Stellantis expands Heritage Parts division – all-new factory Lancia Delta Integrale parts now available

New parts for iconic models from Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Abarth also in reproduction

It’s one thing driving a rare classic car, yet quite another knowing that if it becomes damaged the task of rebuilding it might cause some headaches. To combat this, many OEMs have heritage departments that reproduce parts for their older models, and now Stellantis – formerly FCA and parent company to some of Italy’s most historic motoring names – has announced an expansion of its own Heritage Parts division.

The expansion will include the remanufacturing of parts for a whole range of iconic Italian models, in this case focusing on youngtimers from the ‘80s and ‘90s. This includes a long-awaited run of production panels for the Lancia Delta Integrale EVO, the quintessential Delta and one that shares almost none of its body panels with lesser models, making factory parts extremely hard to come by.

This new run of panels will include bonnets, front wings and door panels (front and rear) all reverse engineered from original and built to OEM specifications. They will also be made of the same low-carbon steel alloy as the originals, but with modern galvanisation to limit the chance of oxidation. This expanded line of metal body panels joins a range of front and rear bumpers that were previously available through the program, in those cases both built from the original moulds with a modern polyurethane. 

Other models also being focused on as part of the expansion include more modern Alfa Romeo models like the GTV and Spider, GT, 147 and 156, plus the Fiat Coupe and Barchetta sports cars. In each case, many of these new elements are constructed using the original manufacturing tooling and methods, thus ensuring ideal alignment and fitting. 

The reproduction of original parts for past models is something that German manufacturers are credited for, with Porsche and Mercedes-Benz particularly noted for their almost endless catalogue of original parts that help keep these heritage models on the road. This is something that Stellantis are clearly using as a model to keep its own heritage on the road, which given the nature of old Italian cars sounds to us like a wise investment.
