Zippy: ’66 Lancia Fulvia Berlina GT
What an absolutely cool little Italian sedan. Lancias are known for there jewel-like engineering. Many Italian car fans think you should choose a Lancia over an Alfa if all things were equal. There aren’t that many inexpensive Lancia Spiders around so Alfas win on the drop top wars but when you compare sedans or Coupes, there is a choice. Some say the Alfas are more handsome and we tend to agree. A GTV is one of the best designed cars of the decade, the Fulvia GT, not so good…but very cool. Fulvias are front-wheel drive with a sweet little narrow angle V-4 engine that loves to rev. Fulvia Berlina GTs are therefore one very sporty and willing boxy Italian sedan. And today’s featured car was the daily driver of the country’s best known Lancia experts, Jaan at eddinsmoto.com. We’ve been a frequent visitor to his site over the years and are always impressed by his cars, many purchased during his frequent rips to Italy. Today’s featured Berlina came from a vineyard in Italy and is said to come with a great nose (smell). Not musty at all but representative of its home for oh those many years. We will go out on a limb and say this car probably runs like a bandit. There’s a video on the site that supports this claim. The body appears solid and perhaps in need of some elbow grease to get shiny again. Either a low priority of Jaan’s or maybe the paint is a little thin. The interior looks livable but the seats may need some help. Make this a super rally/tour car with little effort and you will be the only one there. Only $15,000 does it. Not cheap for a domestic Berlina GT but then again, find another as nice for this money. Click here to contact Jaan.
