Vehicle History:

One former owner:

I bought this car from a gentleman who restored Lancia's in Wrexham. They had used it as a family car and as a daily driver to the school that his wife worked at.

My ownership:

I bought it from them with the cam belt coming up for replacement, which was done as soon as I purchased the vehicle at the Alfaworkshop in Royston. I have had two cam belt replacement with them and the next is due at around 115-120,000.

Good points:

The car drives great and has given my no problems that were not part of the usual servicing and replacement of consumable parts. It is a 2001 vehicle so obviously it is not like a new car so please do not expect everything to be perfect.
However I am fussy and hopefully from the above details you can see that this car has been properly serviced. With the LPG it really is a cheap car to run at 69p per litre.

Red leather is in great condition for its age - I properly clean and feed it regularly and this has helped it stay supple looking fresh. Its a great place to sit.

It has a tow hitch - I think I have used it five times to go to the recycling tip and back.

Bad points:

Lacquer is peeling off a few panels and rear bumper, one wheel has curbing, airbag light is on (passenger seat sensor - common fault), Side skirts have been damaged due to the driving off a garage ramp and they hit the ramp and cracked - you cannot see it unless you really look for it. Recently the central locking has stopped working from the key - I have not looked into this and am assuming it is only the connection between the key and the car as it works fine on the key and all doors lock from the drivers door.

I am looking for a buyer who would appreciate a mechanically well maintained car but understands that it not a new vehicle, hence the asking price of £1250.

Reason for selling - I had an offer on another vehicle that ticks a box for me. I have now bought this vehicle and the 156 is now surplus to requirement.
