1968 Lancia Fulvia Zagato 1,3

Revealed in 1963, the Lancia Fulvia is an ambitious and innovative car caracterised by the transmission to the front wheels and the original architecture of the engine (4 cylinders in a very narrow V-shape and a cylinder head). As early as 1965, two coupes make their appearance: the “Fulvia Coupé”, a model developed by the factory, but also the exclusive “Fulvia Sport” due to Ercole Spada, a young designer who designed a number of remarkable models while working for Zagato. This collaboration between the manufacturer and the bodybuilder is in line with previous productions, based on the Appia, Flavia or Flaminia, which are both unusual and aerodynamic. The power-to-weight ratio is favourable with 87 hp for only 960 kg. Observers praise the Fulvia’s driving pleasure and handling, enhanced by the lightness of the “Sport” model, whose bodywork was made of aluminium, as is customary with the great body builder Zagato, who favours the use of this noble material for his four-wheeled works of art.

This Fulvia Sport Zagato is a Series I, July 1968. Motor n 818332. In 1966 Sport was upgraded to an (818.302) 1,298 cc engine from the Rallye 1.3, producing 87 hp (65 kW) at 6,000 rpm,utilizes a steel body with aluminum panels for the side-hinged hood, the doors, and the spare-tire compartment lid. It features an electrically controlled rear hatch to aid cabin ventilation, a feature utilized in other Spada designed coupes. The body is finished in the factory shade Ostenda Green. Low-back Zagato seats are trimmed in white vynil, with the door panels and rear shelf upholstered to match. Veglia instrumentation includes a 200-km/h speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer, with gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure mounted in between. The 1,298cc narrow-angle V4 is equipped with factory Solex induction and backed by a four-speed manual gearbox.

Fluid changes and a valve adjustment reportedly were performed in May 2019, at which point a number of cooling hoses and the spark plugs also were replaced and a new clutch assembly and throwout bearing were installed.A tool kit, jack, and matching spare tire reside in the rear storage compartment, which is accessible via a drop-down door between the taillights.
