Mike finds a rare, rally-bred 1972 Lancia Fulvia. He and Ant must fix its bad CV joints, a broken heater, cracked dash and a debris-clogged fuel system.
Work Completed: Driveshaft assembly rebuilt, gearbox oil seal and CV joints replaced to address oil leak around the gearbox, heater control valve replaced, plastic dashboard bezel replaced with custom wooden bezel, fuel tank repainted, fuel filter replaced, fuel line flushed, bumpers removed, period-correct Carello foglamps fitted, stock indicators retrofitted, parts of the front wings and scuttle resprayed to matte black, dash pad and trims replaced, steering wheel replaced, wheels refinished in satin gold.
Notes: Mike originally wanted to buy a Rover P6 3500, but backed off due to the car’s derelict condition. The Lancia was directly imported from Italy, equipped with 1.3L engine and four-wheel disc brakes. Sold to a broker.
