Thanks for the comments guys. Yes, it was never about making money, more an effort to save an unsung car that had great potential.
Whatever happens to it now its future should be assured.
I agree Frank, it's not like I need the GTie for my fix of a country lane blast, so it may well stay and the GTie get sold. But equally I may do that one up too as it's at that point where the wrong owner could easily get put off by a few upcoming jobs and actually scrap it!  Cry
There's a strong chance it may get the same treatment as the LX so it too an be assured a decent future.

Interestingly too that this morning the Y10 went for the MoT and this afternoon I took the integrale. Guess which one felt most fun?
At 55 to 60 mph in the Y10 it feels like you're getting every last inch of performance from it, especially in the twisty stuff, great fun. The integrale on the same trip feels so assured that it is actually less involving, if that makes sense? To be feeling like you're getting anywhere near its performance level you have to travel at licence worrying speeds.

Best cars I've ever had for having fun were the 3 Fiat 500's I had back in the early 1980's and 1990's, didn't go very fast, but boy was it fun getting there, real roller skates., and a very close 2nd was the citroen 2cv6 and the Dyane,.
Although both were before I got into Lancias!

James Hunt who had a 6.9 litre Merc and an Austin A35 van said something like you can have just as much fun in the A35 it's just that if you over do it in the A35 you aren't going fast enough to do much harm.

As much as I like the little car I have to face facts, too many now to keep them all, other than sticking them in a shed, which they don't deserve..

That's very tempting, Kevin; I'll have to see what the moths in my wallet have to say about it  Wink

Just been sorting through the paperwork, knew it had some service history, didn't realise there was so much fro the original selling dealer, same name still in the rear window sticker and on the original number plates that I still have and will go with the car.

There are a few invoices after that which back up the mileage just over 38k now, so as far as I can tell it's genuinely low miles.

This afternoon the Y10 had its longest ride for many a year, all the way to North Yorkshire to Mathewsons auction house where it will be in the June auction, people may have seen the TV show "Bangers and Cash" that is filmed there.
They also did a greta job on selling Richards' Fulvia recently so I will trust the Y10 to them.
Should appear on their website soon, I'll put links up as and when.
Derek took it for a little spin around the block and proclaimed himself happy with it.
Car did the 100+mile journey without a hitch, hardly used any fuel too. Even had a snow shower on the way up between the sunshine!

Would have thought you could have sold it on here pretty easily Kevin.

Loving that reg  Smiley Smiley Smiley The auction house is not far from me might pop along and check out the car before it is sold.

I did consider advertising it for sale, on here and elsewhere, but I really have no idea what it is worth.
I was impressed with how Mathewsons handled Richards Fulvia sale and fancied the excitement of watching it go through, it will sell for whatever the market decides it is worth I guess! I did kind of try and drop a few hints that I may try and sell, 
The car will be available to view at their premises, should be details soon once they get sorted out. They are still busy sorting out cars from last weekends sale but I'd guess by next week it'll be on the internet.
