Update 4/16/13: They all show up eventually it seems and this fellow is no exception -find it here on eBay. Car body is described as having been restored in the Czech Republic, the mechanicals in Germany. I suspect the owner handled a lot of the little details that would eat up hundreds of paid hours. I can’t really comment on the asking price -I imagine the seller has quite a bit in it to have taken it to this level. I am quite taken by this color -maybe a good choice for my Sprint. Very very nice. I need one of these front plate brackets. Continue reading
Update: Thanks Greig for straightening the numbers out for me -I was going off the top of my head when I said 06011 -should be 06611. So yes, the seller has their numbers wrong… including the price
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*
06035, (was) 1315*05570. This car is listed on Craigslist out of Brooklyn, NY. It looks like a nice enough car and all, but has some drawbacks… especially at this price. On a side note, it’s the earliest second series body style Sprint I’ve seen. So we know 06011 06611 was a series 1 and now 06035 is a series 2 -neat! ”The only one in the world with this perfection.”
It certainly looks nice here. Has a GTV era Bertone badge on the lower front fender and no rocker trims. Cute little fog/driving lights. 14″ (or are they 13″) rims from a ?. Left and right grills look painted. I do like the white.
Update 12/12/12: A reader has commented that this car has sold for $42,000 and another reminded me that the Craigslist price was $18,000 obo. Such a deal!
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*09141, 1315*07630. Cosmopolitan Motors appears to have been the ones who picked up this car that was sold out of an estate sale a while back for $20,000 OBO. A few guys who I correspond with on occasion were trying to buy it so I looked at pictures of it a few times back then – unfortunately I didn’t save any. Looks like a really nice original-ish car. I wonder what the current asking is?? Thanks for sending me this Zen.
One could definitely do worse than this as Sprints go. Has Autorouche (sp?) headlights same as Jeff has on his Giulia SS. Hood fits very very well.
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!
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.
Giulietta Sprint 750B 493*06395, 1315*05812 & 00112*15344. This car appears to be offered by ReOriginal’s on eBay out of Livingston TX. Car is very much where the project I am currently working on is -lots to do! Paint is 10 years old but shines, interior work looks pretty good and it comes with an extra engine. No mention is made whether all the trim etc comes with the car. This is a rare car in that it’s one of the last 750B Normale’s -the last 200 750 ‘eyebrow’ grill Sprints were Veloce’s.
But do the original parts include bumper, ‘eyebrow’ grills, headlights with rings, hood center strip and front center grill? Looks pretty nice here. You can buy those bumper bracket trim bits new from several vendors.
Update 7/1/12: Why didn’t I buy this !?!?
Giulietta Sprint 750B. This car is on eBay right now out of Alamo Ca from a classic car dealer who seems to have set up shop there recently. Alamo is an old, affluent town near me and probably home to a lot of good cars like this waiting to be unearthed. This car has the 7″ lights, the first series body style and is not a Veloce so it’s vin number is in a pretty limited range. I asked the seller if the Bertone body number was intact -will report what they say. How do you register a car with no vin? Not sure.
One wonders where it was hiding. Body looks great on the outside. Trim isn’t too bad for a rough project. I like it!
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*05731, 1315*05212, Bertone body 655119. There has been keen interest on my site without me writing about this if click thru’s from a comment to the ad are any indication! Several correspondents have reported it’s availability and finally, here I am getting a post about it up. The car is nicely finished, with only a few incorrect details that can easily be rectified. I like a Sprint in silver with red interior -looks just like a car I have pictures of from a guy in Sacramento circa 1990.
Looks phenomenal from this angle, with nice even paint, over a tight fitting body and precisely fitted trim. These pictures are very artful, but not great for assaying the quality of the specimen.
Giulietta Sprint 750B. Henrik sent me a link to this car a couple of days ago. Car is in Bulgaria and exhibits all the usual characteristics of an older car that’s been kept on the road through a combination of the clever application of incorrect parts as needed, and changes made to suit the tastes of the owner -a lot like the cars that come out of Mexico or South America. No vin number is stated, but if it’s a 1954, it must be between 1493.00011 and 00023 according to Fusi, or ‘somewhere in that neighborhood’ if other known chassis numbers from this era are any indication. If anyone knows the chassis number, let me know!
Body looks pretty good. Has the small headlights . Is that a ‘short’ windshield? Wheels look like Fiat or some eastern block equivalent. Wipers look modern.
Update 2/1/12: Body appears to have sold for $3800 -this didn’t include much of anything to build the car out.
Update 11/19/11: This one is back on eBay. Seller will ‘part it out in 7 days’ if it doesn’t sell.
It’s a drag all the way around. Car has had a lot of work done to a reasonable standard -that’s how they usually look after welding -it’s the skimming/undercoating/grinding/seam-sealer and paint that makes it look good. Seller probably has X amount of hours, 100 I’d guess, probably paid $2500-3500 for the car before they started working on it, and they could have as much as $3-4000 in parts in it. I think they work on these cars for a living, so they really need to not put themselves out of business selling this car, so they need a certain minimum amount. If they keep working on it and it fails to sell, it gets more complicated since they are more $ into it. This is why you don’t start a project like this unless you can finish it -you’ll never break even.
Update 9/11/11: See? Include all the parts, sell the kit. etc just like I said. Look at that, might actually sell. My old hood latch -well, actually Aaron’s, is in the last picture. Small world.
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*08650. This car is on eBay right now out of southern California. 3 days to go, $1000 opening bid and no bidders doesn’t bode well for it so far. I think the problem here is that the small parts are not included in the auction -available for an additional $5000 to the buyer of the car and while a lot of metal work has been completed, there is more to do. These leave it incomplete in many ways. I empathize with the seller who has invested a lot of time and energy gathering parts -a few from my eBay sales even -but this is the hardest type of car to sell.
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493.07103. This car is on Craigslist out of Pittsburgh PA. It’s rough -really rough, and incomplete, and rusty. Was raced SCCA production G. This will probably be the cheapest Sprint of 2012…
Sprints always look optimistic to me, something about the shape of the grill openings or shape of the headlight area. Does it come with doors?
Update 1/14/12: This car has turned up in Australia with an asking price of $32,500 or about $33,400 US. I also got a tip that it was available in Southern California, but apparently, it’s an old link. The seller from 8/2010 confirmed it’s in Australia.
You don’t see this angle often unless you or your neighbor has a Sprint and you have a second story balcony overlooking the parking area. I want a first series Sprint project. Maybe after the 750D project that’s after the Glas GT project.
Update 1/12/12: I have it on good word that this car has been sold.
Update 1/7/12: The time they are a changin’ for our favorite little coupe. Just 18 months ago this 750B Sprint 08689 struggled to reach $25,000 on eBay, and now, today it is listed for $64,500 by Fantasy Junction with a big ‘Sale Pending’ sign under it. It looks amazing in the photos, and with a two liter engine should be a blast to drive, but this price for an Abnormale? I guess.
A little wide in the stance with these wire wheels. Attention to detail is impressive, as is the coat of shine.
