"If you want a beautifully-engineered classic car that is entirely practical for everyday use, fast enough to keep up with the modern traffic, economical to run, and not so complicated that maintenance becomes a nightmare -- think about a Fulvia. It is probably the most affordable piece of high-quality machinery that will meet all these requirements." I loved my Fulvia, and wrote about it in one of my novels. It broke down in all the best places. The head warped and I needed a new gasket every month: so did the Fulvia. Finally, I sold it at auction. It was brown with cream leather seats. It was rusting in the usual places. I was more patient with it than with anybody or everything. When it was sold, I saw it again for the last time, sitting under a street lamp, broken down again. I had to cross the street and say goodbye. It was silent and sullen as usual. It was a person, and had a soul. Myrna Combellack, email@example.com. Feb 2000 I live in Breda, which is in the south of the Netherlands, very close to the Belgian border. Since I started using a Fulvia Coupé as every day car in September 1995, the number of Fulvia's in Breda has gone up considerably.
The Racing 43 kit of the Lancia Fulvia represents the car driven to victory by Ballestrieri and Bernacchini in the 1972 San Remo Rally. The Fulvia, painted in new Marlboro sponsorship, finished ahead of the second-place Fulvia of Barbasio and Sodano by 3 m 42 secs. Lancia won the 1972 International Rally Championship for Makes with 97 points, 42 points ahead of second-place Fiat. The Fulvia was, however, to be overshadowed by the introduction of the Stratos in 1973. I have an affinity for small four cylinder Italian racing coupes and Racing 43's kit of the Fulvia fits the bill quite nicely. The kit is well cast in white metal and includes vacform windows, photoetch and nicely printed decals. Construction started with cleaning up the body. While nicely cast, it did have a small amount porosity on the hood and very large casting gates on the front and rear lower body. These were cleaned up with a coarse file and then finished off with mid and fine grain sanding sticks. The window openings were trimmed with a sharp scalpel blade. The body was then thoroughly washed and when dry, sprayed with three coats of Tamiya gray primer.
