Early images of B20 body manufacturing are hard to find - the exact processes used at the time are rarely seen in photographs. Found in the Pirelli archives were these images of B20 production at Pinin Farina, published in their magazine, c. 1952. And the caption clearly recognizes the combination of artisanal craftsmanship and larger scale production, a fascinating aspect of these Lancias:
"The bodywork of the Lancia Aurelia b20 is built in the Pininfarina plant with a series of work that brings together the results of various artisanal productions."
