firstly appologies to david laver, the pickup has gone up to the parents house for a short "holiday" whilst i get my fulvia finished , sorry david i know how against this you are  Grin ,anyway, i saw this car approx 5yrs ago advertised in practical classics as spares or repair, followed it up with a view to buy as spares for my s3 that i had at the time, spoke to a very nice gentle man who told me about the car, after a lengthy conversation i discovered that this car was 1 titled lady owner from new  Shocked it had been waxoiled from new and due to the lady moving in with her son "the man on the other end of the phone" the car had to go, i asked all the usual questions about rot and rust and apparently the car didnt really have any, arches were supposed to be perfect and origional etc however the car hadn't run for over 20yrs as it had been laid up in the garage, a deal was done and i set off for oxford with my dad and discovery, we finally arrived at this house,  , as we went up the drive i could see the rear end of the fulvia poking out of their garage........ RESULT Grin . after a quick walk around the car and after picking my jaw back up off the floor because of its condition we loaded it onto the trailer and brought it home, i remember stopping in services and myself and dad just standing looking at it in pure disbelief of how solid this car was, when home i dismantled the car and stipped back to bare steel and no rot anywhere!!! just good old solid steel, i re painted the car in its origional colour and started to rebuild it the disaster strook, unfortunatly the paint suffered with micro blisters over the bonnet roof bootlid and tops of the wings i was absolutly gutted  Cry because of this i spat my dummy and the car has been laid up for another 3yrs whilst i calmed down, anyway as a little break from the ardea i felt it was time to put things right and finish it off, i've just rebuilt all the brakes again and started to dismantle and re-bare metal the car again, i'm hoping to have it finished within the next 2 months then back onto the ardea again, i'll keep you all posted on its progress

Hi James,
It looks great, There's a saying that it's better to be born lucky than rich, I reckon you've got a special compartment in you Brain that programmed to sniff out Lancia's Cheesy
I had the same problem with my Series 1-1.3 Rallye Coupe with micro blistering in the paint, Don Cross said at the time that he had experienced the same problem, which was a reaction to the original Lancia paint, even though it had been rubbed back, and sealed before re-painting, most disheartening.

brian to me this car was "find of the decade!!" i was very lucky to find it and have no intension of selling it as i doubt i'll find another like it, the micro blistering i thing was caused by moisture in the airline whilst painting, i've since bought a hpc air dryer which is like an inline freezer that condenses any moisture in the airline and spits it out, fingers crossed it'll be ok this time  Wink

Have you a daylight photo to show the colour off better?  Its looks like there's a bit of bronze in with the chocolate.  Either way a great colour on a Fulvia...

To my eye the one spoiler is the wheels looking oversize and "boy racer".   While I always want the red one with all the go-faster bits for myself I want everyone else to have 100pct standard spec in period colours.  Its like asking for more public transport to get everyone else off the roads.

As for the "pickup vs Fulvia" argument I trust you to get this one "in and out"  Grin

whilst doing warby's head and helping him with his doors, repairing the augusta back axle, doing my friends wedding in the gussey and picking up various other things i've also done a bit more to the fulvia, i've bare metaled the affected areas and started prepping for paint, hopefully within the next few weeks it will be into prima then paint

a bit more done this weekend, finished the filler work and got the top half into prima, i put a fan heater inside with the rear seats removed and another underneath the car to warm up all the panels and dry out any moisture that may be lurking in the filler, hopefully this week after a little more baking i'll be able to flat the car off, remove the screens and get some colour on, the pickup will be on hold for a little while longer as my dad is about to start his next project and it needs bare metaling (my job) so i'll be doing that next then finishing the fulvia and back on the pickup  Roll Eyes

Well after a 35yr wait, my mum seems to be getting her own way and he is doing an aprilia next, my dad bought his aprilia before the astura however the astura project took over then the house move , then the augusta and all my projects kept him away from it, in the meen time we've bought another 2!!! so it makes sence having 3 aprilias to get 1 of them on the road

Good news although my money was on the B20.

Having seen the 3 Aprilia's I'm lost in admiration.Shocked  but don't doubt that it will gat done and to the usual Parry high standard. Hope this doesn't herald the closing down of the Dilambda Help Line! Shocked  I might just have to dispose of Modestine!  Cry
