The last time I saw one go through auction was this one:

http://www.coys.co.uk/auctions/lot.php?auction=67&id=53341

which sold for 45k.

This was not a bone-fide Competizione, but a seemingly period modified car. Given that Fanalone prices have gone up about 25% in the last two years in Europe I suppose this would be around the 55k mark now. I guess an original would be around 50-75% more? Ask Neal Shepherd  Grin

The "Ally S1 Sport RHD sold for under 7k last month" mentioned above is the one bought by Nick Wells, who has joined and been welcomed to the LMC. I have encouraged Nick to join the forum.

i hope the brakes can be sorted.i was fortunate to get a whole set of correctly sized brand new dunlop piston assemblies at the time i needed them.i dont know if these are still available in the appropriate bore sizes and have wondered what effect the jaguar etc.spec.ones would have[ assuming these can be fitted to the fulvia calipers]i look forward to seeing the car.best regards richard

If anyone needs a copy I have a CD which shows what Dunlop Brake parts were used on various makes of car so a direct comparison can be made to see what is compatible.
I'm sure I've seen in Classic & Sports car someone who can supply parts for Dunlop Brakes, occaisionally they do turn up on ebay but at horrendous prices.

There was a Series 2 Zagato that sold at Padova this year;http://www.coys.co.uk/auctions/lot.php?auction=95&id=57406 (not sure if the link is correct but Coys have the results) it sold for E14750 and is probably a closer match to this car in terms of value than the Series 1 replica Competizione from 2007. I can remember seeing the car at Richards many years ago and being very impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. As to brakes I could probably have a set of stainless pistons made up at a resonable cost.

At the Padova autojumble this year there was a Dutchman selling stainless steel brake cylinders made from T3-04 steel as direct replacements for Dunlop wheel cylinders in a range of bores from 1.5" to 2.25".
rising in increments of 1/8". They were not cheap but of course should last almost for ever and he told me he had sold 'hundreds' at the show. I seem to remember that the rubbers he used were made from something a little special as opposed to original Dunlop rubber seals.
(An esteemed LMC member once told me that my wheel cylinders which I had relined in stainless steel would wear out the rubbers more quickly that the original because stainless steel was itself more abrasive that the original and also because stainless steel didnt 'hold' the brake fluid as well.)

I think the abrasion and 'holding' fluid are red herrings, it is a function of the m/c finish that determines the ability to 'hold' fluid as in a honed engine bore. The abrasion is a function of the surface finish- ie is it polished, superfinished etc.

Omicron used to offer an exchange stainless steel lined cylinder service. I had a set on my 2c and have them on the Fanalone. Experienced no problems with them.

Yes,
I believe the comments about stainless steel being harder on the rubber seals is a red herring. I have never had any problem.
The prices quoted at Padova ranged from 1.5" @ Euro 198.50 each + VAT to 2.25" @ Euro 228.45 each + VAT.
Not cheap but nevertheless beautifully made.

not cheap, but good value if you need them.a full set of eight would obviously represent a considerable investment for the home restorer of a fulvia on a budget [20% of the cars market value inc. m/c servo /pipes /hoses etc.i spent a similar amount on mine -taking into account inflation/exchange rates- and have not regretted the cost for a moment enjoying the benefits of a good braking system

Admittedly it was a few years ago, but I had no difficulty getting new Dunlop piston units from Jaguar suppliers- SNG Barratt, because of the early E-type and Mk2 Jaguars.   (There will be other suppliers, I am sure).   2 1/8" fronts are okay.   It is the rears that present the problem and I suspect that only 1.5" units will be available new (as used on the Jags.).   Fulvias/Flavias are 1 5/16 or 1 3/8" or 1 7/16" (I think), dependent on the model.   (For the sake of getting a new unit I opted for 1.5" although it was being matched to the Coopercraft 4 piston front caliper)   You could always try experimenting with different grades of pads to get the correct balance front to rear?   o/e pads appear on eBay, and also EBC are listing "Green Stuff" and "Red Stuff" new pads.
