Update 10/12/09: 4 bids, $8650, reserve not met. Kind of a bargain if it could be gotten around this price and you are not looking to go crazy ‘investing’ in a restoration. I’d drive it in this shape.
Update 2009/08/13. This car is back on eBay. Some new and honest pictures showing the state of things have been added. I wonder what happened to the $9000 BIN?
Update 2009/07/14: Apparently eBay was just used to get someone to email the seller and say “I’ll give you x dollars for it” because the auction was ended early. I received a reply that $9000 was the buy it now price so I’ll assume that is what it sold for.
Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*05382, 1315*44373. This red 1958 Spider project is on eBay right now out of Connecticut. Auction is minimal at best with the seller not even bothering to roll it out enough to take a picture of the back, but from what can be seen in the pictures it looks like a pretty solid example.
Not a great car, not a bad car, just an above average project car needing detail attention or restoration. I think it would be best for the buyer who is looking to do a rolling restoration where they do most of the work. Head gasket is not a hard fix, but once you’re in there you may find the head needs attention which of course leads you to the edge of that slippery slope.
