1979 Lancia Beta 2000 29,796 (Not Warranted) £3250.00 + buyers premium

Description:

Completely original top-of-the-range Beta Berlina which the vendor states is in excellent condition inside and out. File of MOT certificates and invoices, together with the original manuals.
Delivered new to Jersey, but its owners moved to the Isle of Man, where it spent the next 20 years. They returned to the UK mainland in 2000, which is when it was registered with DVLA. Its subsequent owners clearly continued to use the car sparingly, and keep it in excellent condition.
The automatic gearbox was completely stripped down and rebuilt (at a considerable expense!) last summer, and this repair comes with a 12-month guarantee to July 2018. The cambelt was replaced in January 2018 (29686 miles).
This was a top-of-the-range model in 1979, and its performance is surprisingly good even by modern standards, with a responsive kickdown. Some of the nice ‘period’ features include no electric windows (you have to wind them up and down), no central locking and no power steering, but it does have a Pioneer music cassette player/radio with the pop-off front panel security feature (remember those?). Cosmetically, it has not been restored in any way, so has a couple of car park-type dings, but is otherwise immaculate. Although there is no supporting documentation, it appears that the underside was “Ziebarted” or “Waxoyled” early on, which may account for the amazingly few spots of rust (after all, this is a Lancia Beta!).
MOT expiry March 2019 (no advisories).
