Lot # 166 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale ‘Muso Basso’; S/N AR1012000068; White/Tan, Beige vinyl; Estimate $418,285 – $537,795; Recent restoration, 2- condition; With Reserve; Hammered Sold at $406,334 plus commission of 13.97%; Final Price $463,101. – Silver steel wheels, hubcaps, Vredestein tires. – Early “low nose” body style. Missing panel under the dashboard. Excellent fresh paint and interior. The underbody is done like new but the engine is inaccessible. Scratched windshield. Scuffed headlight bezels and grille bar. Represented as the original engine, gearbox and rear axle, restoration completed just before the auction, but curiously unsatisfying. – Even for the low nose early body style (101 built) and month-old restoration this is a generous price that puts great faith in the restoration’s quality with little time to test it out as evidenced by the five miles on the odometer. There are too many little oversights to instill much confidence in it but the bidders didn’t seem to care. As it sits, it is expensive.
