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.
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 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!
Giulia Spider Veloce 10118*390183, 00536*20568 (not original). Fantasy Junction has this car listed on eBay right now. The car is in pretty good shape -with some details to sort out. The engine is simultaneously the best thing about the car -having been rebuilt by Conrad Stevenson, and the thing that will always keep this car from being a top of the market car.
Lovely in white as usual. Hood fit is very good. Trim all looks great -there’s a little bump in the drivers side leading edge of the bumper.
Giulia Spider Veloce 10118*390417, 00121*01950. On eBay right now out of Novi Michigan -a city I’ve never heard of except as the source of a lot of eBay auctions for Alfa stuff. This car needs everything and is not for the faint of heart -but will yield an uncommon, very usable and valuable car when done. Some guys like the last of a breed, with all upgrades like disk brakes and more CC’s -if you’re one of those guys, this is the Spider for you. Me? I like the early stuff with small tail lights and drum brakes.
Lot’s of metal has been replaced along the wheel arch and rocker -looks to me like it will need touching up. Doesn’t look too scary here. I think lowering the soft top would be an improvement on presentation.
Update 6/23/12: Sold for $7100.
Original post 5/23/12: 12 hours later: I just added a bunch of information at the end. Read it again if you found the first draft interesting.
I see a lot of talk about Veloce engines on the AlfaBB and the 750/101 Yahoo group. Some crusty pile that has a Veloce serial number is pulled out of a bog and the seller carpet bombs the lists looking for a Veloce engine as close to original number as possible. Old time hoarders are rewarded for moth balling these gems, but what will the future look like? I bring it up because there is a late 750 Veloce engine on eBay right now, number 1315*31525, that looks great and is receiving a lot of attention. Look at the picture and add it up. How much is enough to get it all at once?
Okay, so maybe it is a moth balled 40 years original low miles engine. Could be a bitsa, but who really cares? You’ve got a 58 Sprint/Spider Veloce that needs an engine: here it is. Nice headers!
Update 7/1/12: This car did pretty well, selling for very close to the initial BiN price. Anyone here the new owner??
Alfa Giulia 1600 Spider Veloce 10118*390692, 00121*02141. This car is on eBay right now from a seller who has brought us a few really good Veloce projects over the last few months. Car has had one owner, and an ill-advised repaint in red, but other than that looks to have been a fairly well cared for and respected member of the family. Seller is correct that a repaint in black would do wonders for this car. Unless there are hidden rabbit holes, the $48,500 buy it now seems only a tad high.
Car looks great. Those mirrors in that location are sort of like a bull-ring in the nose of an otherwise pretty girl, or an invitation for Godzilla to step on it. Door shut lines are very good. Note to self -take pictures of a red car on lush green grass.
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.
