In total, 1,258 1.6 HFs were built during 1969–70. We shipped this aluminum panel rally version over from Italy in 1983. Part of the import process required adding DOT approved bumpers, driving/turning lights, side mirrors and replacing the plexiglass side and rear windows to DOT safety glass. To mix things up a bit we did a blackout treatment of all chrome - added hood wind splitters (popular in the eighties but now we are like "what were we thinking!" and had a custom aluminum rear spoiler manufactured.
The overall Lancia Fulvia (Tipo 818) line was produced by Lancia between 1963 and 1976. Named after Via Fulvia, the Roman road leading from Tortona to Turin, it was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963. The Coupé HF (Tipo 818.140): 1966–67 was the competition version of the coupé, introduced later in 1965, carried a tuned version of the 1,216 cc engine producing 88 CV (65 kW; 87 hp) at 6,000 rpm. Bodywork was lightened by removing the bumpers, using an aluminium bonnet, doors and boot lid, Plexiglas side and rear windows, and bare steel wheels without hubcaps.
We had many amazing memories in this Lancia and it was one of our favorite all time cars - sadly, one that we continue to regret having sold.
