Apples and oranges. As I said, if it runs well (and like any Alfa, isn't rusty) then it's all about the price. I think it's too high, but it's at a dealer who presumably wants a profit and presumably wants a sale. So it will move, eventually, for some number.
I would bet, and I think you'd agree, that a mojority of Giulia buyers want the look and the performance of a cobbled together Giulia; most want a 2 liter engine these days, for instance. That's an instant cobble. A minority of sophisticated Giulia buyers want an all correct, Super 1600. Are we all going to go off on a trend of, "is this exactly right and correct as when it left the factory 50 years ago?" If so, then the game is changing...

Yea but this is a durian friut. My problem with this car is that it does not have a prep logic; it just appears to be cobbled together with engine and body odds and ends that came out of the bin by an unknowledgable preparer for an ignorant buyer. The paintjob and trim looks nice and I do like the interior look for a driver. BUT. A 1600 with a modern head and an apparent later hydraulic clutch? Why? A Spica air cleaner hammered into place? What carbs? A 5 bar grill on an S1. No suspension mods/maintenance mentioned. And what else sis there not apparent? Sorry, this is just a bodged car with a shiny paint job and nice Iilea bumper.

This car is a very good value. Ideal candidate for a 1750. LINK

Bruce, we did the Grey Bollino d'Oro resto, took us 18 months to bring her back to its original and inmaculate condition, best paintjob i've ever seen.
Absolutely worth the asking price

Ahhh, I did not see it in your Gallery on your website. Nice prep, proper. I assume you wholesaled it to the seller, a dealer.

That's a gorgeous car, and if Ben and Jon restored it, it's right and should be on anyone's list of good cars to buy.

That was my point above . . . t's a proper car by comparison (and on AS24 now BTW as the highest priced car and only 1600 S1) and not a bodge job done from bin spare parts, for nearly the same price.

That is a beautiful Giulia, although I will be shocked if it sells for the estimate of $40,000 or more. Let us know what you think of it if you get to see it up close. Also in the description they erroneously say it is the same type of car that Nikki Laura drove in Rush. That was a Lancia 2000.

Yeah I had a chuckle over that bit as well.

I will look it over as I can, I am a newb so hoping it is a real good one so I can compare and contrast my (later) Super 1300 against it.

Strong money for a single carb TI nice driver. Similar cars routinely sell for !8K euro and less in Y'urp. Americans tend for forget that Giulia TI and Super sedans are a lot more common in other countries than they are here in the state. Across the water they are not rare in the ways customarily collectable GTVs and Spiders are.

A typical price for a 1300 TI on the open market in the US is $15,000-20,000. Anything can happen at an auction. Should be interesting. Nice car.
