Hi All !
New to the forum and looking for some advice…
I was going to leave it a few years, but I am so bored with the Covid thing, I am going to buy a Flavia, ( 60's coupe ) always loved Lancia and I adore the shape.
A couple of of things :
Is this an original colour ?, see link...
If it is an original colour ?, is there a name or a Dulux Colour reference, ( for want of a better description ? ), I found a colour chart online, but is massive pixellated when I try to read it...I realise some of the YouTube film is in black and white
How much would a respray be and where is best ?
Also, I love the spotlights in this photo, any idea where to source / what they are ?

Lastly, can you point me in the direction of anything, “ Flavia “ I need to know ?, does it fall into 1000 bits often ?, where to get parts etc ? / manuals etc., grateful for any knowledge...
Thanks a bunch in anticipation, looking forward to the whole experience, good or bad !

Peter.

Flavias by and large are robust and pretty straightforward. Parts generally are available in Italy (Cavalitto) and parts and advice from the Flavia and 2000 Consortium. They are nice to drive - good touring cars - and like a lot (?most ?contentiously) the saloons are under-rated and better than derivatives although some parts are more rarely found.
