10k: What’s The Reserve? 1967 Lancia Fulvia Rallye Coupe

The inconvenient truth when buying a used car is that the advertisements with good pictures, thorough descriptions, and responsive sellers are also the highest priced cars.  Those sellers understand that putting in some extra time will result in more interest and typically want more for the car.  On the other end of the spectrum are folks who value their time over money and will post a few (or no) photos and just settle for whatever they can get for the car.  Personally, I’d love to pickup a classic Italian classic from one of the second type of seller, and this next one looks about perfect.  Find this 1967 Lancia Fulvia Rallye Coupe here on eBay currently bidding for $9,500 reserve-not-met with 1 day to go, located in Southampton, NY.

For those not in the know, the Lancia Fulvia Tipo 818 is a classic Italian saloon available from 1964-1976 as a Berlina, Coupe, and Sport.  This one is a Coupe, and offers 2+2 seating and styling by Piero Castagnero of Centro Stile Lancia.  It might look like any other classic front engined 60’s coupe, but under that sheet metal the Fulvia is very unique in its greasy bits. 

A longitudinal V4 engine is mounted up front (canted over at 45 degrees) and connected via a transaxle to the front wheels.  The 1.3 liter narrow 13 degree V4 uses two
overhead camshafts (one for exhaust valves, one for intake) and a single
head (similar to Volkswagen’s H2O cooled VR6 setup) to produce 87 horsepower.
