Update 7/16/12: This car has appeared for sale on eBay in Europe out of Southern California from a Zero feedback seller. Scam? Hmmm.
Update 3/17/11: 75 bids resulted in $62,750. It’s no joke, game on for SS values!
Update 3/14/11: Bidding has reached $40,000 and reserve is met with 2 days to go. The suspense begins!
Giulia SS 10121*381379. This car is on eBay right now out of Texas. Bidding is at just shy of $30,000 with 4 days left as I write. This car is truly in ‘how you used to find them’ condition and frankly may be as much as $80,000 away from being a top money car, but for a capable DIY restorer that restoration number could get down to $40,000. Why do I mention this? See yesterdays post, which the seller references in their write up, a Giulietta SS sold for $140,000 at the Amelia Island auction. This is a great place to start, but it still has to be reduced to nuts, bolts and bare metal and built back out to get in the league that car is in. Then it has to find a buyer… Or it could be let alone, touched up, enjoyed and entered in the preservation class some day.
Looks a lot like the paint quality on my Sprint. Lots of checking etc. Unless you are like me and just want to tear it up on the backroads regardless of paint condition, you are going to have to take this car to bare metal.
Go for it kids! Be ready to spend $50K though.
