Only 300 GTL 2.8 Coupes were manufactured, and this one was delivered by WH Lowe and Co, Australian Agents for Ferrari and Lancia motor cars. First released in September 1963, this GTL is one of the later cars built.

This Flaminia was arrived here in LHD configuration but was converted to RHD when new by WH Lowe utilising all correct factory componentry including the steering box.

Retained by Ralph Lowe , who was Bill Lowe’s son for some time before being passed on to really the first private Melbourne owner.

It was then sold to a prominent Victorian Lancia collector who retained the car for many years before selling it to another enthusiast in Adelaide in 2002.

In September 2006 the Lancia had still only covered 49,960 miles when the brake callipers were rebuilt, and new pads fitted.

In 2010 the car was again back in Melbourne with a recorded mileage stated as 52,000 miles.

In October 2010 John Allan Automotive carried out a full service, cooling system and fuel system checks, overhaul carburettors, clutch adjustment, tappet adjustments, steering check and full tune and service at 52,724 miles.

Used sparingly over the past 14 years the car currently has a recoded mileage of only 54,046 miles.

The GTL model as a longer wheelbase to suit the 2+2 configuration and these car also had the more powerful 2.8 litre 150BHP , actually 2775c.c, engine in place of the 2.3 litre unit, although 3 GTL cars were equipped with the 2.3 litre unit.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a completely original, matching number example of a Lancia model which was famed for its long legs , fine handling , excellent ride characteristics and good braking.

Beautifully designed and constructed in the traditional Lancia manner and clothed in the stylish coupe body built by Touring of Milan with their Superleggera construction method of light alloy panelling over a tube frame. This was also favoured by Maserati, and Aston Martin particularly after the introduction of the DB4 model in 1958.
