A Lancia Aurelia was recently discovered behind a barn in southern Sweden. Parts of it's history have been uncovered as well. It seems it started out as an Ocar kit.



A fair amount a work has obviously been done on the window frames



Early basecoat photos show that additional sanding was needed




Here it is, as found:





The new owner says that the interior has to be completely rebuilt, but apart from that the car is mechanically sound, and should be back on selected tracks in the near future.

Hello Thomas,
Very nicely done :- )
I have actually seen Aurelia GTs in that sort of condition! Are you tempted to do a "before" and "after" combo ?

What wheels are those (perfect) ?

Kind regards, Leo

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks - very encouraging!

Yes Leo, I have thought about doing a "before" version and have a spare kit that could be used for that.
The wheels are Cartrix CX1030B "BRM" type, with the 3-prong spinners removed, available from Pendle & others.

Great job. Very nice.

And thank you for helping me solve a question that's been bugging me for at least the last two years. I occasionally see these Nissan Micra Bolero cars around town, and I couldn't for the life of me remember what the front end reminded me of.



Now I know


Stuart.
