1990 Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V Evo

With every passing year, more and more cool motors become eligible for importation as they pass the 25 year rule imposed by tyrannical US bureaucrats. One car that enthusiasts on these shores have been waiting for and just started to gain access to is the Lancia Delta Integrale. While this 1990 16V Evo model for sale in the UK isn't quite eligible yet, it gives us fans of this rally champ a taste of what's to come two years from now.

**Please note this vehicle is located in the UK**

Here is a unique opportunity to have one of the first road legal Evoluzione's in the US!
The legendary Lancia Delta HF integrale 16v, finished in Nero Metallic 802 with a Sage green Alcantara Recaro interior.

**VIN NO. ZLA831AB000501475**

The car was originally registered in the UK on May 18th 1990 & gradually rusted away with our salty roads. Around 13 years ago, the owner decided to restore it with everything Evolution including a rot free body shell.

It drives fantastically well with no smoke, dramas or nasty rattles. It has never been involved in an accident & is stock. Also present is the original hand book, service book & lots of old bills / receipts. The car has never had any welding repairs & is still solid. This is a genuine sale & the car is located in central England. You will need to organise your own shipper & getting it to the docks but I will help, however I can. If you have any questions then feel free to send me a message. Thank you.

The Evo I and II are the Integrales that bring the most cash these days, as they are the last of the breed and feature styling and performance enhancements not seen on earlier Integrales. The asking price here is about in line with what Evos are bringing abroad, however, factor in the shipping and customs fees if this was legal to import and it becomes a pricier proposition. Perhaps a few intrepid enthusiasts may go to the trouble of bringing these rally beasts over once the 25 year threshold is reached, but once here, you know they won't be cheap.

1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6

The Alfa Romeo GTV6 has been identified as one of the definitive sports coupes of the 1980s by critics as of late. Sure, it wasn’t the fastest of its breed, but who can argue with the sonorous V6, balance offered by a rear-mounted gearbox and looks that are decidedly Italian? This GTV6 for sale in Pennsylvania has a new clutch, brakes and paint job and has covered well under 100,000 miles.

When these cars were new, much like it’s sedan counterpart, the Milano, I didn’t give them much thought. Perhaps it was because I was younger or that I took for granted at the time that Alfa Romeo would be around forever in this market. In any case, if BMW E30 prices are spooking you lately, the GTV6 may just do the trick. The price of this car is a bit reaching. I’d suspect somewhere in the $10,000 to $13,000 range at best would be all of the money.

1973 Fiat 130 Coupe – REVISIT

The Fiat 130 Coupe in Florida that we have featured back in May is back up for sale, with the price lowered by a few thousand dollars. I think we're getting right near the sweet spot of what a car like this will bring in the US market.

The below post originally appeared on our site May 30, 2012:

The Fiat 130 Coupe is probably one of the greatest cars you've never heard of. Only 1,803 of these crisply tailored coupes were built between 1971 and 1977. This car helped to revive business at Pininfarina and blazed a trail some automakers that would shift to more squared off styling in the decade to come. These cars weren't sold new in the US, but a few made their way stateside, like this 5-speed manual equipped example for sale in Georgia.

In the USA when we think of Fiat the last thing that comes to mind is a full size luxury car. In the early 1970s Fiat created the 130, which was a luxury model to compete with the likes of Mercedes Benz and BMW. The 130 was fitted with a V6 engine developed by Ferrari engine designer Aurelio Lampredi. A bland looking four door salon was introduced in 1969 of which 15,039 were produced. In 1971 a beautiful 2 door coupe, designed by Pininfarina was introduced of which 4,294 were built. The 130 was not imported into the USA therefore they are very rare in this country.

The 1973 Fiat 130 Pininfarina coupe is loaded with luxury features such as real wood trims, courtesy lights everywhere, rear shades, adjustable steering, power windows, ZF power steering and dual horns. There is even a lever for the driver to open the passenger door remotely! Most 130 had automatic transmission; this car has the rare ZF 5-speed gearbox. This was the same gearbox used on the 2.4 liter Dinos. Also most 130 had velour interior, this car has the optional leather interior which is in excellent condition. Beautiful wood Nardi wheel and modern MP3 radio.This car also has the optional factory installed air conditioner, which works and blows cold.

This car is in overall very good condition. The body is straight and rust free with no signs of prior accident. The dark blue paint is very nice and presents itself well. The deep red interior is really luxurious and nice, especially considering the age of the car. Mechanically the engine has very good compression with 155 psi across all cylinders. The clutch was just replaced. Car runs, brakes, and steers as it should.

The Fiat 130 is a really good driving car and feels more like a sports car than a full size coupe. The engine is very peppy and the 5-speed gearbox has short throws. With power steering and independent suspension it handles very sporty. In fact, the gearbox and suspension uses most of the same components as the very sporty Fiat Dino. The V6 Dino engine was also designed by Lampredi and is a close cousin to the 130 engine.

This is a very exclusive and rare car in remarkably good condition. A unique opportunity to acquire a car that is fun to drive and will be a hit at your next Italian car gathering. In case you are wondering why I am selling this car ... I have a second 130 coupe which I am keeping.

Last year, we featured a 1973 Fiat 130 Coupe with an automatic transmission that was listed at $41,900. This car is priced much more realistically, and I wouldn't be surprised if it sells quickly at the asking price of $29,000. You would probably be the only one in your state with a coupe like this, and the 5-speed manual gearbox adds a bit more involvement to the formula. If I had the cash, I'd eschew the Mercedes-Benz SLC coupe, a car I like very much, for this Fiat. The Pininfarina styling still looks stunning 40 years on.

1968 Lamborghini Islero

I grew up in the era where cars like the Countach and Testarossa were in their heyday. But somehow, I wasn’t one of those kids who plastered one of the numerous posters of these outlandish sports cars on my bedroom wall. No, I was the odd one. Cars like the Citroën SM, Buick GNX and Audi Ur-Quattro were the cars that piqued my fancy. For me, cars are like wealth. Those that have the means don’t need to shout about it. But, there’s always the subset of the population who will want the brash face to go with the performance edge.

Amazing, then, that the manufacturer that popularized the mid-engine supercar formula started off with vehicles such as this: the Islero. Few people, even enthusiasts have ever heard of this car, let alone seen one. But it offers a window into the world of early Lamborghini history. This particular example for sale in Washington state has won an award at Concorso Italiano and is in show ready condition.

1968 Lamborghini Islero GT 2+2 finished in stunning Argento Silver over Tobacco interior. This car, Chassis #6318 and Motor #2457 was the 104th Islero produced and delivered new on January 28th, 1969 To AutoElite in Europe. The 320bhp Lamborghini V12 engine has six Weber twin-choke carburetors and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Still retaining its original interior that is in stunning condition, it also retains its original color having been professionally re-sprayed during its cosmetic restoration. A full and comprehensive mechanical restoration was completed in 2012 at a cost of over $55,000 by Alpha of Tacoma. A strong and complete Islero with collector quality status and future upward mobility. Coming with extensive documentation from birth, such as Telex, window sticker, travel passport and multiple records and history of the car. Receipts for all recent work is available as well upon request. Sporting newer correct reproduction tires as well as its original RARE knock off Miura style wheels, its beauty is unsurpassed. A Lamborghini of the V12 era and Gentleman's GT cruisers, this show ready Islero recently won 3rd prize for 'Front Engine V12' at the Concorso Italiano. This never to be seen again styling Lamborghini Islero GT 2+2 is ready for its proud new owner!

Outside of the Miura and original 400GT, a lot of classic Lamborghinis languished in the collector market due to their obscurity. In the past several years, however, things have started to trend upward for these cars, which were devised as an onslaught to Ferrari’s dominance in the Italian sports car market. At almost $200,000 this Islero is on the high end of the market, but seeing as how it has a recent restoration and is a no excuses car, it might be worth it to the right buyer. You may get a lot of folks asking “what is it” but when they look at the badge and see the Raging Bull, you’ll garner a new found respect.

1995 Alfa Romeo 164LS

I always felt kind a bit sorry for the Alfa Romeo 164. True, it missed the rear-drive DNA from Alfa sedans of yore, but this would be the last Alfa sold in the US until the exotic 8C Competizione arrived in 2008. With its lusty V6 engine and crisp Pininfarina lines, this was a luxury sedan offering panache few other manufacturers could match at the time. Nowadays these four doors are reasonably affordable and offer an interesting choice to those seeking a mid 1990s luxury sedan on the cheap. This final year 164LS for sale in Connecticut has had but one owner and has covered a mere 25,000 miles. And yes, it has the all-important third pedal.

1995 Alfa Romeo 164 LS, black with black leather interior. 5 speed transmission. Only 25,000 one owner miles. Very clean and very nice. Fresh timing belt, water pump and fluid change. Car runs and drives as a 25,000 mile car should. Clean car fax. Rear bumper has scratch (see photo). Clear coat on wheels is coming off, other wise car shows very nicely.

Car is located in northwestern Connecticut about 75 miles north of New York City. If you have questions you can reach me thru ebay or call 860-350-1140. I have a page with many detailed photos of the car, please go to forzamotorsports with the usual com ending. Buyer pays shipping. International buyers welcome, I can help arrange shipping to any point in the world, but you must pay for it. Thank you for looking at my listing.

I’m not sure how a car like this can have such low mileage. While they were derided for their front drive architecture when introduced, they have aged to become a solid choice for those seeking a bit of driver involvement. Recently, a 164 passed me on the road and I almost mistook it for much more exotic Italian machinery due solely to its exhaust note. The fresh service, including timing belt, is certainly a plus whereas the minor cosmetic issues would be easy to resolve. The asking price of $13,500 is strong money for these, no matter how clean they are. Another, earlier low mileage 164 5-speed has been for sale for quite some time at almost $15,000. Once these 164s pass the $12,000 mark, it gets harder to find those willing to part with that kind of cash. Realistically, this car should be priced somewhere between $9,000 and $11,000. At that price point, it certainly wouldn’t last long.
