Updated Coupé introduced for 1974, mechanically is the same as the earlier Series 2 1.3 S except for the addition of emission control on the Solex carburettors. Other than for "Fulvia 3" badges, it differs by its matte black grille. It features new design of seats incorporating headrests and new white faced instrument dials with an updated range of trim colours, materials and options. Same updates for the Montecarlo.
Safari is a limited edition based on the standard Coupé 3 with simplified trim and equipment, celebrating the Fulvia's participation to the Safari Rally. It came without bumpers, with matte black exterior trim, seats upholstered in denim cloth and leatherette, exterior badges on the bonnet and on the boot lid and also special numbered plaque on the dashboard.
LANCIA BETA From £1,594
First new product from the old-established Italian manufacturer since being absorbed by Fiat, is the front-drive Beta range. All models use the four-door unitary saloon body but there is a choice of three twin over-head camshaft engines from 1438 to 1756 c.c. Designated 1400, 1600, and 1800, all three motors are derived from the well-proven four cylinder Fiat units with cog-belt-driven camshafts. The inclined engines are mounted transversely and drive the front wheels through five-speed gearboxes. Internal trim is luxurious and suspension is all-independent.
