Update 4/15/12: I might be crazy, but I would have sold this for $59,888. Really. That said, someone probably made an off-eBay deal for this.
Update 4/6/12: This car has turned up on eBay out of Connecticut. Bidding is fierce, rust is scary, but other than that it looks like a nice complete example to fix up -just be ready for a big bill from your body guy. Not sure it’s the same car as that from the Craigslist ad a few months ago? Look at the green New Jersey inspection sticker on the passenger side corner of the windshield.
Doesn’t look too ill in this picture. Grill has seen better days and the windshield trim is missing, but that’s it besides scruff.
Again, just looks like a faded SS in need of some light help to make it useable. This car wears Borrani wheels.
Tip of the iceberg. This will lead deep into the recesses of the car with lots of metal to replace.
Interestingly this is an 00121 1600 SS engine and the 00120 engine is included too. That’s a good $15K worth of SS engines. Looks complete and right too.
Reasonable white interior. Seats have been recovered. Pretty sure the thing below the dash in the center is an 8 track player. Has an earlier series speedometer.
One of the SS’s specifically prepared for the US market Tipo 10117. Another survivor comes out of the woodwork.
Update 2/24/12: I have had some emails about this car from interested parties who contacted the sellers. Apparently offers up to and potentially exceeding $50,000 have been received. I also hear it is probably pretty rusty where they rust.
Giulietta Sprint Speciale 10117*00242. Alex just sent me a text with a link to this car. I’m sure a mad scramble is in progress right now from all over the world. A complete, not too rusty example? No telling precisely from these pictures about the rust -but it does look to be all there.
Looks like one of those ran when parked examples. Hood fits well -might respond to soap and water.
Anyone know Jersey plates well enough to guess how long it’s been off the road? I think this will clean up we.. Is the dash white meaning this was a white car?
Someone tried to rub the paint out a little on the corner. Yep -there’s white visible in the interior.
Intake system looks original and complete from here -bodes well for the engine. Someone is VERY excitedly trying to buy this right now…
