Raucous, brutal: ’72 Lancia Fulvia 1600HF
The Holy Grail of Lancia Fulvia lovers is the Series One 1.6HF, otherwise known as the Fanalone. It was the first Fulvia with the 1584cc version of the V4. It had a new block, a new head, a new crankshaft and special 42mm sidedraught Solexes. It also had the first Fulvia five-speed gearbox. This was the base for the most successful Fulvia rally cars. Lancia continued to use them right up to 1974 when the Stratos took over. Fanalones are rare and very valuable but creating a replica eligible for historic rallies, is not too hard. Today’s Fulvia 1600HF is prepared to compete in Group 4 historic rallies. In fact today’s car, presented by Targa Florio Classics, has done just that…many times. It is painted to appear like a Jolly Club team car. The interior has a full FIA roll cage and Fusina racing seats. The 1600cc engine is described as “raucous” mainly because there is little to no sound deadening material inside. The wheels are a set of 6 X 14 Cromodora alloys finished in a striking gold. These are in original condition and are shod in 185/60/14 Yokohama Advan A048 semi slick tires with plenty of rubber remaining. The brakes are the original Girling discs all round with the fronts benefiting from 4 piston calipers. Jamie’s asking price is £29,995 or about $49,900 USD. Click here for the listing.
