These little Fulvias are very hard to come by – even more so in a roadworthy and usable order! You just have to check eBay or the other various sites to see how many project cars are listed. They represent excellent value for money against the Alfa equivalents – what’s more is that these cars are much rarer and are increasing in value year-on year.

The Fulvia was well ahead of its time – disc brakes all round, a five speed gearbox and a very clever V4 engine which put out 90+bhp as standard – when compared to other performance cars of its period, these really were something quite special.

This car was originally sold by a Lancia dealer in Switzerland, and it spent all of its life there until around 5 years ago, when it was imported into the UK. We purchased the car a couple of years ago and found a new owner for the car, he’s now downsizing his fleet so we have bought it back!

Over the past few years, the car has had quite a lot of mechanical work, major items include a new fuel pump, new battery, new engine mounts, new coil, plugs, cap, rotor arm, points and plug leads; new rear brake pads and rear brake compensator, new windscreen washer motor, a flush of the coolant system, retuning of the carburettors, and much more! The great thing about these cars is that nearly everything is easy to access and work on – it really is a well engineered little car.

The bodywork and paintwork is in good order all round – the car has been restored and repainted at some point, I would say probably about 15-20 years ago. The paint finish remains very nice and has a really nice shine to it. There are a few VERY minor areas of blistering but absolutely nothing that detracts from the overall appearance of the car. The panel gaps are all very good, and the door bottoms etc are free from rot – amazing to see on a car of this age! An aluminium bootlid has been fitted at some point, and the bonnet is the original steel type – a lot of cars have ill-fitting fibreglass replacements. The front subframe mounting points all appear nice and clean.

The car is fitted with original Fulvia HF Cromadora magnesium wheels, which are very rare indeed – the last set I saw sold for well over £1000. The car is shod with Bridgestone tyres all round which have plenty of tread left.

The interior is also in fine fettle, with a good quality carpet set, original seats and seat covers (I’m told that the headrests were an option for the Swiss market). The headlining is fantastic, too. One thing to note is a slight crack on the windscreen, which hasn’t grown any bigger since we have known the car – it’s on the passenger side and well out of driver’s view.

Mechanically, everything appears to be fine – oil pressure is just as it should be, and the car does not overheat. I’ve done a compression test and they are all good – the car was fitted with a new head gasket a few years ago and there is no excess smoke from the exhaust, etc. The car pulls well and the gearbox is pretty good for one of these – no worn synchromesh and no jumping out of gear. The car stops in a straight line and the front wheels lock on hard braking, just as they should. It rides very well for a 1970s car, too!

The car has a current UK V5 document and has been correctly registered, and there are various bills and receipts for the work carried out over recent years, but sadly not a lot from its life in Switzerland.

All in all, this is a straight, usable little car – it’s not a concourse show car but it’s not the usual tarted-up rubbish either! I believe you would struggle to find a better car at this sort of money. If I had the time, I’d seriously consider prepping it as a historic rally car for the HRCR championship, but then again, maybe it’d be a shame to mess with such an unmolested example.


The previous owner bought a set of top-quality Group 4 wheelarch extensions from Italy, (not the cheap ones you see on eBay that don’t fit!), but never got around to fitting them. These are available separately should the buyer of the car wish to purchase them.
