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.”
