Market Watch: Lancia Fulvia HF picks up the pace

The Lancia Fulvia HF is in the top ten climbers in the Classic Cars July issue’s monthly roundup of Price Guide winners and losers.

Prices have leapt an astonishing 47% since our last update, bringing rough examples up to £11.5k and good, usable cars to £17.5k. For the best you can now expect to pay £35-50k, depending on levels of perfection.

The HF is the pinnacle of the Fulvia Coupé range, with uprated suspension, more power, alloy panels and no bumpers, so it’s inevitable that growth would start with these cars. We’ve yet to see the lesser models benefit form this renewed interest, an effect that usually begins when the halo model becomes prohibitively expensive, and we’re not there yet.

Although these results are consistent with this year’s trend for most of the value growth occurring in sub-£50k models, this month’s top ten includes three cars in the over £250k band. The market is certainly too nuanced for any overall trend to be established.
