Description of this Lancia Zagato 1979

"The Zagato was designed as a targa type of "convertible" with the option of removing the solid panel above the driver/passenger and/or folding the soft rear window area. The Zagato starts in a sense as a Beta Coupe with a floor pan and body panels being sent to Zagato (Zagato is an independent coachbuilding company and total design center located northwest of Milan Italy) where the car is turned into a targa. Zagato begins with standard rear quarter panels adds the center rollbar section an...d reinforces the area behind the seat all of which goes to strengthen the open body. There is also some minor modification to the rear taillight panel and one reason Zagato does the work is that the car requires a fair amount of handwork which is best done by an independent design firm. After the cars are "targa-ized" they are shipped to Lancia for rustfproofing then back to Zagato for paint trim and upholstery then back the 70 miles to Lancia for drivetrain...which may help explain why the Zagato cost over $1300 more than the Coupe." – Road & Track October 1979 Lancia Beta Vx (Volumex) specs: Engine size: 2000 cc Number of valves: 8 Comp Ratio: 7.5 Boost PSI: 6.5 Intercooled: no HP @ RPM: 135 @ 5500 Torque RPM: 152 @ 3000 0-60 MPH: 8.3 seconds "Only about 300 Beta Volumex cars were sold in the UK" – Lanciana April 1991 This two owner 1979 Lancia Zagato offered here was purchased from the original owner a doctor in the San Francisco Bay area in 1984. The car has been enthusiast owned and never been exposed to snow or salt and was seasonally stored indoors.

In 1992 a Volumex supercharged (Italian) engine 5 speed gearbox complete with all ancillaries radiator fan exhaust manifold downpipe Volumex hood grille headlight frames and badging were sourced from L&M Supplies (Lancia parts specialist) and shipped from the UK.
