Giulietta Sprint 750 B 1493*05372, 1315*04810. This car, for sale on Anamera for 13,500 Euro’s or about $19,500, actually sits in Ventura California. The body has been primered to even out its appearance and protect it, but anyone taking this on will want to take it down to bare metal and start over. I’m surprised it is still available considering the lack of rust.
I think primer was a good idea, gives it a look of being ‘almost there’. Door and hood shut lines look pretty good and the nose is in great shape. This car must have been very near the end of the small headlight run.
According to this picture the car was originally Celeste blue with dark blue interior -a great combo. That handle sticking out of the column is the shifter -usually touted as rare, but most of the early Sprints I’ve seen have it. Gauges actually look really good.

Matching number engine. Very nice body with excellent door gaps. Good solid floors and trunk pan. I have the front and rear bumpers, but no headlight assemblies or other exterior trim. Originally powder blue. A great car to restore. This would make a fantastic event car. Great chance to acquire a rare early column shift Sprint at a reasonable price.
VIN # 1493 05372
Motor # 1315 04810
(both numbers match alloy ID plate on firewall)
Car is located in California. I am an experienced exporter and I can arrange shipment to many European ports for $995 via Los Angeles. “
Price is strong considering the lack of some hard to find trim parts, but makes sense when the lack of rust is taken into account. It would be a good car to combine with a rusty but complete parts car- but that assumes someone would find any early Sprint, no matter how bad, a parts car. I’ve seen some really rusty cars repaired, and repaired well, especially in Europe.
