Silver relic: 1951 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT

It had been a long time since we stumbled upon an Aurelia B20 GT in these conditions, we sincerely believed that all those few around were now only restored specimens.

But here we are always amazed: we have no idea where is the shed from which this B20 was pulled out, but it has certainly been in these conditions for a long, long time. The seller says this is a “pre-series” car (chassis #B20-1052) but we didn’t understand what that implies, on the other hand the combo color with silver exterior and burgundy interior is very distinctive and elegant, and it’s not even easy to find on the B20 , regardless of which series it is.

The car, although it needs a restoration, has fortunately not been touched or messed up in the past and still retains some remarkable details such as the Nardi steering wheel and the Nardi fuel kit with double carburetor and special air filter, the bodywork is dry and all the original components seem to be in their place: it is very rare to find such an example. Find it for sale at $89,500 here in Astoria, NY.
