The Lancia Fulvia was introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show. The very stylish Italian car was in production right through to 1976 and were offered in three available variants; Berlina, Coupe and Sport. The Lancia Fulvias are noted for their successful role in automobile racing history, particularly winning the International Rally Championship in 1972. The Lancia Fulvia was described in the motor industry as a 'precision motor car, an engineering tour de force'.
This very original example was first registered on the 6th February 1975. HBL 811N has been within the same family for many, many years and has only covered 68000 miles from new. Unbelievably, this Lancia has never required any welding work and the underside is structurally excellent. This is a model known for rust issues and we are delighted to state that the bodywork is perfect and until 2013, the car had never even been re-painted. Our bodyshop, Malton Coachworks stripped the Lancia down and reported to us that this was the first time the car had ever had paintwork. The old paintwork was dull as expected after 33 years. The paint finish is now exceptional with a gleaming finish in the vehicles original colour. Prior to paintwork, in the region of £4000 was spent on mechanical re-commissioning work after several years parked in a garage. The Lancia interior is totally original and has nicely aged with a lovely patina. The engine bay and boot area are both totally original and clean.
The Lancia has toured France many times and was used for family holidays during the 1980's and 1990's. The car is great to drive and as a result of recent expenditure, is ready to go. The engine sounds and performs superbly; the gearbox a delight to use and it handles and brakes well. This is a true time warp and original, low mileage and low ownership examples are particularly hard to find. Unrepeatable.
