Update April 13, 2016: Talked to the buyer of this car the day before yesterday. He’s very enthusiastic about it and has begun a rolling restoration. He says it is absolutely rust free and in many ways better than he expected. As the comment below says, we will all be belly-aching about how we should have bought this car in 5 years.
Update February 15, 2016: This car has been listed on eBay. It has 8 bids and sits at $40,000 as I type. I should be nicer to my Sprint -maybe even get it painted!
February 1, 2016: Giulietta Sprint 750B 07413. This Sprint is on my local Craigslist. Has all the hallmarks of a survivor from Mexico… redone but totally deviating from original interior. Odd components in the engine compartment and probably a black 80’s cassette deck. Asking price is $38,000. One needs to see this in person checking carefully for filler.
Looks like a Sprint. I can’t tell if the sill trim is missing or just nor original. No wipers.
Steering wheel looks weird – like it was sanded too thin. Interior gets the job done, but is no where near original.
Lots to do.
Have these wheels been modified? Lips look a bit big.
Odd unfinished headliner edge.
The old finger trick. Looks decent from back here. License plate is off center and it has a Sprint Veloce badge.
Brake fluid bottle is probably from a Toyota or VW. All kinds of unfinished and cruddy under here. Lots and lots to do.
