Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*00104. Oliver in Germany spent a great deal of effort restoring this car and recently had the opportunity to show it at the museum”Kunstpalast Düsseldorf”. The exhibition is “PS Ich liebe dich” (PS I love you), a group of 28 famous cars out of the 1950s – 1970s. The show ends February 10th so I’m late to report this!
A beautiful car! Probably nicer than the day it was made. VA is Varese I believe. I see some serious cars in the background.
Scrolling through a slideshow of restoration pictures makes it seem like things just move along smoothly, stuff gets done, and a after a couple of checks written and decisions made, a nice car emerges. As a restorer with only attempts made, rather than restorations finished, I can tell you, very much more goes into a restoration than a series of pictures can tell. (Actually, I’ve finished many vintage audio restorations, but they are several orders of magnitude simpler than a vehicle).
The restoration team deserves praise for having gotten this car together and looking amazing, and the owner deserves praise for continually taking the high road and spending the extra dollar to ensure the results are as accurate as possible and perfectly executed. With that in mind… Does anyone know the details of how the starter is connected on these early Spiders? The actuating bracket is pictured below.
I’ll post a follow up to this with details of the restoration (hint hint Oliver – send me an email), but for now thought I should just get this posted.
