1976 Lancia Montecarlo Spider


The Beta Montecarlo was originally designated the X 20 and was to be the ‘big brother’ of the Fiat X 19, but whilst deciding what engine to fit, ranging from Abarth derived units, Abarth had carried out a lot of development work on the car, to the 3.2 V6 from the 130, the 2.0 litre Lancia Beta engine was used as it had a good blend of performance and economy. The name Montecarlo came from Munari’s recent win of the Montecarlo rally in a Stratos and in February 1975 it became the Lancia Beta Montecarlo and was first shown at Geneva in March.


Our vendor was finding it difficult to find a good example in the UK, so this beautiful rust-free and never welded example was discovered recently in Sicily. This Montecarlo is a very early car and supplied as the more desirable Spider version, finished from new in white with a rare blue Palazzi cloth interior.


Mechanically the car is excellent, with good power delivery and a smooth gearchange, aided by replacement throttle linkages and cable and new gear link bushes. The steering rack has been overhauled and a four-wheel alignment has been carried, additionally all brake calipers have been stripped and cleaned.


Sold with a full service and cambelt change, this is a very well sorted example of what is rapidly becoming a rather desirable Italian sportscar.
