2600 Sprint 10602*824960, 00601. This 2600 Sprint is hanging out next to a 1900 Berlina at Fantasy Junction right now. I went and saw it in person and it really is as nice as it looks in pictures. The 2600 Sprint I listed recently was a pretty good deal at $23,500, since it’s got to be more than 65% of the car this is at $55,000. The more I look at these, the more I think another 2600 Sprint might be on my reality based top 10 list, near the Montreal.
There is an air of 60’s American car about these -maybe it’s the size and lots of horizontal bars in the grill. Note how skinny the tires are! Very clean example.
The rear fender swoosh recalls the front SS fender swoosh -squared of back half of the opening and all. The finish on these is amazing -very tight shut lines and superb trim fit. Anyone know who penned the design at Bertone? Has a lot of the styling cues I generally associate with Scaglione.
Note the similarity of the recessed tail to the SS, and the similarity of the tail lights to SZ units. A very restrained styling effort.
Those seats ate Fat! I like the light gray carpet. Door panel looks very modern -a lot like those found on 70’s Berlina’s. Gauges and steering wheel are very similar to SS and SZ.
What’s the story with the greenish-silver valve cover? The stock air plumbing in these is very sophisticated. I think these cars would be worth more and be more highly regarded if they had originally shipped with Weber DCOE’s. I don’t have a problem with these Solex’s, but these cars really wake up when correctly converted to Weber’s.
I am looking into buying a new daily driver -maybe I should get one of these…
