Here is another Zagato that the owner is stripping to start restoration (the car not the owner Roll Eyes) from Lancisti.net

Brian,

I am pleased to see this. Is this the guy who you are trying to get to join the LMC?

I am amused by photo 17, which shows “black velvet trim” – just like mine was and looks green to me! Other photos take me back to the horrors and how much time and energy it took.

Also interested to see it’s an S2 1300 and it has a 140 mph speedo. I had always thought that only 1600cc Fulvias had 140 mph units, but I could be wrong.

Hello Colin,
No, but his name is Jonathan Hopper, and he lives in East Anglia according to his lancisti.net profile, perhaps he's already a member? I've just picked up on what he posted on there, however the Sport is known to Roddy Young and is on his list of Fuvia Sport Zagato, the last entry being in 1995 when it belonged to S.M.Helm of Wimbledon, and a photo of it appears in The News Sheet Sept 1992 No.293 P17.
Previously from 1983-1985 it was owned by Mike V.S.Aram of South Moreton didcot, (Information courtesy Roddy Young)
Don't know where it's been in the meantime, but the Jonathan seems to think it's been through quite a few owners.
He's taking it back to the shell then intends having it soda blasted, which knowing how fragile the Zagato bodywork can be, sounds like a good idea.

Colin - I think you are right about the 120 / 140 MPH units as far as Veglia instruments are concerned.   However this car has a Jaeger cluster, which comes as a single-piece unit.   I will check a spare Jaeger unit I have 'on the shelf', and let you know.

Further to the above post, I have just checked a spare Jaeger instrument cluster - the speedo reads to 140MPH.   (I must admit I do not know the origins of the unit, but perhaps this answers the question anyway?)

Re speedo I have just got my S1.5 1.3 Coupe (S2 with various S1 ssuspension bits....) out for a run before MOT on thursday (all seems fine after the winter lay up touch wood), and my car has Jaeger instruments (1971) and the speedo is 140mph. Obviously these cars were faster!

Latest on this Zagato courtesy Lancisti.net with added photos Shocked

(http://picasaweb.google.com/jonathanhopper/NewProjectLanciaFulviaZagato?feat=directlink)

The subframe is off, and the corrosion in the rear outriggers is visible - and shocking, in that one could imagine the car could have been used in the past with that corrosion unseen...

No front inner wing cracking. Good.

This week the car is being braced inside, before the lower wings are cut open, and start the work to replace floor and sills..

Plan to get the main structural welding done and then get the paint/filler removed...

Jonathan

Photo stories like these are a fabulous antidote to EBAY.   Up the top its an afternoon with the t-cut and an entry for the Goodwood Trackday.  Down the bottom I'm remembering 20 years back how the gearlever used to wander about under load in a friends ropey SIII, and how a subframe leg let go on the Wrynose Pass one wet night and the repairs getting bigger and bigger in Whitehaven the following day.

My wife never stops reminding me of my (her) 1600 sport I bought on EBAY.....

Just a small project to tidy up.....

But not as far gone as the Zagato above as it had been restored twice before (as i discovered after buying...)

Nice now though....
