I am not connected to the seller (though I  don't  mind helping any seller hook up with a potential Lancia buyer and vice versa) and these are not really my thing but I spotted this one which looks like a nice example and may be of interest to someone.

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

Looks very nice, and neither of the previous 2 owners have been tempted to stick prancing horse badges on it, only 18K sounds good in some respects, but althought the belts were changed only 3K ago it was in 2005, so to be safe it would need that side of things checking, all in all well worth a look if you're in the market for one, and can live with the fuel consumption Shocked

Have to say it looks tempting but the alcantara is a big negative and the mileage is probably a negative as well. Cars, and Lancias especially, in my experience don't take kindly to not being used. So figure in the belts, and other issues it could well be a bit of a money pit, even with 18k miles.

Very nice, Alcantara a neg as the frau leather was beautiful however not everyone likes leather, mileage a big plus, low mileage is always worth more if it can be proven, I agree that if it's not used things can start to sieze but if it's looked after correctly no reason for it to be a put off, if I had somewhere to store it i'd buy it at that money, awful lot of motor car!

Perhaps. But it had an MPH clock in it with 18k miles - however car was an import so unless the new speedo was reset to the original kms then something not altogether right...... (prophet of doom here!)

Yes, they were sold in the UK in their own right even though like all integrales they were LHD only, I also have a brochure in english dated 4/1989, and a can't lay my hands on it at the moment but there was an article in 'The Marque' as well.

Apparently 9 officially sold through UK dealers. So all others private imports - or at least registered abroad first.

Fiesta diesel....nice!

Initially in 1987/88 it was around 37,500. Whether the UK cars came with the Frau leather I don't know, but it was an option on the continent to my knowledge. Hence some having the alcantara - albeit a different style than normal Themas. Still nto quite up to Fiesta standards though.
