Named after Via Fulvia, the Roman road leading from Tortona to Torino, the new Lancia was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and manufactured in three variants: Berlina 4-door saloon, 2-door Coupé, and Sport, an alternative fastback coupé designed and built by Zagato on the Coupé floorpan.
Fulvias are notable for their role in motorsport history, including winning the International Rally Championship in 1972. On testing a Fulvia in 1967, Road & Track summed it up as “a precision motorcar, an engineering tour de force”
The updated Coupé introduced 1974, mechanically the same as the earlier Series 2 1.3 S except for the addition of emission control on the Solex carburettors. Easily recognized by its matte black grilled and headlight frame. It featured new design of seats incorporating headrests and new white faced instrument dials with an updated range of trim colours, materials and options.
This beautiful Series II example, finished in wonderful period rally livery and with just 28,000 kilometers recorded, has enjoyed a huge amount of restoration work which has been completed with much attention to detail. As such the rust-free bodywork is presented in as good condition underneath as on the surface. The Fulvia has been prepared to factory rally look, with Gold Cromodora alloy wheels, rally mudflaps, a Momo Prototipo steering wheel, additional driving lights, a Tripmaster timer, map reading light and also pull hooks to the front and rear. The interior has been refinished in grey, and include new carpets and headlining.
With a matching numbers 90hp 1300S motor and five speed gearbox, this is a very nice driving Fulvia that will provide the lucky next owner with many years of driving enjoyment.
