The Lancia Fulvia was an Italian car introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and produced until 1976. Fulvias are notable for their role in motorsport history, including winning the International Rally Championship in 1972. On testing the Fulvia in 1967, Road & Track summed up the car as "a precision motorcar, an engineering tour de force". It was named after Via Fulvia, a Roman road leading from Tortona to Torino.
The Fulvia was available in three variants: a four-door saloon called the Berlina, a two-door Coupé, and the Sport, which was an alternative fastback coupé designed and built by Zagato on the Coupé floorpan.
The Fulvia Coupé was introduced in 1965. Like the saloon it was designed in-house by Piero Castagnero, although it used a 150mm shorter wheelbase. It was the last Fulvia model to be discontinued, being replaced only in 1977 by a 1.3-litre version of the Beta Coupé.

The slender proportions and sharp styling of the Fulvia Coupé are quintessentially Italian. This charming Series 2 example is finished in dark blue, the glossy paintwork presenting with absolutely no scuffs or scratches to speak of. On close inspection all the brightwork appears original, and is for the most part in pristine condition. Furthermore all lenses are clear and crack-free, and the rubber trim is in good order throughout.
The rich red upholstery is a classic contrast to the exterior coachwork. The seats, both front and rear, present very well with almost no signs of wear. The dash also maintains an excellent appearance with no damage to the elegant wood trim. Pleasingly the stylish Fulvia script is retained having never been replaced with a retrofit radio. The rubber matting in the footwells and rear luggage compartment also remains in good shape throughout.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Fulvia is equipped with a DOHC V4 engine with one camshaft operating the intake valves, and another operating the exhaust valves. The very narrow ‘V' angle of the cylinders allows the use of a single cylinder head.
The mechanics of the car are in fine working order and a fresh service has just been carried out. The engine compartment appears tidy with no excessive wear to any of the components. The MOT is valid until November 2018.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Fulvia sits on 14-inch alloys still complete with the original Lancia centre badges. With only light patina the wheels are present without significant curb marking. They are shod in a matching set of period Uniroyal tyres with ample tread remaining.
The Lancia was first registered in Ferrara, Italy, on the 31st March 1972. It has recently arrived in the UK following a sympathetic refresh and now presents beautifully throughout. The car has just been freshly serviced and is complete with an MOT valid until November 2018. The original Italian registration booklet is also present in the history file.
