Update 5/24/10: Check out this picture of the 750F list in d’A & T. I would think it’s a Veloce. This car doesn’t make any sense to be $40K as a normale… more like $28k.
Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*05388, 1315*013679. This car is listed right now at Fantasy Junction for $39,500 and described as being a Veloce conversion but this chassis number is listed in d’Amico and Tabucchi as a 1958 Spider Veloce and I will assume they are correct.
Door and trunk lid fit is also good. I can’t tell the quality of the paint from pictures but it passes the 10 foot test. Jaan is listed as the mechanic for this car which is a good thing.
FJ likes these overhead shots and I do too. Back end looks great. Steering wheel is a later 101 item. Not the end of the world but $800 – $300 you can sell this one for if you decide to get all ‘period correct’ on this thing.
This is one of those cars where you have to have two columns to try and figure out if it’s worth the asking. In one column is the value of the stuff you have to add to make it a perfect $60,000 or so car -the result of that column says that it’s overpriced -maybe $5000 worth. The other column is where you start with zero and add up what you get that can see: 1958 Spider Veloce chassis with driver paint, functional interim 101 1300 engine, Veloce intake, good seats -you get the idea, and the functionality you get: running, driving, looking good etc, the result of that column says the price here is about right. I guess it all depends on what you want it for.
