Looking for a decent Beretta

Postby 1987GT » Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:04 pm

After owning approximately 35 of these cars over the years, restoring 3 from ground up, I am ready to get back into Beretta's after a very brief Mustang phase. I am looking to spend around 1500.00 for a solid car. I am not looking for a particular model or year but would prefer the V6. I'd love to find a nice 87-90 but those are virtually gone.

Not looking to travel far live in Pittsburgh region in southeast Ohio. Any help would be appreciated. I used to be an active member here years ago, can't even remember USERNAME or I'd of dusted that account off just to try and recover a few pics that may be in my posts. Thx a ton!

I hope you find what you like.
87-90 body styles are my favorite as well.
My Black 96 may be priced higher than you are looking to spend but its a clean car here in NE Ohio if you were interested in looking. Its posted on Craigslist akron/canton, comes with a few things too.

You may have better luck finding a Beretta for sale in the facebook groups. One is called Beretta.net members and the other is called Beretta Parts and auto sales.
Last I heard there was a blue GTZ listed for sale for about 3000 ish in the Beretta.net facebook group. I'm not sure but I think it was one of the later v6 manual versions; Possibly the 3.1 MPFI v6.

35 Berettas in a life time. You got me beat there. lol
Most I had including current ones is 7.

Thx, for reply. Yes, I've owned a bunch. My friends used to joke that I've owned every Beretta or a part from on in the surrounding counties..lol

I'd like to stay right around 1500 but I'll check those out. Thx again!

Np.
You might have to travel to find a clean one as most all of the lower prices ones in Ohio look like rusty ones.
I did find this, its not mine, not sure of its condition though:

Might be worth it if all it needs is a driver side subframe, but you never know until you look underneath with these cars. I remember seeing a nice red 88 GT in MI years ago, looked mint, but the underneath was a rot box, they wanted 2800 back then and I later found out someone actually paid them that much.

Yes, unfortunately the undercarriage on these cars do not hold up as well as the outer body panels minus rockers into 'A' pillars. I blame most on the rustproof craze of the time. Every dealer had their F&I mgr. Push "Protection Packages on customers and 80% were not done properly and moisture was sealed into undercarriage before the car left lot. Not only Beretta's but all cars from right around '84-2000. Luckily, people started to wise up and learn most cars are undercoated from factory where it need be. I rem. my first new Beretta back in '91, bought a leftover Malchite Green Base with V6. That car looked as nice or better than anyone around. It had a luggage rack but I grew to like the look. I just wanted black interior. What I would do to have that car now.

Yah the black interiors are nice.
My favorite is the Indys. Teal tinted interior with bright teal or yellow accenting. I know some say its a grey interior but it does have a teal tint to it.
