Interior has been completed. What a great feeling of accomplishment. Even the door panels are installed.

Door sills have been polished and (original) carpet has been cleaned and installed. No tears, burns or worn areas. This is truly a 45,000 mile car!

Time to return back to the engine compartment. Items completed are: new washer bottle, washer nozzles and hoses, wiper motor and hood latches with cables.

The rear suspension has been reinstalled and she is back on her rear wheels.

I wonder what the value of this beta will be when it is completed this summer? I have not seen any betas on the web that have had this extensive of a restoration. If anyone knows of some I would be interested to learn more information.

I found your thread while searching on pointers for my own Beta Coupe Restoration about to commence, and I had to join this site just to applaud your efforts and outstanding work. I hope you check in here and I can make contact with you, have a few questions to throw your way.

For those of you that are following my progress on my 79 Beta Coupe, currently my car is in a shop for final electrical work in the engine compartment. I will post some new photos in the months to come. Plans are to have her completed spring of 2015.

I have finally completed my 79 Lancia Beta Coupe!!! It has been a long road but now that I have her out on the road, it has all been worth the effort and expense. Here are a few pics.

Currently we are getting 2-4 inches of snow. Not a great time for taking pictures outside. Here are a few more before the snow yesterday. Over the next few months I will be refinishing the rims, new tires and 3 more pieces of trim to install.
