***SALE AGREED***




1989 Hawk HF Lancia Stratos Replica

Many more pictures available to view here: - details above



The Lancia Stratos requires no introduction to any petrolhead. Designed by Bertone, it was a homologation special created by Lancia with one sole purpose: to win the World Rally Championship. The cars enjoyed much success and have since acquired an almost mythical status.

This particular Hawk replica was owned and built by the late Alan Cox, a founding member of the Stratos Enthusiasts Club. It was actually the second Stratos replica he built – you might say that the first one was a practice-attempt, and this one is the honed and perfected product! Hawk Stratos’ are notoriously difficult to build, but the fit and finish of this example is very good indeed, and the quality of workmanship and attention to detail is visible throughout.

The car has been dry-stored for several years so does require a certain degree of recommissioning before it returns to the road. However, it offers excellent value for money for an enthusiast who wants an easy project – it’s surely the cheapest and easiest way into a Stratos replica. You could either spend a reasonably small amount recommissioning the car, then use and enjoy it as it is - or go all-out and make it your own, and still be comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll likely be able to sell it for a profit, when the time comes.
These cars rarely appear on the market and are sought after across the globe! In top condition these replicas are worth upwards of £50,000. To build an example to this spec would cost in excess of the asking price, without taking into account some 300-400 hours of labour! However, when compared to the fact that original cars are now fetching upwards of £500,000, it really does make these replicas excellent value for money. They offer an excellent driving experience which is close to that of the original cars - and needless to say, the styling, too!



The bodywork is in very good order – panel fit is particularly good for a Hawk, and the doors shut with a nice ‘clunk’. The paintwork is very good, with only minor imperfections here and there – very little to worry about at all. There is no spidering on the fibreglass anywhere that I can see. The Alitalia style livery turns heads and looks very striking indeed! Compomotive FH500 split rims are fitted all-round and are in excellent order, with no kerbing.
The interior is clean and tidy – the door cards, headlining etc are nicely trimmed in vinyl, and the red carpets in good order. The dashboard is shod with Veglia Borletti gauges, as fitted to the original cars. Of course, the ‘Stradale’ dashboard looks great! Extra switches are fitted for front and rear fogs, as well as a boost gauge for the turbo.

The car is fitted with a Lancia 2.0 Turbo engine from a Thema (and later, the Delta HF). Obviously, because the car has not run for a few years, it would be sensible to give the engine a major service before attempting to start. I would imagine, to get it to an MOT standard, you would change the timing belt, go through the braking system, fit new tyres and you probably wouldn’t be too far off. Of course, it would also be sensible to renew the coolant hoses, fuel lines etc but these don’t look too bad. I have not connected a battery to check the function of the electrical circuits, but I doubt there will be any major issues.

The car is correctly registered on the V5 document as a 1989 ‘Transformer Cars’ Stratos. Transformer subsequently became Hawk Cars Ltd (Gerry Hawkridge), and continue to market Stratos replicas today. They are very well-respected on the kit car scene – if you’re looking at this advert, you’ll no doubt know a thing or two about them! Correct registration of these kits is paramount – there are many cars around which are still registered with their original donor car’s details, which becomes a big issue if the car is involved in an accident, or if it’s exported to another country, etc.

Values of these cars continue to rise quickly – for instance, just have a look at this (incorrectly registered!) car that sold at Goodwood earlier this year for nearly £37,000 – It’s very similar to this car in many respects – but would likely require an IVA test to be registered correctly, and would possibly even end up on a ‘Q’ plate.

All in all, this car would prove to be a fantastic investment for any buyer. Mr Cox’s children are very keen for the car to go to someone who will really appreciate and get as much enjoyment from the as he did. Also included are some detailed build notes on the car which will prove helpful to any buyer. The current V5 document is ready to be transferred into the new keeper’s name.

Serious enquiries only, please. The car is being sold as a restoration project, without warranty. The car must be viewed and inspected before purchase! RMC Classics Ltd are acting on behalf of the owners and accept no responsibility for the car once purchased. The car is stored at our premises in Manchester and can be viewed by appointment only. The price is as stated, inclusive of VAT – sensible offers will be passed on to the owners for consideration. The funds must be cleared before the car can be collected.
