Giulietta Sprint Speciale 10120*00347. This car is available right now in Belgium from Marreyt-classics. It was assembled in France by Renault which means it has a glass brake fluid reservoir and a special build plate. It probably also has a town/country horn set up and would have had all yellow headlights.
This is meant to stabilize the air going over the wipers. Some people say its to keep them from rising up at speed, but I think it is to relieve stress at the mount pooints and to keep the blades from chaffing the dry glass. Note speaker in dash top.
Engine compartment could use a little clean up. The hose from plenum to airbox looks like it has been adapted from another car. Bosch injected Spider maybe? You can just see the glass brake fluid bottle and the regulator is the original Marelli item.
Here it is, the French build palte. Information includes the engine number (00700?). I’ve seen these for France (Renault), Mexico (Willys) and Germany (NSU). The result of what we call today ‘protectionist’ trade regulation. An import tax paid in jobs.
And the usual build plate. As you can see, no engine number in evidence, just the prefix. French plate provides interesting data point of original engine number. All three of these plates are riveted on this car where in the USA they are held down by screws.
Asking price is 44,ooo Euro’s, about $64,000. For that amount I’d like to see the engine compartment a little cleaner but that is not really an expensive endeavor so I don’t think it really affects the value. SS’s in this condition should hold their value nicely regardless what the rest of the market does since you just don’t find many like this.
