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 for the 1952 B20. It was a vintage Autovox, model RA15L, a rather heavyweight from the time. Its restoration was interesting: first, three vintage radio restorers in the US wouldn't touch it. Finally found a vintage radio buff in Trieste willing to take it on! Not so easy these old parts!
He had to hunt hard, but found a power diagram somewhere, and a power source on Ebay, then proceeded to rebuild in detail. He wrote up his work: https://www.depoi.net/en/2017/restoration-autovox-car-radio-lancia-aurelia-b20
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?"
