Update 8/26/10: So, word is this car sold somewhere in the mid-$70K’s to a rich guy from Mexico. Rumor? I’ll try and find out.
Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*00724, 1315*40670. Gooding and Co. will be auctioning this 1956 Spider off at their Pebble Beach auction held August 14th and 15th. There is no reserve and the selling price is expected to be $70,000 – $90,000. Big money, but as the auction text states, this car is ‘striking’, ‘eligible’, ‘iconic’ and ‘superb’ -the full thesaurus treatment. I occurs to me that if this car makes money in the stated range it will be the most expensive production 750D recorded.
Well, if you got cash problems (ie too much cash) then get yourself to the auction and go for it. Giulietta’s this early don’t turn up that often -especially in no-compromises restored condition.
