Beta truck - Benzina

Post by Geoff » 10 Oct 2009, 11:33

Does anyone have any images or access to a Beta benzina truck - made c. 1950-52, 4 cylinder, staggered, but parallel? Hard to find model.

Thanks,

Geoff

There are images in the new Lancia book, 70 Years of Trailblazing. It is called an U engine.

Thank you for this. I've looked at those, and they are helpful. Also a friend has sent some scans from a Z20 Owner's manual. Anyone got a manual for the Z10?

Curiously while the Z10 (2 liter) and Z20 (2.5 liter) share the same configuration (parallel 4 cyl, staggered), they are remarkable quite different engines. Different blocks, cam locations, head design, etc. They were done almost at the same time (more or less, Z10 first). And these are benzina engines, not at all like the Beta diesel 2 cyl.

Anyone seen one the Benzina Betas? I seem to recall one for sale in Calif about 2 years ago, but not sure which one it was, nor what happened to it.

Where did you find this image? Does the truck/vehicle exist?
Thanks.
