Market 62: Restored Giulia SS 380024 (still) on the block

Update 8/13/12: Still available.  Description says it was restored from bare metal by Carrozzeria Touring.  Price is now “upon request”.  Maybe a good car to bring to the US and try and sell at auction for a profit?

Update 2/13/09: This car is now listed on Anamera at 59000 Euro’s.  They have included a statement that the engine is an 00121.

Oops:  I confused this car with another.  This one was not (to my knowledge) restored by a German and didn’t benefit from a parts car that was sold for 50 Euro’s.  Sorry.

Original post 11/24/08: Giulia Sprint Speciale 10121*380024, 00121*00128.  This car is available now out of Italy from Luzzago.  Car was restored by a German Gentleman who is said to have had a parts car that he sold for 50 Euro’s when the project was done!

The condition of this car is very good  and Luzzago has several mid-restoration pictures to assure you that things were done right where the body is concerned.

giulia20160020ss20196420azzurra2002020wWhat can I say, it’s clean, it’s well put together and of high quality, but it is WAY to busy for my taste with three shades of blue, black, off white and silver/chrome.  This car would look GREAT with a red interior.

No price is stated on their website but this looks like a pretty high quality restoration, so I think 50,000 Euros is probably not far from the mark of what the seller is looking to get.  As for buyers the color combination interior to exterior and the wire wheels may turn some people off, but I could see some rich old guy surprising his wife with this car as a gift.

  1. I like that color, but combined with the interior that is a lot of powder! It would look amazing with a red or gray/dark-blue or something. This is picking nits tho – nice car…
