Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*06721, 1315*32582. This car is listed on Anamera right now out of Torino Italy. Numbers match, body looks good, hard to find parts are present and no price is stated. Original color was light blue. Car is SWB and has vent windows, a combination that stirs a lot of folks up. I don’t see any evidence that it was reimported from USA but most of these cars ended up in the USA when new so it wouldn’t surprise me if it did too.
This is how you want to find them, dusty, together, on tires holding air and evenly aged. Hood and door fit are excellent. Who’s peeking out of the shop?
Rockers and associated trim look good, Wheels are Borrani’s. Yes short wheel base (SWB) and yes, vent windows. Get over it. Rusty Fiat hulks in the background look on enviously.
I think these are the European tail lights, most I’ve seen have the Lucas ovals. No evidence of rust in the battery area -it usually bubbles through to the outside.
Very solid floor. When they painted this car red they did a thorough job. Dash edging looks good.
The good stuff. Nice you don’t have to track these down. Water pipe is in one of the ‘misc parts’ pictures as is the plenum top and air box.
The numbers. When I first saw this I was sure I had seen this car before because of the chunk missing from the build plate but then…
I found this picture. I guess I was right that something in the engine compartment on 40DCO3 equiped cars can get loose or out of adjustment and rub the build plate.
The engine number. What – no engine mount? Hmmm.
Oh boy, if this was at a swap meet I’d charge that plenum top, air box and headers like a bull. Oil pick up is next to the crank and the sort used with the sheet metal Veloce oil pan.
I am happy to see the well of Spider Veloce projects has not run dry -three of my last six market reports have been 1300 Spider Veloce’s. I bet this car is 25000 Euro’s or more and will find a happy new home quickly and be ready for the 100 year party in June (well maybe running and driving but not restored).
