Selling a 1962 Lancia Flaminia Sport
A two-seat Coupe designed and built by coachbuilder Zagato for the Italian automaker Lancia & Co., the Lancia Flaminia Sport was considered the top-of-the-line luxury sports car for the automaker during the era. First unveiled in 1958, the Flaminia Sport would use a shorter wheelbase version of the Lancia Flaminia GT chassis. It would offer a quite distinctive Coupe design in a rounded aluminum body, and would boast pop-out handles as one of its distinguishing features. Many of the characteristics that Zagato was famous for would also stand out on the 1962 Lancia Flaminia Sport (and other model years), including the double bubble roof and massive amounts of glass around the passenger’s compartment. The 1962 Lancia Flaminia Sport also holds the distinction of being one of the first triple-carbureted versions of the 2.5L V6 engine. A “3C” badge on top of the air intake, just behind the chrome trim, would signify this change. Otherwise, the 1962 model-year was relatively unchanged from the previous models. As an owner, you may also recognize that the 1962 Flaminia Sport offered an additional reversing light below the rear bumper. When selling your 1962 Lancia Flaminia Sport, this reversing light is one of the ways you can prove to buyers that your particular model is an original 1962 example. Of course, the best way to achieve this is to compare engine and chassis numbers to historic records.
1962 Lancia Flaminia Sport Seller’s Guide
It should be noted that having a triple-carbureted version of the Lancia Flaminia Sport does not necessarily indicate that you have a 1962 model. Zagato had offered tuning kits that substituted the original double Solex carburetors with three Weber ones almost from the start of production. Educated buyers will know this important fact and will certainly want additional verification that your model is indeed an original. As such, one of the best ways to ensure the buyer is familiar with the car is to schedule a third part inspection. While you don’t want to do this for every buyer that rolls around, if you feel you have a serious buyer, you should certainly consider making accommodations for such a request.
