What a timeless beauty the Pininfarina styled Aurelia B50 Convertible still is. This example was first admitted to traffic in 1951. The car still looks beautiful. The good looks are largely due to a thorough restoration in which the entire technique was immediately overhauled. Since then, the car has been very well maintained and is still in excellent condition.

The car first came to the Netherlands over 20 years ago. The base was very solid but had lost some of its original shine after 50 years. It was decided to completely disassemble the car and restore it completely. After the body was stripped, repairs were carried out where necessary and the car was completely repainted in its original colour. The paint was very well sprayed at the time and is still in a neat, well-maintained condition with only some light traces of use. The convertible top has also been completely reupholstered, and the top frame has also been repainted. The hood is still in very good condition and fits perfectly everywhere. The chrome on the bumpers and the body was also addressed at the time and still looks beautiful.

The interior has been completely reupholstered with beautiful red leather and beautiful matching red carpets. The previous owner had to search a long time for the correct red leather because he was looking for a red color and quality that would come closest to the original. Also striking is the beautiful Bakkeliet steering wheel that has developed a beautiful patina over the years. The instruments and controls are otherwise all original and function as they should. For those nice days when the hood can stay down, there is a tonneau cover that was manufactured at the same time as the convertible hood.

The Lancia Aurelia B50 is powered by a 1.8 liter V6 engine that is equipped with two Solex carburettors and produces 56 hp. The engine is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The entire technique was overhauled during the restoration and is therefore in top condition. The engine runs fantastic and is wonderfully smooth. In addition, the engine also feels more powerful than its 56 hp would suggest. Finally, it is worth mentioning that the entire wiring harness was also renewed during the overhaul.

The Lancia is beautifully documented. The car is equipped with a Fiva pass, an extensive photo series of the restoration and overhaul, general photos, manuals and general information about the car. In short, a beautiful and also very rare Lancia Aurelia B50 Convertible in a fantastic color scheme and wonderful condition.
