THE LANCIA FULVIA COUPE
The introduction of the Fulvia saloon in 1963 maintained Lancia's reputation for innovation in automobile design. Designed by Antonio Fessia, the boxy-styled Appia replacement featured an all-new, narrow-angle, V4, overhead-camshaft engine; front wheel drive; independent front suspension by double wishbones; and disc brakes all round. The Fulvia was described as 'a precision motor car, an engineering tour de force', and was lauded by motoring journalists as a jewel of engineering and forward thinking design, as well as being delightful to drive.
A 2+2 coupe on a shorter wheelbase was launched in 1965. Though mechanically similar, the beautiful newcomer had all the visual presence its progenitor lacked and came with a 1,216cc engine producing 80bhp. In 1967 the model was up-rated with the 1,298cc, 85bhp engine, becoming the Fulvia Rallye 1.3.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This particular Lancia Fulvia spent most of its life in Italy. Unfortunately, the majority of its early history is unfortunately not known, but the vehicle was acquired by the consigner in Italy last year and imported to the US. This particular example is also fitted with the 303 series high compression engine, which has a 91hp rating.
After importation, the car has been put through an extensive service by a noted Italian car specialist. This work has included a full brake service, fuel system service, and new rubber door seals.
Today, this Lancia Fulvia presents very nicely. Currently painted in silver with black interior, it is quite fetching. Weighing less then 2000lbs, Lancia Fulvia are immensely fun to drive, with great corning ability and lively V4 engine. This is a great car for weekend drives, or fun times on mountain roads.
