Last seen when it was my wife's company car (honest) in 1983.  Subsequently rumoured to have surfaced briefly in Southampton.  Is it still around now?

Anyone seen any sign of my old 1986 Delta Turbo D478 SAM, in Bordeaux Red metallic, loved this car, should never have sold it.Just surprised I never lost my Licence on my run everyday from near Monmouth to Cardiff & Back.
At one time before becoming mine, "Sam" belonged to Ade Rudler, the original owner was absoloutely fanatical & logged every trip with destination & Mileage.
Sold it about 1996 to a Gent in Great Malvern to finance my first Series 3 Thema 16v Vis Auto, another great car, L585 HAN.

Someone who is/was a member of the LMC used to own a Fulvia 1.6HF (Bronze) FRA 802L which I have recently bought. I would really like to find out more about where it was between 1996 and 2006.

Thanks

Y10 GTie

My first car was a Y10 GTie.  It was the UK press car for the launch of the series 2 GTi.  It's reg was G245 WRX and was red with black interior (naturally, for an 80's hot(ish) hatch.

I sold it on the morning of my graduation day in 1998 to a guy that worked at a Lancia/ Fiat breakers yard in Seaford.  I instantly regretted it and it totally spoiled my graduation day!  :(

I heard that the guy had replaced all the rusty panels (which was pretty much all of them!) and the car was sprayed yellow.

Does G245 WRX still survive in/ around the south coast?

Not sure about the Gamma FRX 439T but will check with at the Consortium Meet this weekend.
fairly sure that Monte HWP 614X was left in Totton Body Repairs and dismantled, at least the reg
rings a bell.

HPE VX A560LSH

Sold it in 1992 after I had put it through a wall 27/10/91 to a lad from Middlesbrough who was going to break it to restore his own car. I think that he ended up restoring my old one though.
Anyone seen it?

Hi All

Would love to know what happened to my Thema G955 PNJ, also my Prisma that had a superb metallic silver paint job on an old E plate, 1987. You'd notice it is you saw it!! Also Delta 1300 G675 FJK.

I used to also see and admire a black 1986 mark 1 Delta 1600 carb in th Guildford area. It had Integrale lights and uprated elecrics and it was owned by an electrician apparently!

Post by: mark on 18 April, 2007, 07:33:29 PM

Hi

I live near Seaford amd I'm sure I saw this car around a few years back. I believe it was owned by one of the guys who worked at Aberelli and I used to get bits from them for my Delta and see the car. I've not seen it for quite a while now I think the guy stopped working there..

Anybody know of any Betas registered PFY4T through to PFY10T? Sold through Bolton & Sons in Pilch Lane, Liverpool?

My very first Lancia was a 1600 HPE registered PFY2T, the best one I ever owned and dearly wish I still had. The plate has stayed with me ever since.
The donor car I bought for my Stratos replica was PFY3T (just one of life's incredible flukes!) and I saw PFY1T on another (Dino engined) Stratos replica (to make things really spooky!)

I'd love to acquire another Beta from the same range to restore, but it must be 15 years since  I saw any of them (5 on a blue sedan, 7 on a blue HPE and 10 on a white Coupe) and I suspect that they went the way of most Betas....

Cheers
Guy

A couple of years ago my girlfriend sold her grey Mk 2 Y10 Fire to a club member (reg H804 WNH).  We were reminiscing about the car last night and I wonder if anyone can shed any light as to it's whereabouts.  Is it still running?  Has it gone to the 2nd hand dealership in the sky?

I've just had a look at the DVLA and put in a vehicle enquiry.
See http://www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk/EvlPortalApp/application?pageid=Vehicle+Enquiry&portletid=VehicleEnquiry&portletns=VehicleEnquiry_en&wfevent=link.next

It looks like the last time it was taxed was 1995.

Thanks Brain, I never thought of doing that!
Doesn't look good if it has been off the road for that long. Would it say if it had been scrapped?
That said, my fulvia hasn't been taxed since about 1993 and it's still around.
Perhaps it's sitting in someones garage just waiting to be restored.

Title: Re: Where are they now?
Post by: fay66 on 24 June, 2009, 07:16:29 PM
Hi David,
Think your right and it hasn't been scrapped, it's last tax was due prior to SORN coming in, so possibly no one has bothered to tell the DVLA and it's waiting restoration if it's lucky, I've looked up some of my old cars and often it says not known, so I reckon that probably means it's been scrapped.

Looked up my last Fiat 500 XFC 185K that I sold to a guy in Swindon about 1989, and was pleased to see it's still shown as live on the system.

Interesting as I've never been able to find my integrale on the enquiry form. Typed in the registration, selected LANCIA on the drop down and I get nothing.

However, typing in LANCIA DELTA INTEGRA in the vehicle make box instead of using the drop down brings up the details ! This is the make as listed on my V5C.

Found out that my car has just celebrated 10 years of being in the UK !

Just had a look at DVLA Vehicle check.

1/ UKW 108S Shows last tax due 1/12/1995. so it's either not been reported as written off or is sitting around somewhere.

2/ F369 NJA. Still running around as next tax liability is due 1/9/2009.
3/ G635 UND. Tax last due 1/12/1998. so same comments as for 1.
4/ G812 YAN  Tax last due 1/5/1999 so same comments as 1 & 3.
5/ G831 OEC. Not Known details not found. Gone to the great scrapyard in the sky.

I bought XYM38N for my father from Ivor Hill, the Lancia dealer in Wimbledon when it was 2 or 3 years old and he ran it for a good number of years. It had green trim and a black back panel and was a good reliable car. When I sold it for him, we gave the new owner all the test reports we had accumulated on the car. Dad then bought a new white 1500 Delta from Ivor Hill for a great price which was not very well made although mechanically it was excellent. After dad died in 1996, it went to Peter Harding to have it and he put new doors on, sorted out the corrosion around the widnscreen and painted it yellow which looked great. It then lasted a good number of years with Peter.

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for my ex Fanalone chassis number 2124. It was red with the original yellow-blue stip. It's a road car and I owned it until 2001 then it was sold to Mr. Turner in England who sold it again to someone.
Does anybody know where the car is now? Any photos?

Thank you very much!

Chris,
This is the DVLA vehicle enquiry report,
The road tax or whatever you like to call it should have been renewed 1.8.1998, so someone has got it tucked away or the DVLA have never been notified that it's been sold abroad or scrapped,  as it's never been on the road since Sorn came into operation the owner doesn't have to tell them it's off the road or get fined for not doing so.
I think it's more likely that it's been scrapped after all this time, BUT ???

30 years ago I had an Astura chassis series III? - 1935 I think, that I rescued from Eddie Gee.  It had had an all aluminium saloon body that he had chopped off leaving the front wings (sweeping, with bilateral spare wheel mountings), scuttle and bonnet/radiator shell and boot.  These were red and black.  I have an idea that the instruments were not quite round and were brown but my memory may be failing here.  I sold it to a chap in Ulster who was trying to set up an Astura consortium and never heard any more of it.  I think the registration was BYL... (?or DUL>>>?).  Alas, I do not have a photo.

White Delta HF4WD reg D700SGO.   This was one of the first five HF4WD press cars and was the only one on the road.  I sold it to a guy who worked for British rail somewhere near Redcar. 

I found this car in a barn in Luton in a bit of a sorry state and rebuilt this car back in about 2000/2001 - It was featured in Paul Bakers Delta book as I put it back to original minus the half cage.  While at the NEC classic car show I heard that it was recently sold....possibly on Ebay.


Title: Re: Where are they now? Y10 GTie
Post by: rockets on 23 February, 2012, 12:31:36 PM
Hey everyone...I'm trying to find if my old Y10 GTie still exists or what happened to it. I owned it from 1993 to early 2001. Its registration was G851 YAN. A Rosso Corsa model. VIN/Chassis no. ZAA1560005051660. Engine no. 2958365. First registered 29th September 1989.

I stupidly sold the car to Trevor Nicosia when the clutch gave up....a bit silly considering how much care I had given the car during my ownership.

All I can remember is that he sold the car onto a guy who I think lived somewhere along the south coast of England. The new owner got in touch with me after I sold it wanting to know its history!!! At the time I lived near Heathrow but have since moved back home to Northern Ireland.

The car had a few distinguishing features, namely, Lancia emblems at the bottom of the front wings and B pillars. Red inserts in the bumpers. Also I purchased 'Y10' badging from the last facelift of the Y10's and these were beside the front side indicator repeaters and on the passenger side dash. I may have still had a GTie badge from a Delta on the front grill as well at the time. In addition, the interior had an econometer gauge in place of the coin tray (not connected) and 'Alcantara' side panels by the rear seats (which I had got from a 'Touring') instead of black plastic. Lastly, there were walnut inserts from a Rover on the door cards and possibly above the glovebox.

All I have managed to find from the DVLA was that it was last taxed in either 04 or 06 (I can't remember which). The DVLA guy couldn't release more info other than to say that he didn't believe it to be scrapped but neither was it SORN!!!! Confusing to me!!!!!!??

If anyone knows anything about my old car please let me know....even if it has come to an unfortunate end!!!!!

I should never have gotten rid of it in the first place!!! It was in pretty good condition having been on the Lancia Motor Club stands at 3 Dublin and Vintage classic car shows in the 90's.

Many thanks
Stephen Irwin

Post by: fay66 on 23 February, 2012, 12:41:37 PM
I hate to say it but with it being 6 or 8 years in the worst case of it being off the road, I think it's more than likely it's gone to the great Lancia Graveyard.
Having owned a couple of Y10's a Fire & A Gtie, the worst thing you can do is let one sit around without being used, as is the case with most cars, and I know that both of mine had to be constantly used, and I had to keep on top of anything that needed doing to the body.
Because someone hasn't notified the DVLA is no guarantee it's still around as if it went off the road before the introduction of Sorn which might be the case, I can't remember when that came in, many people just didn't bother to let the DVLA know.

After the AGM we were aproached at Wrest Park by an Alfa enthusiast whe asked if anyone knew of a car he test drove in central London a decade or more ago. It was owned by a barrister and was a series 1 fulvia 1600 HF, heavily tweeked and sporting a Stratos steering wheel. He understood it to have been campaigned in ice racing in Sweeden. Sadly it was distinctly showing its' age and hard life so the gentleman resisted the temptation.
