Market 211: Spider 750D in Florida

Update 4/26/10: $26,450 after 30 bids is a pretty good result for this car, but considering the originality I’d call it well bought. 

 Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*06116, 1315*44942. This car is on eBay right now out of Florida.   Bidding after a few hours has already reached $18,900 -not bad for an original looking car.  There are a lot of pictures on the Flickr set (the VIN is the link).

Looks like a good honest well cared for specimen.  Paint is tough to judge -it being white and all, but from everyone-elses perspective (you on the road) it looks good.

Simple Lucas tail lights.  Trunk lid fit is good, bumper and trim look excellent.  Suspension sits ‘right’.

The interior really tells the story; this is a very clean original car though I suspect the door panels would have been red originally.  Passenger seems to have made a bigger impression on their seat than the driver.

Yep, that’s a soft top and yep, this is why unless you’re caught out in some serious rain you leave it down.

There seems to be some white overspray in evidence and in one of the other pictures it looks like there have been some repairs.  Lots of surface rust on the mechanical stuff says it sat dormant for a long time.  Usually oil leaks keep the center support area well lubed and rust free.  This rust is not a big deal.

There it is, the original driver Spider of your dreams waiting for the intrepid purchaser to fly in and drive it home to LA or Seattle or wherever a car like this goes.  I know- Europe is more likely, but their having cash troubles too.  We’ll just have to wait and see.
