While the Superleggera Touring coupe, or Sport Zagato are often associated with the Flaminia, it's actual roots are derived from the Pininfarina variety - a succession of the Florida II (also designed by Pf), and an unmistakably beautiful car. With two doors removed, and a slightly shorter wheelbase, the coupe still offered a surprising amount of room for two rear-seat occupants... something hardly considered by Touring and completely void in the Zagato versions.

The Pf Flaminia retained the 2.5L V-6 of Aurelia fame. The rear mounted trans-axle and de Dion suspension (now with a panhard rod) were also continued, though the car was updated to a double wishbone front and disc brakes all around.Slightlyheavier than the offerings from other coach houses, it was a true GT car and appreciably more practical! Reliability was a well known and appreciated standard of the Lancia company... Read on below for a superb example of this renowned quality.

This car is an incredible representation of the car that Lancia made so popular. A neatly done older restoration, walking around the car affords a close-up view of the build quality that made Lancia a world-class marque. Opening any of the moving panels rewards you, showing off a remarkably clean interior, engine bay and trunk - restored in the 1980's to an original-like quality. Even exiting this car is pleasurable, as you notice the ease and authority of closing the doors. A repaint in 1985is not without some wear, but it has held up well and compliments the patina in a presentable fashion. This car was a long-time resident of the dry, Americansouthwest (Southern CA and NV). As such,this isa very solid and dry car; a piece for the true Lancia enthusiast.

Not only pretty, this is a running and driving example with some major recent service by Classic Investments. The entire fuel system has been gone through, including cleaning and lining the fuel tank, replacing fuel lines, fuel pump, and servicing the carburetor. Multiple hoses have been replaced, and the entire ignition system has been serviced as well. The braking system has also been gone through and serviced to keep the car stopping well. Along with all of that, regular maintenance has been performed and a few miscellaneous issues have been sorted out. All of this amounts to over $9000 of recent work. The engine has been compression checked and has solid compression numbers, availableupon request. The engine was overhauledin 1984 while the car underwent paint service. Obviously well cared for, this car has just emerged from a 20 year residency in a large Lancia collection by a private individual and now awaits her next curator.

We have an extensive history file - and know of all the previous owners going back to at least1973. There are a number of service records and documents from every previous owner that really document the historyof this vehiclewell. There are four previous owners on record, with the most recent owner being a noted Lancia collector who had possession of the vehicle for about 20 years. The owner previous to the collector owned the car from 1980-1995, and performed a thoughtful restorationon the car. He refinishedthe exterior, which has held up extremelywell since 1984, as well as rebuilt the engine. This rebuild included all new bearings, new pistons, and new cylinder liners. This owner also replaced some foam in the seats, but did not replace the actual covers, which appear to be original and are in excellent shape.
