Proven by international rally success, the very Italian and front-wheel drive Lancia Fulvia certainly deserves its status as being one of the world's great driver cars. This one, a Fulvia Series 1 late entry, is fairly rare, too, being a 1.2-litre 80bhp coupe in right-hand drive. When entered, the odometer read 158,000k (98,000 miles), which is claimed by the entrant to be the genuine total for the car from new.
We understand that the fixed head was first owned by an Italian executive manager and then by a Lancia factory technician, who, after twenty years service with the North Italian marque, ran a small specialist Lancia workshop near Milan. More recently it has been owned by his son, Albert Casto, a telemetric engineer at Ferrari F1.
The first owner logged everything in a small book, including refuelling and oil change details, as well as spark plug and tyre replacements. History has been charted from 16 March 1966 at 25k to 1985 at 155,096k. Thereafter, the second owner and his son only added 3000k. Until four weeks ago, when it left its home country for the journey north, it was Italian registered and licensed. Included are the first owner's booklet, an original manual and tool kit as well as a `Certificato di Proprieta' (being from within the EEC, re-registration in the UK should be straightforward).
Current condition of the two-door body shell is said to be good as are both the green paintwork and the interior in beige cloth. The 1216cc V4 is reportedly in very good order as is the four-speed manual transmission and all the electrical equipment functions correctly apparently.
