Update 3/27/12: This car sold for $1442 after 22 bids. A decent result for a rough looking example. Interest in these cars increases?
3/15/12: Glas 1700GT. First -pardon the non-Giulietta market post, but as I mentioned when I got my Glas GT, I plan on there being an occasional aside to the headlining act, and someone has to try and figure out what the market for these cars is. This car is on eBay out of Illinois. Looks to be too rusty to be a viable restoration candidate, but the sheet metal is ALL available and very inexpensive -too bad it’s as much work to weld up one of these as a Giulietta Sprint. There are no pictures of the engine -maybe they couldn’t get the hood open!
Pretty straight and complete looking. Shame about the door rust and, well, all the other rust too. Headlight rings are aluminum. Front bumper really makes the front end look a lot more complete than it looks without it.
Someone stole the tail lights. Would be interesting to see this car in person and get an idea how indicative this surface rust is of the condition of the underside.
Complete, but tore up!
These cars have a very interesting rear suspension set up. Differential looks pretty odd too. Underside of the car doesn’t seem too rusty. There is a license plate frame in the trunk with “Hayward” on it -maybe a California car? Note the two-into-one exhaust.
I’ll be surprised if this car breaks $1000.
