We are huge fans of these rare Lancia Coupe's from the Seventies, and this is one of the end of the Flavia lineage, it is a 1973 Lancia 2000HF Coupe, UK Supplied, Factory Right hand Drive, finished in Dark Red with Beige Cloth Interior. It has only had one owner from new until sold for the first time last year.
The Lancia 2000 and 2000 HF Coupé were an evolution of the Series II Flavia Coupé. The car's bodyshell and interior was designed and made by Pininfarina. The cosmetic changes to the 2000 Coupé were largely confined to a new grille, matt black instead of chrome, with headlamps incorporated into the now wider intake. New bumpers, with rubber strips on the HF, and the tail was shorn of its vestigial tailfins, with a raised and squared decklid.The powerplant was adopted from the 2000 sedan and available in two states of tune: carburetted on the 2000 Coupé, Bosch electronic fuel injection and engine management on the 2000 HF.
The HF was recognizable by the body-side rub-strip, wooden Nardi steering wheel and magnesium alloy wheels by Cromodora. Both versions had a five speed manual transmission with a dog-leg gearbox arrangement. The 2000 and 2000HF Coupé are considered to be some of the last true Lancia cars, designed before Fiat took control of the company in 1969.
Our car has benefitted from a full restoration completed in the last five years. All the bodywork was repaired and repainted, mechanicals fully restored and a new interior fitted. A labour of love for the previous owner, he owned one for his first car and has now enjoyed reliving his youth and passed it on at a fraction of what it cost him to restore the car. The car drives superbly and will comfortably cruise along at modern motorway speeds.
Supplied with a V5C registration document, it also comes with its original service history book and service history file through until 1996, (when the car was taken off the road before the restoration began). Handbooks, and a photographic record of the restoration is included. The car also has a current MoT test certificate valid until April 2020. The history file is very nice indeed.
These HF Flavia’s are incredibly rare cars with, perhaps, only three left in the UK currently MoT’d. They hardly ever come up for sale and to find one, especially in this condition, is no mean feat, please be quick at this price as you will not find another one. The Earlier Flavia Coupes are routinely changing hands for £30k now, so these later ones will be the next to go.
