    New Lancia owner - 1973 Fulvia 1.3S coupe

    Hi everyone!
    My name is Dan Mooney. I am very pleased to have recently bought this very nice 1973 Fulvia 1.3S coupe - my first ever Lancia!

    Purchased the car on BaT from Adan at La Lancia who is currently doing a few upgrades for me prior to shipping it to me in Austin, TX.

    Work currently underway includes a minor paintwork repair, installing a lightweight flywheel and new clutch, new Carbon shocks and a new dash. I am looking for an original steering wheel and horn push in excellent condition, if anyone knows of one for sale?

    Cheers!

    Hi Dan,

    Congratulations on the purchase and welcome to the forum!

    S1 steering wheels have gotten pricey, but it should be possible to find an S2. But because the S2 is wood-grained plastic, it can be hard to find one that doesn't need some restoration.

    Hi Ed,
    Does that mean the S1 wheel is a better option for my S2 car? Does it look the same as the S2 wheel other than being made with real wood?

    Cheers!

    Adan just told me the S1 Fulvia wheel doesn't fit the S2, so I guess the search is back on for an excellent condition S2 wheel.

    Cheers!

    An S1 wheel isn't really an option, but Adan should be able to find you an S2

    Dan,
    congratulations! Looks beautiful.
    Interesting priorities you have - is the current steering wheel an original Ferrero as used in the Fulvia Montecarlo, or just something very similar? I can't quite tell from the photo.
    To my personal taste, it suits the car very well. I'd rather get rid of those too-long seat belt buckles .
    Enjoy your new Fulvia!

    Thanks Bernt!

    The gigantic seat belt receptors are indeed on the 'to do list' and scheduled for elimination! Don't know about the steering wheel being an original Ferrero as I won't see the car for about 3 weeks due to Adan's upcoming trip to Italy.

    Cheers!

    Congrats Dan! You beat me in the bidding on that one. I thought it was a beautiful car. Enjoy it and drive safely! I’m hoping Aden finds me a similar car in his trip to Italy in the coming weeks.

    Hi Bernt,

    Just heard from Adan that the steering wheel currently installed is indeed a Ferrero from a Fulvia Montecarlo. That being the case, I am now thinking I may just keep it. I don't think it looks too out of place.

    Cheers!
    Dan
