Description

French title

- Rare and desirable model
- Same owner for the last 35 years
- Sophisticated engineering

This car has been in the hands of a Lancia enthusiast for more than 35 years. An honorary member of the Lancia Classic Club, he acquired the car towards the end of the 1970s from a dealer who had discovered it in Brittany. Having kept the car for four years as it was, the owner then undertook a restoration that allowed him to use the car regularly for the next three decades.
An expert on Italian engineering, he was able to rebuild the engine and the clutch himself. Re-fitted in 2013, the engine runs very well, and the owner has informed us that the car has covered just 2,000 km since. The body had new paintwork a few years ago at which time the sills and jacking points were renewed. In 2014, the front brake calipers were replaced. The odometer showed 47 396 km when we inspected the car, and the original, preserved interior displays a lovely patina. The bumpers, being re-chromed at the time of photographing, will be delivered with the car.
It comes with very rare Borrani wheels and will be sold with a bracket for spotlights that used to be fitted.
This is the most highly developed and desirable version of the Flaminia Zagato, equipped with a 152 bhp engine and triple carburettors. Moreover it is a rare model of which just 150 examples were produced in this series.
