Better known for his motor racing activities, whisky heir Rob Walker also owned a chain of garages. Sold new by Rob Walkers (Bournemouth) Ltd to J.C. Pfister Esq of Wimborne on 7th April 1973 at a cost of £2,134.53, chassis 003291 was road registered as 'ERU 491L' twelve days later. Originally finished in Rosso Palermo with Beige upholstery, the Lancia belonged to Miss Janine Styles of Poole for some twelve years before entering the current ownership on 17th September 1989. An accompanying 'Warranty and Service Vouchers' booklet shows that the Fulvia Zagato 1.3S underwent maintenance work at 1,204, 4,346, 8,786, 16,074 and 21,282 miles, while an expired MOT certificate issued on August 20th 1984 lists an odometer reading of 65,244 miles.
Dry stored for much of the past twenty-six years, the Lancia's odometer currently shows some 65,380 miles. Fed by twin Solex carburettors, its engine has recently been coaxed back into life but the whole car will require thorough recommissioning. Although, not currently fitted the rear bumpers come with it as do some replacement rear light units. Deeming the bodywork, paintwork and interior trim to be in 'good' order, the vendor adds that the 1298cc engine and five-speed manual gearbox 'seem sound'. A potentially rewarding project, this rare Fulvia Zagato 1.3S is offered for sale with copy sales invoice, manufacturer's warranty card, numerous service / repair invoices and V5C registration document.
