Even before COVID BaT had become the go-to venue I think for most interesting cars, at least for folks who didn't want to buy or sell at an in-person auction. That's even more true now. Nasty but interesting cars, sure, you still see them on CL, etc., but if I have something to sell I'm going to BaT. I've sold 8-10 cars there though it's been a few years.

Yes, it was for sale for some time by a dealer in Boise. It was at Concorso two years ago, nice car. Price is up there.

xplorutah - if you end up seeing the car in person let us know what you think. I have admired that car from the photos for a while now.

Max Monahan had that beautiful blue Giulia Super for a long time at his Modern Classic Auto's dealership in Boise. He ended up having to fold his tent in Boise and joined up with Luxe Automotive in SLC, one market size up. Max tried to make it work in Boise for 3 years bringing cars over from Europe and selling them here. He focused on Lancia as much as anything and then had a good number of Alfas and a few assorted others. Years ago you could pick up a Fulvia or Giulia for a good price in Europe and sell it for more in the states to make that a viable business model. These days prices have more or less equalized making that a more difficult proposition. Here's the video Max put together for selling the blue Gulia at his Boise dealership:

He sold a few of his cars on BringATrailer, but this Giulia wasn't among those--I suspect because he really wanted a top price for it and was concerned he wouldn't get that on BaT.

Here's another video Max put out where he talks cars and his business in general:

The Giulia shows up in that one as well around the 7 minute mark. I wish he would have been able to hold on in Boise since I like to see special cars like these in places besides the major markets. $45K has been the asking price for this Giulia ever since he first listed it.

Just wonderful, even has the std. equipment non-functional clock. I have a soft spot for Blu Olendese Supers with brown interiors, as that was the config of my first Super and second Alfa. (Unfortunately mine also had the rust option.)

It is indeed a very nice car, in beautiful original condition. Personally I prefer the older pre-'67 models: Giulia TI (1600) and Bollino Oro. So much nicer in detail: interior, grille, chrome specifics, shorter door handles, 15" steelies.

A shameless promotion for my Nuova Super that I posted in the “cars for sale” forum.
Imported by Anfanuts and living in NorCal for the last five years.

Don't worry. If someone in SLC buys this sedan, it will be only the second one in SLC and perhaps Utah. We may be a metro area, but Alfa's are not highly represented here.

Ha, by "major markets" I really just meant outside CA (although I guess it could be argued that Austin is a hotbed for these as well and should be on some kind of quota :)). Hopefully it works out for Max in SLC, but LUXE seems more of a regular high-end dealer than something different like Max established in Boise.

Here's a 1962 Giulia TI, 402366, for sale in Italy. Currently at $202.50 but has reserve. This is earlier than any cars I know of in the US though I bet there are cars this early in Europe.

I almost contacted you about your Super last week. We had a rainstorm here that caused a large tree to collapse on my Super. After my expected Oh, **it moment my next thought was where and how could I find another Super? Turns out that, although, this was a pretty big tree it wasn't actually resting on my car and was, instead, supported by limb laying across the hood. I spent several days slowly disassembling the tree branch by branch until I had a large pile of logs beside the car. Lifting the car cover I found that I had about a 1/8 " scratch on the leading edge of the front fender that I can probably polish out. I've got some stone chips bigger than that. I really felt like I'd dodged a bullet. Honestly, I was initially heartened by the fact that your Super was still available. Having driven it when Bruce owned it and knowing it came from Ben and John's shop in Spain, I knew it was a good car.

I was in NJ last week in the tail of the hurricane. Many smashed cars and house from uprooted trees. A friend in MD had his R32 VW smashed in half by a fallen 80-ft tree last year. Not sure the DOT tested that angle from a safety perspective.

Jimmy-don't "fix" the scratch. Think of it as a scar you wear proudly on your left cheek. What sounds better-the scar was the result of falling off a tricycle VS The scar was the result of fencing competition while I was attending the University of Heidelberg

How lucky for you, plus look at all the firewood you got. I’m sure you wish it was cooler for working on it, though.
Mine is still in the stable. BaT must be loaded with cars since there are no live auctions.
I’m good until it rains, then my wife is going to want her space in the garage given back.
