Update 2/2/10: 3 months, $800 worth of shipping, a $125 detail job and $75 worth of title transfer and this car is back on eBay, now out of Florida. The opening bid of $28,500 represents a hefty profit of $13,500 if my estimates are good, and if you buy it now for $39,800, the seller can take a few months off. I’ve said it before -I’m in the wrong business.
Giulia Spider 1600 10123*373358. This Spider sold on eBay recently for $14,000. Based on the uninspired auction description it sounds like the seller inherited the car and never thought or did much with it.

‘m never a fan of two tone like this but the presence of seats and seat tracks that are correct is a big deal. I think the steering wheel has a cover, which could be hiding something. All in all, not too bad.
Looking at the pictures, if it can be made roadworthy without much work someone got a decent deal.
