Aurelia’s B20 are not usual to spot in the U.S. but sometimes when you find them they reserve big surprises like the former MM car published few months ago and stored for many years in a barn in Oregon.
This car clearly comes from UK (at least the plate says it) and it is said to be all original: for sure most parts look original even if it’s strange to see a red B20: usually the owner of these cars were whealty mid-aged (or older) professionals who used to choose understated colors like silver or light blue.
Another not-original part are the taillights: those Triumph TR-3 lights don’t even fit well on the back of the car. If this is a 5th series car that means that it’s very rare: just 120 B20 were made between the spring of 1956 and the spring of 1957. And, seeing the two-tone paint dashboard, this car is likely to belong to that series. Find it for sale at $139,500 here in Astoria, NY.
