I've been told this week at work that they need 24/7 access to the company van that I have been allowed to use for my weekday commute so I suddenly find myself looking for another Lancia that is considerably less thirsty than my Themas. Does anyone have a not too rough Y10 that they would like to go to a caring home?

...and I have a friend who'd be interested in one as rough as you like as long as it had an MOT or at the very least a believable fail sheet.

You are not alone. Since petrol went up in the budget here last month I have been unable to bring myself to fill the tank of any of my regular 25mpg cars (Flavia/W124) so they are all running on the red light and I am now running down the wife's Golf which is better for the snow that accompanied the budget and since.

I am getting a Y10 for Christmas which I hope to press into service as the recession deepens and after doing a few jobs on it. Jack Romano says they run on petrol fumes and, judging by the one I have already, I don't doubt it.

Good luck in your search!

Lancias that begin with "F" ... and affordable variants beginning with "Z" and "P" ..... and now with added "Y"!

Murph,

             If you've been a good boy and Santa brings you a Y10 as hoped, you'll have to change your signature on the 26th!!!!

Murf,
this is the one you want http://www.autoscout24.it/Details.aspx?id=186887774 unfortunately it's in Italy and they never came here.
I went after one when I was in Belgium about 5 years ago but someone beat me to it.

So have I, I bought one new in 1986 although the Y10 4x4 has a different system with the engagement using vacuum cylinders.

I bought an Ypsilon last august , left hand drive, no problem, punto mechanicals no problem, fill of petrol no problem, 60.00, only problem I dont drive my other cars, the grale is very hard on juice, the Thema is better,but the Ypsilon runs on the smell of a wet rag and it's quite nippy. Also they are as cheap as chips more refined than a Y10 , so have a look for one . Grin. David.

Brian, on the 4x4 , I can rember the Fiat panda 4x4 being sold along side a Y10 4x4 lhd in our local Lancia dealer, the Garage imported it for a customer in the Horse business who already had a Hpe vx  and wanted a little bit of luxury when driving through the fields to visit the horses. I don't know it this is true but it made a cheap alternitave to a Range Rover Smiley

1400 Euros?  They are taking the p*** surely?  Its a tatty old car that looks like its *never* been washed.  Still - 4wd.  That counts for a lot at the moment.  Stuff my Scirocco, what I really need right now is an Octavia Scout.

Panda was excellent in snow as it was light, had some nice Mud & Snow chunky tyres, and much more capable than you would think,  only thing is never run them in 4 wheel drive on dry roads as they don't have a centre diff, and wind up the axle something wicked Shocked
The other good one was the Suzuki SJ410 & 413 Jeeps, go more or less anywhere as once again they were light but also had proper 4 wheel drive and locking front hubs, used to love our Austin Champs in the Army but they were really too heavy in bad conditions.

I have a 2005 Panda 4x4 and can thoroughly recommend it. Slowest thing on the road most of the time but in this weather, one of the quickest!

I'm amazed at the deluge of posts in response to my request. Thank you guys for the suggestions. I think that i ought to widen my search to include Ypsilons. Anyone got a slightly doggy example they would like to re-home? Alternatively a 4x4 Panda but I think I'd really struggle to squeeze in as I'm 1.97m tall. I will check out the websites to see whats about .

Well I'm 6ft and nigh on 17 stone and I find there is plenty of room in the Panda.....(don't do metres!)- but it isn't a Lancia. In saying that, it will be as much a Lancia as any upcoming chryslers!

Can't say the old one was a problem either, it had plenty of room even if I'm not 6 foot,
Could do with one right now as we're having more of the white stuff and waiting for my snow chains(sort of) to arrive.
