Nice to hear it is our car. I spoke to my dad last night and he confirmed the car was sold to someone close to Cologne but Aachen is close enough.

Thanks Ed for your correction.

I have it on the road now. The documents say that the color is Giada Bettole, which seems not to be an original Zagato color.

The purchase was intended as "plug and play" and the test drive did not show mayor problems. But when I drove the first 100 km the engine stalled and was only running on high revs, second gear sometimes popping out when going downhill without load and the car loosing a lot of fuel when parked in the garage.

It seemed as if my test drive had been made with a different car.

Today I dismantled the carbs, put them in the ultrasonic cleaning, remounted them and did a basic adjustment. Tightend the ring nut of the filler neck, which had gone loose.

The car started within a second, had all four working right away and responded to the pedal as I expect it from a Fulvia. Immediately went for a ride up and down the hills.

All problems are gone, even the gear pop out did not appear again. (Maybe it was due to the extremely shaking drivetrain, will keep an eye on that)

Installed a hidden exterior socket to connect the battery charger without having to open the hood every time.

It is a fantastic car.

Thanks to all of you sharing your opinions, thoughts and advice!!!!

that's a terrific looking car Hubert,
glad you have it sorted now. i like the idea of the external battery charger hook up. i wish i would have thought of that! i would do something like that but my battery disconnect is under the hood so i have to raise it anyway. guess it doesn't hurt to take a peek at things now and then as well...
best regards,
brian

Beautiful garage setting pics. I did not have a need for a battery charger until I replaced the inoperative electric clock (S2 coupe). The clock now drains the battery enough to necessitate either the charger or more frequent drives.
