Heres a little Italian change of pace... MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present another unique Italian Job, a 1973 Lancia Fulvia Rallye Coup 1.3 S. This is a true classic European collector's find The former owner drove the car since 2000. Finished in stunning silver metallic, the paint job shows extremely well with only minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. Virtually unknown in the U.S., the Italian brand Lancia has been building cars for over 100 years. Often on the engineering vanguard, the brand is credited with a number of automotive firsts.
This example is a Coup 1.3 S(Tipo 818.630/631) Series II, which brought a facelifted body and new fivespeed manual gearbox with a 1298cc (818.303) V4 engine with dualcarburetors producing 90horsepower at 6000rpm. Larger Girling calipers and pads with fourwheel disc brakes replaced the Dunlop system fitted to Series I cars.
With its low beltline and generous greenhouse, the Lancia Fulvia will delight even the most discerning Italian car collector or enthusiast. The windshield and other vehicle glass sections are clear, intact and in overall good shape. All exterior lights are present, intact and clear. The front bumper shows some minor blemishes but overall, the bumpers are in good shape, as are the rest of the metal trim pieces. The car's body panels are straight. The engine bay and battery are clean. The trunk has more cargo volume than one might expect, thanks to the car's frontdrive layout. Car rolls on Michelin X1 175/65R14 tires with factory steel eightslot wheels.
Inside, the correct dark blue velour seats all look excellent, with no major signs of wear visible. The seats were reupholstered by the same manufacturer Lancia used in the 1970s and these seats came in cloth only on the Rallye versions. The carpet is intact, the headliner is in very good shape, as is the instrument panel with its woodgrain insert. The interior and exterior mirrors are each in one piece and the door panels, woodrimmed steering wheel and shifter are all in good shape. This car is a radio delete model.
TheLancia Fulvia(Tipo 818) was anItaliancarintroduced at theGeneva Motor Showin 1963and produced until 1976. Fulvias are notable for their role in motorsport history, including winning theInternational Rally Championshipin 1972.After testing it in 1967,Road & Tracksummed up the Fulvia as "a precision motorcar, an engineering tour de force." It is named after Via Fulvia,the Roman roadleading from Tortona to Torino.
When leaving the factory, all but a few of the Coups originally fittedPirelli Cinturato165HR14 tires. The Coups were the last Fulvia model to be discontinued, ceasing production in 1977.
The Fulvia Berlina replaced theLancia Appia,with which it shared almost no components. The Appia usedrearwheel drive, while the Fulvia moved tofrontwheel drivelike the Flavia. The general engineering design of the Fulvia was identical to that of the Flavia with the major exception of the engine; the Flavia had a fourcylinder horizontally opposed engine while the Fulvia had a 'narrow angle' vee configuration as featured on most production Lancias since theLambda. The Fulvia used a longitudinal engine mounted in front of itstransaxle. Anindependent suspensionin front usedwishbonesand a singleleaf spring, while abeam axlewith apanhard rodand leaf springs was used in back.
Competition to this Lancia in 1973 included Alfa Romeo's GT 1300 Junior, BMW's 1600 Touring, Ford's Capri 1600 GT, MG's MBG GT and Opel's Manta.
