1963 Giulia....I have come to terms that I m never going to be able to get another Alfa restoration finished. I have a completely restored 59-60 Giulietta and in the middle of a 1966 912. I am looking for advice on listing the car, it is complete but motor out and needs complete restoration. I have many pictures and can provide any information needed. Suggestions on where to list and possible value would be great help. Rob M

I think I get it:

  • You have an unfinished '63 Giulia normale. This is the car you'd like some advice on how to sell and a valuation based on seven pictures.
  • You have a finished Giulietta built in the '59-60 timeframe. Looks like you did a very nice job restoring that car. Not clear if you're trying to sell this one as well.
  • You also have a Porsche 912, but we don't discuss that sort of thing here.
Am I on the right track? If so, here are a few random thoughts:

It's can be difficult to sell an incomplete, partially-disassembled car. Is Endwell, New York near a population center, which would expose the car to a larger group of prospective, in-person buyers? If not, you'll need lots of photos to attract interest over the Internet. Listing it here is a good way to reach Alfa enthusiasts, but many of these people will be scattered around the world and unlikely to transport a project car back to Australia (or wherever) - still, advertising it here would be a good start. You might try the Hagerty valuation site to get a rough idea of what '63 Giulia normales are selling for, though their price ranges don't extend down to disassembled cars.

Well, I am biased but your Giulietta is quite nice. It would be hard to do two in a row, a 912 would be a fun distraction. That said, Bring a trailer would be interesting. They often get grief here but a " project" might go well in these current times. We all have spare time.... I have never used BaT but watch them often for sport.

Maybe try the cars for sale forum here first with a ball park price. Sometimes unintended feelings get hurt asking for offers without a price idea. Looks like a good base for someone to enjoy a driver without getting buried on a full restoration.

I’ve sold a few finished cars on eBay with success, but it sounds like the Bring a Trailer followers here draw a lot more serious of a car guy crowd. You have some nice cars. Good luck, now that I think we’ve figured out your plan.

Thank you for the responses, yes just the Gulia I would like to sell and some of my spare part collection. A few years back it was a lot of ebay and I admit I haven't been following since my Giulietta has been finished so your advice is helpful. I am close to Binghamton NY which is 150 - 200 miles from NYC, Boston, Buffalo/Toronto, Philadelphia and a cross road for several major North East Interstates. 81, 88 , 86, 17 so easy access for the North East and Mid Atlantic.
I will look in to the BAT site it was mentioned by some local collectors, also and if I can come up with a fair value maybe the ABB will be worth a try. I will get it out the corner of my garage and blow off the dust and get lots of pictures. Rob Mack

I intentionally omitted BaT from my list of suggestions. Not that I'm mad at them, or don't like the snarky comments their listings bring. I just suspect that BaT would turn their nose up at a disassembled, project, Giulia normale (if you had a Ferrari or Porsche it might be a different story). But sure, it can't hurt to inquire.

My sense about project car valuations is that it is futile to try coming up with an exact price. For original restorations (like your Giulietta) there is a lot of auction data that can be used to establish a narrow price range. But with projects, a LOT depends on finding that one buyer who has the motivation to take on the challenge.
