Footnotes

  • The introduction of the Fulvia saloon in 1963 maintained Lancia's reputation for innovation in automobile design. Designed by Antonio Fessia, the boxy-styled Appia replacement featured an all-new, narrow-angle, V4, overhead-camshaft engine; front wheel drive; independent front suspension by double wishbones; and disc brakes all round. A 2+2 coupé on a shorter wheelbase was launched in 1965. Though mechanically similar, the beautiful newcomer had all the visual presence its progenitor lacked and came with a 1,216cc engine producing 80bhp. In 1967 the model was up-rated with the 1,298cc, 85bhp engine, becoming the Fulvia 'Rallye 1.3', which was further upgraded to 92bhp 'Rallye 1.3 S' specification in 1968. Tuned, lightweight 'HF' versions provided increased performance and formed the basis of the works' highly successful rally programme that saw the Fulvia HF1600 secure Lancia's first Manufacturers' World Championship in 1972. HF versions excepted, Series II cars (1970 - 1976) came with the 90bhp version of the later 1,298cc engine and a five-speed gearbox.

    A late Series I model, this rare UK-supplied, right-hand drive Fulvia Rallye 1.3 S Coupé enjoyed only one (lady) owner up to 1989 and was garage stored before being purchased by Brin Edwards in 1990. Its 'Car Show' information sheet states that the Fulvia 'is original condition and has had no restoration work carried out', though it is not known whether or not any work has been carried out subsequently. Recorded mileage at time of purchase was 41,000 and is now circa 52,000. MoT history shows that the Fulvia has covered only some 2,000 miles over the course of the last 10 years, which included participation in the Lancia Club France's 24th annual rally in Brittany (the last MoT expired in 2013). 'STT 10H' was used many times as a 'backup' car: if there were any problems on the day, it would be driven in the rally instead. Its last outing was a trip to the Spa-Francorchamps racetrack. Finished in white with green vinyl interior, the car is offered with a V5C Registration Certificate.
