This has appeared on ebay. If any members reading this saw this car 2 years ago sitting on a driveway in Dunbar and spoke to elderly wife of previously deceased owner who may have bought it new. memory a bit hazy but if want to discuss send me a pm.

Far too much money for a vehicle that may need a lot of work, despite the condition of the body and only 45K on the clock,and after standing for a number of years there's bound to be a few surprises, four new tyres are going to be at least 200 for half decent tyres.
If anyone is tempted to buy, make sure the gearchange knob assembly is in PERFECT condition, these are unobtainable in RHD form, and I've never found a LHD one either.
I sent the last UK one available to an owner in New Zealand about 10 years ago.
Bob Hierschorn has been looking for a gearchange knob for about 3 years, with no luck.
I had one automatic, and I disliked the gearbox intensely, so I must have had a brain storm when I bought another.
I know Bob is happy with his one,  and I had no reservations with the rest of the Dedra Autos, just the gearboxes.
I'm not trying to put anyone off of buying it, as I think Bob's is the only one on the road, and being that there were only 30 that came here in the first place, it's a pretty good survival rate.

I also have the Automatic specific manual, besides the normal Lancia Workshop manuals if required.
