Unrestored Original
RM Sotheby's
Auction House
Chassis No. 8261341007, Engine No. 8261001040. White over red leather. 2.8-liter V-6. 4-speed manual. Triple Weber carburetors, hubcaps and trim rings, Blaupunkt push-button radio, and wood-rim steering wheel.

Evaluation: Unrestored original | Delivered new in Portugal, driven for 10 years, then put away and not driven since. Cracked, faded original paint. Dented front bumper. Missing left marker light. The driver’s side window is also missing, which is likely related to the broken glass on the floor. Dirty, ripped top. Decent but aged seats. The rest of the interior is dirty and musty-smelling. Rusty exhaust and lots of oxidation underneath. Masking tape holds the trunk closed. A barn find in pretty much every sense of the term. Needs everything.

Bottom Line:  The V6, rear-drive Flaminia was available in various body styles—all of them attractive—from the likes of Pininfarina, Zagato, and Touring. The breathtaking and rare Sport Zagato coupe is worth the most, but Touring convertibles are next on the Flaminia ladder. This car, tattered but worth saving, could command somewhere around $200,000, if restored. How much in shop bills will it take to get there? Unclear, but it’s safe to say buying one that’s already been redone would be a safer bet, financially speaking.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
