1969 Lancia Fulvia HF Fanalone

Most references politely say that Fanalone means "large lights," but Italian friends have told me that it's actually slang for "big breasts"





During the 1960s, the wonderfully nimble, front-wheel-drive Lancia Fulvia reigned consistently among the highest echelon of international rally contenders. Campaigned by the Lancia factory team in 1966, they achieved second place finishes in the Monte Carlo and Three Cities rallies, won the Team Prize in the Rallye dei Fiore, and even scored circuit-racing class wins at both the Targa Florio and the Nurburgring.
