Last Call: Change of Corsa Edition

lancia_flavia_sport_corsa_10
The 1964 Lancia Flavia Sport prototipo Zagato may not be the world’s most beautiful automobile but it certainly is in the running for the car with the fullest wheel wells, so generously do the Campagnolo wheels and tall section tire fill its arches. Also filled are the two akwardly-added humps on the hood, only in this case to cover a quartet of velocity stacks for the  148-bhp 1848-cc flat four engine.
Here’s a fun trivia question to send us into the weekend, what limited production English sports racer shared the same tail lights as the Falvia Sport Zagato?
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day.  It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Is this Last Call or Hooniverse Asks? You wanna know “what limited production English sports racer shared the same tail lights as the Falvia Sport Zagato?” There’s no such thing as a Falvia Sport Zagato. Trick question.
    Now, if you want to get into Flavias and Flaminias and Floridas… it’s a world of tail lights.

      And isn’t it neat how the Zagato trademark isn’t just a double bubble roof, but also an opening rear window for ventilation?
      And note the spelling of ‘Flavia’ in Zagato’s favoured script.

      I read it at first that someone had changed it to “Failvia”…

      Not actually a GAZ, but closely related. It’s an ErAZ 762, which is an Armenian license-produced version of the Latvian RAF-977, which is a van and minibus (It even came in a ‘tourist” version with a sunroof and 21-window Microbus-style roof windows for the Soviet “Intourist” travel program) based on the mechanicals of the GAZ-M21 Volga.

        Fantastic! 5 hours to solve the strangest of mysteries.I thought about RAF but didn’t expect there to be any relation to GAZ.

    Why I hope autonomous automobiles (Auto-Autos? Will there be an Auto-Auto Audi?) become more common… many more Skitching opportunities!

    P.S. In my town we called this “Bumper Skiing” in winter time. I don’t recall a word for the summertime version, on roller skates, skateboards or bicycles. Never heard the word ‘skitching’ until I moved out of New England.

      The summer version of bumper-skiing is commonly referred to as “death”.

      We used to call it sand skiing, when at the beach. I guess a skateboard would have been a lot less friction than wet sand, though the street would have been a much harder surface for the inevitable fall.

    Those tail lights were shared with early Lotus Europas. Speaking of which, here’s one that was turned into a boat :

      Iconic or Ironic ? You be the judge…..

        Well that’s a Florida dealership, C.T. Kruse, and that’s a Plains Indian costume, rather than a Muscogee, which would be more suited to running around in dense woodland. A Wampanoag or other Abenaki style might be suited to Indian Motorcycle Mfg.’s Springfield, Massachusetts origin.
        So it’s neither iconic nor ironic, just plain wrong.

      No, but it’d be nice if somebody made a replica that fit on a Miata hull….
