1967 Lancia Fulvia Sport 818.330*001476 by Zagato as Competizione R
The smoothed old skin was cleaned from all paint and internal overspray and - after all needed repairs were done - mounted back over the painted substructure with isolation material between all contact surfaces. The body was then finished with as minimal surfacer used as possible.As the car was supposed to be used in hill climbs and on circuits, the rear tire cover was made out of aluminum too. To cover both the standard size 6J rims and the extra wide 8J rims the wheel arch extensions were made from aluminum sheet using the patern or privateer cars of the era. To minimize the overall weight the front screen is as standard with all other windows being cut out of polycarbonate. In the doors the sliding window patern of the Daytona car were used within a de-mountable frame.
In this form the car is listed under Prototype just like the one in 1969. As a reminder of these wins this car now has the race number lights on it’s doors and the double headlight set up at the front with the polycarbonate covers. Being a conversion of a RHD into LHD she only has one wiper covering the whole front screen.To make her go fast and safe the complete subframe was rebuild using undamaged powdercoated members. To them the negative camber and castor trailing arms of the 818.540 type are mounted. A flatter transversal front leave in combination with a new stiffer stabilizer rod and Spax shock absorbers improve the ride and road holding. In the rear flatter leaf springs sit on the aluminum rear axle, suported by an equally new stabilizer rod and Spax shocks. The steering column of the first series was replaced by the safety item of the 2nd series, connected to a shorter L <> R steering house. On the front hubs double caliper Girling brakes are mounted - with the standard Dunlop brakes used on the rear. All connected to the system with Goodyear flexible liners. The drivers seat is positioned closer to the center of the car, within easy reach of the extended gear lever and the one off drilled handbrake lever. No upholstery is used inside the car, no electric rear window engine is used for weight saving reasons.
In the rear of the car there is a big capacity aluminum fuel tank of appr. 80 liters that has it's filler opening on the left side of the body. The fuel is pushed to the engine by a Facet fuel pump mounted inside the car. Sofar the car has only been used for testing and fast outings on circuits.
In her engine bay now sits a highly tuned, newly build 818,302 engine with bore x stroke of 80 mm x 80 mm. This type of engine is used world wide in winning rally and race cars. On the engine there is a set of 40 mm Dellorto carbs giving appr 135 Hp / 204 Nm depending on the setting of the cams. With the car come two sets of exhaust systems: one as a sidepipe, the other as a full silencer Gr 4 running towards the rear. Both use the special made 4 into 1 spaghetti manifold.
The engine will be tested and set up on a rolling road with results sheet prior to delivery. The original 818.332 4 speed gearbox - with 11x39 end ratio - was rebuild with new synchros and seals. A 818.612 or 818.740 5 speed gearbox can be installed without any changes to the car.
With the car comes an extra set of 8J13 inch BWA alu rims, shot with used slicks. On the car now is a set of similar 8J rims shot with used Firestone 660 205/80.
This aluminum bodied car of the very first series
was exported by Lancia to Australia as a standard
road going car.
In Sydney she changed hands several times before being bought by mr Jeremy Hall who later exported her back to Great Britain where she received the license WLC 536 X. From that moment on the car had HSCC and HTP papers and was heavily used in international rallies like the Classic Marathon until she was bought by a collector looking for rear lenses only.
Without her lenses she was transported to marque specialist Vere Lancia in the Netherlands to be fully restored into a LHD racing car. During this process the whole skin was removed from the steel substructure that was then sandblasted to reveal the damage done by rust. A new correct floor and reinforced steel sills were inserted and all other structural members were repaired or replaced by new material. Certyfied roll over cage builders then bended a new Appendix K bolted cage that sits close to the inside curves of the body.
