If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
While the Superleggera Touring coupe, or Sport Zagato are often associated with the Flaminia, it’s actual roots are derived from the Pininfarina variety – a succession of the Florida II (also designed by Pf), and an unmistakably beautiful car. With two doors removed, and a slightly shorter wheelbase, the coupe still offered a surprising amount of room for two rear-seat occupants… something hardly considered by Touring and completely void in the Zagato versions.
The Pf Flaminia retained the 2.5L V-6 of Aurelia fame. The rear mounted trans-axle and de Dion suspension (now with a panhard rod) were also continued, though the car was updated to a double wishbone front and disc brakes all around. Slightly heavier than the offerings from other coach houses, it was a true GT car and appreciably more practical! Reliability was a well known and appreciated standard of the Lancia company… Read on below for a superb example of this renowned quality.Offered Here
This car is an incredible representation of the car that Lancia made so popular. A neatly done older restoration, walking around the car affords a close-up view of the build quality that made Lancia a world-class marque. Opening any of the moving panels rewards you, showing off a remarkably clean interior, engine bay and trunk – restored in the 1980’s to an original-like quality. Even exiting this car is pleasurable, as you notice the ease and authority of closing the doors. A repaint in 1985 is not without some wear, but it has held up well and compliments the patina in a presentable fashion. This car was a long-time resident of the dry, American southwest (Southern CA and NV). As such, this is a very solid and dry car; a piece for the true Lancia enthusiast.
Not only pretty, this is a running and driving example with some recent service by Classic Investments (new battery; oil changed; upper radiator hose replaced; carb removed, cleaned and tuned; NOS fuel pump installed and worn lines replaced; fuel tank cleaned and lined and spark plugs cleaned and adjusted). The engine was overhauled in 1984 while the car underwent paint service. Obviously well cared for, this car has just emerged from a 21 year residency in a large Lancia collection by a private individual and now awaits her next curator.
