Lot 158 – Lancia Fulvia Coupe 1300S UK Spec Right Hand Drive 1972
Estimated Value : £8,000 – £10,000
The Lancia Fulvia Coupe is probably one of the prettiest Coupes to come out of the Lancia Factory. This Right Hand Drive UK spec car benefits from being a “Series 2” 1300S Model so it has the face-lifted body, the new 5 speed gearbox. Its 1298 cc engine now producing 90 hp and larger Girling brakes replacing the Series One Dunlop items. But unlike the Series Three that followed, it escaped Fiat’s (who by now owned Lancia) cost cutting exercise so still retains the nice wooden steering wheel, better seating with separate head rests and black faced clocks.
Although unfortunately there is no history with this car, for a UK Spec 1972 Lancia to be in this condition it has to of been restored at some point in its life! Its “Lord Blue” paint work while not being perfect, presents very well with no sign of rust, panel fit is good and all trims are present. Interior is very good with just the odd nick here and there. Carpets are obviously newer than the car so were probably replaced at the same time the car was restored and are still in very good order .
Under the bonnet Lancia’s famous narrow V4 engine fires up easily, shows excellent oil pressure, no sign of any leaks and all very clean and tidy. Gear box, clutch, general mechanics and electrics are good and the car will come with a fresh MOT.
All in all a rare RHD version of this ever popular Italian Coupe, ready to go and priced to sell.
