Artcurial Automobiles sur les Champs 4 – Giuliettas at auction

I can take a hint guys!  A few of you pointed me in the direction of Arcurial’s ‘Automobiles sur les Champs 4′ auction taking place in a few days where four Giuliettas will be sold.  Check it out!

Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*03793, 1315*03496.  Nice early Sprint Normale expected to make 24,000 – 30,000 Euro’s.  Probably the good deal of the four they are offering.

A lot of effort went into this car to make it look good.  Correct 155 series tires, great fit and finish all around.  Small headlamps are a big selling point for some collectors.

A correctly stamped original build plate.  Compare to the one the next Sprint wears.

Giulietta Sprint 10106*155993, 00106*00156.  A pretty clean example of a late Sprint Veloce with a sales estimate of 35,000 – 50,000 Euro’s.  Doable price.

Better black out that license plate out or the guy you stole it from might recognize it!!  Looks like a good one to me.  Bumper slightly crooked? 

A positive ID -well, sort of.  This is a repro plate stamped in the wrong font -but the engine and chassis numbers are prominently displayed elsewhere.

Giulietta Spider 1495*06301. Listed as a Veloce on the auction site, but not listed as such by d’Amico and Tabucchi.  Estimate is 33,000 Euro’s.  Veloce vs. not Veloce doesn’t really matter as this car is so far removed from being an original car.

How they look when they’ve been a race car for a while.  What’s up with the rocker panel in the back corner?  Original hard top?

No “F”.  I like how they tend to keep the vin legible on European cars.  I see a lot in the states where the vin is unreadable due to paint build up.

Giulietta Spider 10103*11680. A driver condition Spider expected to bring 25,000 – 35,000 Euro’s.  A bit optimistic if you ask me.  Lot’s isn’t quite right, but it should be a good driver with dual Webers from a later 1600!

They always look good -despite 165 series tires.  Suspension is a bit high in the front.  Silly to put 105 series wheel center cap ‘sombrero’s’ on a 750 or 101. Looks very nice though!

105 series 1600?  Probably because it was easier…

  1. The rocker panel on the white Spider…looks like it’s right downstream from the exhaust outlet; covered in carbon! Might be that the rocker itself is fine, but it’s hard to tell from this photo.
