I found in the Technical information section being collated by David Wheeler the attached list of Fulvia Series 1 colours, and there it is...Avorio Chantilly and it is a colour for all or any Series 1 Fulvia so not just a GTE colour.

I hesitate to add confusion, but looking at the side by side photographs of your cars I wonder if the darker is not painted in Beige Mirabello, which I have read somewhere as being available on series 1 cars, perhaps only late ones. I know it is not on the list above, but dare I suggest that it may be as good a match as the avorio colour, and a little less recherchť.

At least your car is already painted, so you are not having to make a commitment!

Hi Cesare itís a good suggestion you make, visually it could be, but the reference material I have says that Biege Mirabello is a 1971 colour so too late for a series 1 car.

Hi Brian,
I found this for Grigio Doncaster on a colour sample chart. It looks very black....must be the soot that covered Doncaster in 1966 when the colour was introduced...just a joke...Fay looks very nice. What is the interior?
Cheers Tom

Guys a bit of an update on my plans for the Bianco Saratoga car.

As I have said before the carís seat covering is very badly affected by the sun....not a problem itís likely to experience in the East Neuk of Fife. See the sad pictures. After a lot of thought (including the notion to reupholster in fine duck blue leather) I decided I wanted to put the seats back to close to original.
The reverse side of the cloth and the door trim inserts show the true colour as a very bright (Royal) blue.
....more to follow to avoid photos limit.

The set of seats out of the car were of a Flavia coupe sold by Classic Lancia in The Netherlands to a Franchise lady.... supposedly for Ä50,000 and the seats were recovered by a coach trimmers located near Utrecht. I did try to find out where the cloth came from but no joy.
However eBay came up trumps as I found some very good 80% Melton wool cloth in just the right colour or near as makes no difference for a very reasonable cost.

After doing a search or two on the forum on colours of my cars Iíve just cottoned on the the racecourse name connection that Brian and others had identified and discussed. Saratoga racecourse indeed, as in the Carly Simon song..I hear you went up to Saratoga and your horse naturally won...

Fay's interior is red vinyl, as far as I'm aware cloth interior never came here, but as there's only ever been 3 original series 1 Berlinas, and they all have vinyl interiors, it seems a fair bet,that was all that was available here.
I shall have to dig it out and have a look at the condition and for which door, but I have a spare door trim panel complete in your colour you can have, it came off my donor car which was a Normale in 1997, and the only one worth saving
The blue cloth looks magnificent.

Brian thatís great and Iíll gladly accept the door trim. Let me know when you have dug it out.

Do you mean three models of Series 1 Berlinas in the UK or 3 actual cars...no surely 3 models right...

That cloth was only £15/m which I thought was a bargain.

Tom, I'll get it out and send you a photo.
Since I found Fay in 1997and I've only ever known two other UK Rhd series 1 2c Berlinas.
One, the oldest one belonged to Robin Lacey and was registered in 1965.
Fay was Registered 1st January 1966, but as far as I can tell was built about May 1965, she had one previous owner, and off the road for 21 years.
The 3rd when I first saw it was owned by Michael Newberry, and was a 1967 car OPD 37E, this gained a measure of fame a few owners down the road when Peter Baker took part in the Historique Monte Carlo.
Both changing hands a few times they are now in the Irish Republic, owned by Alan Murphy, both have previously had changes, and are no longer 2c specification, and have been fitted with 1300cc engines.
Alan intends restoring OPD 37E, and much work has been carried out, while CTM is used frequently abroad, having travelled as far as Greece.
They also carry new Irish Registration Numbers.
So my Fay is the only UK RHD 2c, and I think the oldest RHD UK Fulvia., and the only 2c to original specification.
I believe there is a RHD GT? In THE UK, although I don't think it was originally UK registered..
Australia appears to have the greatest number of RHD Fulvia series 1 Berlinas.

Hi Brian and all,
Incredible really that these Berlinas are so rare in the UK.
Brian have you ever looked on the following website?

https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/?utf8=✓&q=Lancia+fulvia&commit=Search

It purports to list all the Uk registered examples of any given model.

Itís not completely accurate I think but at the moment it has listed for  Fulvia Berlinas
2C. 2 licenced and 1 SORNed
GT   1 licenced
GTE. 1 licenced
Berlinas 5...4 licenced and 1 SORNed ...itís not clear if this might include those above, I think not but itís probably a mixture of 2 Series two cars and three others which are not specified by model but are all licenced and two are 1969 and one is 1968.

btw those figures represent as of Q3 2019.

My cars arenít yet UK registered so not on there and I think Vinceís GTE not on there either as there was one GTE listed for the years before his car was imported to the UK. I know that one of the guys that works for Omocron, Jules, has a GTE so itís prob that.
And no info there regarding RHD/LHD.

Cheers

Tom

This is only a rough guide as DVLA back in the day just recorded what the dealer told them on the paperwork sometimes it was so generic.... Coupes are worst, but I have seen Sports listed as coupes and visa versa.

I think it is high time someone did the (relatively) easy task of curating a register of Berlinas, and possibly Coupes, like Roddy Young does for Sports (he took over the fine work of Peter Pompeii when Peter sadly passed away).
