Update 2/21/12: This car has turned up on LA Craigslist for $24,500. Give Sergio a call! Thanks for the notice Anthony.
That rear view mirror is STILL upside down. Good luck.
Update 10/27/11: Statement by me: “I’m guessing it’s a late 60 – 62 Spider 10103 1300.” I was right -one of the last 1300 Spiders -370324. Buy it now is reduced. Pictures are better -still has a 750 head and Miata seats. $29,000? Greig? Laurence? Definition of restoration discussion ensues.
A positive ID.
10/12/11: Giulietta Spider 1495*03690. This car is on eBay right now out of Salt Lake City. Seller claims it’s ‘nearing the end of the restoration’ -I think that might be a mis-statement. It can be yours buy it now for $32,000 – I don’t recommend that.
Smooth hood, vent windows -should be after about vin 09000. Paint looks as good as it usually does in small pictures. Whats the yellow thing in the marker light position?Well, it’s got vent windows on both sides! Front wheel here is a Borrani -the rest are Fergats. Details details…
Seller says the seats are Miata because the originals were ‘basket cases’. Everything looks tired. Rear view mirror is an SS or Sprint item and upside down. Dash cover is a 1600 item. Carpet looks -well, I’ll let George decide.
So what is to be made of this car? I’m guessing it’s a late 60 – 62 Spider 10103 1300. Engine hopefully is a 750 engine. I don’t know if a 750 head will bolt on a 101 engine but I doubt it. Incorrect either way. I can’t say is it’s recklessly or ingenuously misrepresented, but either way it’s a bitsa. Bid accordingly. Oh, and if you find out what the vin is, let me know.
