Update 4/26/10: 29 bids and $12,200 resulted in a sale. Fair all the way around.
Giulia Spider Veloce 10118*390255, 00121*01757 & 10118*390245. These cars are on eBay right now as a package deal out of Ithaca New York from a seller who sounds very knowledgable and realistic about the condition of the cars. A little over 1000 of these late run 101 Spider Veloce’s were made, with engines in common with 1600 SS’s. Fusi says the engines should be tipo 00118 but no such engine exists. Values are strong for good ones, so a project is worth doing.
Trunk fit is very good. I never noticed how heavily badged these cars are with the script abopve the trunk latch and the ‘1600 Veloce’ in the corner. This car doesn’t look to have run into anything in it’s brief time on the road.
Road kill. A lot of the middle of the car is missing. I’d get this off the ground, maybe up on a palette rack. It’s not restorable today, but that may change -imagine if it was a lightweight Sprint Veloce or lownose SS. People would be lining up to spend money on it.
Most of the Spiders Alfa made through 1965 came to the US. I don’t think the well is going to dry up any time soon, but eventually it will…
