Update 5/6/2013: This charming candidate has found its way onto eBay. Already at $6600.
Exciting stuff when you take an unfamiliar road in your neighborhood and find something like this.
4/19/2013: Giulietta Spider 10103*11198. At the other end of the spectrum from yesterday’s Spider Veloce is this Spider out of the land of ahem. Asking price is $14,500. Looks like a real gem -especially the interior. It runs in a recently-freed-up-with-Marvel-Mystery-oil sort of way. Steering wheel is without cracks. Good times for all!
One of those what were they thinkings on the color, neglect etc. It is all there, but how much of it is usable.
Giulia Spider 1600 10123*392552. This green-on-green late Spider 1600 is on eBay right now out of New York. The condition is good over-all, if a bit unoriginal in the details. Metallic paint on Market 69‘s late Spider took quite a beating in the comments section on BringaTrailer (always a pleasure!), I wonder what they would think of this one. Carpet looks a bit like astro-turf!
A good looking car in this color -whether you like it or not. Kind of a big Healey or Aston type color. I’m hoping by now you all know which kind of wheels these are. Is the nose trim missing?
Update 4/25/2013: Strange as it may seem, this car has turned up for sale in Budapest. No price is quoted.
Update 3/2/13: Unsold for $24,500, but 4 offers.
Giulietta Spider 750D 02277, 1315*42184. This car is available on eBay out of Barto, PA from someone who knows the enlightening power of a lot of images -137 total! Needs a lot, but is complete and not too rusty. As the seller suggests, it could be used as is and slowly improved if that’s your thing.
Straight, unmolested and charming. A good cleaning and polishing would make this look really good. I’d be tempted to just remove the bumpers at this point.
Giulietta Spider 10104*09014, 1315*013829. This fellow is for sale now out of Omaha for $69,500. Body has had extensive reconstruction done to a high standard, with everything rebuilt or refreshed. Interior colors are not original, which some potential buyers may grumble about, but it looks pretty good. Prospective buyers should go check it out, as there are lots of tiny details that need to be inspected at this price point.
So far so good. Door fit is excellent. Trim all has a very nice shine. George expects me to comment on the Fergats but I wont. Continue reading
Giulia Spider 10123*372432. This car is available now from Luxury Motorcars in Sacramento Ca. I found it via CL. Car is shiny red, seems to have blacked out rockers as well as poorly applied black to engine compartment and underhood. All in all, maybe a decent buy at the $27,995 asking if there’s no or very little rust. Sacramento is dry…
Not too bad at all. Could be an excellent place to start. Paint looks great as does the trim, but these are not very good pictures. Continue reading
Giulia Spider 10123*392585, 00112*16232. This very late (last one is 392852) Spider is on eBay right now. With so many expensive siblings having been listed here over the last few days, this one, at the current bid of $8100 seems positively cheap. Parts are pretty well supported for these now and the engines are straight forward to put together so this shouldn’t be too difficult a proposition. I am wondering if guys have been saving Spiders for Spring -there are a lot of them available right now.
I’d run this cosmetically as-is except for the bare metal rocker and rusty wheels. Door and hood fit is good, front trim looks great. Continue reading
Giulia Spider 10123*375062, 00112*06976. This 1600 Spider is available now for $55,000 from Classic Investments. A trend the last few days: original cars for big money? Guess so. This car looks like it could be polished out a bit more and made to shine. A $55,000 car? Some sympathetic hands could probably get it to the level of Market 467 – and possibly the magic $80,000 range. This was good Veloce money moments ago!
Definitely a candidate for some OCD attention to detail. Yes, still my favorite color! Three shoe brake model.
Later that day: Asking price is $64,500. Big dough for a 10123?
Giulia Spider 1600 10123*379673, 00112*15263. Following in the footsteps of Market 467 is this extremely clean Spider. Presentation is fantastic -almost a little too much production on the pictures some might say, but refreshing compared to the dark low-res pictures I so frequently have to work with. No pictures of the underside are available and the engine compartment could use some detailing, but these may turn out to be trivialities based on what you find when you go look at it.
Hey Aaron, which region is LA? See what I mean about the production value of the pictures? This isn’t photoshopped into a sea of milk, it’s in a nice photo booth of sorts. Oh, and the general fit and finish of the car looks fabulous. Anyone know this car? Continue reading
Giulia Spider 10123*373589, 00112*03357. Reader Larry hipped me to the sale of this car -at $80,000 probably the most expensive white 1600 Normale ever to sell…? It is a documented 28,779 mile car. It is beautiful. It has had a ton of very sympathetic work done. Check it out!
Another very compelling composition! I’d be more than happy to drive this around.
Update 4/20/13: Hard to argue with the same result twice.
Update 3/31/13: This car has turned up on eBay again. Although it has been 14 months since it was listed, the same pictures are being used. I don’t think the market for a Spider like this has moved up much, so I suspect a similar result to the last time. I like the last line of the ebay description: “Look close, see the reserve? See the buy it now? I didn’t think so, there is NOT a buy it now, and the reserve is private. That’s how I thought it worked. I am an honest guy, selling an honest car, running this AUCTION honestly. I don’t want to play any games. Thank you.” I’m not sure how effective coming across as prickly is as a first impression, but then the notion of an ‘online persona’ is generally accepted.
Update 1/9/12: $15,101 is the sale price after 5 bids. That’s pretty solid money.
Giulietta Spider 10104*09537. This Spider is on eBay out of New York with a starting bid of $8,000. Condition is pretty reasonable as the start of a light ‘run it as is’ type project. Seller says it doesn’t run currently and has had some floor repairs. It comes with a hardtop that is one of the made in California FiberFab (??) type. I like the license plate!
It really doesn’t look bad. It could be the basis of a decent driver without much fuss. The engines can always be made to run, but will probably require a minor overhaul. I like them without the grill ‘eyebrows’..
Update 3/25/13: Hard to believe it, but this is the same car after several years of restoration work. Bravo! It can be done.
Great work has been accomplished on this car. I think this started out as one of those borderline hopeless projects.
Update12/2/08: This car ended at $4606, reserve not met. I predicted $4500 so I’d be the big winner on The Price is Right and win my choice of a brand new Ford Escort wagon, a Mercury Sable or a kick in the head by a steel-toed boot. Do I get a shot of Whiskey first? I digress… If I was the seller I’d be willing to let this car go to the high bidder for the end bid if they were willing. Of course they probably paid $7000 for it, thinking it was super rare and valuable but not taking the nonexistant economy into account. Look for the follow up.
Giulietta Spider AR1495*11804. This car is available right now on eBay out of Medfield MA. Fusi lists this car as a 10103 series 1960 Spider, that year production ending with car 11900. This car would be the perfect companion piece to the rusty Sprint that was the subject of Market #58 both needing extensive rust repair and well… everything else.
I have a great idea, I’ll do an experiment to see what 20 years under a blue tarp in a cold wet climate will do to a car, and not just any car, I’ll find a really clean Alfa Spider. This is truly sad. Note that all the trim, with the exception of one headlight ring, is present and straight.
Update 2/2/13: Another no sale.
Update 1/16/13: Someone has had a little work done. Boy -they shoulda painted the wheels bright red while they were at it. I still think it’s a pretty reasonable start to that early Spider 750 project you’ve been contemplating. See it on eBay now!
Update 12/12/12: A little better than last time. Maybe eBay is not the right outlet for this car?
