Update 10/20/09: 28 bidders resulted in a seling price of $13,500. This is very low for this car. A competitive 1300 engine alone is close to $10K to build. I wish I wasn’t paring down myself or I would have jumped in! Another Giulietta heads for Germany.
Update 10/14/09: This car is back on eBay. Previous buyer and now seller has a pretty comprehensive description and you now know exactly what you are getting. If nothing else, the auction is worth a visit to see some vintage pictures of it in action. I wonder what has been done to the engine? Cams? Big valves? Look for a solid end price this time.
Giulietta Spider Race Car 10103 1495*11341. This car was on eBay briefly last week and ended BUY IT NOW on 5/22/09 for $12,000. Someone got an amazing deal or ripped off and I suspect the latter. If you know this car drop me a line.
The business. Light blue cam cover is pretty cool. One of the Italian builders I’ve seen before used blue cam covers. Barbi?
Another view of the no nonsense engine bay.
Fuel cell is placed low to keep the center of gravity as low as possible. I don’t think I’d leave the spare rim back there if I took this out on the track.
James Bond’s racing Giulietta?
While writing this I decided to hop over to Bring a Trailer to see if they featured this car and of course they beat me to it. For a good read check out the comments section. Sorry it didn’t work out Mark.
