Named after Via Fulvia, the Roman road leading from Tortona to Torino, it 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 1975 Lancia 1300 Fulvia on offer today has most recently been imported from Italy- testament to spending most of its life in a warmer climate the vendor has informed us the chassis is in excellent shape. Starting and driving very well, the engine and transmission perform as they should and are in equally good order. Finished in brown with a complementary brown interior, this is a highly original unmolested example of the Fulvia which is eligible for a variety of historic events and would delight its new owner with its renowned precision handling, charm and character.
