Update 4/23/2013: Seller contacted me to tell me the original block is included. I guess this mitigates some of the ‘original engine’ perceptions. Can perceptions be mitigated? Hmmm.
Giulietta Spider 10125*10115. This clean Spider is available through Hemmings right now. They seem to let their listings ride for months -probably to keep the overall site listing count from dipping below some minimum, so there’s no guarantee it’s still available, but a quick call to the seller should tell. The car is very clean and shiny, with compelling, although way too dark to reveal much of the details images. If you are in the market for an early LWB Spider Veloce and $99,500 doesn’t scare you off, you should book a trip to PA and go take it for a drive.
Nearly invisible door shut lines? Check. Borrani wheels? Check. 20 footer? Check. Car looks really good, but these images are too dark and too low resolution to be more than marginally useful. Enough to base a trip to PA on I guess.
Update 3/2/13: Seller pulled the auction making me think it either didn’t seem like it was going to recoup their investment if the no reserve auction was allowed to play out, or they sold it off eBay. Not sure which is more likely…
Update 2/9/13: This car is available again on eBay out of Santa Barbara from someone who knows their Alfa’s if the garage it’s in is any indication. I had this listed as 11337, but it’s 11332. Looks pretty good all cleaned up!
Scrappy. Just needs some work and a few rare parts like the firewall mounted air box.
Update 12/12/12: What are the chances this car is available now on Autotrader for $17,000? Not much I would bet. Thanks Mark for pointing this scam out!
Update 7/12: Car sold for a little over $60,000.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 10107*167647, 00106*01234. This car is on eBay right now out of Georgia by a reputable seller usually dealing in Maserati’s. The car is tidy, complete and functional and would likely suit the buyer looking for something they can use without worry and improve when the fit takes them.
Lovely. White suits the Spider very well. All the trim, fit and finish is nice. Sellers got a nice driveway!
Giulietta Sprint Veloce (?). I guess the title says it all. This car is available through Kajiji out of British Columbia for offers in the neighborhood of $30,000. The title makes me wonder about the owners involvement with the car. Still, a Sprint Veloce with a decent recent repaint and some new chrome is pretty interesting if the drive train is original.
I guess this answers the question of what you do with the extra little bit of red paint in the gun are answered. The tail pipe? Paint that shit red. The wheels? Them too! Big question is… is this a garage sale or what?
2011 saw more SS’s on the market than Sprint/Sprint Veloce’s -at least as far as my tracking went, and I didn’t really try to find SS’s more than Sprints. Seems odd, since there were 10X more Sprint’s made. If you look at the list below you will see very few first series 750B’s, no lightweights and only a couple non-lightweight Veloce’s changed hands -the bulk of the sales were 101 normale’s like mine. Of those a few made really decent money.
Market 287 was a Sprint in a sorry state out of Poland for $1000.
Market 325 was a 101 Sprint selling as a pair with a stepnose GTV, sold together for $3748 -I’ll give the Sprint the benefit of the doubt and say it sold for $2000.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 10125*10642.Alejandro made me aware that this car is available now out of Florida from a listing on the Alfa BB. It’s a US market Spider Veloce and would have had an 00106 series engine with 40DCOE’s rather than 40DCO3′s.
I like how pictures like this force you to look differently at something since it’s orientation is unusual. This nose looks pretty good. One would want to touch and knock on it for bondo, but they all seem to have it.
Giulietta Spider 10107 1495*07526. This car is available now from Jack L Hunt Automotive in San Rafael via Hemmings. Car is the odd combination of a transition 1300 Spider Veloce and a 1600 Normale engine. Seller says it comes with California Black Plates. Cool! Asking price is $24,500, only $74,500 cheaper than slightly younger sibling 07600 who made $99,000 at Amelia Island recently.
Great shut lines! Drivers door shuts as well. Nose is pretty good too.
Update 3/21/11: This car is now listed by the seller in Hemmings. Price has been reduced to $32,000. Not a bad deal!
Original post 8/25/10: Giulietta Spider Veloce 10107 1495*10201. This car is available now in the San Francisco Bay Area for $39,875. The seller has owned the car since 1985 and has been using it since. Engine in the car is not original and has been recently rebuilt but the original comes with the car.
Looks like a really nice patina on a well loved driver -the perfect compliment to my Sprint -alas I don’t have $40K burning a hole in my pocket…
Giulietta Spider Veloce 10107*170380. This car is on eBay right now and has been featured on Bringatrailer. Eduardo (seller) sent me a bunch of pictures you can see if you follow the vin link. Engine is a later 2 liter and a lot of modifications have been done that make it ineligible for most vintage race series, but with a few creature comforts added this would make a great event car. Email me of you can’t extract the sellers info from the above links.
Looks like it should for a rally/race car. Hood is a later Giulia 1600 item, no doubt used to help clear the 2 liter. The silver lines seen through the grills are the edges of a big radiator.
Update 10/6/10: Despite several long time Giulietta experts chiming in to say it wasn’t worth more than $500, the auction ended at $2850.55 after 4 bids. The condition of the drive train will dictate whether this is a good deal or not. I reckon a good 00106 block with all its original stuff in usable condition would go for about what this car went for.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 10125 1495*10189, 00106. This rusty shamble of a Spider is on eBay right now out of York, PA. Buy it now price is a reasonable $3500 considering the parts it will provide. With Spider Veloce’s regularly changing hands over $50K these days maybe it’s a viable project for some adventurous soul.
I like the custom crash bar. Lots of rust here. Is that a hard top for it in the background?
Update 7/26/10: This car is on eBay right now. I’m not sure if it’s the same seller as before -the listing says Florida and the car ships out of PA which is where it was when it was being sold on the BB. Either way -it looks like a pretty good place to start your Spider Veloce project.
Originally posted 4/6/2009: Giulietta Spider Veloce 10107*167587, Engine 00106*01197. This car is available right now on the AlfaBB our of Pennsylvania. No asking price is stated but it sounds like in the neighborhood of $20,000 is what the seller would like.
The ever popular ‘before’ picture. Looks pretty good from an accident damage and rust standpoint. This has the neat small tail lights with separate reflectors below them.
Update 1/28/10: A respectable 30 bidders made their play for this car and someone is taking it home for $21,100. I feel redundant saying it, but it’s likely headed for Europe, to be listed on some site there for 25,000 Euro’s or more. So it goes.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 10107*171715, 00106*00587. This car, an original California Black Plate car is on eBay out of Florida. Sounds like the usual ‘got it, started to take it apart and then got distracted’ scenario. Would be neat to see someone in California step up and reclaim one of our exports.
I would drop the engine back in, do the brakes, give it a polish and go. Front trim has great patina -keep it so.
