Hi All,

We recently acquired a 1966 Fulvia that has been off the road for the last 20 odd years.
We are currently carrying out the necessary cleaning of fuel tank, fuel lines, carbs etc to get him running again.

we aim to have him back on the road for Goodwood Revival next year so hope to meet some of you there.

Phil and Em

Looks very nice and original. Love the huge plain hub caps. Never realised the S1's had such flared wheel arches. Hope you get it running soon.

Hi Richard

Is there not one available in every bottle of French wine? Simon, anyone?

Brazing has been suggested as has cold stitching and chemical metal.
Being the block is cast iron cold stitching would probably be the best option, however prices quoted are quite high.

quite like the look of the clean alloy but had always planned the wrinkle finish.
