Lancia dedra turbo for sale

Recommended Posts

I've decided to part with my dedra turbo. It's a Jreg and I've had it just over 12 months. I bought it as a non runner and it had been stood about 10 years. Its been extensively recommisioned and runs well.

It's had a new in tank pump, 4 new premium tyres, alloys refurbished, new centre caps, both rear calipers replaced, new rear discs and pads, new heater matrix fitted, 2nd hand radiator fitted, full cambelt and balance belt kit Inc bearings, full service, new distributor cap and rotar arm, new HT leads, new ign module, new front wheel bearing, 5 brake pipes, just had mirror covers painted too. It runs really well and pulls like a train. It's currantly got mot till 21st of Feb. All electric windows work and CL. Interior is very good, lovely alcantara in grey.

Mileage is 78000 miles

It could do with the bonnet painting and spoiler, when it went through last mot the hydrocarbons were high, they are still high, I suspect poss injector issue, but it does seem better. God knows what it's worth, I'd like about £2500 for it, but see how it goes. Ring 07554993584 if you want more info. Cheers matt

One for skizzer?

Indeed it would be, but I’m broke for the next few weeks until the unloved modern BMW finally sells (don’t ask), and I’m also out of storage.


I’d love to have a go in a working one of these. The overall shape is an acquired taste but the detailing is lovely, and the alcantara upholstery is particularly delicious.

This looks fantastic, I used to admire a Met Blue Dedra as a kid parked close to where we lived.


Love to buy this myself but I'm in the lack of space / money category sadly.

Oh you don’t know how much that tickles my fancies (ooh-er musses). You see I’ve had history with these, having owned two 2.0 n/a models. One was silver with a green alcantara interior and the other in fiat cloth. Both were delightfully detailed compact four doors that made you feel special on every drive, belying their rather hum drum underpinnings. They both reminded me that fiat cars of that era can rot well too. The silver one needed complete floor to sill on both sides and the red one I sold to Keith Adams who found out that Dedras can hide their rot extremely well.

There’s something about a Lancias of this era. It’s not their mechanicals - they share a lot with Fiats of the era, it’s not the styling that could be called challenging at the best of times. No, it’s the way they make you feel as you drive around, safe in the knowledge that you belong to some mythical “gentleman’s club” where a certain style and poise overbear anything else. They’re the black roll neck jumper and sports jacket of the automotive world.

Is anyone interested in this before I put it on ebay

Interested? Very much so. Capable of affording it? Unfortunately somewhat less so. Shame really, as it's a fantastic oddball car and I'd love it.


I would say roffle, but with tickets at over £40, that seems unlikely.

Oooh, lordy, this is nice.


How on earth can you value it, though? It's worth £10k, or nothing, who knows as it's such an oddity.


I have happy memories of being in one of these that rolled after getting airborne on a hump-backed bridge. I love 'em.


Good luck!

This is bloody tasty but I couldn't give it the home it deserves.


Friend from school's dad drove a white one back when they were new, and it felt like a rocket compared to my dad's Sierra.


Definite soft spot for these, glad to see some have survived!

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!

      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
