Lancia 037 Stradale Replica For Sale (1978)
This replica Lancia 037 Stradale project uses a 2.0 Lancia Beta Monte Carlo donor car that was registered in September 1978. It has 42,000 miles on the clock and the Waxoyled bodywork is in very good condition. It also has a custom leather interior and great-looking quad-pipe exhaust. The donor car was a very tidy road-going example when I bought it. The car runs and moves under its own power, and the brakes are free.
According to the vendor I bought the 037 kit from, it was built with the help of the original Abarth moulds, and the glass fibre was set by ex-TVR men. The major parts of bodywork have been fitted and bonded on, so the remaining work is cosmetic finishing, fixing and wiring the headlights, and any mechanical mods that might be wanted (rear axle spacers, lowering, maybe bigger brakes) and bigger wheels. Some deep-dish Porsche wheels fit, or the Monte Hospital offers 037 replica alloys.
The central section of the actual 037 Stradale was based on the Monte Carlo, the interior was very similar, and a supercharged variant of the same Lampredi twin-cam engine was employed, so there is genuine lineage.
An authentic 037 Stradale is shown at autocollections
Two such cars have been sold in the last year around the EUR 200,000 mark.
Since starting the project I've moved for work and was unable to move it with me, so I'm looking to sell to someone who'll complete the work and appreciate the results.
The car is located in the Scottish Borders, an hour south of Edinburgh.
