Thornley Kelham has restored a rusted-through wreck of a Lancia Aurelia B20 GT. The 1953 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT Series 3 was discovered in the USA, with “a staggering amount of rust”, said the company. “Unearthed in a condition that most would class as beyond reasonable repair, it was returned to period correct specification by an expert team.”
The full restoration took two-and-a-half years, using many new panels. Since the restored B20 GT is set to tackle the Mille Miglia race, it has been fitted with Rally De Corsa style seats, Nardi floor shift, Nardi bonnet scoop, Nardi twin carburettors and Borrani ‘bi-metallic’ wheels.
