Description

Believed to be one of just eight right-hand-drive 1.3 HFs ever manufacturedExtensively rebuilt c2000 by marque specialist Richard Thorne Classic Cars (24,000)Further engine and bodywork by Winchfield Engineering and Day & Whites Automotive of KentFormerly FIA-papered, Category GGTThehistory file includes thecurrent V5c and a new clean MOT valid untilOctober 2021In the right hands, this rare Fulvia 1.3 HF has massive potential for rally successOne of only 8 RHD Series I Fulvias, this is a rare beasty being, as it is, a correct 1.3HF from 1968. Owned by our vendor since 2003, he acquired the car shortly after a full and exhaustive rebuild by Richard Thorne Classic Cars to HSCC race spec with a 120bhp+ engine and intended for historic rallying or Tour Auto.At the timethe car was being offered for sale, RTCC claimed it to be an 850kg 'homologation' variant and had been subjected to a nearly 24,000rebuild on behalf of their original customer. These works, estimated to have been completed around the year 2000, were to strip and bore the engine to suit forged hi-compression pistons, the crankshaft reground, new oilway bungs fitted, new bearings, piston rings, gaskets, seals and timing chain on reassembly. Cylinder head built-up with competition valve springs and race cams fitted and timed. Carburettors stripped, checked and reassembled. The chassis, axles, subframe and brakes were all equally breathed-on. A full and detailed list of the rebuild is available.After acquiring the car, our vendor revisited RTCC in 2004 for additional re-wiring work, mostly fitting equipment for rallying, but spending a further 2,000 in the process. Later, in August 2005, andfollowing minor rear damage courtesy of an unseen road-side rock during a manoeuvre on a rally in Italy, respected Lancia craftsmen, Winchfield Engineering undertook some metalwork repairs to the back panel, rear valance, filler panel and boot lid, plus, it seems from the pictures that they attended to some sill work for good measure too, totalling nearly 4,000.In July 2010, Day andWhites Automotive of Kent were appointed to complete a full strip-down and engine rebuild, to remove and dismantle all brake calipers, and refit with new brake pipes at a cost of 4,300. A new fuel pump was fittedshortly afterwards and then, in June 2014, it went back to Day & Whites for a replacement head gasket for which there was no charge.This very capable and incredibly rare rally car further benefits from retaining its correct aluminium doors, bonnet and boot lid; it has a fitted roll cage with removable sidebars, Sparco OMP seats, TRS belts, long-distance aluminium fuel tank, Monza-style filler cap, painted steel-wheels (in average cosmetic order) and is shod with Vredestein tyres.Accompanying the car are expired FIA Papers confirming this cars status as G Category GT if intended for competition. Further, we have a Heritage Certificate from the Lancia Motor Club in 2001 confirming the year of manufacture and chassis number and finally, thecar is now in possession of avalid MOT test certificate.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location Monday to Friday between Thursday 29th October - 12th November.
