1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600

The Fulvia was the car that put Lancia front and center in the minds of rally drivers. Made famous by its impressive showing as the car which won the 1972 International Rally Championship, the Fulvia was the last car to be designed wholly by Lancia, with Fiat taking the reigns on product development thereafter. These coupes had a V4 engine mounted at 45 degrees and the Zagato added a bit of pedigree with bespoke styling and aluminium body panels. Here is a 1971 Fulvia Zagato Sport 1600 with the largest capacity V4 engined offered, a 1.6 liter.

1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600

This is a 1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600 - Imported from Italy in 1996 to Brookfield Wisconsin. It has a 1.6 Ltr, V4 Engine that starts and runs very well. This vehicle is mechanically in great shape. The odometer reads 95,000 KM, roughly 59,000 Miles, but runs and drives like a new vehicle. The gearbox also has been taken care of and shifts well with no syncro issues. No major repairs on the engine, gearbox, or other major parts have been needed.

Clearly, this vehicle has been stored well as there is no rust to be found anywhere on the vehicle. Please refer to photos of the underside too. There is no frame or body rust whatsoever. The paint is original and still in great shape for its age - there are no dings or major scratches in the paint. The interior surfaces are all also in great shape the leather looks as if it has only been rarely used. Included with this sale is the original manual, as well as assorted service and registration records from Italy. This Lancia is in great shape and ready for a new home - whether you plan to drive this car daily, or show it, this car is up to the task! Don't miss your chance to get a Lancia in great shape!

Personally, I prefer the delicate looks of the standard Fulvia over the Zagato version, but with 115 horsepower on tap, this is one cracker of a lightweight. The matte trim and absence of the usual chrome bumpers lends an air of weekend track day car to this particular Fulvia, but with it's five speed gearbox and accomodating hatchback design, it would be practical enough to use during the week. With about five days left in the auction, bidding is glancing $30,000 and the reserve has not been met. This is very dear money for a Fulvia of any kind, as honest examples are seeing prices top out in the low $20,000 range. One can't be certain if we've reached the tipping point in terms of Fulvia popularity, but there is no denying that car represents a high point in Lancia engineering and innovation.

  4. Currently, people are using laxatives to lose weight, believing that they inhibit the
    absorption of calories into their body. When you eat fast it does not give your body the chance
    to digest the food. If I need to lose weight I simply do the research on some
    of the dietary world’s biggest claims and then discover the
    truth for myself.
