The 1962 Lancia Fulvia has become an unofficial landmark in the town of Conegliano in northern Italy.
A light blue sedan in 1974 was left on the street by the spouses Angelo Fregolent and Bertilla Modolo. Fregolent at that time owned a newsstand and initially used the car to deliver the press, and when he parked it, he turned it into a temporary warehouse. After the shop was closed, the sedan remained standing partly on the sidewalk, partly on the road.
Recently, an old Lancia with faded paint began to interfere with some of the local residents, and anonymous insulting notes began to be left to its retired owners. The only solution was to send the rarity to the landfill, if the president of the local club of classic cars had not found out about this story. He suggested that the car be restored and then displayed in the garden of the Institute of Oenology in Conegliano – not far from the former parking lot and the house of the Fregolent family.
“It couldn’t have been better,” Angelo Fregolent told reporters.
Lancia Fulvia is currently on display at the Auto e Moto d’Epoca classic car show in Padua (October 21-22).
