Giulietta Sprint Veloce 750E 07987. I would be very interested in this car on my local Craigslist if I didn’t already have 5 car projects, a 2 year old son and a business that is about to launch. Car is complete in most of the ways that count except the engine is not matching. Seller is looking to get something in the low to mid teens for it. A good deal I think and probably a car I will regret passing on someday, but so it goes.
You were just complaining about how you never see Veloce projects anymore right?
JP in Belgium has this car for sale. Contact him if you’re interested!
“Early 750D Spider shell, it is most certainly a ’56 model and one of the first 1000 made, given that it has a ribbed scuttle with the half moon recess for the back of the air filter can.
The car took a hit on the left front fender & left front wheel, hard enough to put a small kink into the lower chassis rail and to crunch the left front fender far enough to crease the left edge of the bonnet. The left headlight pod was also flattened. We presume the VIN was subsequently cut out and grafted into another car along with all the bits to keep the owner ‘rolling’ without troubling the authorities…..
Owner has a spare left front fender & nose from a donor car, enough to replace the damaged panels. The lower chassis rail can be straightened by a competent body man. The tricky part will be the missing VIN number, but the rest of the body shell is still in good condition,
Dry stored in a warehouse in Belgium. The early 750D Spider shell is looking for a new owner who is willing to tackle the project. Images here.
Information: please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Asking price: 4000 € ono “
Update: I got a huge response to this and have been too busy to respond to all. How does $360 shipped to continental US sound? First to come is first served!
I was rooting around looking for some brake parts and came across a Veloce Marelli distributor complete with new points, rotor and cap that I had been saving for a rainy day (when it was raining a Veloce my way). Anyone out there looking for one? Drop me a line. All proceeds go to getting my Spider on the road. I’ll post a picture tomorrow…
Bushings feel decent.
Giulia Sprint Speciale 10121*381030, 00121*00578. This rare RHD SS will be auctioned by Silverstone on February 22nd. It’s a clean example if the pictures tell the truth. I’m not sure why they are calling a mid-64 built car a 1967, but can speculate that it might have taken some time to go from Bertone to the RHD conversion folks and then to a dealer. 3 years? I suppose it could have been a late 64 car sold in early 67. Anyhow.
I like a good picture. This is the view you get when you look up mid stoop after you drop your keys on a wet morning while approaching it to go motoring. Description says it saw a bare metal respray recently.
Update 2/5/14: This is the car I referred to in the write up of the super rusted out Sprint a few days ago. Get that and this and you would have the basis for a doable project.
Update 2/1/12: Body appears to have sold for $3800 -this didn’t include much of anything to build the car out. Continue reading
Update hours later: At $13,500 it suddenly seems a deal! Anyone here buy this?
I admit, I missed a good write up.
Giulia Spider 10123*372516. This car is on eBay out of Carlsbad -near San Diego- from Cavallo, seller of used exotics and mixed bag Craigslist find type cars. Seller describes it as a “Barn Find”. I’m not sure what the fascination is with putting phrases in quotes is… I would have thought putting barn find in quotes would make someone think it’s sort of like a barn find but not really a barn find. That’s why the double quotes… I’m quoting their unnecessary quotes. If they were to write a rebuttal, would they use something like is “”"Barn Find”"” when quoting me? Sorry – it’s early, the sun has yet to even slightly light my vertical stripe of the planet.
Hello sporty! Trim is all present and straight looking if a little bit dull. They state car was originally red, but the engine compartment is sending me white signals – I suppose it could be red under that white – but that’s a lot of work! Continue reading
Giulietta Sprint 10102. Brian, who occasionally sells very very nice Alfa’s pointed out that this car is available now from Beverly Hills Car Club. BHCC seems to have a knack for turning up rough project European Sports cars. I wonder if it has anything to do with their pervasive Google ad campaign I see whenever I use Gmail. The numbers stated for the chassis and engine don’t make any sense except that I suspect the chassis number reported “652701″ is actually part of the Bertone body number, and shorter by 1 digit than any other 101 Sprint Bertone number I have tracked. It’s rough, but get it together with the shell on eBay out of the SF Bay Area, and you might have something. Asking price of $8950 is a bit high, but as parts I suspect it could realize 70% of this.
This is one of the worst Still together Sprints I’ve ever sen. Must have found a good place to hide when the hide and seek game started.
