One in the hemisphere: 1951 Lancia Aurelia B50 Coupé by Farina

Indeed, the seller says that this special Aurelia built 63 years ago by Stabilimenti Farina (“Pinin” Farina’s brother) is the only one in the US. Other three coupé and one convertible cars like this are known to exsist.

This car has an aluminium body with the exception of the doors and outer rockers: that’s good because you don’t have rust issues, that’s bad because you need a master craftsman to make the panels straight. These cars need a lot of knowledge to be properly restored: you can consign a car like this to just anyone.

The engine is not the original unit but the seller says that the V6 inside the car is healthy and runs strong. Many original parts are missing so they have been replaced by other parts from same period Lancia’s. It will be hard to see another coachbuild Lancia project like this for sale, so do the math and then decide. Find it for sale here in Purcellville, VI, with bidding at $20,600 and reserve price not met.
