Update 2/5/14: This is the car I referred to in the write up of the super rusted out Sprint a few days ago. Get that and this and you would have the basis for a doable project.
Update 2/1/12: Body appears to have sold for $3800 -this didn’t include much of anything to build the car out.
Update 11/19/11: This one is back on eBay. Seller will ‘part it out in 7 days’ if it doesn’t sell.
It’s a drag all the way around. Car has had a lot of work done to a reasonable standard -that’s how they usually look after welding -it’s the skimming/undercoating/grinding/seam-sealer and paint that makes it look good. Seller probably has X amount of hours, 100 I’d guess, probably paid $2500-3500 for the car before they started working on it, and they could have as much as $3-4000 in parts in it. I think they work on these cars for a living, so they really need to not put themselves out of business selling this car, so they need a certain minimum amount. If they keep working on it and it fails to sell, it gets more complicated since they are more $ into it. This is why you don’t start a project like this unless you can finish it -you’ll never break even.
Update 9/11/11: See? Include all the parts, sell the kit. etc just like I said. Look at that, might actually sell. My old hood latch -well, actually Aaron’s, is in the last picture. Small world.
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*08650. This car is on eBay right now out of southern California. 3 days to go, $1000 opening bid and no bidders doesn’t bode well for it so far. I think the problem here is that the small parts are not included in the auction -available for an additional $5000 to the buyer of the car and while a lot of metal work has been completed, there is more to do. These leave it incomplete in many ways. I empathize with the seller who has invested a lot of time and energy gathering parts -a few from my eBay sales even -but this is the hardest type of car to sell.
If you’re in Southern California and in the market for a project Sprint -this might be a something you want to consider. Buying a car in this shape means you get to haggle quite a bit.
