Update 7/26/10: 34 bids, $12,100 result. About right for this car. Hopefully on its way to a loving new home!
Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*03571, 1315*41225 (originally 43319). This black plate, early 1958 car is on eBay right now out of southern California. Original color looks to have been Celeste (light blue), a favorite of many on these early cars. Condition is as good as one could ask for in a starting point project car to fully restore.
This car reminds me a lot of the subject of Market 120. While this is a fantastic starting point restoration candidate -one should be tempted to leave it alone and just make it work for now. Nose bump is very pronounced on this car. Hood fits pretty good. Follow up pictures show some poor repairs in the lower areas of the nose but nothing horrible.
This is one of those cars that you wish would fall into your lap and when you get tired of waiting for that to happen you bite the bullet and buy it on eBay. Value? While it is very original and complete it’s needs are not cheap… we’ll see. It has a lot going for it.
