LANCIA FULVIA COUPE’ 1.3s 2nd SERIES MONTECARLO (1975)

CHASSIS N. 818.630 *068042

ENGINE: V4

DISPLACEMENT: 1298 CM3

POWER: 91 cv

BODY: COUPE’

GEARBOX: MANUAL

DRIVE: LHD

THE LAST FULVIA COUPE’

The Fulvia Coupé was designed by Piero Castagnero, and was his absolute masterpiece: a small, classic and elegant coupé perfect for young sportsmen, elegant city ladies and World rally champions.

The first ones came in 1965 with a 1,3 litre engine good for 80 bhp, and a weight of just 950 kg.

After an incredibly successful career in the world rally championship -then at its highest point of popularity- it was superseded by the purpose built Stratos.

With the Fulvia Coupé, Lancia enjoyed the start of a successful period of glory in motor racing, the like of which it had never seen before, even with the famous Racing Department run by Gianni Lancia in the 1950s. The Fulvia started a line of great cars, like the Stratos, 037, Delta Integrale, S4, cherished to this day by enthusiasts the world over.

The car we offer today belongs to the last series of the Fulvia Coupé: built after the 1969 Fiat takeover, the “Montecarlo” final series was a celebration of the Fulvia’s success in the classic Monte. It had a livery based on that of the rally cars, with a red body and matt black bonnet. It has a 1300 cm3 motor, with 91 bhp and a very advanced five speed gearbox.

Owned and fastidiously kept by a Florentine collector for many years, it is in very good condition, and has a valid revisione (MOT) until July 2020.

This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

FIAT 500C TOPOLINO (1950)

A SPLENDID TOPOLINO C

Charged in the mid-‘30s with the development of the new small Fiat, Dante Giacosa created a short chassis with a front anular crossmember onto which the small engine was fixed.  With a weight of just 535 kilos, even the miserly 13 horsepower were able to develop a speed of 85 km/h, more than sufficient for the roads of the time.

After the war, Fiat renewed the 500 to make it more modern and easy to produce in the new factories. The new Topolino, officially named “500 C”, had a more modern front end and a more spacious cockpit.

This 500C was first registered in Perugia in 1950, then in Florence in 1974, and still has the Florence plates and papers.

The previous owner restored it around thirty years ago and, as it happened then, did not resist the temptation to modernize it and make it more luxurious than it originally was. As a matter of fact, the two-tone paintjob and the upholstery are well done but not original.

Apart from this, the car is in very good conditions indeed, and it has been used very little in the past ten years. It can very easily be brought back to its original conditions.

As all Topolinos, hundreds of which have been raced in the original Mille Miglias, this car is eligible for the annual revival of the “Most Beautiful Race in The World”, as well as most other classic car events.

This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

MORGAN PLUS SPORT 4 ROADSTER (1993)

A MORGAN IS UNIQUE

The Morgan Motor Company is one of the oldest British manufacturers, and until two months ago it was still owned by the family of Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan, who founded it in 1909.

Since then Morgan has been synonimous with handbuilt traditional sports cars: in the past forty years, they were considered like new Vintage cars.

This motor car was built in late 1992, and then sent to the official Morgan dealer in Rome.

Morgan’s own paperwork states it was equipped with a two liter Rover T16 engine, with number 20T4HG64-100159, while the gearbox was number 28°0191920H and the rear axle M92-49. We even have the number of the original key, which is 7465.

Meticulously maintained by its custodian, this Morgan still has the original Connaught Green paint, with black leather upholstery. She was ordered with many options, such as chromed wire wheels, galvanised chassis, dashboard roll bar, seat belts, and many more.

Despite its Vintage look, this car, with 132 bhp and a weight of just 1000 kg, modern tyres and brakes, allows for a very exciting performance level.

It is like new and therefore represents a unique opportunity to buy a Morgan before it gets in the very closed group of Morgan collectors and traders. In addition, the Brand having been sold to the Investment Trust which already owns Aston Martin, we can be sure that the next models will be faster, more luxurious but much more expensive and thus inaccessible.

This may be one of the last opportunity to afford a ‘proper Morgan’.

This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

RARE BRITISH “DOLCE VITA” ROADSTER IN PERFECT CONDITIONS

The Triumph Motor Company entered the automobile market in the early 1920s; in 1945 was then bought by Standard Motor Company. Later the brand ended in the British Leyland conglomerate, then in the Rover Company, and these days, though unused for years, belongs to BMW.

Starting from 1952, Triumph launched a number of sportcars: from the TR1 to the TR3. They were to be followed by the TR4, and then TR5 and TR6.

The TR3 was launched in 1955 and then superseded by the TR3A, whose main differences were the “wide mouth” grille and the engine tune which allowed the power to go from 95 to 100 bhp.

With 100 horsepower for little more than a thousand kilograms of weight, a TR3A offers a great driving pleasure, as long as one does not expect modern day roadholding and braking.

For these reasons, these roadster were always in demand. The use of one of these for a starring role in “La Dolce Vita”, arguably the masterpiece of Italian motion pictures of the ‘50s, made them even more popular.

The car on offer today has been owned by the seller for more than 30 years, has always been carefully maintained and is complete with top, tonneau cover and sidescreens.

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

A PERFECT, LOW MILEAGE, LATE R4

In 1956, at the dawn of the French postwar economic and motoring boom, the new Renault Chairman, Pierre Dreyfus, requested a new economy motor car that was to take the place of the small and uncomfortable rear engined 4CV, as well as challenging the basic but effective Citroen 2CV. 

the R4 was born: a car that was not beautiful but still pleasing, not futuristic but technically advanced, not performance-oriented but practical, comfortable and reliable enough to enjoy more than twenty years of success and eight million units produced.

It was produced until 1992 in different versions, with engines from 600 to 1100 cm3, and the practicality of a small ‘do anything’ station wagon.

By the end of the 1980s Renault had to stop production in its South Paris site, as it was causing too much pollution. All the factory’s chroming was done on an island on the river Seine, and that was too much for a factory that, in the last fifty years, had been surrounded by the growing Capital.

The “Quatr’elle” production was then concentrated in a satellite plant in ex-Yugoslavia, which continued for just a few years as the car was not adaptable to the new pollution and safety requirements.

This car is from this period, and as such it has the updated interior with the R5-derived steering wheel and dashboard.

It is a low-mileage example (roughly 52,000 miles) that has been completely renewed by the previous owner in 2017. Most of these cars have been driven over phenomenal mileages and consumed to the last breath of their life, and this specimen represents a very rare opportunity to purchase a pristine example.

Personally, I can testify this is a great little car that can do everything and go anywhere, owning an 850 cm3 specimen I bought new in 1980!

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

LANCIA FLAMINIA 2500 GT TOURING (1960)

THE ITALIAN GENTLEMAN’S EXPRESS

Vincenzo Lancia’s cars were among the most innovative, with a series of breakthroughs like the monocoque structure, indipendent front suspension or hydraulic brakes.

In 1950 Lancia was the first manufacturer to put in production a V6 engine: more compact than a 6 in line, more sophisticated than a four, the V6 still represents the best architecture for displacements between two and three liters.

With the 1957 Flaminia, Lancia for once was more revolutionary in terms of styling rather than technically. The new car had a boldly innovative line and a wide grille instead of the traditional shield, but the very efficient, light and balanced drivetrain of the Aurelia was retained.

A compact alluminium engine, with gearbox mounted way back in unit with the differential and inboard brakes were still way ahead than whatever the German competitors were offering. Only the Aurelia front suspension was altered by Lancia engineers.

The saloon and the Coupé (built on a shortened 2750 mm. wheelbase) had been designed by Pinin Farina, while Touring Superleggera worked their magic on an even shorter (2520 mm.) chassis, as did Zagato.

The “Flaminia GT Touring” was low, 200 kg lighter than the Pinin Farina Coupé, and was a perfect Grand Tourer.

In fact, the Flaminia developed a very ample coupé range, with the PF two-door saloon, the Touring GT and the Zagato sportscar.

The exceptional Flaminia offered today is the 432nd of the 863 1st Series built, between 1958 and 1961, with the 2,5 litre engine with single carburettor and 119 bhp.

It always was kept in Bologna, and was bought around 40 years ago by two well known collector brothers. Only used in rallies and always perfectly maintained, it was then completely restored in in the late 1980s.

It shows a perfect patina, while mechanically is still like new. It is so good that it was chosen for an exclusive article published on the second issue of “The Road Rat”, the most authoritative British car magazine of this period.

This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

THE LAST VERSION OF THE CLASSIC MINI

Launched in August 1959, the Mini went on providing affordable motoring and contributing in the social changes of the 1960s.

Having obtained an almost mythical status, it kept on through the 1970s and ‘80s regardless of how the world was changing, but in the 1990s it too had to retire, as it could not possibly keep up with the safety and anti-pollution rules. The fact that meanwhile the whole British Automotive industry had collapsed did ot help…

It had been produced by BMC, BLMC, and finally Rover… which was in turn bought by BMW.

As the Bavarian Motor Works had planned to launch a completely new Mini in the early 2000s, it kept the old one alive in order to avoid the Brand to lose its appeal.

The car offered today was produced in this very last period and therefore it is the most modern old Mini: enhanced with electronic fuel injection, with catalyzer and Euro 1 rating.

It had just two owners and has been driven for only 41,000 miles.

It was always perfectly cared for, and very recently it has received a thorough check and service, with a new sport eshaust system and new tyres.

Body and upholstery are original, they have just been cleaned, polished and detailed. It has regular Italian papers, and its biennial “MOT” is valid until April 2021.

This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to check its fluids, filters and perishable elements.

THE BEST CAR IN THE WORLD

When the XJ was launched in 1968, it marked Jaguar’s passage from a specialist factory to a proper manufacturer, able to play its role among the world’s great.

With a sporty line, a luxurious leather and walnut interior and a very sophisticated drivetrain, the XJ was the first modern luxury saloon.

When four years later Lyons launched the top version with a V12, the XJ really was at the top of the automotive world.

The V12 engines only were used in touring cars for a brief period before the war, mainly in the US. Since Ferrari started in 1947, they were only considered in super sports cars. Lyons changed all that, and everybody had to follow his example.

After a few years Jaguar’s V12 was modernised with new high-turbolence chambers which increased dramatically its efficiency and consumption.

When CAR magazine run a Giant Test with the XJ12, the Mercedes Benz 560 S, the BMW 750 and the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, the surprise verdict was that the Jaguar was the Best Car in the World!

Today we offer a rare opportunity to acquire a pristine and original example of a very rare Italian XJ12, perfectly maintained and with an ASI Targa Oro for the price of a secondhand citycar: make sure you don’t miss it!

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

THE SMALL LUXURY SALOON

Vincenzo Lancia was a pioneer racing driver first, then a manufacturer. He was not an engineer, but introduced many innovations in the early automotive industry, such as with the 1923 Lambda, first car with monocoque structure, hydraulic brakes and indipendent front suspension.

For many years, the Lancia range had a full size saloon and a small one: the Astura and the Augusta, the Aprilia and the Ardea, the Aurelia and the Appia – later, the Flavia and the Fulvia.

The Aurelia was a very successful and innovative two litre saloon, with the world’s first production V6, indipendent suspension, inboard brakes, rear mounted gearbox, and so on.

Its smaller sibling, the Appia, was simpler, with a tiny 1100 cm3 V4 and solid axle rear suspension, but still it was very well built, and very spacious. Entry was very easy due to the lack of ‘B’ pillar, and the car could seat six.

Its style was inspired by the Aurelia, and was produced in three series from 1953. The Second series was launched in 1956 and had a more modern rear end with a bigger luggage compartment. It was produced in about 22,000 units before the Third and last Series came out in 1957.

The Appia we are offering today comes from this stock: it has a low mileage and is mostly preserved in great condition. Mechanically it has been overhauled and the paintwork has been refreshed, while the upholstery is very good and completely original.

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

A 1100 WOLF IN SHEEP CLOTHING

That of the Fiat 1100 is a long family line, going back to the 508C of 1937. This car was mildly adapted and proposed in the post-war years, but a whole new model was created and launched in 1953.

The 1100/103 was a brand new monocoque motor car, but the engine was still strongly related to the pre-war 1100, and it was so good that it lasted for a quarter century. The new model had a three-box ‘ponton’ saloon body.

The 103 had a successful run from 1953 to 1962 and more than a million units, produced in a host of series, such as the E, the D and finally the H. It played an important role in this country’s industrialization and motorization process.

The displacement under 1100 cm3 was fiscally advantageous, and some versions were created with more luxury even if the car was small: one such car was the 1100/103H, often produced with a duo-tone livery.

The car on sale today started life as a comfortable and serious 1100H Lusso model, but in recent years it has been restored and tuned for racing by its owner, the boss of a well known restoration business.

The engine has been tuned for more power, and the body has been lightened: in any case the car will be sold with a host of original parts with which the new owner will be able to bring it back to factory condition.

The 1100 has been used in rallyes, hillclimbs and regularity meetings with great gusto, and is ready for a new owner to enjoy.

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.

A VERY RARE, AND MILLE MIGLIA ELIGIBLE, “CARROZZERIE SPECIALI” 600 FROM THE FIRST MONTH OF PRODUCTION

In the mid-fifties the venerable Topolino C, now only produced in Belvedere form, was just too old for both the clients and the factory.

Under the guidance of Dante Giacosa the Fiat technical department, then in one of its best periods, produced the 600: a vastly better and simpler car for those who had to produce them as well as those who wanted to buy them. As a matter of fact, 900,000 units were produced in the first five years: three times the Topolino C’s volume.

The 600 was launched at the Geneva Motor Show on March the 10th, 1955. The car on offer today was registered on May the 4th of the same year, and therefore it is among the very first produced. It is in fact a very rare first series, with sliding side windows.

What makes it even more special is the fact that it is one of the very few which were enhanced by a special department, where she received a duo-tone paint and a host of accessories, like foglamps and window deflectors.

This job was done in a separate shop in the Lingotto factory, and the cars proudly sported the badge “Fiat Carrozzerie Speciali”.

It belongs to a well known classic cars restored, who brought her back to pristine conditions, to the point that she now surely is one of the rarest and best 600s around.

Having been produced in 1955, it is obviously Mille Miglia eligible.

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.
