It is 4855mm long and 1750mm wide (15'11'' X 5'9'' in old money)

He didn't mention the price, but i am sure it won't be  as cheap as the one in Florence, which
looks tempting, but untill you have seen it in person you cannot tell.

It's just soooo comforting to know that there are more people with the same disease.... (why doesn't my wife still not understand???)

Interesting Richard.

I wonder what the button on the back of the front seat where the grab handles come together is for?

Also it doesn't seem to have the automatic wash wipe button on the wiper knob on the dash board.

Frank looks like an ashtray pull knob to me.

It says in the text  ''there is even a button on the back of the front seats, supposedly used when the drivers attention was required.''

The price is now quoted as 14,995.

And I was going to say something silly like 'Used to order a G&T' so not so far off.......

That is a whole lot of car for the money.

Quality AND quantity on that one.  What a machine...  What jumped out from the photos is how upright the screen pillar is looking in through the door, and from that how much the screen wraps round.

Ade,
 I still think it's an ashtray as if you look to the right of it you can see the push button to call the Pilot Roll Eyes

Brian, I think we are talking about different things, the button for the intercom is to the right of the ashtray (which has a big black knob on it, as you say) and the thing right in the centre where the two grab handles meet is a screw head!

I am very curious to know what a good Flaminia Berlina drives like? This one looks fabulous, seems to be in excellent condition  and it has the big engine....but what is the driving experience like?
Can anyone comment from experience of similar (before I dare to go and look at it!!).

Some years ago (probably 1997 or thereabouts) I was driven round South London in one by Martin Buckley. This was quite a well-known car at the time, Lancia Blue, grey cloth and with an air-conditioning unit fitted below the dash.

Mr B drove it like he stole it. Using the limited grip offered by its ancient tyres he hung the tail out round lines of parked cars in a square beside Brixton Hill. When we slowed to go round the one-way system at Tulse Hill, I was able to enjoy the amazing detailing of the trim around the A pillars.

I remember thinking at the time that, if he wanted to drive like that he should have a different car. He didn't strike me as a good custodian...

Sadly, I didn't get to drive it, but as a passenger it was clear that the car could be driven in a number of different styles without breaking sweat. A lot of old Lancias are like that, I think.

This is the Buckley car, which he wrote about his current monthly mag at the time. 2.8, A/C.

Around about then he also hustled it around Goodwood at the LMC Track Day, I'll see if I can find the photos,as I remember it was quite impressive.
