Market 534: 1961 Sprint 10102*157352 -white interior!

Giulietta Sprint 10102*157352.  This car is on eBay right now being listed out of New Jersey, but actually residing in Italy.  This slight location disparity will probably put off a lot of buyers, so a good deal may be possible if a buyer is not in a hurry and leverages eBays buyer protections.  It was previously bid up to $25,532,  a smokin’ deal if that auction was for this car being sold out of the San Francisco Bay Area.

These cars look good in black.  I still think these license plate brackets are a bit heavy handed for the lines of a Sprint.  This reminds me I need to get around to adding the reflectors to mine.

Dash looks nice.  This is the first time I’ve seen a horn ring trim in black.   Rubber mats are of unknown origin.

White interior is an odd choice – kinda looks like they were trying to go for the Ferrari 246 look.  I don’t think I could live with it very long.  Door panels are missing the swoopy trim, unless this year model didn’t have it (which I doubt).

No indication whether the engine is original.  Could definitely do with some finishing under here, but as it sits it doesn’t look bad.  The aluminum water pump fan and valve cover lead me to believe it’s a period correct engine if not original.

Tidy.  Note missing bulls-eye base for the Alfa badge.  This is the correct bumper for this series, with the elevated license plate lights.

This is what it usually looks like under here.

  1. The offer of payment of shipping and customs clearance plus the way the ad is worded smell of scam to me. Hope there’s a way to check it.

    • Yeah – it is a little strange, and I bet eBay has a one-size-fits-all approach to guarantees that makes this less of a sure thing than it should be. Perhaps arrange an escrow situation for this?

    • careful with this car…
      ‘the owner’ or who ever has this car in sale at autoscout24.com says, he don’t know about a sale or shipping or whatever in the usa…
      i had some mailcontact with him.

  2. It seems that “complete renovation” can mean many different things. The underside of this Sprint looks untouched and given that, what does a renovated “fully functional engine” mean? If the car was restored 1500 kms ago I would think that the tires would be closer to new condition rather than “good condition”. For me the lack of specific information about this car does not give me any confidence as to what I would be buying. Dennis

    • I emailed the seller
      the price they want is 56000 euro. a quick look thru the history of sales shows a common thread of original cars with a quick coat of paint and a description of a recent restoration. the recent apint could hide anything.
      engine has tabs on the front of the head so head at least is not original. I have a bad feeling about this one.

      cheers ian

      • That’s a little steep for the lack of information given. Thanks for the update. I’ve been looking around for a legitimate Giulietta Sprint for a couple months now. This site is fantastic by the way. Learning a lot from the Models page you have here. I bought a ’74 105 GTV last year and am falling in love with the Alfa brand.

    • it’s still on sale, for 45’000 euro
      check autoscout24.com
      but careful… the car suppose to be in napoly (south part of italy)
      many cheeting people around there
