Surely this is nothing more than a Dealer Conversion as the seller states (and doesn't appear to be a good one at that) rather than a "prototype" as the seller alludes to !!!!!

"Sporting a full-length convertible roof, this unique Lancia Delta is a prototype for an intended limited-production model that never materialised".

A high degree of cobblers in that advert.

Unless the rest of if is done to a far higher standard than the roof it will have all the structural integrity of a wet teabag.

It was a proper conversion, like Crayford, done by H R Owen with a view to limited production but the project didn't progress the prototype. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/21899/lot/358/

Quite a few deltas were converted mostly 1300  models but this might be the only turbo. Not really a prototype but part of a short run of conversions, I think they were approved by Lancar but aren't a Lancia product, they also did the same style conversion on Prismas and they looked a lot better.  Mountview motors sold quite a few back in the day..
