79' Lancia Beta Coupe, 46,000 original miles. Complete frame-off restoration to "better than original" factory condition. This was a 6 year process that included, engine rebuild w/new clutch, new paint and minimal body work, interior (leather seats), headliner, door cards, electrical harness, fuel and exhaust system, brakes and suspension systems.
Complete photo record of all repairs and parts. This is a beautiful 100pt. restoration on a very rare, limited production sports car. Only 2456 vehicles were imported to the US between 79 and 82. You rarely see these cars at a car show. Most of them rusted away in the first years of production. This is a "survivor car" and an excellent candidate for a total restoration.
