It has been a warm winter here on the east coast of the United States and with even warmer weather arriving shortly, the thoughts of owning a convertible have been running through my mind once again. An Italian convertible would certainly be a treat, especially one as nice as this restored Lancia Flaminia convertible. Designed and built by Carrozeria Touring, the GT and Convertible had aluminum bodies and a rear mounted transaxle, mated to a 2.5 or 2.8 liter V6 engine. Fewer than 850 were built with production of the convertible halting in 1964.
Car completely restored to factory condition.
At a little over $100,000 USD, this type of sports car is for serious collectors. True, this is Ferrari money, but this car is the thinking man's exotic. I've seen a few Flaminia convertibles in rather ragged condition on the market, and even these still command princely sums. This one, for sale in the north of Italy, is in remarkable condition and certainly would be a good investment, as to restore one would take considerable time and efforts in sourcing parts.
