LANCIA Fulvia Berlina (1963-1964)

Designed to replace the ageing Lancia Appia, the Lancia Fulvia 4-door sedan was released in 1963 and was built in the Lancia’s new factory in Chivasso.

Despite a not particularly attractive exterior design, the Fulvia was equipped with ahead of the time mechanics, such as four-wheel disc brakes, a synchomesh gearbox and a fully independent suspension.

Like the Flavia, the Fulvia had a front-wheel-drive system and was powered by a longitudinally-mounted V4 engine with a single cylinder head. With a total displacement of 1091 cmc, the small V4 provided a maximum power of 58 hp, which was enough to propel the aerodynamic Fulvia to a maximum speed of 138 km/h.

With customers asking for a more powerful Fulvia, Lancia introduced the 2C version in 1964. The 2C model had 71 hp and the top speed went up to 145 km/h.

Aesthetically, the Fulvia 2C featured slight design updates such as the absence of the bolts on the bumpers, as well as the identification plate on the grille.

Inside, the 2C featured a mechanical tachometer that was mounted on the dashboard.

While the first version of the Fulvia was still available for sale, it was no longer requested by the customers. To avoid loss, Lancia converted the Fulvia into the Fulvia C2, thus many of the C2s had the characteristics of a 1C (1963 model).
