Footnotes

  • Lancia had been part of the FIAT empire for ten years by the time the Delta was introduced in the autumn of 1979, and so the smart new five-door hatchback made use of the FIAT Strada's transverse engine/front-wheel-drive power train. The platform and suspension though, were unique to the Delta, as was the attractive body by Ital Design. This was the era of the 'hot hatch' and high-performance versions were not long in coming, the Delta HF Turbo being a new introduction for 1984. Power output of the blown 1.6-litre twin-cam engine was 130bhp initially, rising to 140bhp in mid-1986 with the arrival of fuel injection, which was good enough for a top speed of over 120mph with 60mph attainable in around 8.5 seconds.

    The prototype of an intended limited production run that never materialised, this unique Delta was converted when new to cabriolet configuration by H R Owen of Berkeley Square, London W1. After serving as a demonstrator, 'D89 HYK' went to Lancia Ealing, remaining there until the former went into liquidation. The car was then sold to Charles Coutts from whom it was purchased by the lady vendor's husband in 1996. Since acquisition the Lancia has been regularly maintained and MoT'd annually by Maygrove Motors, there being numerous bills on file for works carried out. Described as in generally good condition, running very well, the car is offered with service history, current MoT/tax, V5C document and all expired MoT certificates from new confirming the recorded mileage of only 48,000.
