Is that an indicator repeater in the pillar?

Well, it makes for a lively discussion!
I would be however very careful, good berlinas are very, very rare! Most have been abused, or just tarted up for a quick sale.
You almost never find a good, original or restored example for sale. When there is one, the asking price is steep, and it stays on the market for years.
Check in Switzerland autoscout24.ch. There are 2 Flaminia berlinas in Lancia blue for sale, one fully restored approximately 10-12 years ago, and another which does not look too bad.
I have seen the expensive one, some years ago, and it really is a good restoration, as it should be for that price! Still, it does not make it desirable, at least to me!
And all the normal ones just make me want to run away, when I think of the work necessary to get them to a good running status, and the size of the wallet required!

Buying anything for me in Switzerland these days seems expensive. Both the cars look alright to me though but more expensive than in say Holland or Italy.
So, what do you think of this one http://www.thegallerybrummen.nl/en_EN/autobedrijf/collectie/4499876/details.html ?

If it's anything like as good as the photos it's a bargain, and at least you have a comprehensive lot of photos that blow up well to have a closer look, but it still needs the mark 1 eyeball to be sure.
Asking price seems reasonable, I'm also impressed by the depth of the doors and sills!
for anyone seriously interested this has got to be worth a look.

Yes, I thought on the whole, it looked good for the money.  There looks like there are things you could improve such as discolouration under the dash and on the door pulls, etc. Also, some of the seat shots almost make it look like its got loose covers on the seats.

On the whole though I think it's worth a look so will go over to Brummen to take a look soon. Dealer frustrating to deal with by email. One line reply to my email list of questions so far!

yes, that looks nice but they are all so far away and getting information out of some of these vendors is proving very difficult. I've had more email contact about the Berlina in Germany this afternoon but still can't get the dealer to tell me what the structural condition of the car is like. The price on this one could be quite good if it doesn't need major bodywork and welding but it seems the only way of finding this out is to actually go and have a look!

Good idea.  Or Belgian for that matter as I have now managed to coax another piece of info out of him that it was registered in Belgium.

I think they had them only on the very earliest cars.

Just had a reply from the Lancia club in Belgium.  They don't know the car unfortunately.
