Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*05931, 1315*05350. This Sprint was posted for sale on the Alfa BB a few days ago out of Eau Claire Wisconsin. As can be seen from the pictures it’s a big project but the $5000 obo asking price is reasonable considering the matching numbers and state of the engine. I was tempted myself by this but then I thought about my soon to be departed SS’s and vow to only get into ‘easy’ projects and, well, here it is for someone else to go for.
This treatment reminds me of Market 228 Sprint -either it’s how they come out when a bondo mask is applied, or the same artist at work. But… it comes with a spare nose for grafting purposes. Yea… looks scary but it’s on wheels and lots of stuff is in place.
Some bondo scabs to pick at. Surface rust is not a big deal but there are some underside shots and there is metal needing replacement -mainly in the supports connecting the rockers to the inner frame rails and the trunk corners. I see a Borrani wheel.
Tail lights are present. This is similar to that good powder blue gray you see on a lot of lightweights. Trunk lid fits okay. Not too rusty back here. Car comes with a rear window but no rubber or trim. A seller on the BB has the trim.
The big problem with this car -in addition to needing $15K worth of work, is that if you don’t see a part on the car -it’s not included, which means there’s lots to track down. I kind of like the thrill of the hunt myself, but as I get deeper into middle age, I appreciate more and more having things right from the start.
Quite a little string of series 1 Sprint projects the last couple of weeks. I guess there is hope for me after all!
