Giulia Spider Veloce 1600 AR390532, 00121*02129 This car is available right now from Fantasy Junction in Emeryville California -my local candy store. These 1600 Veloce’s are highly sought after, having lots of power and flexibility due to the Veloce spec 1600 shared with the Sprint Speciale, the legendary handling of the Alfa Spiders, great brakes and all the Veloce goodies. Survivor-ship of this rare model is pretty high if my register is any indication. Asking price is $68,500.
FJ has been using this location for years to take pictures. A visit to their showroom reveals walls of photographs going back a long time -back to when this car would have been $9000! Door fit is excellent. Line formed by the rocker trim and bumper wrap-arounds is perfect.
Sold new in California and still retains its’ black plate. This car probably sat beside the then-new Duetto on the showroom floor when purchased. One can only imagine the test drives and comparisons. “Can we interest you in this 2 year old TZ2?”.
Neat approach to speakers, unobtrusive -stylish even! There is a school of thought about the exhaust note being soundtrack enough, but I’ve never heard ‘Strange Fruit’ play out of my Sprints tail-pipe.
The engine compartment being black instead of body color is probably the biggest detractor here, but I understand. Put yourself in that moment when the body shop quoted you an extra $10K to strip the engine compartment and everything attached to the engine, paint it all, and HOPE to get it back together. Or get 3 cans of Krylon black…
The last one of these they sold was $31,500. Check it out.
