Giulietta Spider 750F 1495*07012. This car is available now out of Bethel CT from a seller who seems to have a never ending supply of Alfa projects to offer up. This car is a late SWB 750 Veloce, a desire-able thing these days, and it looks to have most of the hard to get stuff under the hood. Asking price is $26,500. Not bad if the rust isn’t too crippling. Might be a good deal if you’ve been considering adding one of these to the fleet.
Flat black has the potential to hide a multitude of sins. Looks straight at least. I wonder if the trim is included. Note the engine in the back ground.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*06380. This car is available out of Connecticut on eBay. Engine is not original and it needs a lot of help in all the usual areas, except it doesn’t appear to be too rusty. Presence of original Pininfarina hardtop is unusual and will add a few thousand bucks to the result.
So far so goo. Some bits are missing but they are included. Headlights look like the original Carello units
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*04699, 1315*31090. This car is on eBay right now. Has it weaknesses and strengths. No surprise why it’s on eBay this particular week. Here’s an idea: you provide the captions, I’ll add them. Just say which picture your comment is for. Hint: B- or C+…
Scott’s intro: “Looks like a few of the cars that have come up for sale in the last year. Fix a few details and it would sell for a fair bit more.”
Craig’s overall: “She could use a little rust cleanup in the engine bay,a set of the green Cavis ignition wires, white plastic on the horn ring, seat repair, proper exhaust system, gauge inserts and a Veloce tach. Nothing to bad here I give her a B.”
Mike I says: “First photo. As per Mr Hamilton: nice complete trim. Good shut lines correct borrani wheels. Good stance, with shiny paint……”
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*04191. This car was on eBay for about 30 hours before being pulled and declared No Longer Available. Someone with a spare Veloce block must have made an unrefuseable offer. I guess we will have to keep waiting to see what a 750 Veloce goes for without a Veloce engine… Will the new owner please step forward!
A fine looking example, without much to be done. I like them like this -no worry driving them around. Hood spear gone? 165 series tires?
Update 7/21/12: No takers. Ended at $31,000. Reserve was probably closer to $40K.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*03454, 1315*32930 (unsure if original to car). This car is on eBay right now from a seller who frequently has interesting early Giulietta’s and Giulietta stuff. It’s a running driving car with a 1600 installed, but comes with a ’58 Veloce engine. It’s unclear whether it’s the original engine. Pictures are few, but it looks pretty good.
Looks pretty good. Hood fit is a bit off. No bumper over-riders. Good start or use as is!
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*06681, 1315*32551. Henrik made me aware of this project Spider available in the Netherlands from Strada e Corsa. No price is mentioned, nor is there any indication whether it has its original engine, but it looks okay if you’re into this sort of project where every nut bolt and washer needs attention. Have a look around the sellers website -lots of neat stuff!
White sure minimizes problems with body work. This car looks to have seen some abuse from parking or more likely time spent in a not very careful storage situation.
Update 3/28/12: This car did pretty well at $48223, and with some detailing may have gone higher.
3/13/12: Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*02029, 1315*30721. Instead of the usual busted up Spider I frequently get to write about, this nice early Spider Veloce, built in mid-1957 is on eBay right now. It’s a nice car -not necessarily correct to a fault, or finished to such a high standard you are afraid to drive it, but much better than average and mechanically sound. Car was originally black with red interior, but it’s currently Celeste with black -not very often that an Alfa is not original color and yet not redone in red. I hesitate to guess a value -just keep in mind one of the high priced cars of 2011 was a Celeste 1958 Spider Veloce in driver + condition.
This picture could be a lot better, but shows you what to expect to show up in a big cardboard box in a few weeks if you buy it. Good shut lines, good trim -ready to playboy it around Hollywood.
Update 4/6/12: Not sure being in Germany helped this car much, but someone bought it and an expensive process is probably being planned right now.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*04164. This car is on eBay out of Germany right now. It is rusty, incomplete, modified -basically right on the verge of viability -but it is a Veloce and does come with a lot of parts.
I think what happens is someone very enthusiastically tears a car apart -starts doing work, bills get bigger than expected, parts get misplaced and the next thing the car knows it’s covered in surface rust on eBay with a trunk full of parts. Note wheel arch in the rear has been modified -might be a bondo ramp -might be a beautiful sheet-metal sculpture.
Update 1/6/12: I feel like I’m watching a rocket take off at Cape Canaveral. This car has been listed by Colin’s Classic Cars in Milwaukee for $125,000. It looks like some work has been done to tighten it up but it didn’t seem to need anything the last time it sold. It remains stunning and it remains one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of writing about.
Can this car have appreciated $54,900 in 7 months? I hope we find out, and hold on to your hat if it has.
Original post 1/5/12: Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*05144, 1315*31935. Fantasy Junction has this car in stock right now for $79,500. Fit and finish look pretty good, but some non-originality including color combo, intake, steering wheel and transmission, may put off some buyers. The caretakers of this car mentioned in the ad are well known for quality work, so it should drive well. California black plates are a nice addition as always.
I’ve looked down this sidewalk a few times. Looks good up here. Hood fit is slightly biased toward the left side. You don’t see amber markers on 750′s very often.
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 750F 1495*02264, 1315*30740. Brad pointed out that this car just popped up on eBay out of Connecticut. As far as Spider Veloce projects goes, this car just about has it all -1957 build date, matching numbers, correct intake system including 40DCO3′s, seats with tracks, moderate rust, and overall decent completeness. It’s still a project, and as such maybe a road to ruin, but among projects, it’s not too bad.
Looks like a really good car -maybe wax it, vacuum the spiders out of the engine compartment, iron the carpets and away you go. Hood fit is really good.
