1/4/13: I am pretty sure that this car, Lot #132, is the same as the car below and is being auctioned by Gooding & Company on Saturday, January 19th. Estimate is an aggressive $200,000 – $225,000. The transformation is remarkable. Would love to see it in person.
Proving history is point of view based.
3/17/11: Giulia SS 10121*381285. This car is available now from Beverly Hills Car Club for the reasonable seeming $38,500. It sold on eBay in late January for $26,500 out of Medfield, MA. In the weeks between it was treated to a bath, some vacuuming and polishing and some dents were minimized. Current seller doesn’t show any pictures of the rust in the rockers but if you look at the photo set linked to by the vin link will see it.
Is $38,500 too much for this car? Well, I honestly can’t say without seeing it in person. Prices are on the rise and if you could live with touching this car up, doing the rust repair and paint, and reupholstering a lot of the interior and reconditioning what needs it in the drive train, you might only spend another $25,000 which would put you in the low $60K’s -not too bad for an SS these days, and you get the luxury of spending that money bit by bit over a few years while you drive it. I know-$25,000 is dead cheap for rust repair and full repaint along with everything else I listed, but I’m just thinking driver quality blow-over -not full resto style.
