1972 Lancia Fulvia 1.6 HF Fanalino Lusso

Description

The introduction of the Fulvia saloon in 1963 maintained Lancia’s reputation for innovation in automobile design. 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. A 2+2 coupé 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. Tuned, lightweight ‘HF’ versions provided increased performance and formed the basis of the works’ highly successful rally programme that saw the Fulvia HF1600 secure Lancia’s first Manufacturers’ World Championship in 1972. Ultimate expression of the Fulvia Coupé, the HF1600 had been introduced in 1969 and came with a 1,584cc engine producing 115bhp in road tune – an output sufficient for a top speed of 115mph – revised suspension and a five-speed gearbox. Production ceased in 1973 after a little fewer than 5,000 HF1600s had been built.

This delightful and rare HF1600 is described by the vendor as in good condition and has obviously been well looked after by its previous owners. Finished in a rare colour combination with and its original engine and interior it has covered just 77,00km from new. Mechanically excellent this example is offered with a most sensible reserve.
