Lot 258: 1975 Lancia Fulvia 1.3S 'One owner from new'
It was in 1965 that Lancia launched the Fulvia coupe. Designed in-house, it was powered by a twin cam V4 engine of 1,216cc producing 80bhp, while the 1.2 HF - for High Fidelity - followed with less trim and 88bhp. In 1966 capacity rose to 1,294cc, realising in the 1.3 HF the start of a long and illustrious rally career. For 1968 engine capacity increased again to 1,584cc: the 1968 1.6 HF, boasting 114bhp (and 118mph/0-60mph in 9.9 seconds), a five speed gearbox, wider tyres on 13" alloy wheels, fibreglass wheel arches and 7" inner headlamps, represented the ultimate development of the Fulvia - a fact proved by victory in the 1969 Mediterranean, Elba and RAC Rallies and the 84 Hour Marathon de la Route. 1969 also saw the appearance of the Fulvia Series 2. Detail changes were numerous while the 1.6 HF had revised front suspension, new flared wheel arches and 14" alloy wheels. 1974 saw the final Series 3 cars with largely cosmetic alterations before production finally ceased in 1976 - by when the Fulvia coupe had netted both the 1972 and '74 World Rally Championships. This car represents a unique opportunity to purchase what is reportedly the most original example of a lancia Fulvia Series 3 available. Finished in the original factory colour scheme of Agnuna blue with tangerine interior and green carpets. Meticulous records include original sales invoice, Lancia warranty, handbooks and invoices from day one. Having hillclimb and concours history this car now deserves a second caring owner and with one owner from new, must represent great value.
