Update 1/14/12: This car has turned up in Australia with an asking price of $32,500 or about $33,400 US. I also got a tip that it was available in Southern California, but apparently, it’s an old link. The seller from 8/2010 confirmed it’s in Australia.
You don’t see this angle often unless you or your neighbor has a Sprint and you have a second story balcony overlooking the parking area. I want a first series Sprint project. Maybe after the 750D project that’s after the Glas GT project.
Original post 8/9/10: Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*01682, 1315*01758. Body # 651655. This car is available right now out of Japan for $22,000. A pretty good deal for a numbers matching small headlight early car. This car has the rare ‘rolled lip’ style early rims and was converted to floor shift from column shift -which supports my theory that column shift was common if not the norm in the early cars.
Amazing how similar and yet different the small headlight cars appear compared to the later cars. Makes it look bigger than it is. This looks like a nice solid car with good shut lines and accident free bodywork. The small headlight components are hard to find.
$22,000 is not a bad deal at all for this car. The celeste example out of Britain is quite expensive and I think these very early small headlight cars will overtake series 2 Veloce’s in value eventually. How much is shipping from Japan anyway?
