This 1963 Lancia Flaminia 3B Coupe is a five owner car that was extensively mechanically restored to the highest standards including full engine rebuild by Tommaso Gelmini of GPS Classic in Soragna. Tommaso’s work has won many top awards at Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este.
The car was bought new in Reggio Calabria by a gentleman born in 1917 and lived there with him until sold on to a new owner (born 1927) in Rome in 1973. It’s believed the current Ascot Gray paintwork was undertaken by the second owner shortly after his acquiring the car which remained with him 32 years at which time it was sold on to a third older gentleman owner (born 1929) in Faenza in 2005. This fellow, then in his late 70s, commissioned the very high quality partial interior cosmetic restoration you now see (i.e. new leather and carpets) and left the rest as completely original as possible. It comes with the Roma plates now affixed as well as an as new original Italian language owner’s manual and the original Italia PRA Libretto (which includes the handwritten delivery and ownership history down to the names, address and dates of birth etc. of each Italian owner!). The custom made car cover and windshield sunscreen are included as well.
