Fulvia Berlina 2C


« Reply #30 on: 31 January, 2017, 02:12:07 PM »

Strangely enough I went to have a look at the Fulvia Berlina in Writtle, Chelmsford on Sunday only to be told it had been sold the previous weekend! Looked very nice and had had it on the radar for a while. A good lesson that if you snooze you lose!!
Hope you enjoy the Fulvia and hope to see it sometime.

Hi, thanks!

Yeah I hadn't initially gone to see the Lancia, although had seen it on their list. I had gone to see the Trumpet Herald they have. But upon inspection of the Herald, decided I couldn't since it would've probably cost the difference to get the Herald somewhere near the condition of the Fulvia (and still short of).

There are a couple of nice S1 Fulvia Berlinas' on car and classic at the mo, albeit lefties in Italy. One a lovely looking 2C in green, and a 1968 GT......

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Looking forward to getting stuck into ownership!

Brian, I will be tapping you up for advice if the offer still stands?

Viva Lancia!
Hi Neil,
Pleased to hear you are the new proud owner of your 2c, that now makes two of us in the UK, one RHD one LHD, and they look like peas in a pod when when together, although they have different interior and exterior colours, and they are so lovely to drive Grin
Yes, I'll be pleased to help if ever I can, just send me a pm or an email.
It was a very cold day when the tacho screeched, and boy did it make me jump as well!
If you want to meet up when the weather turns a bit warmer, I'm only a couple of hours from Omicron.

Thanks Brian, will bear that in mind.

Would absolutely be up for a meeting during warmer weather. I will be going to Snetterton at least a couple of times this year to catch some classic and historic race series. No doubt a few others too!

With regards to its original, but unservicable radio.

Does anyone have any experience of recomissioning, or getting an original radio recomissioned/repaired? Is it cost effective? Is it doable? Or am I better off swapping it out for a retro modern unit?

Call me old fashioned but is there anything better than driving along listening to for example a good Fulvia engine without the distraction of a radio?

Unfortunately, my wife isnt a diehard petrolhead and doesn't appreciate engine tone like what we do. Also, it would be nice to have a servicable unit in there.

Hi Neil
Give this company a call:  Vintage Car Radio. Tel. 0118 9864346 or 07855 547426.  They repair all vintage radios and will convert to FM and install an i/pod lead if you wish to play your MP3 tunes through the radio. He can tell you what type of radio your car ought to have for the year. He did a great job on my customer`s 1953 Mercedes Becker unit, and installed an i/pod lead.

Thanks John,

I have sent them an email, so let's see what they can do!

Really want to have a summer drive whilst listening to Matt Monro - Days Like These.

I know, sad, but we all have to have dreams!

It shouldn't be too hard to find a working period radio. I have seen the Vintage Radio Co at the NEC. They will rework your radio or sell you one ready converted off the shelf however their prices caused me to pause.

Up to a point old radios aren't that complicated so I would encourage you to investigate the obvious like is it receiving power?, is an internal fuse blown?, does squirting it through with electrical cleaner help?

Open question to anyone who can help with input. The little LHD 2c is in a garage getting a few things worked through. I asked the chap if he could tighten up the loose/sloppy gears. He seems to think simply adjusting them won't do, he said about getting new bushes.

Can anyone give any technical pointers of anything to looking for, or recommend? I'm sure he has spoken to Omicron for techy know how, but I am sure there is just as much knowledge here too!
