1974 Lancia Fulvia 1.3 Series III

The Lancia Fulvia (Tipo 818) was produced by Lancia between 1963 and 1976. Named after Via Fulvia, the Roman road leading from Tortona to Turin, it was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and manufactured in three variants: Berlina 4-door saloon, 2-door Coupé, and Sport.

The Fulvia Coupé was a compact two-door, three-box coupé introduced in 1965. Like the saloon it was designed in-house by Piero Castagnero. The coupé used a 150 mm (5.9 in) shorter wheelbase. Beautifully built and exquisite to drive it was a cut above the Fiats and Fords of the day. Initially fitted with an 80bhp 1200 cc engine, power was increased to 87bhp with the 1.3 rally and then 90bhp in the Rally S.

The Fulvia's narrow-angle DOHC Lancia V4 engine was mounted well forward at a 45° angle. Its unusually narrow 12° V allowed a single cylinder head to cover all the cylinders, with one cam each for intake and exhaust valves. The front-wheel drive Fulvia used a longitudinal engine mounted in front of its transaxle. An independent suspension in front used wishbones and a single leaf spring, while a beam axle and leaf springs was used in back. Four wheel Dunlop disc brakes were fitted to first series Fulvia’s. In 1970 the brakes were uprated with larger Girling callipers all round. The Fulvia was replaced only in 1977 by a 1.3-litre version of the Beta Coupé.

Lancia officially went back into motor racing with the Fulvia after its withdrawal from Formula 1 in 1955. With the exception of 1970, Fulvia’s won the Italian Rally Championship every year from 1965 to 1973. The Fulvia's rallying career reached its zenith in 1972, when Lancia won the International Championship for Manufacturers two rounds in advance. It was with the introduction of the legendary Lancia Stratos in 1974 that the Fulvia retired from front line rallying.

Our car is a 1.3S Fulvia 3, built from 1974–76, mechanically the same as the earlier Series 2 1.3 S delivering 89bhp, with a 0-100 kmh time of 11.9 secs and a quarter mile time of 18.3 sec. Originally a UK car, but has been residing in Hong Kong for many years.
