Market 516: Spider Veloce 05642 rough racer project

Giulietta Spider Veloce 750F 1495*05642.  Available now from BHCC and listed on eBay.  For a minute I thought it was this car, but no.  Is $19,000 as I type.  Worth probably $100,000 all correct and redone.  I looked it up in the Veloce list and sure enough, this vin started life as a Veloce.  Ad claims it’s matching numbers, but the engine looks more 101 than 750.  It’s possible, but, well, it’s a lot of work to get a 101 1300 head to work on a 750 block.

01

Vroom, it certainly looks to have been built for speed.  Headlight fillers appear to be cut down hub caps.  Bumper mount holes were brazed over.  Good color combo.

Lack of tail light tim rings is charming.  Side exit exhaust.  At one point this is all you had to do to go racing.  Really.

39

Horn button is incorrect.  Gauge inserts are slightly yellowed.  Rear view needs work.  Patina on door panels is excessive.

49

May have been born red.  Really not too bad from a rust perspective.

53

Looks 101 1300 to me.  Marelli regulator.  Where is that intake hose going?!?!

  1. Hi there just following up on the sprint supposedly in Indonesia, it turns out to be the same car and pictures used when it sold a year or so back (in the states?) and is currently being restored now. So a good old fashioned scam. I sent the photo to my brother in the UK who was quite keen however one of his friends did a bit of digging and saved him some heart-ache!! I enjoy your emails keep up the good work!!

    Kind regards

  2. As mentioned previous email cheers.
