Hi,  Thanks for the extra photos.  The car looks terrible!
The 6th series is a 1958 B20S chassis#B20S-1846 with engine# B20-5513 with 17k miles bought in 1966, but I've not heard anything more so far.
B20S-1846 is a late one.  I am aware of the following later ones having survived:

Chassis             Country                Engine
B20S-1849   Germany/USA:       B20.5511
B20S-1850   Australia           B20.5519
B20S-1852   ?   
B20S-1853   ?   
B20S-1856   Italy
B20S-1857   USA:    
B20S-1858   Italy: (From 2013)   
B20S-1859   USA:  (New York)  B20.5528

That B20 looks to be in fantastic condition compared to the B10 I saw recently.

Strangely enough Paul I believe the 6th series we were discussing last week has just been sold by Gullwing Motorcars:

http://www.gullwingmotorcars.com/1958-lancia-b20-s-coupe-c-1971.htm?make=ALL&model=ALL&bodytype=ALL&stock=19819&&utm_source=%23+19819+1958+Lancia+Aurelia+B20S++By+Gullwing+Motor+Cars&utm_campaign=%28UA-3129993-103%29&utm_medium=email

Now what happened to B20-1150 and the Zagato engine?

Well, the car we were discussing was B20S-1846.
I've emailed Gullwing this week about the car they are selling and they have taken a deposit on it, but wont tell me the chassis number.
Why do think the Gullwing car is B20S-1846?

I contacted the owner of B20-1150, but no reply.

Because I saw it in the garage of the owner of 1150, around 100 meters away from the wreck of 1150, a few years ago.......

The owner would not let me touch the car, go near it, open the engine compartment, thus no way to record the serial number. Also, no photography.

They wanted to sell me the 1150 car - as a restoration project with a price more suited to a pretty good project car.

This car was at that time definitely not for sale. Though I did also see the pile of Nardi engine parts which apparently came from 1150, lying in the corner, well-preserved. I believe the intention was to transplant those parts onto the 6th series, as the 1150 had a 3rd series 2500cc engine (as you already know).

The extra wiper motor is a favourite feature.  If I'd have had mine another year or so it would have had one.  I've always wondered if they tended to be an uprated item from a plane or a boat to REALLY shift some water or just a spare given the weakness of the original.  A generation prior would have had the windscreen open to see better in filthy weather.

The Perspex bug screen I've seen on other sports racers but not on an Aurelia.  The protection for the lamps I've never seen before at all.

That mirror is an interesting, and sensible, addition.  I like the little spots angled round the corner or to pick out the sides of the road in very poor visibility.  I'd love to see a photo from behind to see what lighting is available for reversing...  I wonder if it carried an extra battery or if the dynamo was uprated at all?

Aw heck. Early B20s in the US are very rare. A friend found this in a junk yard in Wisconsin, just a couple hundred miles from me.

There was a nice period cutaway in Viva Lancia some time ago showing all the features of the Aurelia rally cars. It showed the perspex light protectors etc. I think I'm right in thinking there were even drinks bottles fitted inside with tubes for long distance rallies.

Finding an Aurelia in a scrapyard in Wisconsin............................how many more can there be lurking around the world?

This seems to be a third series. Aluminium boot lid and the early door handles. Wheels too.

I would suggest 2nd, based on the rear body shape and front screen mount. Geoff?

Agree - I think the rear is a 2nd series.  Chassis number please!!

This car was known to the Registro Aurelia Italiano in 2006, but so far no more information, although quite a few recently restored 2nd series have appeared.
