What a coincidence with Stan's comments about Aston Martin.
Earlier this week I was talking to a guy in the UK who is restoring a 1600HF and it is soon going to the paint shop. His car is currently painted metallic green which he describes as being from the BMW 2002 series and he is undecided as to which colour to have it resprayed. He likes the green but the car was originally white. Also his Dad had a 1600HF in Mendoza Blue. Decisions, decisions.

Stan's mention of Ferrari Giallo Fly yellow reminded me of my ex-works 1.3HF which was just that colour when I first saw it. Pye Records had been using it for publicity purposes and had had it sprayed thus. I talked the vendor into painting it Rosso Corsa as part of the deal. Not a bad deal at 750 including the re-paint eh?! Ah..... those were the days. Smiley

It was interesting on the Fulvia Knights Rally last year that the Dutch and Belgians went for subdued blues and greys. To the point where Rosso Corsa brought the reaction "Ah, the English colour!".

If I had a bare shell Fulvia I think that is one of my favourite combinations - the dark red with the Torino stripes and blue and yellow HF stickers. It's kind of subdued but a bit menacing at the same time. That's if I wanted to have some Lancia connection. If not, I reckon Aston Zagato metallic racing green would be very tempting. When mine was painted several years ago I went with the colour it already was, Rosso Corsa, as it wasn't a full spray and I didn't want to open the bonnet and see a different coloured engine bay. I must admit it must be hard to have a bare shell and thousands of beautiful colours to choose from. The great thing about Fulvias is that you can paint them grey, blue etc and they look elegant and you can drive them wearing a suit and tie, or you can go for reds, oranges etc and they look like rally cars. You'll have to decide what look you want and that will narrow it down to just a few thousand!. I would think Ferrari Giallo Fly yellow might look pretty good especially if you are having it bumperless etc.
I want the maroon in the last photo really , saw a 1.2or 1.3 HF in Turin in this colour, pretty sure it was a Dutch car and just fell in love with it, looked absolutely stunning, its not as brown as rosso York so if anyone can help with the colour name or paint code I'd be very grateful  Smiley

That would be a great choice I think. Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn't have gone with it and lived with a Rosso Corsa engine bay! Although I did discover when I was scraping old sound deadener off the rear floor that the original colour was a light metallic blue. I wouldn't think it will be difficult to find that code with the knowledge on this site - it seems to be the standard 1.3HF dark red I've seen on others, more often than not with the stripes. Not sure if it might be listed somewhere like Huib's Viva Lancia site? Good luck.

A couple more colour charts for HFs attached from 1970 and 1971.

The dark red used on some Flavia and Fulvia cars was Arcoveggio although only seems to appear on a Flavia Zagato colour chart from 1964 or thereabouts so may not have been a production colour for very long. Picture of Flavia Sport prototipo in what is believed to be Arcoveggio attached for info.

You could have bought it in 2012 for the bargain price of EUR 190,000....................................

Low geared, unrefined, terrible ground clearance, flat unsupportive seats - what's more the rear windows are nothing like weird enough.

I'm looking forward to seeing the ex-Mark Hoble racing car (before him Richard Thorne's rally car) out to play again after its time with Omicron.
