Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder August 17th – 19th, 2017 at Russo and Steele’s 17th Annual Monterey, California Auction. Please contact us for more information.
Presented for auction is a 1967 Lancia Fulvia HF – First Series, No. 275 of approx 400. As the owner for the past 30 years, you will find the HF a most pleasant ride.
Track – very competitive in 1300cc class, its easy to drive, understeers near the limit, poised, dependable.
Vintage Rallies – competent to a fault, it wont tire you out – great machine. Highway – firm, steering light, great visibility.
These were the lightweights, under 2000 pounds, with alloy hood, doors, trunk, plastic windows, aircraft seats, and threadbare carpets and special motors.
These machines led to the Stratos. No rust, 98,000 km
Body stripped in 1989, full Sikkens respray, and new mouldings, plastic windows, seats redone in original pattern. Original headliner, carpet, door panels, dash, gauges, tranny refreshed, new clutch assy, new subframe bushes, new upper and lower ball-joints, steering rod, tie rods, lower wishbone rebuilt with adjustable heim-joint.
Motor totally rebuilt in 92, original produced 101-hp, our target 120. Motor mods include:
New, flow-benched head (24 % flow increase)!! New 35mm Dellortos, New intake, exhaust valves, New springs, New race cams, reground to improve streetability, New .040 Venolia pistons, New con-rods, Head C-Cd, all balanced, all good.
Exhaust improved from ceramic header-collector to Supertrapp. Konis all around.
The HF likes about a half-gallon leaded race fuel with a fill, but works on Premium, the CR is 9.75.
Subframe repainted in 92 with the motorwork. Needless to say, radiator and oil-cooler fully serviced, new oil cooler hoses, and all coolant hoses replaced. Electronic ignition installed inside original, recurved distributor. Battery relocated to the trunk, roll-cage, shaved Goodyears, 5-point driver harness, 4-point passenger harness – we’re good to go!!!
Note: This example is an appreciating, useable machine that has delivered my brother and I much Vintage Rallying success, and my hope is for someone who can continue the adventures to come.
