1976 Lancia Beta Coupe

Rare Ultra-Low Mileage 1976 Lancia Beta

 

Driven less than 700 mi/year this meticulously maintained Lancia Beta is now available. The good care that this Beta has benefited from is shown by the unblemished exterior and the immaculate interior. All window glass is clear and chip free. The body is perfectly straight with uniform panel gaps. Mechanically the drive line is sound from the engine on including a strong clutch, five-speed transmission and final drive. Four-wheel disk brakes bring the car to a safe stop and quickly. We believe that this is one of the top five examples of an American spec Beta in existence in the US. No rust is evident anywhere. The car is great fun to drive with a good power-to-weight ratio and super handling and braking.

All badges are installed and all trim is in excellent condition. Inspection will show that all instruments work (speedometer, tachometer, oil pressure, oil temperature, water temperature, voltmeter, fuel level, clock). The newly aligned car handles and drives as one would expect from a fully sorted Lancia. A factory tool kit and manuals plus several reference books are included along with a spare NOS grille.
