Hi all,

I thought I'd make a quick post on here before advertising on the 'usual sites' later this week.

I have an '82 Beta Coupe 2000i.e for sale. It was subject to a full professional rebuild some years ago but remains incredibly original throughout. Just 67k from new, and just 9000 since the rebuild. It has been in the hands of the elderly previous owner for 25 years.

Bodywork and paintwork done by an ex Aston Martin panelbeater, and remains excellent throughout with very few defects. Engine bay is truly stunning, as is the underside. All trim appears to be present and correct, and the interior is in incredibly good order. Recent new tyres and a long MOT.

Engine rebuild (honed and not bored out, with new rings etc - it had only done 57k!).

It would say that it will probably be the best 2000i.e on sale worldwide. Compared to what others have sold for in recent years, I don't think 8350ono is an unreasonable amount - you may tell me otherwise!








Message me for more info, please!

Yes, it's back to the future for me with a car near identical to my first Lancia. Can't wait to pick it up......!

Well done Neil. Looks a lovely car- probably a bit more suited to your transcontinental trip habit!

Hope you enjoy it.

I'm going to keep both for now and see how I get on. If I settle with the ie I might consider parting with the 1300, especially if storage becomes an issue with my plans to move house....

Well, it's been a while since I picked up the ie and although cosmetically immaculate as stated it did have some rather serious driving issues once I got it on the road. Certainly an interesting addition to the 'should classics be MOT'd' debate, because this one was, very recently, and it isn't worth the paper it is printed on.

However I'd luckily bought from a reputable dealer and negotiated a substantial re-fund to cover rectifying the list of faults that had come up. I suppose as the car had only covered 380 miles in 8 years I should have expected this, but it has been a lesson learned for me in not taking a car at it's (very nice) face value.

Anyway, onward and upward. I've fixed the slipping clutch and obstructive gear change, so once I've sorted a leaking fuel pipe and the brakes in general I recon I will have a very nice car. Some of the visitors to the Manchester Classic Car Show certainly thought so.

What I find a little worrying is that a reputable dealer sold it without noticing the faults or perhaps without thinking they needed sorting.

Still well done for getting a discount and for retuning such a great example back to the road.

Hi Neil

Despite the issues, I still think you have one with all the basics right and with no real hard to fix issues, mechanical problems are soooo much easier to resolve than say rotten turrets.....

All the best, are we seeing it at the NEC?

Wow! Stunning!!

I'm new to this forum and am searching for a Beta Coupe - I had one back in the 80s - TBW32X and have never really got over it.  Just started searching last week and saw the advert for this one... Had I started looking a a couple of months ago, you might have bad some competition!

Congratulations Neil - looks beautiful!!
