1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato 1.6

The Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato could almost be considered the forerunner to the modern hot hatchback. While the standard Fulvia was an exercise in proper proportions and elegance, the Zagato variant has a bit of a butch, bulldog stance about it. This car for sale in Washington State is not a concours example, but is a good runner for someone seeking high Italian style at a reduced price.

1972 Lancia Fulvia Zagato 1.6

Selling this 1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport (Zagato body) for a client. His reserve is much less than his investment. He simply has too many cars. Car is fitted with a 1.6 liter Fulvia V4 engine and is a second series car so it has a factory 5 speed gearbox. Fitted with Weber manifold and 40DCOE carb. Engine has less than 3,000 miles on rebuild. New clutch pressure plate and release bearing. New Exhaust in last 200 miles. Front seats freshly upholstered to a very high standard. Excellent life left on tires. Car runs and drives very well pulls strong. Unusual vintage wheels. Incredible dash in excellent shape. No rust in floors very solid car that came from California, was sold to my client by Fantasy Junction a couple of years ago.

Clear Washington State title. No signs that the car was ever wrecked. No spare tire. No bumpers (that is the way he got it). Odometer shows 80,916 KM I believe that can not be far from accurate but I have no way of verifying that. Paint passes the 20 ft test, shiny but not concours.

This Zagato Sport has some issues that need to be sorted but it's mostly complete. This would be a good car for someone seeking a good runner or an easy restoration project. The best Zagato Sports fetch between $35,000 to $40,000, so this car might realistically bring $20,000 to $25,000.

    Too bad these are FWD but they are way cooler than a GTI or anything like that.
