|1967 Lancia Fluvia Zagato 1.3S|
Eng. No. 818.410-2239540
Red with Black Interior
Always industry leaders in design innovation, Lancia’s Fulvia 1.3 “Sport”, with front wheel drive, and a narrow angle 1.3 liter V4 engine was no exception. Easy to control with their front wheel drive, and capable of 110 mph, Lancia campaigned Fulvias Sports in international rally and circuit events throughout Europe with great success. In total 6 different bodies were mounted to Fulvia chassis. The Zagato bodied are generally regarded as the most aesthetically pleasing of all variations.
This particular car has been the subject of a sympathetic restoration in the early 1990s by Lancia expert Franco De Piero in Italy. Best described today as a very nice driver, it has been tastefully fitted with fender and rocker panel flairs, more modern seats with additional side supports and headrests, charcoal carpets, and a more rigid, smaller diameter steering wheel. This gives the car a decidedly sporty feel and appears when compared to a stock Fulvia 1.3. Attesting to the mechanical condition, after the restoration was complete Mr. De Piero drove the car from Italy across mainland Europe to Amsterdam where it was exported to the US.
Cosmetically, the car presents very well. The car has seen a nice repaint in a deep shade of red over straight and solid panels. The interior was re-trimmed at the time of the restoration and also makes a strong impression. The dash top is free of cracks, and the original gauges, switchgear, and gear shift knob remain. The headliner is dyed black and in very good order.
The car runs and drives well with good power, minimal smoke, and a nice transaxle. All the gauges appear to work, and the rear hatch opening and closing mechanism is operational. The suspension and steering are compliant, and the brakes effective.
With prices now exceeding $650,000 for the 1600cc Alfa Romeo TZs, this is an opportune chance to acquire very presentable, exotic, Zagato bodied, small bore Italian GT before prices on these too soar out of sight in today’s fast moving market.
