Lancia was always an innovative marque, and the Fulvia Sport Zagato was no exception. While the Fulvia Coupe was a thing of automotive beauty, the Fulvia Sport Zagato cuts more of a butch look. A tad more ugly, but still beautiful in its purposefulness. The sharp lines of this early Zagato Sport for sale in California are set off nicely by the black paintwork and restored red interior.
1967 Lancia Fulvia Zagato Sport, One of the first 600 Series-2 cars; 1.3 liter; alloy body panels; very nice inside and out and all original except for the interior was re-done; needs some minor tune-up but starts and runs fine; very minor paint blistering near the bottom of the doors and roof gutter but not very noticeable; aftermarket Panasport wheels no original wheels included but can be sourced; bought indirectly from the original owner's estate. Please be advised, this car is for sale locally and the seller reserves the right to cancel the auction if sold.
While the seller describes this as a 1967 model, I'm curious as to why this car has a five-speed transmission. Either it was swapped with a later gearbox or this is a later model Sport Zagato. That issue notwithstanding, the Fulvia Zagatos due command a bit of a higher price than the normal Fulvia coupe, but when it comes to a Zagato, this is about as cheap as they come. Zagato sports can range anywhere from $20,000 to $40,000, putting this one right smack in the middle of the range. I'd say this car may be just a tad overpriced, given the non-original wheels and some of the paintwork issues, but if the seller is open to a little negotiation, this would be a tasty little piece of Zagato history for the collector on somewhat of a budget.
