The Lancia Flaminia, named after the Via Flaminia, the road leading from Rome to Rimini, was produced from 1957 to 1960. It was Lancia’s flagship at that time, replacing the Aurelia. Throughout its lifetime it saw various versions as saloons, coupés and cabriolets. Even four stretched presidential limousines were built by Pininfarina for state occasions. The Flaminia coupé and convertible were coachbuilt cars with bodies from several prestigious Italian coachbuilders. The coupé models outsold the four-door Berlina, which was a rare occurrence at the time, considering the coupés were considerably more expensive. Carrozzeria Touring designed and built the aluminum bodied two-door versions of the Flaminia, which can be easily distinguished by their four-round headlights (rather than two on Pininfarina Flaminias), and a shorter cabin. The wheelbase was decreased significantly for the GT and Convertibile, allowing for a maximum of two seats to be mounted. The GT was a coupé, while the Convertibile was the cabriolet version. The GTL, introduced in 1962, was a 2+2 version of the GT with a slightly longer wheelbase. In total, only 847 Lancia Flaminia 3C 2500 Touring Convertibles were built

Vincenzo Lancia was a talented racer turned brilliant engineer who formed the company that bore his name in 1906. Vincenzo pushed the boundaries of automobile design throughout his life and set Lancia on a path of innovation that it maintained until the 1970’s when it was taken over by Fiat. Lancia production cars were responsible for many automotive firsts, such as the monocoque body, independent front suspension, 5-speed transmission, complete electrical system, and perhaps their best known achievement – the V6 engine. Lancia cars have always been exceptionally well built and well-engineered. When many Italian were known for their somewhat relaxed standards of build quality, Lancia went and beyond to ensure their cars were the very best they could be. Often likened to an Italian equivalent of Citroen or SAAB, Lancia cars were always just a bit different, but were brilliant to drive and experience firsthand. By nature of their designs, Lancia was never a large volume producer, so almost all of their models through the 1970’s are highly prized by enthusiasts. The Flaminia replaced the legendary Aurelia as Lancia’s flagship model and was produced from 1957-1970. It was offered in a variety of body styles built by several different Italian coachbuilders. Only the four-door sedan was produced in-house, with all other cars were specially coachbuilt. The Flaminia featured either a 2.5 or 2.8 liter version of their gorgeous V6 engine, a rear-mounted transaxle and deDion rear suspension. The 2.8 liter V6 was good for 150 horsepower and made the Flaminia a wonderful mid-range GT car. This 1964 Flaminia Coupe features attractive bodywork by Pininfarina along with that delectable 2.5 Liter engine and 4-speed manual transaxle. The dark silver paint color is perfectly suited to the crisp Pininfarina two-door coachwork. Chrome trim is in good original condition, with a few blemishes here and there, but largely very pleasing for a driver quality car such as this. Bodywork and paint are in fine order, with good crisp shutlines and clean reflections. It is appropriately detailed on original steel wheels, period correct Michelin tires and even a set of proper Carello headlamps. The interior is particularly appealing, trimmed in black upholstery with dark gray carpet bound in light gray. Plenty of chrome trim and accents (including the classic Pininfarina ash tray) create a real sense of occasion when sliding behind the wheel. The four passenger cabin is exemplary 1960’s Italian: Simple, elegant, and finely detailed with a perfectly judged luster. The compact, 2.5 liter V6 rests comfortably in a tidy and very original engine bay. Some of the surfaces have been freshened up, but the engine and under-hood fittings appear largely original. The correct spare, original jack and tools are present. Maintenance records will be included, showing plenty of service work indicating the car has been used regularly and well maintained. This Lancia Flaminia is first and foremost a driver’s car. The V6 is strong and runs great, and the chassis is solid and tight. The Flaminia combines exceptional engineering with high build quality and quintessential Italian style. This is a very fine, very well maintained original example of one of Lancia’s best, ready to be thoroughly enjoyed by its next owner.
