1971 Lancia Fulvia
For your consideration â€™71 Lancia Fulvia.Lancia dominated the Italian rally circuit in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and a Fulvia won the FIA International Championship for Manufacturers in 1972 (the predecessor series for the World Rally Championship). It's easy to see the racing heritage when driving one - handling and performance are sprightly, similar to a BMW 2002 from the same era.Paint quality is excellent over a straight and rust-free body. Bumpers, trim, lenses, glass, etc. are all in nice original condition. Original 14-inch Cromodora wheels with newer tires. Interior presents beautifully with classic Italian design - seats are both stylish and comfortable, door panels, headliner, carpet and dash are likewise in great condition. All gauges and lights are working properly.â€¨Mechanically, these cars were ahead of their time - featuring a narrow-angle 1.3 liter V4 with a single cylinder head, the engine architecture is similar to the modern-day Volkswagen VR6 engine (Lancia pioneered this design in the 1920s). Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission with a dogleg shift pattern. Runs and drives well and feels very "put together."Over the last year, major service includes a full gearbox overhaul with new clutch, synchros, bearings and bushings, plus a refurbished front subframe and suspension. Front brake calipers have also been rebuilt with new brake hoses.
