Update 9/28/09: 39 bidders managed to get it up to $10,100 but the reserve was not met. That price would have represented a good buy, heck, anything under about $15,000 would be a good buy to someone who can put it together from all those parts in the pictures. It costs the same amount and takes the same amount of time to restore a Normale versus a Veloce and the Veloce ends up worth nearly twice what the Normale is so there is no reason this car shouldn’t go for good money.
Giulia Spider Veloce 1600 10118*39018X. This 1964 one owner Spider is on eBay out of Milwakee Wisconsin right now. Seller has withheld the last number in the vin “for privacy”. This is sort of funny since for new vehicles the VIN is a requirement and 85%+ of old vehicles (Alfa’s at least) list their vin. Sounds like typical ingenuous internet paranoia to me.

Looks like they just sprayed right over anything that was on the floor boards. Seat track lowers are nice to have, though they don’t have the angled cut that Spiders usually have on the outers. Maybe set in backward?
This series of Giulia Spider was identified by Sports Car Market as being among 10 cars to watch since they were of the opinion that they would be appreciating. A car in this shape, with out rusty floors etc should do pretty well if the link to the parts included that my companies firewall blocks shows everything present and in fixable shape.
