Life rushes by guys, some periods are slow and never ending, and the enjoyable parts which zip by!

I'm still on the look out for an interior, the only one I ever located was in Australia, but couldn't bring myself to spend twice it's value in getting it here!

Needless to say I've enjoyed most of the B12 restoration so far, except when left in lurch by Hungarian body guy who upped sticks with no warning and went back home.

As ever met some wonderfully talented, interested and wholesome guys into Lancias, long may it continue. How ever as Lancia left the UK back the 90s, the age profile of members is shifting to the 60/70/80s range now , but membership is holding up.

This is the colour it will be by next week, would have loved a coupe version but economics dictated otherwise!

I would have thought the saloon version is probably rarer than the coupe and after seeing a few Lancia saloons over here, Fulvia, Appia, Aprilia etc., they are really nice places to be

Beautiful colour. The late Don Wright (OZ Lancia guru) had a B20 very close to, if not the same colour. I drove Don's car a few times, and what a great machine! Once, when I was tootling along, Don said "Give it a bit of 'kerp', son". So I did. He was a master engine builder, and the cam was a bit warm, and when got to about 3k RPM it suddenly burst into life! I know where the B20 is, and if it ever comes on the market, I'll be there...

Don restored this 1924 Lancia Lambda, which is now mine. :) The B20 is in that shed, by the way!...

Wonderful machines, light years ahead of all other marques in the 20s!

Even though they made multiples more berlinas compared to coupes, because of the competition pedigree many more B20s were restored and survived. But ask any B20 owner and they'll all say the berlina was a much better car!

Thornley Kelham have restored many Aurelias, even gone as far as developing a series called "Outlaw" B20s.......... opinions please........

The internals of the gearbox, note the transaxle comes as a unit , rear wheel drive, clutch, brakes and gearbox, give an almost perfect weight distribution.
