Market 239: Giulietta Spider 750D 05488

8/11/10: No more beating around the bush -the car has been listed for $35K ‘buy it now’ or ‘make offer’.  Throw an offer their way between the last high bid and the asking and maybe it can be yours.

8/10/10: 19 bids saw this car make $22,200 but the reserve was not met.  Seller says they have the correct seats which is a plus.  This car will probably be relisted and reach about the same high bid.  I’m beginning to think eBay is not really suited for cars like this.

Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*05488, 1315*44524. This car is on eBay right now out of South Carolina.  Condition is along the lines of well cared for drivers with some hidden blemishes and unoriginal parts -seats the most glaring feature in this category.

Hood fit is good, paint looks okay but not great.  Trim -especially bumpers is presentable but not excellent.  Just my kind of car!

Funny how these big headrests make it look like an early 70’s car.  Door shut line is very good.  Wheels are Borrani’s.  Very tidy car!

Trunk fits good.  Passenger side tail light looks a little crooked.

I wonder why they left the trunk floor in primer.  Chrome gas cap and well detailed hardware around the shock tops, prop and breather clamps is a good sign.  Check under the battery for rust.

Yellowed gauges actually look better than they should.  Steering wheel center is cracked and the wheel itself is probably in need of help under the sports wrap.  Very tidy though I must say.

Engine is running in this picture.  Not much overspray to be seen.  Well cared for and clean is the feeling I get from these pictures.

Lest there be any doubt as to who this guy really is…  I wonder if this car was originally white?

If you’re looking for a driver you can slowly improve to show quality status this might be the car for you as there are lots of little things that can be done on the cheap to really improve it except maybe getting the right seats in it.
