Giulia Sprint Special 10121*380642. While perusing their garden of arcane delights I found this announcement on Anamera of Coys intent to auction this Padova Italy based car. Estimated selling price is 38,000 Euro’s or $56,700 of our recently depressed US dollars. I would call this near retail for a nice SS that is not really perfect but doesn’t have much in the way of wants.
It’s always tough to judge these cars because even the slightest deviation from a perfectly head on picture makes them look a little asymetric. Drivers side corner of this car looks ever so slightly lower than passenger corner and all it takes to cause this is an odd reflction. It’s all part of the hand made charm. Bright work is all present and pretty good, though I would guess the headlights are mismatched in some way -whether age or brand. Where in Italy is GR?
This car looks very low front and rear. The lip of the rims is under the fender edge front and back. I suppose it must also be tight or it would be rubbing all over the place. Red for an SS has grown on me more and more. I don’t really see anything to fault here.
I don’t have any proof, but I think that this car would have had the tapered intake manifold (#380456, 380459, 380473 and 380784 all do). Ignition wires are all over the place, red valve cover is typical, ducting is threadbare and all in all it’s a little under detailed which means it probably runs great so no one ever gets under the hood except to check the oil and to take a picture to sell it.
The estimate is all the money for this car, hopefully Coys will announce the result. I really do need to get on with it and fix my SS. Somebody please take my 69 GTV away!
