1978 Lanica Beta Coupe

Where: autobelle.it, Bergamo, Italy

According to howmanyleft.com, there are no 1978 1600 Beta Coupes registered in the UK, so if you want one Italy is now your best bet. They are still around in numbers there, and prices are sensible. Take this deep blue example with only 63,000km on the clock (39,000 miles) for under £4000. Photos show no obvious rust, the major issue with any Lancia of this period and the interior looks very well kept. The dealer will accept sensible offers.

Cost: €5500 (£3950)
