Same family from the beginning
The Lancia Fulvia, which appeared in 1963, was a revolution in the automotive world in the 1960s. It adopts front wheel drive and a four-cylinder V engine, V4 for the intimate ones. First presented as a saloon, it was then considered the most elegant sedan among its competitors and its line was perfectly in line with the aesthetics of the 1960s, breaking with the Lancia Appia. In 1965, two coupes appeared in the Fulvia catalogue, the Fulvia Coupé developed by the factory, and the very exclusive Fulvia Sport created by Ercole Spada, designer for Zagato.

This Fulvia Sport Zagato 1.3L was bought new at the factory and registered in France by the aunt of the current owner. It is one of the 710 rare versions with all-aluminium bodywork. Its current owner took possession of it in 2008. The car was painted but was kept in a largely original condition. Today it has a few minor defects but remains in good overall condition. The interior offers a nice patina, the whole is original. In 2012, the Lancia underwent a front end overhaul, including a replacement of silentblocks, a brake overhaul and a revision of the coo
