1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce Offered as a buy-it-now. Make us an offer!
I just retrieved this car from a storage bin-rather than a barn-where the car has sat for over 30 years. The gentleman who owned the car bought the car in 1968 from the original owner. He was reluctant to part with the car. It was his baby and his favorite out of his 5 car collection. As you can see it's a true Veloce with its original carburators. Yes there is rust- this is the midwest- but it seems to be mostly limited to the rockers, the floors appear solid although there is a large rust area where the batery resided in the trunk of course. The top appears to be in good condition. We have not attempted to turn the engine over. It pushes rather easily, the brakes are not locked up and the tires hold air; surprisingly . As you can see this car was last registered in 1971.
It is missing its front eyebrow, the hubcaps, the drivers door handle button, and its tools and manuals, and at this point the key- which he is confident he does have somewhere, He said he never used the tools so he didn't keep them in the car and can't remember if he has them or not. Memory is an issue here. He is going to try to locate other things but as of today this is what we have-what you see is what you get. The wire sticking out of the front is a rigged hood release he said he installed since the interior one must not be operable.
I am not a person who feels dust is of historic value, but I know some of you do, so we took care not to disturb the 30 years of accumulated dust when pulling it out of the bin. Its being offered as is- dust and all- right now. If it doesn't sell I won't be able to bring myself to leave it this way- just warning you.
I personally can't wait to try and get this baby running, but that's going to be your job really as the new owner. I am not going to bother to go over how rare and desirable this car is- if you have read this far you already know.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR EMAIL AND ASK WHAT IT TAKES TO BUY THE CAR NOW, OR WHAT THE RESERVE IS - I have every intention of selling this car to the high bidder should the reserve not be met. I am trying to establish what the car is worth using the auction format. I am not going to end the auction early. If you are not the high bidder, then you most likely will miss the opportunity to buy this car. PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THE CAR IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR FUNDS IN ORDER, NEED TO GET YOUR WIFE’S PERMISSION, ARE A DEALER WHO CANT BUY IT UNTIL HE RESELLS IT, OR IF YOU WANT TO COME AND INSPECT IT BEFORE PAYING. Inspections are most welcome prior to the sale ending, but not afterward. Once you buy it, you buy it - NOT the right to inspect it.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (series 750 and 101) was manufactured from 1954 to 1965. The first Giulietta model was a coupé, the Giulietta Sprint, introduced in late 1954. This was followed by a sedan in spring 1955 and in mid 1955, the open two-seat Giulietta Spider, featuring convertible bodywork by Pininfarina The Giulietta used an Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine of 1290 cc straight-4, with light alloy cylinder block and alloy cylinder head with twin overhead camshafts. The original Giulietta engine produced a power output of 53 bhp in the sedan and 80 bhp in the Giulietta Sprint. This was increased to 100 bhp in later sporting models such as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale and the Giulietta Sprint SZ (Sprint Zagato). Our Ebay Policies:
