In 2015, there was a rather special Aurelia display at the Padova fair in September. This event brings together a lot of old car folks interested in Italian cars. Its a wonderful event. Under the banner of commerce, various display stands can be found, from manufacturers, suppliers, to car clubs. And this being Italy, there is also very fine chocolate and grappa available as you walk around.
The Registro Aurelia put on a heck of show in 2015. Its not clear what inspired them, but it was quite the delight, as one can tell from these photos from James Steerman. They put up a large display register with the B24 Spiders, showing original color by serial number, and dots for which were still extant. Of course, there is always the odd one missed....
A recent discussion of radios in a B12 on the Lancia Club site brought to mid the restoration of the radio that was fitted to my 1952 B20. The radio was vintage Autovox, model RA15L, a substantial heavyweight from the time. Getting it restored was interesting: first, the main three vintage radio restorers in the US wouldn't touch it. but there was a vintage radio buff in Trieste (Italy) willing to take it on. Not so easy these old parts!
He had to hunt hard, but he was able to find a power diagram, and then even located a power source on Ebay, and proceeded to rebuild the radio in detail. writing up his work: https://www.depoi.net/en/2017/restoration-autovox-car-radio-lancia-aurelia-b20
And thanks to Ed Levin for finding more info, a site with the wiring diagram:
John Cundy wonders if someone at Lancia had a sense of humor:
"Had it occurred to you that all B10 based Aurelias have 10 hole wheels and B12 have 12......and on the s.3 the exhaust manifold to exhaust pipe flange has three bolts and s.4 has four?"
