Ooof, a Lancia Mk 2 Astra.  I like very much.

Edit - Prisma also looks great.

The first attempt at starting has failed . I've replaced the bust fuel pipes but still nothing . Tonight I've fetched my noid lights home , plugged on into a injector connector and there not flashing when cranking . Ive tested the crank sensor resistance and it's open circuit so that will be the culprit . One is ordered and will be fitted when it arrives .

This era of lancias are really well put together . Yes it's a bit boxy and dated by 1990 . But they are better built than the dedra which replaced it . As with most Italian cars it's the earth's that cause issues . I've got a dedra turbo engine sat in garage ,I'm in 2 minds whether to fit it to this ,it's a straight bolt in .

I love these Prismas. My old man had the chance to get one as a company car back in the day. Lancia were trying to win over the uk public by getting AA staffers to drive around in them. He chickened out and went for a Montego (or was it a Cav?). What a dunderhead! 😁

I had two of its Delta brothers - a 1.3lx and a gtie. Great cars and pretty well put together too. 👍

Bit more work done . Replaced all rear brake pipes , bled brakes and we now have a nice pedal , all brakes are free too. Starter motor was weak , so I removed a known good one off a dedra turbo engine I've got in garage and fitted that . It's now running , I've freed off the stuck injector , engine runs smooth . Ideally I need to do cambelt before I run it again .

The last Prisma I saw was at Walker's a couple of years ago.  Also a G reg, which was a late one I think.  I later went to view the Fiat Tipo they took in part ex for it, which they happily told me was a much better car than the Prisma.

Still would.  Many times over.  Not as much as a Thema, mind you.
