  • Surely one of the best examples extant!

The Lancia Fulvia Saloon made its debut at the 1963 Geneva Salon. The newcomer featured a narrow-angle DOHC V4 engine mounted ahead of and driving the front wheels. Front suspension was independent by wishbones and a single leaf spring, while a solid axle with Panhard rod and leaf springs was employed at the rear. Braking was by discs all-round. The two-door Coupe derivative was introduced at the 1965 Turin Salon, the wheelbase of which was 5.9in shorter than the Saloons. Countless race and rally victories were accrued by these feisty little cars, not least victory in the 1972 FIA Manufacturers Championship. All versions of the Fulvia were facelifted in 1969. These Series II cars had superior disc brakes, five-speed gearboxes, a diaphragm clutch, stiffer springing and an alternator.

Manufactured in 1976, the Fulvia offered is a desirable UK-supplied, right-hand drive example having been supplied new by Cooden Motors in St. Marys Bay, Kent, being first registered on the 1st of October that year. One of the last 2,000 Fulvias manufactured (with the Beta Coupes well into production at the time of its manufacture), it was finished from the factory in the attractive and rare colour scheme of Verde Dublino (or Dublin Green) paintwork with striking Golden cloth interior upholstery, all of which it pleasingly presents with today. Understood to have sold to its second keeper, also in Kent, in 1984 (having recorded just 7,667 miles by the 1983 MOT), the Lancia had covered 9,460 miles by 1988, remaining with the second owner until the early 1990s when it was acquired into a private collection.

Remaining in the private collection until 2017 and covering less than 1,000 miles during this period, the fourth owner acquired chassis 077361 in 2017. Benefitting from mechanical and cosmetic improvement once purchased, the work completed included attention to the steering, fuel system fettling with a new fuel pump, powder-coated alloy wheels, and new carpets. The enhancements didn’t halt here however, with gearbox oil, a new cylinder head gasket, and steering box bushes during 2018; new clutch and release bearing, new steering box bushes, and carburettors overhauled in 2019; electronic ignition, new battery and engine servicing in 2020; brake overhaul and new coil during 2021, and a new water pump and fan belt in 2022.

Offered with a history file that contains the original warranty certificate, original sales literature, previous MOT certificates dating back to 1983, a large selection of invoices, technical literature, and a current V5C document, the Lancia also has two sets of keys. Pleasingly understood to be retaining its original paintwork and most of its original interior, the vendor describes the Lancia as “a joy to drive”. Serviced in April, this Fulvia is surely a best of breed example and is not one to be missed!
