Description

Italian registration - Two owners, in sound condition - Original line, with a nice finish This Fulvia sedan is secondhand: it was purchased by our collector from its first owner, who lived near the garage. As the owner aged, he wanted more comfort and so installed - in the 1990s - seats from the Lancia Thema. But the original seat covers are sold with the car, which is in good original condition, with a healthy and very well preserved body. With its very angular design and four headlamps grille, this car stands out from the production models of the period. This is a second series car and is equipped with the classic narrow-angle V engine of the Fulvia V, with a very special distribution system with two overhead camshafts, and two carburetors, making it quite a bit more powerful. Introduced in 1963, the Fulvia sedan succeeded the Lancia Appia and under the influence of engineer Fessia, the car had front-wheel-drive, which had already been adopted on the Flavia. A wise choice indeed, judging by the brilliant results of the Fulvia coupe, which was World Rally Champion in 1972. With a range of power options from 58 to 80bhp depending on the version, the Fulvia had performance characteristics that were markedly above its class. This very original car comes with its owner's manual.
