The car comes with a transparent history in mostly rust-free California. Despite a harmless red repaint, the car has a nice combination of patina and vetted driveability. The driveline has been updated from the original 1600cc motor to a sweeter-driving 1750, but the final bid will probably reflect the non-matching numbers. This car has the best interior of the line, with the "flying buttress" European seats and the faux woodgrain spartan dash. The dash woodgrain is a thin contact paper; getting one restored properly with a vacuum formed vinyl can be done but is expensive. This car needs some TLC, including a steering column cowl, but most parts should be easy to source. The original wheels look great on the car...why did so many others change them out?
If the car checks out in person, any final bid in the lower-teens should be considered well bought and a blue chip investment. I expect Step Nose Giulias to rise 20% in the next two years.
UPDATE: THIS CAR WAS SOLD ON EBAY TO A HIGH BID OF $13,800. A SQUARE DEAL FOR A DECENT CAR.
