Hi, very nice, original, complete, & low mile, 1973 Spider Veloce 2000 Iniezione for sale in the San Francisco bay area. California car since New. Was running & driving excellent when put into garaged storage in 2005. Needs to be gone through to start, run & drive. Motor is free & turns over. Shouldn't take much time or $ for the right person.

Checked with California DMV and its been soo long since its last registration its out of their system and nothing is owed in back registration or any other fees. Just take the California title & old registration to any DMV field office, pay the transfer fees, use tax & new registration and its back on the road with a 2021 sticker.

Nice looking car.

Just a friendly hint, though. That engine bay. It seems to me that it would help to sell the car if the bay and engine were cleaned up. That cam cover esp is pretty grody, and would shine up nicely, as an example of the car being well taken care of. A couple of hours of elbow grease might mean hundreds of dollars in return. I'm sure the car is ok, but we always see cars for sale where the owner has not cleaned the dirt and even leaves off the car. Makes one less interested.

"Simca mechanical fuel injected motor" ?

Good luck with the sale.

It's a shame that this sat for so long. Plus one on the engine bay. Get the car professionly detailed and you will get much money.

I wonder why it sat for 15 years? That's the going ballpark on BaT for this year and condition if actually running with all the current maint done...

Well, 1ixtapa1 does say "or best offer". Certainly this car's mechanical condition will be a gamble for the buyer. On the other hand, it is a chrome bumper squaretail that looks quite unmolested. If the body checks out as rust-free / major accident free (or relatively so), I wouldn't say the asking price is out-of-line.

Hi all, yes, I'm looking for "best cash offer". Thanks Alfajay. If anyone's seriously interested lets talk before I decide to get it running again or put it on Craigslist. Couple things I forgot to mention. All 4 tires have approx. 3k miles on them. Also, Ansa vintage, stainless, 2 tip, exhaust. Petronix, electronic ignition, coil, distributor & wires installed. Thanks, Curt 650-274-3041

Probably a good idea to rotate the battery 180 deg. Cables look stretched and close to the heat of exhaust manifolds.

Good catch! And the battery hold-down is on backwards.

wow...I would think backwards like that would not even have held the battery in place. On mine there is no "lip" on the tray. so the hold down being backwards would just pull the battery off the tray into the engine as you tighten the screws. Is there even an actual tray? My 74 has just a "flat platform" which does not even support the entire bottom of the battery. Or is my tray missing?
