Just arrived here in the UK with a friend of ours is this stunning and very very rare Italian but Right Hand Drive 1960 Lancia Flaminia Coupe Pininfarina. Lovely history and provenance as follows:
Car was purchased from its current owner in Milan. Being one of only 143 produced in original Right Hand Drive form, so exceptionally rare. It was originally ordered through the Lancia dealers SAICAR of Milan for its first owner, Snr Paolo Sanguineti of Torino who owned a major publishing house in Milan.
In the early 2000s when Snr Sanguineti died, ownership passed to his wife & son. It was after this time that it went to Carlo Cappa of Milan a renowned Lancia specialist to be mechanically refreshed (as proven by the plaque fitted to the front grill) then onto its next owner.
Still in its original exterior “Grigio Albany” colour, although that has been refreshed many years ago as proven by the pictures used when it was listed on the Registro Storico Lancia & at the ACI in 1990,showing the car is still in the same condition today! Inside is superb with its stunning conditioned, original “Pelle Marrone” leather interior that has aged beautifully. Roof lining, door cards and dash are more off the same.
Mechanically the 2.5 V6 Single Carburettor engine is still as fresh and clean as the day it was rebuilt by Carlo Cappa. Starting easily and displaying good oil pressure when hot. Gearbox, differential, brakes etc all operate as designed and combine to make it a very nice driving car.
Within the asking price will be full UK registration. It will be registered on a Historic tax exempt status, with an age related registration number and although exempt from MOT it will have one carried out prior to sale.
With the car is the original tool roll, ASI certificate of homologation certificate and “Gold Plaque” (No 4534 issued 1990) plus the original pictures used as proof originality. The certificate of Historic Registration Lancia Torino dated 1984, it even has the original suppling dealer’s sticker in the back window! Plus various owners’ handbooks.
