The seller previously sold his Giulietta Sprint on BaT last year and describes this Spider as showing no evidence of body work or accident damage. The car is pictured with non-original “driving” seats, mats, and wheels, but accompanying the sale are the original seats, mats, and rare chromed Borrani wheels with original tires that are reserved for show use as shown in the photo below.
The red lacquer repaint dates to 1962, and the seller reports a few blemishes including minor paint chipping and touch-ups on the hood, and one area of spidering between the front grille and passenger side headlight.
Early small tail lights are a great look and the 750 cars lacked quarter windows that debuted on the later 101-series Giuliettas. The Carello head lights and windshield show are noted as factory originals by the seller.
The car is shown with spare Giulietta seats and mats in place. The original door panels, trim, rubber, and the exposed painted surfaces appear correct, showing light signs of use and no significant chips, cracks, discoloration or wear. The floors appear sound beneath the mats and are detailed in the gallery below.
Here are the original seats which are in good condition and are installed occasionally for shows. All internal foams were recently professionally replaced.
The seller reports that lighting, gauges, and controls are functioning correctly, with the exception of a recent fuel gauge failure that will be repaired for the new owner. Note the Veloce-specific 8000RPM tachometer.
he original 1.3L twin cam inline-four was rebuilt by a prior owner. Veloce-spec engines are distinguished underhood by the large airbox, plenum, and dual carburetors. Minimal wear was noted on the cams at the time of the rebuild, and correct valve springs were installed along with slightly larger throttle shafts to improve starting and smoother idling. The car is now described as starting easily with a few pumps of throttle. The seller has conducted oil and filter changes annually, and no current mechanical issues are noted.
750-series cars carried build plates that denoted the full chassis and engine numbers. Reproduction plates are common on fully restored cars but this one retains its original unit as pictured above.
Engine #1315-32076 is also confirmed as original. Veloce engines were denoted by the 1315-3xxx prefix.
Underbody photos show the car to be clean and mostly dry with the exception of a fluid seep at the differential. Limited surface corrosion is visible where paint has worn or chipped away from the underside of the frame rails. New springs and Koni shocks were reportedly added two years ago. The original springs and shocks are included in the sale should the buyer choose to refurbish them, and are pictured in the gallery below. The exhaust system is described as factory and shows some surface corrosion.
