You Could Own A 1964 Lancia Flaminia 3C Touring Convertible

By Bring A Trailer / Posted on January 25, 2019

This 1964 Lancia Flaminia 3C is one of 180 convertibles bodied by Carrozzeria Touring and is powered by a 2.8-liter V6 equipped with three Weber carburetors. It is finished in red over a biscuit leather interior and shows 85k miles. Equipment includes a rear-mounted 4-speed manual transaxle, De Dion rear suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, a body-colored removable hardtop, a soft top with matching boot cover, and a Becker Mexico AM/FM radio. This Flaminia was purchased by the current owner in the mid 1980s and is now being offered on dealer consignment in Connecticut. The sale includes spares, recent service records, factory literature, and a clean California title in the current owner’s name.

Aluminum coachwork from Carrozzeria Touring wears an older repaint in red that is described by the seller as dull. Imperfections are shown in the gallery below along with overspray on some underside components. A color-matched factory hardtop is included, and the soft top is reportedly in need of replacement.

16″ steel wheels wear Lancia hubcaps and 165×400 Michelin tires. Damage to one of the wheels is shown in detail in the gallery. The car is equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes, which are inboard in the rear.

The cabin features biscuit leather upholstery with a matching boot cover, door panels, and interior panels. Features include brown carpets, a body-colored dashboard with a black pad, a Becker Mexico AM/FM radio, and a 3-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel.

Jaeger instrumentation consists of a 6,500-rpm tachometer with an integrated clock and a 140-mph speedometer containing indicators for oil pressure and fuel level along with oil and water temperature. The 5-digit odometer shows 85k miles, less than 100 of which were added by the current owner.

The car was not running when purchased by the current owner, and the seller reports that it was returned to running condition approximately seven years ago. The 2.8-liter V6 is paired with a rear-mounted 4-speed manual transaxle. A compression test was performed in December 2018, and the results in the gallery below show between 170-175 psi across all cylinders. A tune-up was also performed at that time by Auto Turismo Sport of New Milford, Connecticut, who reports that the three Weber carburetors need to be rebuilt.
