    @YOUSUF22: They used mahogany and that is wat Lancia used on the first series. And very lightly lacquered so the grain can still be felt and the finish is egg shell.

    Cheers,
    William

    Actually the finish on the original I found was a thick, smooth finish that could be peeled off the wood (mahogany) veneer nearly in one piece.

    The finish on my (supposedly) original one is a pretty thick coat of clear laqcuer, as Ed describes.

    Maybe a half decent car but certainly not original, seats look re-trimmed (look at the piping) badges in wrong place on rear panel sill trims missing (but no holes so possibly had new sills) must have had a full respray at some time. Black crackle cam cover ? S2 normally plain alloy.
    I think the sale was on behalf of artistic licence

    @Ed,

    I have seen many original (non restored ) cars in the early 90's during my stay in Italy, when Fulvia' were becoming classics but were not yet collectible, and most of them had thin coated mahogany dashes with a egg shell finish and a grain which could be felt.
    I also know many people found that finish cheap and brushed thick coat of lacquer over it. Same went for Lotus were many Elans had their wooden dash replaced by high glos walnut.

    Cheers,
    William

    In the end it is not so important as long as you like to look at it while driving

    Re: Fulvia on Wheeler Dealers

    I think you are correct William. I have a friend with a very original low miles first series 1.6 HF fanalone he just picked up, stunning car. It has a thinly finished veneer with texture and grain almost like danish oil. Makes me feel I went a bit overboard with my montecarlo dash. Nothing age won’t cure.
