Title: Flavia/Fulvia Shopping
Post by: LanciAlan on 11 July, 2011, 11:44:18 AM
Greetings

As I seem to have sold my Flaminia and am delivering it to the UK around the AGM later this month, I am looking for something interesting, cheap and cheerful in the Fulvia/Flavia line to bring back to Ireland on the empty trailer (a Fulvia Zagato project that would have fitted the bill went beyond my reach on eBay yesterday at 2200).

eBay is perhaps too high profile a place to be looking for a Zagato and perhaps too low profile to be selling a Flaminia (mine only rose to 1700 on the second time of asking) but I am sure there are many other interesting project cars languishing in members' garages like mine and just waiting to be rediscovered.

So I am broadening my search. I have a particular interest in a Zagato project/donor/parts car at the moment as I only have one of those in stock already I but would consider anything really.

Does anyone have any leads on a Fulvia/Flavia project or parts car?

Alan

You are suffering from empty space syndrome. ;D

Don't worry about the empty space syndrome, it never lasts long and is easily cured (but the cure may be expensive) !!!!!!!!!

Technically its called Disconnected Remote Empty-space Syndrome Syndrome (DRESS) as the sufferer  tries to fill a non-existent space they perceive exists  in a remote garage location by acquiring a car that is not for sale from an even more remote location and using money they don't actually have. The illness is more distressing to those with whom the sufferer interacts, particularly as they involuntarily experience all of the symptoms of selling a car they were not actually selling. Hence the syndrome within the syndrome. I am at stage 2 of 5 today, not yet having found a car that I "must have" and don't need ... but I'm working on it.

I thought I was in rehab but fell by the wayside last week when I fell for a particularly nice Porsche 944. Well, no point leaving the money in the bank!

There is a 1600 zagato mentioned on this site:

although I think David generally only sells with a view to him restoring the car...

    Thanks to all for your responses and counselling.

    Behind the scenes (and admittedly after wasting a lot of official time yesterday in the Google search for the Holy Zagato Grail - but I stayed late to make up for it) I have turned up quite a selection of things as follows:


  • 2 or 3 mint restored S2 Zagat0 1600s for premium prices in excess of 15k
  • at least 1 nice S1 Zagat0 for 10k to 15k
  • 1 very interesting and seemingly well preserved barn/garage find type Zagat0 1600 for about 8k (I would definitely be looking at this one if I was in that price zone)
  • Dav1d Ashw0rth Zagat0 1600 with restoration option mentioned by BrucieBonuz immediately above
  • 1 basket case S1 Zagat0 1300 for parts only at 1200 - this has been around on the web for years without moving or selling and I suspect there may be separation issues with the owner as much as with the car
  • 1 project Fulvia S2 coupe and 1 sporty HF replica thingy detailed to a high standard and with its own website - didn't get prices on these
  • 1 MOT'd Fulvia S1 coupe 3750
  • 3 2000 Sedans from 800 to 2k
  • Lancia 2000 berlina for scrap, Durham

And of course the one I am now chasing and which has been under our noses here for months ....

Hope I haven't left out anyone who was kind enough to respond with leads. Contact me if any of the above interests you and I can try to root out details (am I signing up for a lifetime of Zagato e-mails here? I better change all my o's to 0's)

Thanks Chugga - I took my eye off the 'Bay there for a few hours after the Zagato splurge on Sunday.

It would be a nice stablemate for my current F-word collection but will probably go beyond my reach.

Isn't it just amazing what is out there to be found - only a small proportion of it comes up randomly on eBay

Ocelot if my memory serves me correctly, all the rage once upon a time; are the door pull wrapped up to protect them? as there seems to be something tied around them.
I'd certainly like it but it's going to go for lots more than the current bidding, not sure about the two tone though.

Hello Brian, have you your winners' suit ordered?

The prices are probably the highly subjective opposite of what "Everything has been imported by Joop himself, which causes prices to remain low" suggests they may be

nice web find though ... says it only needs paint ... we should add it to the Zagat0 shopping list

This is my own pick of the crop - accessible, original/unmolested(?), de-badged, recently washed, orange, available...

Crikey 7500 seems a lot for a car in that condition (was it washed or was it just left out in the rain  ;) )

I wasn't sure about the two tone grey being to my taste, but once I saw the seat covers I forgave that.

Not a project car but if anyone is looking for a lovely Fulvia Coupe I was very surprised to see "Bob" up for sale for 4250 ono with 48k on the clock, on page 32 Classic Car Weekly Wednesday 13th July Edition.
It belongs to Garry & Louise Peck Cooper who live not far from Luton, Louise's brother works for a bodyshop and did the body and paint 2-3 years ago, it's appeared at the Ace Cafe before now and is a regular at Classics on the Common at Harpenden, just gob smacked that it's up for sale.
Here's some photos from Classic on the Commom 2009.

Richard Dixon bought a Fulvia from Stolze a few years ago, It looked great in the picture's as it had been restored. It was very nice but there was a lot if fiddly bits to sort out, the restoration was very good but the assembly wes hasty and window trims , door hanging, trim alignment ect had to be sorted.  :)

Post by: fay66 on 15 July, 2011, 10:56:12 PM
David I can assure anyone this isn't like that, I know the owners and the car very well, and if I was in the market it would already be sitting outside my home, I'm just surprised that it's for sale, and even more so how cheap it it is.

Anyone know the car? as it's in the 2000 Register of owners and their cars as belonging to a MR J.S.Bailey of Milden Ipswich.?

John Bailey owned EPJ ...J from new.   He died last month.   Although he advertised the car for sale over a number of years, it was not sold until May 2011 when it was purchased by Brian Cates, Bournemouth.

The earlier post about the San Siro Sport 1600 on offer in Norfolk for restoration has not yielded a result.   I have my suspicions as to the car's registration number, but have no chassis number to put into the "Zagato Register", and two polite attempts to get its identity have been completely ignored.

In the 'rust in peace' section of the latest edition of Practical Classics there is mention of a Flavia convertible in County Down that may be up for sale. Looks a bit crusty but apperantlt doors, bonnet and bootlid are safely put away

Very hard to tell from photo. All that can be seen is mainly rust coloured. Very small possibility of a bit of dark blue visible on front wing.

Fulvia Zagato 1.6 coming up for auction at Anglia Car auctions (on their website)


Title: Zagato 1600
Post by: libbyvic on 05 September, 2011, 07:34:17 PM
I am really going to regret this but am thinking of off loading my 1600 Zagato. I have two Zagatos already and enjoying driving the S2. But have an eye for another car and need to raise some money... Its a one family owner car with a stamped service book as well! It does need a body restoration but not as bad as you may think. Bottom 4 inches on doors and wings and outer sills. I have bought all the panels already from bill Lewis ready to fit.

Interior is original and lovely condition. I even have new black carpets to fit as well! All the new bits will have to be bought for what they cost me by the way!

Engine turns over as well....

If you fancy a look, I am in Market Harborough, Leicestershire.

Cheers,

Michael
