Footnotes

  • In tuned, lightweight 'HF' guise, the Fulvia provided Lancia with a means to contest the World Rally Championship. Lancia had used a variety of models during the 1950s, achieving a modicum of success, but with the Fulvia's arrival Cesare Fiorio's Squadra Corse works team had a car capable of consistently challenging for outright victory.

    The works team campaigned the Fulvia in 1.2- and 1.3-litre forms, securing a handful of wins at World Championship level, before the advent of the 1.6-litre, five-speed HF1600 for 1969 gave them the means to mount a more serious challenge. Ultimate expression of the Fulvia Coupé, the HF1600 came with a 1,584cc engine producing 115bhp in road trim with up to 165bhp available in rally tune. The works team used the HF1600 consistently between 1969 and 1974, securing seven European Championship wins in 1970, six in 1971 and seven the following year to take the World Rally Championship for Makes in 1972. Alpine-Renault's A110 took the title for the French manufacturer in 1973 but the HF1600 was not done yet, helping Lancia to a second Makes championship in 1974 together with the Stratos and Beta Coupé, while Harry Källström (1969) and Sandro Munari (1972) became European Rally Champions driving the HF1600. (Before the advent of the World Drivers' Championship in 1978, the European was the FIA's only official rally championship for drivers).

    A landmark model of immense significance, the Fulvia HF1600 effectively established Lancia's considerable reputation on the World Rallying stage and paved the way for the legendary Stratos, Rally 037, and Delta Integrale models. When production ceased in 1973, a total of 3,690 stradale (road going) HF1600s had been produced, with a further 1,258 being built to 'Rallye' specification.
    This Fulvia HF1600 was purchased by Brin Edwards in 1986, its colour having been changed from white to the current red in 1985. Accompanying documentation consists of a V5C Registration Certificate, SORN (2015), and a quantity of MoTs dating back to 1995 (most recent expired 2014). Run recently, the car should require only basic re-commissioning before returning to the road.
