Market 163: Interim Spider racer project

Update 12/5/09: This car sold for $5000 even.  Seemingly the new norm for incomplete unremarkable Giulietta Spider rollers.

Giulietta Spider 1495*09110.  This car is on eBay right now from a seller in the north east US who seems to have a lot of Giulietta stuff in their barn.  This car is said to have been a long time race car, but seems to only be stickers, stripes and a roll bar away from being your usual remainder of a parted out Spider- very solid and rust free remainder I should add.

spider 09110 sideAgain, lower than an engineless car usually sits.  Wheels all look to be Fergats.  These cars look great in profile without a windscreen -you can really see the neat shape of the gauge cluster housing.

Lot’s of these Spider rollers have gone through eBay lately and $3500 – $6000 seems to be the range.  As a basis for a restoration a car like this would be frustrating, needing endless difficult to find and expensive parts to be sourced.  Put a 2 liter in it and do dough-nuts in your local Wallmart parking lot afterhours.

Another, from the same seller.

And another.

And a nice one.
