Giulia Spider Veloce 10118*390717. This car is on eBay right now out of New Mexico. It was restored once upon a time by Bobcor to a driver standard with an incorrect engine and some questionable parts combo’s. Asking price of nearly $40K is more in line with a correct, numbers matching car. A side note- Fusi lists these Spiders as having an engine with a 00118 prefix -there is no such thing- they came with the same engine as a Giulia SS -with a 00121 prefix.
Paint shows up well and the body lines around the shut lines are very good. Fergat wheel up front and Borrani out back is not a huge deal but speaks to a half-assed approach to things that would worry me.
Engine does not have a serial number on the plinth between the distributor and engine mount -someone on the AlfaBB theorized it is a GT Junior engine. Pity really, as the value in these cars over the normale’s is nearly erased without the correct engine and intake components. Looks nicely set up for what it’s worth.
Let the market decide on a car like this. Maybe the high bidder has an appropriate 00121 engine. Either way it’s a nice example to begin with.
