Update 8/10/09: 2 bidders, $51, reserve not met. I’d give the seller $100 for the front suspension components without hesistation. I have a feeling it will be a while before anyone decides to take this thing on. Hopefully some kind soul will keep it out of the rain until then.
Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*00808. Available out of San Rafael California on eBay right now is this project. Early number is a draw for some Giulietta lovers, especially since it gives admission to many events open to 57 and before cars. Doors, trunk and hood are included so $2500 buy it now is somewhat reasonable.
It may sound wishful, but you might get away with less welding on this car than on a lot of the rusty but complete and unhit cars that come up for sale. There has been an NOS nose panel for a 750 Spider on eBay a few times, get that and some patch panels from APE if they have them and then it’s a simple uphill trudge finding $10,000 worth of original parts to restore. What’s most remarkable is that this car was not scrapped. I am thinking survivorship of Giuliettas is fairly high if a car like this was saved.
