Should i restore a Flavia 1965 coupe

Unread post by Pauldeacon »

Hi I have an opportunity to complete a restoration of a 1965 Flavia coupe PF 1965. Car has been stripped to bear metal and will be a full nut and bolt restoration. New leather interior new refurbished dash all chrome redone. Suspension and engine (1800 carburetor) rebuild. Car will be concourse once completed. 2 questions. Car originally off white. Would it be better to leave original color or change to the blue. What would a fully restored version of this car be worth once completed? Please and thank you. Paul

Hi Paul,

Coupé Pinin Farina or Cabriolet Vignale?

If you send me the chassis-no. and engine-no. I can check if they correspond.

1.8 carb is the best choice. The injection version by Kugelfischer is difficult.

Restoration just for sale, take the white.
If you want to use the car for some years, take a blue which was also original,
p.e. blu notte.

The costs of a restoration is always higher than the price on the actual market.
Maybe in 20 years the price will increase because these cars become rarer and rarer.

Are you from ZA?

We could correspond better by e-mail.


Best regards
Frank
