Update 2/5/14: This is the car I referred to in the write up of the super rusted out Sprint a few days ago. Get that and this and you would have the basis for a doable project.
Update 1/20/2014: This car found its way to Texas and recently sold through Driversource for about $45,000. Still a nice looking example. This car was priced a bit on the high side back in 2009 or the market hasn’t moved much I guess. I’ll split the difference.
A great color for Sprints I think.
10/21/2009: Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*06979, 1315*06197. Frank sent me an email pointing out this car for sale at Classic Throttle Shop in Sydney Australia (who also has a VERY charming Fiat 850 panel van.). Asking price for this Sprint is AUD$43,995 or a little over $40,000 US. A high price, but a very nice car.
Nothing to fault here. Grills, headlight rings, lenses, bumper etc all look very nice. A pair of period Carello headlamps would be the finishing touch, but Australia might have ordinances about headlight brightness that they actually enforce. I have the wipers set that high on my windshield and they move around and chatter at speed, they need to be just at the edge of the windshield gasket on the up side of the free play since the 60 – 80 mph winds they will encounter while working will keep them at that position. Repositioning mine is like job 1142 on my list of things to do.
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.
Update 4/16/13: They all show up eventually it seems and this fellow is no exception -find it here on eBay. Car body is described as having been restored in the Czech Republic, the mechanicals in Germany. I suspect the owner handled a lot of the little details that would eat up hundreds of paid hours. I can’t really comment on the asking price -I imagine the seller has quite a bit in it to have taken it to this level. I am quite taken by this color -maybe a good choice for my Sprint. Very very nice. I need one of these front plate brackets. Continue reading
Update: Thanks Greig for straightening the numbers out for me -I was going off the top of my head when I said 06011 -should be 06611. So yes, the seller has their numbers wrong… including the price
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*
06035, (was) 1315*05570. This car is listed on Craigslist out of Brooklyn, NY. It looks like a nice enough car and all, but has some drawbacks… especially at this price. On a side note, it’s the earliest second series body style Sprint I’ve seen. So we know 06011 06611 was a series 1 and now 06035 is a series 2 -neat! “The only one in the world with this perfection.”
It certainly looks nice here. Has a GTV era Bertone badge on the lower front fender and no rocker trims. Cute little fog/driving lights. 14″ (or are they 13″) rims from a ?. Left and right grills look painted. I do like the white.
Update 12/12/12: A reader has commented that this car has sold for $42,000 and another reminded me that the Craigslist price was $18,000 obo. Such a deal!
Giulietta Sprint 750B 1493*09141, 1315*07630. Cosmopolitan Motors appears to have been the ones who picked up this car that was sold out of an estate sale a while back for $20,000 OBO. A few guys who I correspond with on occasion were trying to buy it so I looked at pictures of it a few times back then – unfortunately I didn’t save any. Looks like a really nice original-ish car. I wonder what the current asking is?? Thanks for sending me this Zen.
One could definitely do worse than this as Sprints go. Has Autorouche (sp?) headlights same as Jeff has on his Giulia SS. Hood fits very very well.
I can take a hint guys! A few of you pointed me in the direction of Arcurial’s ‘Automobiles sur les Champs 4’ auction taking place in a few days where four Giuliettas will be sold. Check it out!
A lot of effort went into this car to make it look good. Correct 155 series tires, great fit and finish all around. Small headlamps are a big selling point for some collectors.
