1987 Lancia Delta Integrale HF 2.0 16V Turbo

With each passing year, a handful of cars forbidden to US enthusiasts become available due to the 25 year importation regulations set by the Department of Transportation, or, as I like to refer to the agency, the No Fun Club. As time goes on, we're seeing some interesting cars find their way to these shores. This Lancia Delta Integrale for sale in Toronto is calling the name of any American who ever dreamed of putting a six time World Rally Champion in their stable.

1987 Lancia Delta Integrale HF 2.0 16V Turbo

1987 Lancia Delta Integrale HF 2.0 16V Turbo with 30,800 original miles or 52,000 original km. Yes, “time capsule” with thirty thousand original miles or fifty two thoiusand original km since new! USA legal, titled as a 1987 Lancia Delta. It is more than 25 years old and is exempt from all EPA/DOT regulations and I have a clear Ontario title in my name. Six time World Rally Champion! Do I need to say more? If you ever wanted the greatest rally car of all time, here is your opportunity. This is from my private collection. You will never find such a low mileage, unmolested 2.0 16V Turbo HF anywhere! Here are some highlights:

-30,800 original miles/52,000 original km
-Stunning original paint!
-Absolutely no rust anywhere!
-Body is perfectly straight – never in any accidents or collision whatsoever!
-Fully serviced and can be driven anywhere as all systems work as they should!
-Stunning original interior, dash, carpets, floor mats, etc!
-Perfect crack-free original dash!
-Unused original spare tire, toolkit, compressor, etc!
-Stunning original car!

I stake my 100% positive feedback on the Integrale – it is stunning! Needs absolutely nothing and is ready to be enjoyed!

MOTOR:

-2.0 4-cylinder 16V intercooled turbo
-Full major service just done as follows:
-10W60 Lubro Moly Synthetic Oil
-New oil filter
-New NGK spark plugs
-New red silicone 8 MM wire set
-New distributor cap
-New ignition rotor
-New fuel filter
-No smoke, no leaks, no stories – runs like the day it left the factory!

UPGRADES:

-Short shifter by Delta Motorsports
-Air intake system
-Adjustable suspension
-Lowered springs
-Stainless steel brake hoses
-Grooved brake rotors
-Yellow urethane bushings
-15" OZ Racing wheels
-205/50 15 Pirelli P700Z tires
-Wicked stereo system with twin amps, subwoofers, etc. The stereo system alone is $3,000!
-I have the all original parts as well as the original factor wheels, so you get two sets!

TRANSMISSION:

-5-speed standard transmission
-The transmission and clutch are LIKE BRAND NEW - shifts perfectly in every gear!

Almost $23,000 is a big ask for what is essentially a 25 year old Italian subcompact, but, those who view it that way are missing the point. Consider the recent surge in prices of the E30 BMW M3, another competition marvel of the day. Suddenly this Lancia begins to seem reasonable. These are fast, capable machines that foreshadow Subaru's dominance in WRC and subsequent sales success with the Impreza WRX. With more Integrales finding their way to these shores, parts and service support will no doubt grow, making it just a bit easier to own one of these legendary rally machines.

    Unfortunately, the prices of those desirable 25-year-old cars forbidden to US enthusiasts increase dramatically as they approach that 25 year mark.

    When I first clicked on this feature, I was really excited. After all, importing a car from relatively nearby Toronto is much easier than scouting out and shipping a car from Europe.

    Then, among all the other modifications, I saw the laughably oversize speakers in the rear parcel shelf…

  2. Paul says:

    Good point about the speakers, Larry. I forgot to include that in my post, but doing something like that to a serious performance machine makes me wonder what else this car has been through.

  3. Larry says:

    Exactly. Leaves you wondering about the kind of life this car has endured…

  4. miek says:

    FUCK yes. I love these and would sell a kidney for one.

    However you can buy the 16v for like less than $12k K in the UK….. overpriced much? You can buy an 8V for around $10k or less then ship it here legally now due to the 25 year mark…..

    I want one however $20k is what I would expect to pay for a low mile evo.

  5. miek says:

    Forgot to mention that I talked to a JDM importer who said he could source an 8v from Japan for $15k including shipping and fees. I told him that was still too much and then found an 8v on another site that was selling for $7k, rust free, and 60k miles.

    Check those Japanese car importers for these if you want one. Right now you can only import the 8v but the 8v is pretty much as good as the 16v.

  6. miek says:

    Wait… 87 16v? They didn’t start making the 16v until 1989. Someone doesn’t have their facts straight, unless he did a head swap or something?

  7. Dave says:

    Hey everyone,
    Great car Paul, just curious, i need to find a 16v pressure plate in toronto area.
    anyone know of where i can buy one? or more parts?
    thanks
    dave

  8. Paul says:

    Hi Dave,

    Your best bet would be to try the Fiat Lancia club at http://www.fiatclubamerica.com. They would be a good starting place to source suppliers for such things.

    Regards,
