Hi All

I received this via the forum email. If anyone is interested I can pass on Alan's email.

Peter

Original email -

I no longer have a Lancia, my Beta Volumex having been slowly eaten by the rust bug.

The reason I am writing is that I have a bolt of original Recaro houndstooth cloth that was bought in order to recover my seats some time. I've had the cloth 15 years+ and its been kept rolled in my airing cupboard so it's still perfect. I wanted to place an advert on the forum rather than putting it on eBay .

Would it be possible to place this ad not being a member? I'm sure it would be of interest to someone and I very much doubt this material is still made today.

The bolt of cloth is 3m x 1.45m.

It's now on e-bay at a starting bid of £60. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203100335196?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

Out of interest, as my VX HPE had a gold coloured Zenga cloth, were the coupe and HPE different or were both types of cloth an option on either model?

The Coupe had Ricaros as standard in the UK, so different from the HPE.

I'm pretty sure my HPE had Recaros too.

They were an option on the HPE, but pretty rare....

Indeed this is coupé cloth, the HPE had the same pattern but goldish indeed. (later also used in the first delta HF turbo's if I'm not mistaken)

Still have some recaro seats to be covered, but sold my Volumex coupé (still regret that....is was a terrific drivers car)

I have had my XV Coupe for 33 years & I can assure you that is not the correct colour for the Coupe which is a blue/grey tint.  The grey was the HPE version.

Are you positive you have Recaro seats in your VX Peter?

As above, all UK supplied VX Coupes had Rikaros as does Peter's. It looks like HPE/ie cloth to me too.

The seller said it was originally bought for his VX coupe, so happy to be corrected!

I'm leaning towards Coupe, the colour looks darker than either of the HPE VX's I had back in the day.

I am absolutely certain that the material for the coupe is blue grey.  Years ago I bought the rear seats from a VX coupe that was being scrapped to use the material for repairs, I bought a front seat from Mark (Betaboys) to replace one that was badly worn in my car.  Also years ago Omicron acquired the last length of that material which was then bought by Peter Dicks who would not sell me any of it.
