Market 526: Sprint 21711 Easy Driver?

Update December 1 2015: Sold!  A very reasonable price I think.  Maybe buyers were put off by the sellers ebay alias.  Testa is head no?

white sprint

Giulietta Sprint 10105 1493*21711, 00536*16757, 6511501.  This fellow is on eBay at the moment out of CT.  It runs and would drive with some brake work and probably tuning.  If I was looking to enter the market with something I could do some light work to and drive, while searching for parts before really digging into, this would be ideal.  It doesn’t look like anything is missing that would keep it off the road, and a lot of the trim bits can be had in repro. A reader has a complete engine for sale that would be ideal for this.  Check it out.

I want a white Sprint.  Actually was originally Iseo Blue… I want an Iseo blue Sprint!  I know a guy with some nice grills for sale that would work for this.  Looks alright.

Bumper needs chrome.  There will be some rust treatment required before a repaint can be done.  Euro lenses.  Nice that the “airplane” is present.

Lots of overspray under the hood  a 105 1600 with dual Webers would make this a fun car to drive if the suspension and brakes are up for it.  These 105 1600 engines have gotten difficult to find in good order.

This looks like the kind of rust that happens from poor paint preparation.  Note this car has jack points below the rockers rather than in the rockers.  I wonder when that happened… maybe when they went to rockers with closed bottoms?

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Note original blue on dash.  This all looks better than usual.

Wouldn’t take long to get this interior screwed back together.  Looks like the original panel trim bits are present.

Underside doesn’t look too bad – I’d like to see the inside of the front fenders where the splash guard meets the rockers.  Might be some rust hiding in there.

  1. I just missed this – argh. If anyone comes across something similar I’d be grateful for a lead. I’m looking to build a nice street/track car.

  2. Yep, I’m the new owner. I live in New England, was only about 2 hours to the seller. Picked the car up a few weeks ago and have been starting to inventory everything and trying to get things running over the winter and then do further cosmetic restoration from there.
