Title: Fulvia S1 Rallye S Coupe 1969 - Sold & Collected!
Post by: davidhowson on 26 August, 2009, 02:29:51 PM
Fulvia S1 Rallye S Coupe 1969 - Competition prepared but requires finishing.

This is probably more of a "gauging interest" type of post rather than a full "for sale" because as much as I want to get this car finished and racing, I'm just not getting the time to devote to it. I'm sure that I am not the only one around here to have more than one project on the go! But the longer it sits in my garage, the more chance it's going to need work doing again and more chance it will get damaged.

What do you think - Sell it, or keep it another 13 years? Are you interested?? If you'd like to know more, then email or message me, I can always give you a call or send pictures.

I know I'm not going to get anywhere near the money I have spent on it, but as a true Lancia fanatic, it's not about the money, it about keeping these wonderful cars going. Rest assured, the sale proceeds will be quickly re-invested in more Italian magic - only one that's finished!!

I have owned the car since 1996 and in that time it has been transformed from a rusty "should have been scrapped" car into a gorgeous bright yellow racer! It was clear very early on that this was never going to be a concours restoration so it has been prepared with hill climbs and sprints in mind. Although I'm sure it wouldn't take much adjustment to meet the rally regs too.

Car is registered and is intended to run in road legal class. It is also tax exempt.

This is about where I am with it but I'm sure there's loads more:

Pictures now at: (

Full nut and bolt restoration and preparation for competition or road use and about 85% reassembled.

All prepared to meet FIA / MSA safety standards with mainly OMP branded parts.

I have a huge folder of receipts to prove that no expense has been spared in getting the car to this stage. Receipts must total at least £15k mainly Omicron and Demon Tweeks supplied parts.

I live in North Shropshire, just a few miles away from where this year's AGM was held.
The post code is XXXXXX

As to price, I know I will never recover anywhere near to the amount I've spent on it, who does? But as to how long that peice of string is, well I'm open to offers particularly from an enthusiast who will appreciate it!

Pictures will be posted on the web over the weekend and I will put up a link here when I have done so.

Thank you for your reply Piers - excellent pictures BTW.

Thank you for those kind comments Brian.

I have been sorting through the invoice file and have so far come to £10,500 in parts!!
Such as Omicron invoices for:
New starter motor £237.35; Subframe mounts £101.77;Competition exhaust & oil separator &steering wheel boss £918.55; Cibe headlamps x4, door handles , intake grille, clutch cable £316.96; 2 x floor panel £101.64 each; timing chain & tensioner & 2000 front anti roll bar £159.72; Hub tools £98.29; Door seals £320.10; 106 HF steering box with track rods and painted £489.51; Ball joints £281.25;Clutch, bearing gearbox seals £328.00; Badges reflectors bonnet seals £195.06.
And Demon Tweeks:
Racetech gauges £165.97; OMP 4 PT Harnesses £205.70; OMP FIA Steel Cage and diagonal and door bars £300.09; Koni shocks x4 £448.21; Plumb in fire system £98.10
In addition there are many, many more invoices under £100.
I can't seem to locate the invoices for all the wing repair panels (each wing was done both front and back of the wheel arch, the inner and outer sills, the front valance (came from Canada!) or the roof insert to weld up the sunroof or the new slam panel. Let alone the labour charges for welding and painting - this was all done by GR Motorsport who prepared cars for the BTCC in the 1990's and now work with Seat and with teams based in the far east.

So my estimate of £15k probably isn't that far off!

I also have quite a comprehensive set of photos of the before, during and after.

I know I should really! I have had some interest and I'm going to see where that leads me.
If I sell, it will be as a complete car (all be it in some bits) but I may have some "left overs"....where you looking for anything in particular?
