I love the POR ads.. They mean Priced Outside Reality.. Can someone explain this phenomenon other than "I 'm too embarrassed to tell anyone except a whisper in the ear."

price aside

"Highly detailed engine compartment" = "spare no expense at the chrome shop."

This is where economics becomes a sticking point in these high asking prices. The theory has been that as SZ's went into the stratosphere,which they have, like $350,000-400,000, that the SS would tag along and follow. There is a major flaw in this theory. The SZ is very rare compared to an SS and basket cases almost don't exist. While restoration costs on SS's are comparatively high, there continue to be plenty of cars on the market that make a thorough restoration on them a better proposition than dipping into the 401K for this. It's called supply and demand. Pricing like this is quite abit ahead of the curves, IMO. Sprints are almost as costly to restore and would come up too if not for the fact that there are so many of them unless one singles out the rare ones like the early column shifts and the LW's which are very hard to find in rough condition.

sprint speciale wanted

i'm looking to acquire a sprint speciale to use as a vintage racecar.

a complete project without significant rust or a racing prepared car would be of interest

i'd also be interested in an ss minus engine and gearbox

thanks!

I agree with SinclairZX81, the red interior was much nicer, black with red piping in a red body is more a Farina colour scheme than a Bertone one.....

1961 giulietta sprint speciale

its not that i do not like the red/white interior but i would have done it different now..

a little different color more to the red.
and different combination red/white as it supposed to be..

but its difficult to make it as original as it was.
where can you search for the right interior color what was in the car when delivered.

are there many combination exterior - interior colors?

i have a giulietta ss with the color gardenia white
i have a giulietta ss with the color albany grey.

any idea color interior?

thanks,
john
