Like the Flavia, the all-new entry-level Lancia Fulvia was designed by Antonio Fessia, to replace the Lancia Appia. Also like the Flavia, it was front-wheel driven and powered by an all-new longitudinally-mounted narrow-angle V4 engine (so narrow, it had a single cylinder head) designed by Zaccone Mina. Revised styling with longer wheelbase – and squarer nose – arrived in 1970.
So, consequently, under its oh-so conservative skin, the Fulvia saloon was a true engineering tour de force – leagues ahead of pretty much all the opposition. Early cars featured four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes all round, but these were replaced by Girling items in the S2 models. An all-synchomesh gearbox was fitted on all models. With its fully independent suspension (by wishbones and a single leaf spring at the front and a beam axle with a panhard rod and leaf springs at the rear) and all-round disc brakes, it might not have been conventional, but it drove brilliantly.
Rolling off the production line in June 1968, the Dutch-registered example is presented here in good condition in all respects, having been dry stored for some time. Finished in the classic combination of Lancia Blue with a Wine Red interior, this Fulvia a great candidate for sympathetic recommissioning.
The Fulvia is offered with No Reserve, and will sell to the highest bidder on the day.
Vom Fließband im Juni 1968 gerollt, ist das holländisch registrierte Auto in gutem Gesamtzustand, und wurde zeitweise trocken gelagert. Gefertigt in der klassischen Kombination des Lancia Blau mit einem Weinroten Interieur, ist dieser Fulvia ein geeigneter Kandidat für eine schwungvolle Wiederinbetriebnahme.
Der Fulvia wird als “No Reserve” angeboten, und wird an den höchsten Bieter verkauft.
