Many will have seen it before, but this is the first time I have come across the photo, which I think goes rather well with the well known Ernest  Hemingway Aurelia pictures. Are there any more pics of his Flaminia around?

Don't really want to put myself in line for a 'pedant of the month' award, but I think the well known Hemingway Aurelia photos are B21, not B10 (according to the captions I've seen).  Does anyone know better?

Great Flaminia pic by the way, Richard.

I am only the messenger, but that Flaminia photo is quite a shot! these photos suggest B21

Not having the photo to hand, all I can remember is the rubber strip on the front bumper.

Not seen the remainder pics  either, thanks

Here are the front pictures. The small one is from http://velocetoday.com/lifestyle/lifestyle_46.php with the wording "Ernest Hemingway stands beside his Lancia B10 sedan while on a trip through Europe in 1954"

The excellent http://b102283.wordpress.com/2011/12/31/aci-a-rear-view-into-history/#more-413 says B21 for the "ACI sticker" photo. Are these all the same car?

It took me a while to find the source of my near certainty that 'the Hemingway Aurelia' was a B21.  Here it is:

http://www.viva-lancia.com/lancia_fora/read.php?82,327310

This is the only reference that relates these well known pictures to the owner of the car, Kechler, and his driver (Adam de Simon, seen in the photo below).

It seems likely that the model of Aurelia would have been correctly cited in these references.  Apparently they drove more than 13,000 miles around Spain between 30th June and 4th August 1953. An impressive distance on the Spanish roads of the time.
