Update 10/14/10:Car sold for $23,995 after 21 bids -a good result.
Update 10/11/10: Seller has made the smart move of installing that missing headlight, took some new photos and relisted it. About 3 days to go and it’s $16,000 as I write.
Update 10/6/10: 23 bids were placed resulting in a high of $17,100 with reserve not met. I’m not surprised from either end -it’s too far from done to go for more and too much has been invested to let it go for probably less than low $20K’s.
Giulietta Spider 10103*167419, 00102*14739. I’m aware that to call a car a stalled project or endless restoration isn’t very helpful, especially considering it seems to be the norm for a project to go unfinished for years, whether a rusty backyard ‘someday’ car or that concours restoration that would be done if the correct ‘LOBO’ bolts could be found for mounting the steering box, in anycase, this car, on eBay now out of Indiana, is the odd car that despite good intentions and a trickle of resources over the years, seems to have moved nearly perpendicular to a normal restoration path… -a lot remains to be done and redone (sadly) but it has survived, is rust free and includes a lot of really well prepared parts to assemble to it.
This biscuit interior doesn’t look bad -carpet is funky -may just need gluing down or something. Steering column is red -too bad the new owner couldn’t move that paint to the glove box door. Steering wheel looks fab -gauges are average.
Here you go -snap it up… just wait a turn or two for the final price to come down some. All things considered this would be a rewarding project considering it runs and drives and has no visible rust.
