This 1967 Lancia Fulvia is a charming classic Italian coupe, which benefits from recent mechanical maintenance and is presented in good order. Under the bonnet is a 1.2-litre V4, which produces approximately 80bhp and drives the front wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. The odometer displays 55,274 km; however, this is not warranted.

A rare first-series example, this Fulvia was first registered in Italy in May 1967. Having spent much of its life in its home country, it was exported to the UK and registered with the DVLA in February 2016. After being acquired by its current owner less than one year ago, it has been serviced and lightly refurbished, and is now offered for sale.

Today, the bodywork appears to be in excellent condition, with no known damage or visible corrosion, thanks largely to the car’s many years in a warm Italian climate. Having previously been resprayed to a good standard, the Grigio Vinovo paintwork presents well. The brightwork is also in great shape, and the wing mirrors and badges have an attractive light patina, which further enhances the car’s classic appeal. It rides on a set of period-correct F.P.S. wheels, finished in gold, which have only a few minor scuffs.

Moving inside, this characterful Italian coupe’s red leather upholstery and trim presents with a time-earned patina. The front seats and rear bench are very smart, with no substantial wear to speak of. The vendor notes that the seats’ stitching had become brittle and damaged with age, so they enlisted the help of a talented re-upholsterer to repair them using new foam and colour-matched thread – but the leather was retained.

Ahead, the wood-trimmed dashboard is in fair order, showing some slight delamination but no cracks to its surface. There are some cracks on the top of the vinyl-covered dashboard, and the original two-spoke steering wheel has been replaced with a leather-wrapped BWA item. Impressively, the car still features its original, 54 year-old rubber floor mats, which feature various splits, but have been retained for posterity. All of the interior electrical items work as they should, and there are no warning lights displayed.

This Fulvia’s most recent routine maintenance was carried out by D Vessey & Co, who replaced the spark plugs and tuned the car on a dyno approximately 50 miles ago. Prior to this, the seller changed the engine oil in March 2021 at an indicated 55,100 km. Furthermore, the car received an engine service and its brakes were completely overhauled by Italian car specialist Ferdi’s Garage in early 2019. The vendor notes that the cam chain has been inspected and is in good condition, with no audible rattles when the engine is running. During their ownership, the seller has also had the car fitted with a 123 electronic ignition system, offering improved reliability.

Although it is exempt due to its age, this classic Lancia’s last MOT test was conducted on 20 March 2021 at an indicated 55,235 km, which resulted in a first-time pass without a single advisory. All four wheels are shod in Pirelli P3000 tyres in size 165/80 R13, which are in good condition and have ample tread remaining.

The car will be accompanied by its two original sets of keys, its owner’s manual which has been translated and reprinted in English, receipts for its recent maintenance, its MOT test certificate, its V5C and its original Italian registration documents. The seller is also supplying the car’s original tool kit, spare wheel and warning triangle. There is also a 1970s RAC motorist first-aid kit, which would make a fine prop but would be best used for display purposes only.

This series-one Lancia Fulvia is a delightful 1960s coupe, presented in very good condition and with a pleasing patina to its interior. Built in 1967, it predates Fiat’s takeover of the marque, and would be a credit to any collection of classic Lancias or other Italian vehicles.
