Flaminia Touring AND Fulvia berlina on the BBC2 last night (Pan Am - American TV series set in the 1960s).

Could not believe my eyes!

I spotted those as well. But I thought it was Flavia Berlina.  Undecided If it's a Fulvia, and looking at the photo now it certainly looks like it,  then it's wrong as the show is set in 1961 and the Fulvia was introduced in 1963.

The show wasn't bad (if you like that sort of thing).

Wasn't there an Aurelia in the shot before too?

The storyline starts in 1963, according to the makers of the series.

I missed that bit  Undecided I assumed it was 1961 due to the Bay of Pigs references  Undecided I shall consider myself wrong in my assumptions and now corrected  Grin Thank you  Wink

Ahh - but if I was being a pedant (perish the thought) it is still wrong, as the colour of the 500 (Positano Yellow) didn't come out until 1969 (I think) and both the 500s are wrong because in 1963 they still had the older 500 "D" bodyshell. The later 500 "F" bodyshell (with the front hinged doors)didn't come out until 1965.....

Still, fun to see them in shot notheless!

I admit to watching it but apart from those few seconds I was dissapointed and don't think I will bother watching anymore, maybe because I remember flying on a 707 although I never saw 1st class!!

More of what my sister saw (did I mention that I don't watch this show myself?)

So in what years and market were dual wing mirrors fitted to Series 1 Fulvias?





She also suggests that Oireland might be a few weeks ahead of the UK in episodes but that the moving version of this Fulvia can be seen here:

Its at about 27mins 10seconds apparently

Wow, guys! I think it's safe to say that I know what everyone will be watching from now on (apart from Alan, of course!)  Grin

The orange one turned out to be a Giulietta upon closer inspection.
