    Hello from The Netherlands, I am now the proud owner of a Fulvia Coupé - 1968

    Hello Lancisti, Here I am again. I now actually have the Fulvia Coupé.

    Picked up the Fulvia.

    This is my first classic car so I have to learn how to drive such a 50 year old car. It became really hot in the car although we had the windows open and the sun was burning through the not so tinted windows.
    The gearbox was really tricky to operate if you compare it to the modern gearboxes obviously.
    The gears vertical H lines are close to each other and I had guide the stick in a nice straight line into the gears...
    Gently leading the gearstick into the gears. And I have to press the clutch pedal firmly to the ground to proper change gears.

    Oil pressure and coolant temperature were excellent in the hot weather. As far as I know coolant was just above 70°C and oil pressure at 4000rpm at 4.8, idle just above 0. But that is also no surprise because the Coupé was almost fully restored in Italy with new and old components. Basis was a rust 'free' and accident free Fulvia. (I far as I can see and advertised)

    Congrats! Your Fulvia looks delightful. I live in the upper (flat) part of the Netherlands.
    Can we see your Lancia at the Concours d' Elegance in Apeldoorn June 30?
