Hi! First post here. Just bought a ’72 coupe from a gentleman in Santa Monica who had purchased it last year but changed his mind about bringing it back to solid driver condition. So now it is my turn. I am new to Lancia, although my parents did own a Beta HPE in the late eighties/early nineties. My Italian experience was a ’66 Alfa GTV 1750, a ’96 GTV turbo (burned to the ground) and a ’97 Fiat coupe (timing belt failure at 10K miles). I currently also have a ’69 Mercedes 280 SL, an ’86 Nissan 300ZX and a ’90 Ford Bronco II. I look forward to restoring the Fulvia, one of my all-time favorite cars, and will need some help I’m sure on locating parts. Like front seats for starters! I do all my wrenching myself, although in daily life am a pencil-pusher.
Good morning Cees – Congrats on your purchase. I also own a ‘72 Fulvia Coupe – great car and great group of people in the ALC. On parts, Adan Figueroa- LaLancia – around the corner from you and Mike Kristick in PA are go to sources and if parts can’t be found domestically, many sources is Europe – Lancia Vintage, Pieces-Lancia, Berni Motors, Jolly, Ricambi. And Ed Levin – also around the corner from you – is a remarkable resource. Just go to Bring a Trailer, search Lancia auctions – Alfa too – and read comments and back and forth between Ed and other commentators and you‘ll earn at least the equivalent of an associates degree in Lancia history and engineering plus BaT has a two part segment on Lancia plus the Club has a great magazine – Lanciana. All the best on getting the car on the road!
Many thanks Tom, very useful information. The car was delivered to me a week ago, and yesterday I got to the stage of removing engine, subframe etc from beneath the car. It needs everything: mechanical, interior and body/paint work. Those sources will come in very handy as I figure out what replacement parts I will need. The car runs, but poorly. Exhaust pipe was pinched almost shut. Well, lots of fun working on this pocket coupe!
