Update 7/1/12: This car did pretty well, selling for very close to the initial BiN price. Anyone here the new owner??
Alfa Giulia 1600 Spider Veloce 10118*390692, 00121*02141. This car is on eBay right now from a seller who has brought us a few really good Veloce projects over the last few months. Car has had one owner, and an ill-advised repaint in red, but other than that looks to have been a fairly well cared for and respected member of the family. Seller is correct that a repaint in black would do wonders for this car. Unless there are hidden rabbit holes, the $48,500 buy it now seems only a tad high.
Car looks great. Those mirrors in that location are sort of like a bull-ring in the nose of an otherwise pretty girl, or an invitation for Godzilla to step on it. Door shut lines are very good. Note to self -take pictures of a red car on lush green grass.
What do you do with an antennae like that? This side looks great too. I bet there are 65 Alfa vanity plates in every state that does vanity plates.
Wow! Really nice. Gauges are nice and clean. Steering wheel looks fantastic. I wouldn’t change a thing. Is the rear view adjusted to look down the passengers blouse?
Just right. I’d come up with a plan to retain the patina yet seal the surface rust. Them’s flares clipped up like bullets in the upper left corner of the picture.
Further evidence that late 101 Veloce’s got the 105 style non-tapered intake manifold? Looks like it did way back then. Nicely left alone. Aren’t these narrow blade ‘Euro’ fans supposed to be good for a HP or two?
In the grand pecking order of 750/101 cars, these are of fairly limited production (at just over 1000), have great drive-ability (disk brakes, 5 speed, plenty of power etc, basically a convertible Giulia Super) and alluring looks. I could see the great over-washed embracing these in a big way -I know I hope to!
