Wheeler Dealers: Lancia Fulvia

I was hoping for a full episode about the Fulvia, but this seems to be a short summary of the Fulvia and some advice on buying one.  I’m not a huge fan of the S2 headlights on this one, i’d much prefer the Series 1—-but i have heard/read that the Series 2 had some mechanical improvements so they may be onto something.  I am staggered by how cheap these sell for on the secondhand market in the UK.  Unfortunately here in the US, since the Fulvia was never officially sold, even raggedy 1.3s have sold for around $10k.  Good ones tend to reach higher into the $12-18k bracket.  I won’t get into the gory details of an amazing one that really slipped away from my own pawing hands several months ago….

focus: Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato.

the original Lancia Fulvia is a total legend……and adding to the legend is this rare, but fascinating rebodied Fulvia redone by Zagato and sold in Limited Edition.  A couple of years ago, i had a chance to by an unrestored one of these, but passed it up just due to the huge amount of cash it would have costed to get it back to shape.  One day though, when i have enough loot to swing around, i want a Fulvia HF and a Fulvia Sport Zagato in my garage…….together!

taken from the Ultimate Car Page:

“In April 1965 the first prototype was ready and it was Elio Zagato himself who conducted the road tests. Before the end of the year the production of the Fulvia Sport 1.3 Zagato was started. As can be seen in the second picture, the rear hatch could be opened slightly electrically to improve ventilation while driving. The first production were powered by a 1.2 litre V4 engines, pumping out a decent 80 bhp. In 1967 the displacement was increased to 1.3 litres. This larger engine was available in two states of tune, 87 bhp for the Sport 1.3 and 93 bhp for the Sport 1.3S. In 1970 the Fulvia Sport was slightly restyled and a 115 bhp 1.6 litre engine was added to the line-up.”
