Back Lot Special: 1967 Lancia Fulvia Zagato

It is not everyday that you run across a 1967 Lancia Fulvia Zagato sitting  at your local used car dealer. Especially one in Michigan offering “financing for all”. It may not be the best source for a classic Italian sports car, but this one is so special that it is worth saving. Find the eBay listing here with bidding at $5,980.

Lancias were well-engineered and highly innovative cars. Luckily, this particular one pre-dates the Fiat takeover and still offers many of the attributes that made them so special. The ’67 Fulvia Zagato featured alloy body panels and a V4 engine that is still a work of art to behold today. The dual overhead cams and low curb weight helped make the most of the Zagato’s 88 b.h.p. The seller doesn’t offer any details on recent maintenance, so anyone interested will want to do their due diligence.

The car featured here is said to have just 13,274 miles on the clock, but we wonder how accurate that is. Has the odometer rolled over once already? The condition seems to indicate low use, but it’s still not quite as clean as we’d expect with that sort of mileage. The steering wheel looks worn and some trim pieces like the kick panels in the footwell appear rough. It’s possible for minor faults like these to become pricey fixes if the next owner is a perfectionist.

The body’s red paint appears original, but it’s hard to say without closer inspection. It seems consistent from panel to panel, and the chrome bumpers and trim remain in salvageable condition. The car has good glass and what appears to be a fresh set of tires mounted on period-correct steel rims.

Lancias, like most Italian cars, are not easy or cheap to restore. However, their legendary FWD handling and sonorous engine note will make it all worthwhile. While the listing is lacking information concerning the car’s current needs,we are hopeful that someone will be able to get this alloy-bodied beauty back on the road and out of this used car lot.

    This car looks exactly like an alloy-bodied Fulvia that sold at the RM auction in Fort Lauderdale one month ago for $8,800.

    Wonder……….

    Actually the wheels are not correct Lancia wheels, they have been modified with wider offset rims. Car also appears to be fitted with later 5 speed second series gearbox. and aluminum headlight trim. suspect the rectangular headlamps were retrofitted as well. As a US car from 1967 it would have been factory fitted with 4 5 1/2″ headlamps. Still a neat car.
    The cloth inserts on the front and rear seats were not factory nor is the steering wheel, should be a two spoke wood rimmed wheel.
