Funnily enough I have seen a 4th Series roof section in good condition recently! I wonder how long ago and where the photo was taken? Does anyone know.

Yes, the photo was taken in 2005 in Western Pennsylvania. The car came from northern New York, by the Canadian border. It was owned by an old friend and great Lancia nut named Andrew Ewing. He passed away of natural causes after a good long life, but this car, and a B24 Spider which had been run into a tree and were both purchased as parts cars, were left by the estate to another friend in Pennsylvania.

The Spider was quickly sold to a UK-based dealer and I believe it went to New Zealand and for a restoration.

The B20 was complete, and they had removed the axles only to fit them temporarily on a Spider they were restoring at the time, while the Spider original parts were being reconditioned.

I seriously pleaded with them to sell me this car, pointing out that it was in some sense almost as rare as B24 spider, being one of just 255 of what are considered to be most desirable closed Aurelias.

However, they insisted that the car could not be restored, and it was parted out around 2009 and most of the parts have gone all around the world.

However I bet if you put this on eBay now as a complete car, it would bring $20,000-$30,000 - so I suggest that I was correct.

For the generation for whom these were $500 as running cars and $100 as parts cars, the recent surge in interest was sort of impossible to fathom, even just a few years ago.

I really had the inclination to try to buy it, hold onto it, and see if the economics would allow for a restoration at some future point. But, it was not to be.

Here is a newer one - from 2009:

B20-1150

You spent an entire day hunting for a long-lost B20 in the woods, and find it just as the sun goes down for the day.......

Hi aureliaspider,

B20-1150 is a car I know about.  It belongs to a family in New York  and was bought from J S Inskip in New York on 4 Sept. 1958.
The car seems to have been off road since 1977, but was the subject of correspondence with me in 2009 and 2012 from the son of the owner.  He was not sure what would be done with it, but has a detailed history.  The original engine was probably 1155 but later it had engine B20.2791 which is understood to have belonged in the Zagato Aurelia body#B20-2511.
I shall see if I can find out more.  Here is a photo of the front belonging to the owner.
Paul

Hi Paul--

Yes, I was there, I met the family - I have a lot more photos.

I have to say, I think this one is beyond saving. The same family had a 6th series B20 which was also interesting, they were not selling at that point, but I believe they have since.

The engine itself is in a pretty disasterous state, but they took off all the Nardi stuff and stored inside - therefore someone wishing to make a replica of that Zagato might be able to start with something still on this car. Not sure if they have since sold or moved it, my last communication was in 2009.

Perhaps you know more.......
