Nice little 84 Beta Coupe VX in the next sale, pretty rare sight on the roads these days.
Plenty of pics and a detailed video. No affiliation to the car but if someone is looking for one maybe worth a look 👀

They sold one recently for a couple of thousand, it reappeared at the NEC Restoration show this year and made 5k odd. This one looks to be in better condition than that one. Looks like it still needs a fair bit of work though, sills underneath don't look great and the passenger B post may be crumbly? Retrimmed in the wrong material sadly. I think this one ought to raise over estimate.
Had I not already got a Coupe restoration under way I would have gone to see and maybe bid!

Agree it has the makings of a nice car and will most likely be 50% over estimate.
A shame I too have plenty of stuff on or I'd be tempted, but you can't have them all I guess!

Strong money indeed, but as you say, find another.
What was the original guide price again?

5k to 7k so it doubled as you said.

Even at that money it looked like it needed work to the sills and possibly A posts. I have no idea what state the suspension towers are in, I hope the buyer saw them before committing that much to the car with non original seat trim.

If anyone seriously wants a Beta VX Coupe I can point them in the direction of a seller with a car that will need a fair bit of work.

Alan Cooper went to look at in in the flesh and declared the sills and suspension towers intact as far a external inspection can confirm. The only downsides he found were the interior and yes, this isn't a miss print, some household plumbing fittings added to the cooling and power steering systems! I kid you not, the pictures are on Facebook.......
