anticipate as a specator.
