Lancia hasn’t built a Delta HF Integrale since the last Evoluzione II rolled off the assembly line in 1994. Adding to the damage, if you want a brand-new, two-door Lancia Delta Futurista made by Automobili Amos, you’ll have to fork out $350,000 for all that carbon fiber. However, in case you have one of the original Delta Integrales with a broken bumper, we have good news. FCA Heritage started molding these parts again after refurbishing the period tooling kept in storage at the San Beningo plant.
Both are made of molded plastic, but FCA Heritage reveals that while the 1987–90 Delta HF Integrales require Pocan granulates, the Integrale Evoluzione bumpers are made of Xenoy resins. Thermoplastic polymer fans, now is the time to take notes!
Stocking the bumpers again is a small step towards keeping all Integrales on the road—yet it’s a significant one. While restoring a 4WD Delta’s body panels requires steel sheets and plenty of skill, you can’t mold the larger plastic parts without having the factory tooling… not to mention that $1800 for an OEM front Evoluzione bumper is a much better deal than $150,000 for an Ameritech one that nobody would dare to put on a McLaren F1.
