    Car for Sale in Belgium - LHD Stradale

    Popped up on Facebook.

    No connection to the seller. Not a fan of the side indicators, fake side intakes or the bonnet clamps. Nothing that can't be fixed.

    I've mailed to guy about this, very serious about buying it, agree, some details will need to be changed, just need to get my head around the importation/registration issue!
    If anyone can help with that?
    Cheers, Stu

    It's the OLIO FIAT one, now in plain yellow.
    You can see the intakes, indicators, battery cut hole etc.

    If it has just been repainted then it's a crying shame those parts weren't amended/removed during that process.
    Those side repeaters....

    Well, I'm out as it's just too much for me at 85k Euro's.
    Claims it's registered 'correctly' as a 1971 Lancia Stratos?

    It was originally a UK car so the UK reg could possibly be resurrected but yes, the price is high when it would ideally still require some work' wheels etc to make it look the best it could.
    Asking prices on the continent are usually high, especially if they have some form of registration in the respective country.
    I think the terms "registered correctly", "Stratos" & "1971" shouldn't be combined in one sentence

    Re: Car for Sale in Belgium - LHD Stradale

    I always feel uneasy about a car when it turns out it's being sold just a few months after acquisition, with a new paint job, for much more than was paid for it. Same thing happened with the ex-Nigel Wilkinson car recently - went from Nigel's wife, to an owner in Cheshire, then very shortly to Belgium, then a couple of month later it's up for sale with a new Alitalia livery for a massive mark-up. So what's to be inferred from that sort of activity? Is it a bad car with something fundamentally wrong? Does the new owner just not get along with it? Or is it an attempt at turning a quick profit?
    Makes the old alarm bells ring....especially when claims such as the above are made. Stu, I think you've had a lucky escape!

    Yep, at this rate, with no cars on the market, I might look at building a Hawk3000!
