For a generation Aurelias were run on shoe strings by DIY mechanics, and if anything its easier to do that now than ever before.   In terms of "big problems" I sold a gearbox for 300.   As for engines all the parts are available new which makes the second hand bits "paper weight" prices.   I had a couple of sets of pistons and liners in usable condition from engines when people thought "having spent all this money on labour I may as well put new bits in".

As Kevin has said, they are not difficult to work on.  They are pretty basic, all fairly obvious, but different.   For example the pot joints have few parts, make few demands, but are different.  The clutch is weak on a hot B20 but easy to get to and on a saloon I imagine no issue.  Propshaft balance is critical but odds are it will be fine, if not there's a few places to get it fixed.  Problems like brake judder will 9 times out of 10 be due to a lack of use.

I'd love another...  As the years roll on the saloons have almost as much appeal as the GTs for all an SII B20 with a column change and bench would be my "just won the lottery" choics..  Must say that early saloon at the AGM was spectacular, and that blue one in the pics gorgeous.   Any chance of a dashboard picture?

David,

I think ‘that blue one’ might have been Ron Francis’s 1951 Stabilimenti-Farina bodied Aurelia, which quite rightly won an award in the Concours. If so, see snaps below.

Colin,

The "blue one"  meant is XER 350 pictured in this thread.  Its just the right blue, sits so nicely, has those "waterfall" headlights and what I assume are aluminium bumpers.  The wing/bonnet alloy trim is lovely as well, as on Appias. 

I know the Aprilia is your favorite but for me that era was Lancia's peak - just before the money ran out and they realised why nobody else built cars that way...

There is a B10 (although it is listed as a B51) saloon for sale on the Germany classic car web site mobile.de  The body looks OK and the interior is original, although I think (German not too good) it needs engine work. Asking price £15,500.

Martins B21 is a very nice car, he has been on the Sliding Pillar rally a couple of times in it. Photo attached.
There is also a B10 for restoration on Prewar car (post war classics) @ £5,250.
