Could you post some additional photos taken from different angles of that particular piece and describe both rubber and what looks to be the SS metal piece?

Thanks

Hi Ray,

Can´t do that as my car is far from where I live and don´t have more pics of that spot in my archives, but I´ve seen the metal piece at Alfastop´s website (thus maybe Tony even has the rubber piece).

Grieg,
Are the fender wells in the back seat of the 101 Sprint painted or covered with material?
Thanks,
Don

Ray,

I think I´ve the measurements of the small metal piece somewhere in my archives and will try to dig them up later this evening.

If I recall correctly I think I also used piece of the old door rubber seal (after change for a new one) that seemed to be correct for this purpose.

There was also a thread on this small piece on top of the Spider door, but have no clue any longer what it would have been called.

Don, the wheel wells on the Sprints are covered in fabric (stripy cloth for 750 and interim cars, speckled cloth on the 101's) or possibly vinyl which was used in '58 and intermittently in '59 &'60 and on specific request in '61.

Ciao

Giulia Spider seat back wood tack strips

Currently on Ebay a pair of very, very rarely seen (if ever, as they are always gone), Giulietta/Giulia seat wood tack strips.

Another interesting info for Sprint owners (in this case the 101 1300 and 1600 Sprints) is about the elusive luggage straps that also are part of the interior, although not necessarily on every Sprint, an info that already is presented somewhere on this forum, but here it doesn´t need to be sought after:

1600 Sprint leather luggage straps

Correct upholstery

Can I ask anyone in the know if the following seat covers (in light grey imitation-leather) are or look correct for a 1959 Giulietta Sprint Normale?
Thank you

Thank you
I don´t own a ´59 Sprint but don´t think your covers are correct, in fact far from that, although have it rather confirmed from another party as well......you can probably see the correct seat covers for your car in some of the previous posts in this thread or on Elvezios website (you could also ask them to send you info over what they have for Sprint ´59).....

P.S.

To begin with, pleated seats occured first on late 1600 Sprints.....seems that the partial pic of a seat (?) to the far left in your pic still retains the original covers instead.....if I see correctly.....

Dennis

Dennis, thank you for your input
I thought that the correct covers were as the vast majority photos I have seen (including in this thread) but I came across some photos (not having taken much notice at the time I cannot remember where now...) and a car of the same year (1st picture below) that have the same pleated style covers...
Also, both this car and my light grey covers seem largely "untouched" judging from the metal trim and silver foil still present...
The car came to me with a rear seat (the one on the left as you refer) and a passenger seat
that, although covered in black & white imitation-leather, also support the same pleated design...
It all made me think twice about the correct cover style for this 1959 750B-transition-101 Sprint

Hi Carlos,

As you write the covers of the other car you found seem untouched, they might possibly have been a special order at the factory, but I doubt it and still think they were repolstered sometimes back in time, but you´ll see what the response here will eventually be......

Carlos, in a word NO, the Sprints never had pleated seats, your seats look more like a '70's retrim.

Go to the start of this thread and check the pictures I posted of 101 Sprint interiors. As your car is a '59 it could have had a vinyl/vinyl or a vinyl/cloth interior trim (stripy 750 cloth). The vinyl was mainly off-white in colour, but red cars could have had red/black interior combinations.
