1969 Lancia Fulvia Coupé Rallye 1.6 HFS
Registration no. UFS 31H (UK)
Chassis no. 818.540.001578
Engine no. 2264676
Au cours des années 1969-1970, 1,258 modèles 1.6 HF furent construits dont les 600 premiers environ furent désignés « HFS » et équipés du moteur « variante 1016 » caractérisé par des arbres à cames identiques à ceux des voitures de rallye d’usine. Cette voiture – « 0011578 », une rare fanalone (gros phares) - une des dernières HFS construites, est contemporaine des voitures utilisées par l’usine à la fin de l’année 1969 et au début de 1970. Probablement employée comme voiture de reconnaissance par l’écure officielle, elle possède quelques pièces des voitures d’usine comme les tubulures d’admission, des carburateurs Dell’Orto de 45 mm, un compte-tours jusqu’à 10 000 tours et un volant Abarth, bien que le moteur 1016 ait été remplacé.

La Fulvia est restée en Italie jusqu’au milieu des années 1970 avant de rejoindre la Belgique puis le Royaume-Uni où elle participa à des épreuves historiques jusqu’au début des années 1990. En 2002-2003, elle bénéficia d’une longue et patiente restauration depuis le métal nu (voir photos au dossier).

La voiture a été remise aux spécifications du Groupe 4 avec panneaux en aluminium, roues en alliage de magnésium, moteur préparé compétition, boîte de vitesses à cinq rapports compétition, réservoir de grande capacité rempli de mousse, arceau cage six points FIA, sièges et harnais FIA, extincteurs plombés, coupe-circuit général et vitrages en Plexiglas. Elle est éligible à la Targa Florio, au Milan-San Remo, au Tour Auto, au Monte Carlo Historique et a beaucoup d’autres épreuves internationales de prestige ainsi qu’à des séries comme la Top Hat et l’HSCC. La Fulvia a remporté plusieurs prix pour sa présentation dont une première place au concours du RAC à Woodcote Park en 2004 et elle a fait l’objet d’articles dans plusieurs magazines dont Auto Italia en 2004. Elle est offerte avec ses papiers du RAC/MSA, son immatriculation britannique V5C et un certificat (expiré) du MoT de 2006.

1969 Lancia Fulvia Coupé Rallye 1.6 HFS
Chassis no. 818.540.001578
Engine no. 2264676

In total, 1,258 1.6 HFs were built during 1969-70, of which approximately the first 600 were designated ‘HFS’ and fitted with the ‘variante 1016’ engine featuring modified cams similar to the works rally cars. This car - ‘001578’, a rare fanalone (big headlight) version - is one of the last HFS to be built and contemporary with cars used by the works in late 1969/early 1970. Believed to have been used as a reconnaissance car by the works team, it still has various works parts including inlet manifolds, 45mm Dell’Orto carburettors, 10,000rpm tachometer and Abarth steering wheel, although the ‘1016’ engine has been replaced.

The Fulvia stayed in Italy until the mid-1970s before moving to Belgium and eventually the UK, where it competed in historic rallies until the early 1990s. In 2000-2003 it underwent a lengthy bare-metal restoration (photographs on file).

The car has been returned to Group 4 specification with aluminium panels, magnesium alloy wheels, race/rally-prepared engine, five-speed competition gearbox, foam-filled long-range fuel tank, FTA six-point roll cage, FIA seats and harnesses, fully-plumbed fire extinguisher, master cut-off switch and Plexiglas windows. It is eligible for the Targa Florio, Milano-San Remo, Tour Auto, Monte Carlo Historique and many other prestigious international events as well as series such as Top Hat and HSCC. The Fulvia has won several prizes for presentation, including 1st place in the RAC Club concours at Woodcote Park in 2004, and has featured in several motoring magazines, most recently Auto Italia in 2004. It is offered with RAC/MSA papers, UK V5C registration document and an expired MoT certificate (2006).
