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, while the Rallye 1.3S had 92bhp on tap. 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.

    Dating from the penultimate year of production, the 3rd Series Fulvia coupé offered here represents the model's final development. This right-hand drive car was supplied in the UK and has had ten owners from new (full details in the comprehensive history file), the last three being Lancia Motor Club members and Club Lanciasport committee members, including the chairman. Its paint scheme pays homage to Sandro Munari's 1972 Monte Carlo Rally-winning Fulvia. 'NBO 836P' is famous in its own right, being the basis for the Fulvia that features in the DiRT3 rallying video game, as well as being driven by Jeremy Clarkson in BBC Top Gear's Lancia Special in which he enthused that it was 'a fantastic little car'. It has also featured at many shows.

    Currently taxed, the car is described as in generally very good/excellent condition with 'A1' engine, the latter having been fully rebuilt by John Day of Day & Winter at Brands Hatch during the summer of 2012, since when some 2,000 miles have been covered. Noteworthy modifications include twin Dell'Orto DHLB35 carburettors; bolt-in half roll cage; baffled and foam filled alloy fuel tank; sealed aluminium bulkhead; Sabelt safety harnesses; HF wheelarch extensions; Carello spotlights; and Series 2 instruments (originals with car). The instruments were changed, probably, around 2006, the final recorded mileage being 71,547. The new odometer is believed to have recorded approximately 45,000 miles when fitted, making the total mileage from new circa 89,700. Accompanying documentation consists of a V5C registration document, MoT to January 2015 and the aforementioned history file containing numerous bills, a quantity of expired MoT certificates, and other paperwork. Spares with car include a steel bonnet, windscreen, rear seats, cylinder head, rocker gear, lights, original air box, etc.
