For Sale: 1981 Lancia Beta in O'Fallon, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Ft. Lauderdale is proud to present this super cool, rare 1981 Lancia Zagato. The Lancia Beta (Type 828) was an entry-level luxury car produced by Italian car manufacturer Lancia from 1972 to 1984. It was the first new model introduced by Lancia after it had been taken over by Fiat in 1969. The Beta was made in several body styles, namely 4-door fastback saloon (Beta berlina), 4-door three-box, notchback saloon (Beta Trevi), 2-door coupe (Beta Coupe), 2-door targa (Beta Spider), 3-door estate (Beta HPE); a mid-engined sports car was also sold under the Beta name, the Lancia Beta Montecarlo. The two-door convertible called the Zagato also with 2+2 seating. The Lancia Zagato used the coupe's shorter wheelbase and featured a targa top roof panel, a roll-over bar and folding rear roof. Early models did not have a cross-member supporting the roof between the tops of the A to B Pillars. Later models had fixed cross-members. Production started in 1975. It was initially powered by either the 1600 or 1800 twin-cam engine, later being replaced by the new 1.6 and 2.0. In Europe, it never received the fuel injected engine, although a fuel injected version was sold in the US market in 1981 and 1982. The Spyder was designed by Pininfarina but actually built by Zagato. The construction process was complex, with coupe bodies-in-white being delivered to Zagato for the roofless conversion, then back to Lancia for rust-proofing, then back to Zagato for paint, interior and trim, and then back to Lancia for a third time for engine installation and final assembly. Lancia probably lost money on every car built. Number built: 9390. In the early 1980s Lancia also produced a small number of Lancia Spyder Volumex (supercharged) cars. This was the last Lancia to be offered in the United States, being the company's sole offering in 1982, their last year in the country. This awesome little car comes at just the right time with good weather just around the corner and is ready to be driven by its new owner. Featuring a bright white exterior color, with a flat black hood, with a red scorpion, that is sure to catch people's attention wherever you go. The black leather interior is in great condition and very comfortable. This car is a Spring or Summer dream in a small package. This 1981 Lancia is so much fun to drive, that you will be speeding all around town both day and night. Powered by a 2.0 1995 CC engine, backed by a 5-speed manual transmission, adding to the control and fun factor of this awesome little roadster.
