Update 4/16/10: More pictures have surfaced (link is to a large Flickr set). This car needs a lot to bring it back and the fact that it hasn’t been snapped up by anyone who has gone and seen it in person tells me it’s very needy. Make a reasonable offer and wait?
Giulietta Sprint Veloce. In the for sale section at the website for the UK based Giulietta Register is a rare thing indeed -a project Sprint Veloce Lightweight! Car was apparently in some sort of fire and will require some more difficult than usual fabrication. If you’ve been looking for one as a project this may be it.
There is good and bad news about a car like this. The good being the bunch of parts that are the same as standard Giuliettas of its period, and of course the bad news is all the stuff that has to be fabricated from scratch.
There is no price mentioned in the advertisement but based on the $80k minimum for decent ones that can stretch in to the $200K region with the right provenance, one has to assume this car is not cheap. I’d go for it if I wasn’t up to my eyeballs in rusty, incomplete but ‘valuable when done’ Giuliettas.
