IMHO the plunger should ALWAYS be UP on a roadworthy car. If it is down you either have a brake fluid leak or possibly the seal in the reservoir might itself be faulty. Of course it is also a very useful aid when bleeding the brakes - it has made my wife redundant when bleeding brakes much to her satisfaction!

An additional point for those with late series cars, still fitted with the hydraulic clutch, which uses the same fluid reservoir.

On a 6th series B20 we could not disengage the clutch fully.
Solution was to pump the plunger a few times, then leave it up: PRESTO, clutch worked perfectly!

So for me, echoing Chris, always keep the plunger up, and watch after a long inactivity period if it has moved down.

I see in the owner's manual schematic of the engine bay it does indeed show it in the up position...but no mention of why in the text. I shall try this (when the freeze is over) and see if it is more than a warning of fluid loss/bleed aid.

I don't know the car, but even in a small photo the sill shape looks a bit 'off'.  Hard to say more from what they've published.  Estimate is what resto projects have been selling for, so that might tell you something...

Time to resurrect this thread - just listed for sale at an RM Auction in Australia, estimated at £45-60k!, a very early B20.

Supposedly:
Chassis No. 1047
Engine No. 1001

That would make it the first B20 engine - for the 47th car, does that sound right?

http://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk/classic-car-page/179954/1951-lancia-aurelia-b20-gt-coupe/

Can't believe it will sell for that kind of money, must be worth double...

This auction is actually in London, so the guide price is in Pounds Sterling £70-90,000.
It is still a come and buy me price, as I am sure it will go for more!
Incidently I know of at least 4 other first series cars that have earlier chassis numbers than this one.

Not sure why it jumps out at me but is the cranked gear lever unusual on such an early car?

Not rebuilt, but originally built by Viotti.

That Car, B20-1047, early 1st series built by Viotti, sold for £70.000 hammer price, or £ 78.400 with buyer's premium, at RM London sale, october 31st.

http://www.rmauctions.com/CarDetails.cfm?SaleCode=LF12&CarID=r154&Currency=GBP

I watched the live auction film on the RM website, and that car did not raise much interest.
So it sold for just the low estimate. If it is as good and original as described by RM it was a good deal.

For exactly the same price you could have bought a 1956 Fiat Abarth 750 : I know which car I would prefer...

Does anyone know if that B20 is staying in England?

I looked at this B20: some missing parts and non original finishes but what put me off was the over spray in wheel arches and floor area, and stuck down matting - not a good sign IMHO.

In the meantime I found an interesting discussion between Abarth specialists, on the Abarth 750 I mentionned earlier, makes nice reading.... Shocked

I know we have mentioned this before, but it's yet another restored car that has its brake cylinder plunger in down!

and here's another newly listed restored car... brake plunger down too! http://www.autoscout24.eu/Details.aspx?id=227077967&cd=634952576430000000&asrc=fa
