Production of the Lancia Flavia commenced in 1961 and, as well as the saloon, the range eventually included coupé and convertible versions designed by Pininfarina and Vignale respectively. Performance improved over the ten year period as the engine size increased, progressively, to 2000cc and the model remained in production until 1970, when it was updated and renamed the Lancia 2000. The Flavia was developed by Professor Antonio Fessia in the late 1950s, and when production commenced, only the four-door saloon was available for sale. These early models were powered by a 1.5-litre aluminium boxer engine driving through the front wheels and Dunlop disc brakes were fitted all round. Towards the end of the 1960s, when Fiat took control of the company, the coupé and saloon versions were redesigned, and these new models were unveiled in March 1969 at the Geneva Motor Show. The engine was increased to 2.0-litres in capacity and could be specified with carburettors or fuel injection, and a four or five-speed gearbox. This engine/ transmission combination was only available with the revised Pininfarina Coupé and Lancia saloon.

This very good example of this pretty Italian marque is presented in silver with red leather interior and was first registered in Switzerland in July 1969, spending most of its recent life between France and England. A considerable amount of work has been carried out in the past by marque specialist Omicron and more recently on behalf of its current owner, by NBA Sportscars. This particular car has the desirable options of power steering and wonderful red leather upholstery. Its lively two litre, four- cylinder engine is mated to a four speed gearbox and is in good all round condition. The car comes with a good history file and has a current MoT test certificate which expires in August 2021.
