Technical specifications, photos and description:
The Fulvia was an extremely
forward-looking and modern car for its time when it was launched in
1963. It was available either as a saloon or as a coupé. Both types
had a choice of 1. 91. 1. 16 or 1. 98cc engines but the coupés were
also available with a 1. 84cc engine. Fulvias enjoyed an extensive
competition history which included winning the International Rally
Championship in 1972. The influential journal. 'Road and
Track'. after testing one in 1967 summed up the Fulvia as 'a
precision motorcar. an engineering tour de force'.
The Fulvia Berlina was designed by
Antonio Fessia to replace the Lancia Appia. It was a completely new
design. sharing virtually no components with its predecessor.
Whereas the Appia was a rear wheel drive car. the Fulvia moved to
front wheel drive like the Flavia. The general engineering design
of the Fulvia was identical to that of the Flavia with the major
exception of the engine; the Flavia having a four cylinder. br/>horizontally opposed engine and the Fulvia a 'Narrow Angle' V
configuration as featured on most production Lancias. The Fulvia
engine was mounted in front of its transaxle and featured
independent suspension at the front using wishbones and a single
leaf spring. while a solid axle with a panhard rod and leaf springs
was used in the rear. Four wheel Dunlop disc brakes were fitted to
first series Fulvias.
