AURELIA

The Aurelia is one of Lancia's landmark cars, standing deservedly alongside the Lambda and Aprilia as all time true greats. It is the first production car to use a V6 engine engine, and its rear mounted gearbox and inboard brakes offered very good weight distribution.

RM Sotherby’s Auction: Battersea London 2016

RM Sotheby’s sold this Aurelia at their London sale at the start of September 2016, achieving a hammer price of £ 155,000 which after buyers premium works out at £ 173,600. The car was imported into the UK in the 1990’s after spending time in the San Diego Motor Museum.   It was reputed to ... Read More
 

Two Lancia Aurelia B24 Spider’s on site at once

Lancia records suggest that only 59 RHD examples were made in 1954.   Sixty years later, we were pleased to have two examples in our workshops at the same time. The red car is here for some work to make it easier to drive by someone with reduced strength and movement.     We fitted ... Read More
 

Wooden gear lever knob

One of the Aurelias we look after has has a nice Nardi steering wheel fitted.   More recently the original gear lever knob came apart and the owner was keen to have a replacement, but also one which matched the steering wheel. Therefore we were able to have a wooden knob made in a similar ... Read More
 

Aurelia radio blanking panels

We have remade both the early square and later rectangular types of radio blanking panels for Aurelia.      We have also had the ‘wings’ badge remade. Rectangular version illustrated.  They are supplied in primer and will require painting.   These are usually painted dashboard colour, which is normally body colour. The badge is sold ...

Oil Filter conversion

If you consider the paper cartridge type of oil filter that is used on the Aurelia and Flaminia to be messy, and yearn for a modern canister type of filter, then we are pleased to offer a spin-on canister type filter conversion kit which is available for both Aurelia and Flaminia engines. This requires no ... Read More
 

Aurelia alternator conversion

The charging system on an Aurelia can be marginal, especially at night when its raining.   We offer an alternator conversion which mounts in the same place as the original dynamo, and retains the eccentric tensioning system. There are other alternator conversions out there, including some which are disguised to look like a dynamo, but ... Read More
 

Wheel Nuts

We have remade wheel nuts for various models of Lancia which employ a wheel stud and nut fixing rather than the later wheel bolt system. The nuts are available in both open and closed end forms, depending on whether the nut is hidden behind a hub cap or exposed.    They have the correct wide ... Read More
 

Aurelia windscreen wiper motor gears

Original Aurelia windscreen wiper motor gears are not durable and the teeth can wear, leaving the wipers stationary in a dead zone on the screen.   We have remade gears from a more durable material and supply as a pair, one quadrant gear and one round gear.
 

Aurelia water distribution tubes

These water distribution tubes are often in poor condition or have corroded away entirely.   These tubes have been remade by Omicron and we can supply with the larger core plug.    The smaller core plug is often in good condition and does not usually need to be replaced.  
 

Propshaft Balancing

Aurelias and Flaminias can suffer from excessive propeller shaft vibration which can be difficult to cure.  Lancia originally balanced the propshaft as a complete assembly, but over the past 60 or so years the paint markings have long since vanished, and the propshaft has been taken to pieces and assembled several times, often without making ...

Electronic Ignition

For quite a number of years we were unconvinced of the values of aftermarket electronic ignition systems.   They were fairly expensive, yet surprisingly unreliable, but the technology has matured over the past 20 years and it is now time to look again at the various options.   The newer systems are reliable, and the old ...
