Market 481: Spider 750D 03235 project

Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*03235, 1315*43081. This car has been on eBay a few times recently , trying both the recently defunct ‘start low’ old school auction approach, the ‘this is what I want’ buy-it-now approach, and now the ‘call me if you want it’ BIN approach.  Car looks decent enough -needs everything except a lower 4″ metal transplant.  Great car for the aspiring 750D owner -I’ve seen, worked on, and written about much worse!

On the bright side, it’s not 1988 and you can actually get parts now.  They’re not as good as the ‘left-overs’ of 1988 you might have gotten from Alfa Ricambi, but they are available.  Door fits well, wheels need paint -you know the rest.

Yes indeed -that rack will go int he dumpster first.  Welding the holes won’t make you as crazy as you might think.

Floors look pretty good!

Some sadist decided to repaint a light blue car yellow so that 30 years later we would all be thinking about how we could endure almost any other original color engine compartment/ new color exterior combo.  Now we know why so many engine compartments end up black.

I exist!

$17,000 BIN?  $15,000 car?  $9,000 car?  You just have to want it, and the purchase price is immaterial compared to the process.

  1. I really like this car… I believe it should have an early tunnel case trans. I have 3216 and 3964 and both those cars are early tunnel case cars. This should go in your collection Matt!
    Can’t justify the cross country shipping…..

  2. You are right. If you want a 750 Giulietta Spider project this looks like a good one, solid cars are hard to find, looks like the important parts are there and the missing stuff you would buy new anyway. Looks like the guy had a couple of no pays on eBay, wanter’s who WISH they had the cash.

  3. this car is now in the UK and owned by me Lucky Escape Guys! needs new seals,trunk,outriggers no gearbox or transmission shaft or trans supports, no seat tracks,seat buckets shot, engine been raped inside, no starter,generator, lights, all the chrome dented or missing. Anything worth having on this car has been taken and stripped and some of it is crafty like the heater is in place but the motor has been taken ? $12,000 Mmmm saw me coming
