Lancia 1963


Appia - discontiniued
Fulvia - Geneva (March)

The first Flavia engine of 1500 cc with 78 hp was soon joined by larger unit of 1800 cc, 92 hp. 1.5 was redesigned to give more torque. 1.8 litre in sports models have double carburators.

The new Fulvia was indroduced in March at the Geneva Motor Show.

Lancias, otherwise unchanged apart from the larger engines recently introduced for the Flavia and Flaminia, are shown in new colours including a bright green called Verde Ascot and a rather basic blue that looks less well on the big Flaminias, in particular, than their sober traditional hues. The only real mechanical novelty is found in a new small front-drive commercial vehicle based on the 1.5-litre Flavia. It has disc brakes for all four wheels, each front disc having two callipers fed by independent circuits. Lancia car prices have recently been increased by amounts upwards from about £50 on the Fulvia, which inevitably become accentuated in their export markets. Yet the price of the Fulvia's chief rival, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI saloon, has just been lowered by almost £60.

Fulvia V4 cyl., 12°53'28", 1091 cc, 58 bhp – new model (March)
 Berlina wb: 2480 mm


The new Fulvia was indroduced in March at the Geneva Motor Show. The new saloon was designed by Antonio Fessia, to replace the Lancia Appia with which it share almost no components. The Appia was a rear wheel drive, while the Fulvia moved to front wheel drive like the Flavia. The general engineering design of the Fulvia is identical to that of the Flavia with the major exception of the engine, the Flavia having a four cylinder horizontally opposed engine and the Fulvia a 'Narrow Angle' vee configuration as featured on most production Lancias from the Lambda. The Fulvia used a longitudinal engine mounted in front of its transaxle tilted to the left by 45 degrees. An independent suspension in front use wishbones and a single leaf spring, while a solid axle with a panhard rod and leaf springs is used in back. Four wheel Dunlop disc brakes are fitted.
