Update 4/16/09: Wow! $18,701 with 47 bidders. That is a very very strong result. I think this result comes from the market trend over the last few years to add extra value to really good original, as found, un-molested, etc honest cars that a collector or skilled restorer salivates over as basis for concours restoration starting points. Look for a flood of auctions to ride this auctions coat-tails.
Update 4/11/09: Link fixed! Sorry about that.
Giulietta Sprint 10105 1493*21140. Available now on eBay is this rather handsome devil, fresh out of long term storage in a collection and looking for action, or at least a new owner with the pocket book or skills to put it back on the road. Seller sold the the two tone SS that was on eBay last week and by the sound of things will have more Alfa’s for sale in the coming days.

More enviable patina. I wouldn’t be surprised if the original seat upholstery is under the black covers. It’s cheaper and easier to throw a cover over the existing seat covers than make fully new ones.
Very nice car indeed. If the subject of market 15 is worth $15,100, surely this car is. Look for a strong result from this auction and hopefully it will remain in CA so the plates can be maintained. Thankfully I have my own contender in the original black plate Sprint arena and its engine is rebuilt!
