Market 463: SS 10120 00379 -nice since new

Update September 30 2015: Symbolic has listed this car again.  Interesting that it has failed to find a permanent (on the human scale) home. Asking price is now $189,000.  I wonder if the seller from 2013 just decided to hang on to it.

Sex sells no?  I know, we’ll ad $60,000 to the price and take a picture with a dame.

Update April 20 2013: This car was listed on Anamera for $129,000 so I guess that must have been the sale price.

Expect it to sell then be auctioned this summer.

Update March 4 2013: I changed the text a bit as it’s not a Giulietta in the period photo.  Still a cool shot though.

Giulietta Sprint Speciale 10117/10120*00379, 00120*00769.  This very nice example was at some point listed by Symbolic Motors -it’s on a photo aggregation page and credited to them. If anyone has more info I’d love to hear more about this car.

This car circa 1961?  Can’t be… it’s a Giulia.

Market 484: Early 750B Sprint in Texas 05588

Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*05588, 1315*04982.  This somewhere between here and there project is on eBay now out of Richardson Texas.  Asking price is a somewhat aggressive $33,500 that will seem like a deal in 5 years.  While the project has been moved forward, and one could carry on, ignoring the less-than-perfect aspects and create a driver, I would consider a rethink on some of the work done and take a step back.  The wiring looks awful and new well made harnesses can be had from multiple sources for not much money -so this at least needs to be redone -yes, I know the under dash wiring is a bear, but that’s what patience is for right?  Overspray and incorrect finishes in the engine compartment also needs attention, but none of this is particularly difficult.  At the end of the project you’d have a nice early Sprint!

Looks very nice.  I’m sure someone can count few things wrong – like the missing badge, but as these go it’s pretty good.

Market 483: Sprint Veloce 750E 03798 ‘lightweight’ at RM this weekend

Update:  A reader who has inspected this car says there are a lot of details incorrect about it, and wonders about its provenance.  Especially of note are the all chrome rather than aluminum trim bits, and the overstuffed seats.  Go have a look if you’re interested!  I’m just an admirer of a shiny red Sprint -especially considering the sad state of my own!

Giulietta Sprint Veloce 750E 1493*03798, 1315*30552.  A lightweight Sprint Veloce is one of the most exciting Giulietta models, and to find one of the few they made in unmodified form is unusual.  RM is auctioning off this nicely done example next weekend.  If you’ve always wanted one, now is your chance.

Nice nice nice.  Original marker light?  Want!

Market 482: Veloce-ized Spider 10123 379454 survivor

Giulia Spider 10123*379454This car ended recently on eBay out of Washington state and almost perfectly represents the value of a car a friend of mine was asking me to give a valuation of.  A well maintained, scruffy but attractive -well, except those seats- car that functions as intended and needs nothing for use, but needs a lot to be a nice car.  I guessed $20,000 – $30,000, probably a little higher than $25,000 if sold on eBay.

Market 481: Spider 750D 03235 project

Giulietta Spider 750D 1495*03235, 1315*43081. This car has been on eBay a few times recently , trying both the recently defunct ‘start low’ old school auction approach, the ‘this is what I want’ buy-it-now approach, and now the ‘call me if you want it’ BIN approach.  Car looks decent enough -needs everything except a lower 4″ metal transplant.  Great car for the aspiring 750D owner -I’ve seen, worked on, and written about much worse!

On the bright side, it’s not 1988 and you can actually get parts now.  They’re not as good as the ‘left-overs’ of 1988 you might have gotten from Alfa Ricambi, but they are available.  Door fits well, wheels need paint -you know the rest. Continue reading

Market 479: Spider Veloce 10118 390616 -“very simple project”

Giulia Spider Veloce 10118*390616, 00536*07913 (not original).  This Spider Veloce is on eBay right now out of Princeton NJ.  The body looks to be in great shape and is described as having been finished to the point of being ready for paint.  Original color was Black with probably red interior -a stunning combo!  Biggest drawback I can see is the lack of the original engine.  The 00121 engines it shares with the Giulia Sprint Speciale’s do come up, but not often and not cheap.  I know where there is one right now…

Always a pleasure to behold.  Stance is per original -not with the modern springs and all that lowers it quite a bit.  Wheels are Borranis.  Looks like a good place to start.

Market 470: Project Spider 10103*11198 in FlOrlando

Update 5/6/2013: This charming candidate has found its way onto eBay.  Already at $6600.

Exciting stuff when you take an unfamiliar road in your neighborhood and find something like this.

4/19/2013: Giulietta Spider 10103*11198At the other end of the spectrum from yesterday’s Spider Veloce is this Spider out of the land of ahem.  Asking price is $14,500.  Looks like a real gem -especially the interior.  It runs in a recently-freed-up-with-Marvel-Mystery-oil sort of way.  Steering wheel is without cracks.  Good times for all!

One of those what were they thinkings on the color, neglect etc.  It is all there, but how much of it is usable.
