Hello I am restoring a Lancia Beta coupe from top to bottom. Body has been completely resprayed and I am in the process of pulling down the motor!

I have owned a Beta coupe since 16 yo. It was my 1st car. I am now 38 and still love the Beta coupe.

They are rare as hens teeth now in Australia.

Thanks for the forum and look forward to a chat with some of you.

I have so many spare parts it's ridiculous if anyone needs anything please give me a shout, maybe we could even trade?

Hi Dexitron,

Welcome to the forum! I purchased my Beta HPE when I was 22 (it was a 4yo trade in at Champions - the local Fiat Lancia dealer/importer). I think you must hold the record though as the youngest person to own one at 16! Wink

I read with interest that you have lots of Beta spare parts. That should make you popular on here Cheesy I am looking for a pressed metal rear transverse link replacement> I might PM you to see if you have  a spare one in good condition that you are willing to part with. We have a bent one on my father`s 79 Coupe which needs straightening or replacing.

Would love to see some pics of your Coupe too when you get the chance to post some.
