Update 9/7/10: This car sold for the buy it now price of $13,900 after 20 bids and a full run at auction -would’ve saved someone some trouble to just have gone for it right from the start.
Giulietta Spider 10103*171756, 00102*28201. After a mere 4 clicks (home, motors, used:alfa, this listing) from their homepage you can be looking at this car on eBay right now (or you can click on the link). It’s in Northridge California which makes me think it’s the same seller as the first who offered M213 on eBay. Buy it now is a probably realistic $13,900.
Don’t let the cops see this thing parked in a handicap spot unless it’s a spot for handicapped cars. Door and hood shut lines look about right. Yellow looks like the yellow used to ‘colorize’ black and white movies in the 80’s.
The Vin. Interestingly, I have 171757 on my register too. Note liberal application of electrical tape and cheese head screws. I have this theory that they went to phillips screws in about ’63.
This all looks pretty good besides the droopy dash upholstery. Why did they go to upholstered dash when they look so good on the early cars with painted top and wrinkle finish nosing? If I had a late car like this I’d just go earlier style and shrug my shoulders and say ‘right…’ when a guy like me said ‘hey! You dash is wrong.’
