I am re-upholstering my car and have decided to have leather seats (more detail later on the diary page if interested) rather than the cloth which I cannot match

It means that I have to do the whole interior , including the headlining (not in leather , I might add) so my request is:

Has anyone got photos of a leather-clad 2nd series car ?
Has anyone got photos of the headlining with the pull cord for the roller blind in place ?
Has anyone got any general 2nd series interior photos ?

Many thanks

There is a leather Aprilia interior shown on the splendid Ardea site- scroll down on this link: http://www.lancia-ardea.it/Interni.htm

This is a picture of a nice-looking restored interior showing rear window and blind, showing 3 cords but I know no more about the source: http://www.lanciaflavia.it/public_old_foto/3img-1259841428.jpg

There are photos of a nice-looking restored late Aprilia on the Brian Classic web site, with some good interior shots.

Buon lavoro!

P.S. I would urge caution on the colour you eventually choose.

The Italian Wikipedia entry for the Aprilia says that the available colours for leather on a series 2 car are "marrone" and "rosso", brown and red, the same as for the series 1 Lusso. If this is right, the different colours found on series 1 leather in England are probably a frolic of Alperton, who would I think have  trimmed a lot of the cars in question.

The link to the Italian article is: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancia_Aprilia

And another thing, concerning matching your present cloth- you will see on the Ardea interiors page a number of fabrics, apparently to original specification, by a firm called Erreffe, who also have a website of their own, just in case you haven't discovered this firm during your own researches.

Cesare
Thank you very much (mille grazie !) - a great help. I had not seen the Ardea site before and it is excellent. I have been looking for an Ardea pickup for some time because they are great little cars !

The only problem now  is to find someone with an original headlining to copy because mine is quite different

Thanks again

You could take a trip to Forbello or the new Museum in Turin that have Aprilia....

Hi you can buy the material cloth from elvizo in Italy I have done one Appia,one Aurelia and one aprilia rooflining in the correct stuff they send samples out. You can do the seat too but it's expensive more than leather.
Brian Cates have just done a set of red leather for my aprilia with then a cloth rooflining it looks really nice and half the price.

my interior is original,the same as the photo from Cesare, (in fact I'd swear that's my car although i don't know how...).If further photo's can help I can lie upside down in the car in the garage and take some shots..... Smiley

Thank you both

Christo, indeed Brian has told me about the seats and headlining he has done for your car and I would love to see the finished results. Sounds lovely.

Mr Scarpia, I would be most obliged if you could take as many photos as possible of the headlining- it appears that there are longitudinal seams as well as transverse seams. With enough detail I am sure we can have a decent crack at reproducing something near original. My first Aprilia had the original headlining and the correct silk blind and I would love to recreate it ! I am trying to track down my old car as well - I believe Gerald Batt is the new owner of YRV 700.

By the way I am not offering to pay for the chiropractor !!

no problem,I'll avoid too many acrobatics.I'll take some photo's in the weekend if i can.
now i found my glasses i see the seats in car in the link below (that i thought were the same as my car) are recovered but the headlining looks the same. The ardea site is rather nice.trim looks very similar to the aprilia.
Who would of anticipated that having cars retrimmed in leather would turn out to be the economical option...

Thanks
Look forward to seeing them ! Have ordered the headlining material from the source suggested by Cesare above and the leather from Connolly's.
Trying to get my seats back to the UK at a sensible price for Brian Cates to get started on ....
