Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*05731, 1315*05212, Bertone body 655119. There has been keen interest on my site without me writing about this if click thru’s from a comment to the ad are any indication! Several correspondents have reported it’s availability and finally, here I am getting a post about it up. The car is nicely finished, with only a few incorrect details that can easily be rectified. I like a Sprint in silver with red interior -looks just like a car I have pictures of from a guy in Sacramento circa 1990.
Looks phenomenal from this angle, with nice even paint, over a tight fitting body and precisely fitted trim. These pictures are very artful, but not great for assaying the quality of the specimen.
I like these tail lights better than the common Lucas ovals. The twilight blue reflected of the silver paint show the Sprint to be a curvier beast than you usually think. Bumper looks to be a later item with the light holes filled.
Trunk mat in red is a bit garish for my eyes. Spare? Jack? Tools?
Steering wheel looks good -I prefer the originals though. Tidy interior, well detailed and presented.
Car has the high beam switch on the steering column stalk. I wonder if the seat centers are cloth or vinyl? Lots of red in effect.
Red under-hood mat doesn’t do it for me, but is simple to rectify if the new owner so desires. Finding the retaining spars and light are a little harder. That’s the same side mirror my old Fiat had.
Weird ghastly light emanating from the headers. Looks alright under here. A prospective buyer will want some detailed daylight shots to judge.
This car is a basically complete, matching numbers, tastefully appointed turn-key example for just under $50,000. There is room for improvement -though nothing major needs doing. Seems like a pretty good deal compared to the price of one of these in project form these days when added to the cost of a driver grade restoration.
