  1. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    The Subaru Fulvia is awesome! Before deciding to go with theFulvia, I was semi-seriously considering a ~70’s Japanese classic such as aCorona, Crown or Celica and swap in a modern engine. Chickened...
  2. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Thanks all for the starting and electric pump tips. Unless I can improve cold starting with some tweaks, I’ll look into a pump for starting only. Finally throwing up a picture… Need to go get some...
  3. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Understood! Will play with the choke. It seems an electric pump is a standard mod. I guess the mechanical pump is unreliable? I'm trying to avoid mods as much as possible, but would also like to try...
  4. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Hey all! I've taken delivery of her and she’s a gorgeous blast to drive. Some little issues, but nothing serious. One thing that bothers me most off the bat is that I can’t get her started on the...

    Re: New member - Southern California

    Welcome! I'm from San Diego and hope to bring my Lancia back with me in a few years, so nice to see more SoCal enthusiasts. I'm always attracted to cars that are a little different and perhaps...
  7. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Thank you and others for all the advice and info! Yes, not too extreme either way. May get dustings of snow in Winter, Summers can hover in the 90's but with crazy high humidity (I'm from Arizona,...
  8. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Ok! Good to know, will check it out. Thanks!
  9. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    I'm not sure if Fulvia's were ever officially sold here... The one I'm looking at was just shipped over from Italy, LHD.

    Re: Lancia Fulvia Electric

    I have had this exact same thought for a classic car. Good luck!
  11. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Thanks again for all the advice. One more ‘daily driver’ concern: it can be around freezing in the morning in winter here. Is getting the car going when it’s that cold an issue? Thanks!
  12. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    This is very helpful, thank you! I like to try stick to the rules but what a pain in the butt.
  13. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    On the bright side, my registration fees and road taxes are cheaper (which is likely the main driver for limiting me). Agree with a no-nonsense manual, always more enjoyable!

    I see you've...
  14. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Even just a parking space can be hard to come by here... An actual garage is very rare, in the Tokyo area at least. I do have a covered parking space, but yeah it's going to get wet. I will...
  15. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Thank you! Good point about the cooling, will check it carefully. Saw your restoration project thread, inspiring for sure!
  16. Re: Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Thanks for the encouraging response!

    To clarify the limit, I'm living/working in Japan temporarily under a special visa agreement, so that's what limits me. Japanese citizens and permanent...

    Understood, thank you for the quick reply!
  18. Hello from a soon to be 1970 Fulvia 1.3 S2 Owner - Daily Driver?!?

    Hello all! Glad to see such a nice community! So I've been strangely attracted to Lancia’s ever since I was a little kid and saw Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo… I've got an opportunity to buy a very good...
