  • V5 Present
  • Chassis number: 828AB26157
Survivors of Lancia's stylish Beta range of 1972 to 1984 are few and far between in the UK, especially in MkI form, which makes this Berlina example a rare machine. The vendor tells us that it is 'completely original inside and out', even down to the windows, every one of which has matching numbers. The car is further described as 'rust‑free, really solid and immaculate inside and out'; a remarkable achievement given how many Lancias disappeared during the 1970s because of the British climate being somewhat less friendly than that of Italy. This car was Ziebarted when new. The original spare wheel is unused and the car comes with a load of spares.

This 1.4‑litre twin‑cam‑engined Lancia, in mid‑blue with beige cloth interior, was registered in December 1973 and has just one registered former keeper. The odometer reading is (1)52,077, although an extra 2000 or so should be added to this as the original speedometer was changed at 2000 miles due to incorrect gearing. The history folder also includes the V5C, owner's handbook and other documentation and booklets, as well as awards certificates from several shows and the original bill of sale from Lancia.

The car's body is described as original, with no filler, welding or new panels, with paintwork that has only had touch‑ups for stonechips. The engine has not been rebuilt or rebored. However, there is a list of parts that have been renewed since the car was new. These include the exhaust system (a stainless steel one is now fitted), five timing belt changes, and a clutch change at 116,300 miles. There was a conversion to lead‑free fuel at 141,500 miles.
