1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300Ti

There has been a steady trickle of cars here on CICFS that have been sourced from Europe, and this Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300Ti is one of them. Coming from Germany, this Alfa was restored in the old world and now resides in sunny Florida. In red over tan, this Berlina looks sharp and would make an excellent practical classic.

1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300Ti

1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300Ti, Red with Tan interior. I purchased the car in Germany and restored it in Europe before shipping to the US. Engine has been rebuilt using original standard size bearings and pistons/rings. All rust repair was done professionally and rust prevention was applied before painting. Brakes are all rebuilt, transmission mounts replaced, etc.
All the parts for the restoration was purchase from OKP.DE in Germany. I purchased a new carpet from OKP but I still have the original rubber carpet. The original vinyl seats are still great, the driver seat however needed vinyl replacement. Odometer shows 48320km (approx. 30,200 miles) but I can not confirm weather it is correct or not. The odometer and speedometer works fine just like everything else on the car. During restoration the body was completely stripped and all rusted panels were replaced (again we used OKP)

Car is mostly original and complete, nothing missing, runs and drives perfect. We recently participated in a local Alfa Romeo show (one picture is included from the show). Picture # 23 shows the car during restoration and the last picture shows the car as it was purchased. Car has a clear FL title and located in Sanford Florida. You can drive it home from Sanford, FL, there is no mechanical or any other issue with it.

Small problems with the car:
1. Windshield has a small chip
2. Headlight ring is not original Alfa, its from a Fiat 124. Fits perfect but slightly different.
3. Grille chrome bars are not original, instead of metal it is chromed plastic.

This Giulia has been restored nicely, but not to a point that you would be afraid to use it. Like the last Giuliawe featured, we're probably looking at a $15,000 to $20,000 car.

1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato 1.6

The Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato could almost be considered the forerunner to the modern hot hatchback. While the standard Fulvia was an exercise in proper proportions and elegance, the Zagato variant has a bit of a butch, bulldog stance about it. This car for sale in Washington State is not a concours example, but is a good runner for someone seeking high Italian style at a reduced price.

1972 Lancia Fulvia Zagato 1.6

Selling this 1971 Lancia Fulvia Sport (Zagato body) for a client. His reserve is much less than his investment. He simply has too many cars. Car is fitted with a 1.6 liter Fulvia V4 engine and is a second series car so it has a factory 5 speed gearbox. Fitted with Weber manifold and 40DCOE carb. Engine has less than 3,000 miles on rebuild. New clutch pressure plate and release bearing. New Exhaust in last 200 miles. Front seats freshly upholstered to a very high standard. Excellent life left on tires. Car runs and drives very well pulls strong. Unusual vintage wheels. Incredible dash in excellent shape. No rust in floors very solid car that came from California, was sold to my client by Fantasy Junction a couple of years ago.

Clear Washington State title. No signs that the car was ever wrecked. No spare tire. No bumpers (that is the way he got it). Odometer shows 80,916 KM I believe that can not be far from accurate but I have no way of verifying that. Paint passes the 20 ft test, shiny but not concours.

This Zagato Sport has some issues that need to be sorted but it's mostly complete. This would be a good car for someone seeking a good runner or an easy restoration project. The best Zagato Sports fetch between $35,000 to $40,000, so this car might realistically bring $20,000 to $25,000.

2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

Of all the new cars introduced in the last decade, I believe by far the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is the most gorgeous of them all. A limited production exotic based heavily on Ferrari mechanicals, the 8C employed a 4.2 liter V8 with 444 horsepower and a carbon fiber body mated to a steel chassis. This was the first Alfa Romeo to be sold in the US since the manufacturer left the automotive landscape in 1995. The US got the lion's share of the 500 8C's produced, with 90 coming to these shores. This 8C for sale in Illinois is a rare chance to get behind the wheel of this brilliant looking sports car.

2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

A very rare Alfa 8C! Only 1,831 miles, Rosso Alfa with Cuoio leather racing seats and full interior carbon kit. Black carpets, Bose sound, red calipers, iPod connector, leather headliner and bordeaux stitching. 1 OF 500 made. Carbon body panels, hi output Ferrari V8, F1 gearbox, a very special car.

The 8C Competizione had an original list price of $275,000, which was uncharted territory for Alfa Romeo at the time. Today, these cars are highly prized and typically bring anywhere between $225,000 to $250,000. Most of these cars that come up for sale have low mileage, but honestly, I would love to be wealthy enough to use one of these on a daily basis. Alfa Romeo knocked it out of the park when it came to aesthetics on this one.

1985 Ferrari 308GTS Quattrovalvole

One of the quintessential sports cars from the 1980s, the Ferrari 308 still turns heads to this day. Popularized in television and film, these cars had star power like few other machines out there. This 308GTS Quattrovalvole added four valves per cylinder to the 3.0 liter V8 offering up 240 horsepower. These were the fastest of all the 308 models. This 308 for sale in Indianapolis wears the classic red over tan color combination and has just over 40,000 miles on the clock.

1985 Ferrari 308GTS Quattrovalvole

This awesome 1985 Ferrari 308GTSi is finished in classic Rosso Corsa Red exterior with tan interior and black carpets. This beautiful example has just been fully inspected and had an engine out service performed which included new timing belt and new clutch upon arrival here at our dealership. It was just fitted with new tires, fully detailed and is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner. This is the classic Ferrari body style as seen in the popular "Magnum P.I." television series from that era. This is a well sorted out freshly serviced example so don't waste time as it won't last long.

This car is priced just about right, as most clean, well documented 308s are exchanging hands in the low to mid $30,000 range, which makes this a tempting proposition for children of the 1980s wishing to live out their fantasies.

1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Quadrifoglio

Even though the winter months are upon us here on the East Coast of the US, it's always nice to dream about warm weather and top down motoring during these frigid days. One of my favorites of all time is the Alfa Romeo Spider. Typically I prefer the early Duettos and final Series 4 Spiders, but this Quadrifoglio for sale in Illinois has travelled just under 20,000 miles and comes equipped with the not often seen hardtop.

1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Quadrifoglio

Quadrifoglio, beautiful roadster in excellent condition. Very low miles, one owner with clean Carfax Vehicle History Report. This 1986 Alpha Romeo Quadrifoglio Spider is absolutely beautiful. Locally owned and serviced. Stored under cover when it wasn't driven. It has never seen snow. Soft top was replaced three years ago and a factory original hard top is included as well. It is very rare to find a Spider in this condition with extensive maintenance records with receipts. Everything on this vehicle is original! This Spider is equipped with Alloy Wheels, Power Windows, Power Mirrors, Manual Transmission, OEM Hard Top, Soft Top, OEM Cassette Stereo, Rear Spoiler and Air Conditioning.

At $15,000, this mid '80s Spider is priced well above the average. While it is well equipped, I suspect this car might change hands for around $13,000. The black trim around the rear clip always made this particular Spider's looks a bit heavy handed, but with the hardtop, alloy wheels shared with the later Series 4 and the all important red paintwork, this contributes to this Series 3 Spider's desirability.

1947 Fiat Topolino 500A

In the middle of the 1930s, with Europe on the cusp of war, Fiat engineer Dante Giacosa unleashed the 500, nicknamed the Topolino (little mouse). This was bare bones transportation done in only the way the Italians could do, with a four cylinder engine hanging out over the front axle and fashionable looks that mask just how small this car really is. The Nuovo Cinquecento took the Topolino's place in the mid 1950s and that car became a cult icon, so much so that it overshadowed its predecessor. This Topolino for sale in California is a later model that is ready for someone to enjoy.

1947 Fiat Topolino 500A

1947 Fiat Topolino 500A
s/n 500-102007, Engine no. 500-104614
Charcoal Grey/Cream with Tan Interior

The Fiat 500, colloquially known as the “Topolino” (literally translated as “small mouse” but also the Italian translation of “Mickey Mouse”), was to Italy what the Volkswagen Beetle was to Germany, and the Citroen 2CV was to France. Inexpensive, simple, economical, and robust, the cars competed not with other cars, but with tractors, horses, and two-wheeled vehicles. They sold extremely well, with large numbers built, but only a select few have transcended the decades to exist today, and almost none have been cared for and restored to the level of this wonderful example.

Benefitting from the long term custodianship of the President of the Fiat Owner’s Club Belgium, this charming Topolino is exceedingly solid, complete, and correctly restored. The engine was rebuilt as part of the restorative process, and the car starts easily and runs very well. The brakes supply ample stopping power, and gear changes are very positive in nature. Very recently the fuel system, including the fuel tank, has been serviced. In total, the car operates as it should, and does not appear to be in need of any major repairs at this time. This Topolino shows every indication of having lived a shelter life, always remaining in excellent condition, and is still a matching numbers unit.

Cosmetically speaking, this is an excellent example, with outstanding paint quality in beautiful colors, nice brightwork showing minimal aging, and wonderfully fresh interior door panel and seat upholstery. Other portions of the interior, such as the rear carpets, looks to be original, confirming the well kept nature of this car. The gauges are in very good condition, and appear to be unrestored. The cloth retractable top is in very good condition, and the car sits on newer Michelin XZ series tires. The spare is also a newer Michelin XZ. Atop the luggage rack sits at charming wicker picnic basket.
Included with the sale are extensive records and photographs pertaining to the previous long-term ownership period containing its original Belgium registration booklet, photos detailing the restoration process, records detailing the restoration process, the car’s Topolino Gold Register certificate, an extraordinarily detailed account of its history with many wonderful period photos, letters from previous owners, copies of previous ownership documents, photos of the car partaking in recent and early Fiat Owner’s Club outings, a copy of family Christmas cars picturing the car, as well as the California specialty “Topolino” license plates. Micro cars of this era are always welcome sights at motor car gatherings, and evoke a response simply not garnered by late model super cars, multi-million dollar one-offs, or speed-tuned racecars. “I expect that every mile will be a joy”- the late Martin Swig, Fiat dealer. $39,500.

It's nice to see a Topolino at this level of originality, as so many of these small cars were chopped up into dragsters. Almost $40,000 is a bit high of an ask, but not terribly overpriced. Good examples today can run anywhere from $25,000 to $35,000, with the best examples bringing north of $40,000.

1973 Ferrari 365 Daytona Spyder Michelotti

The Ferrari Daytona is arguably one of the most beautiful Ferraris ever produced. And with the number of gorgeous Ferraris produced throughout the company's history, this is no mean feat. Then what would prompt someone to mess with success? Well, Luigi Chinetti, founder of the North American Racing Team (NART), decided to have his hand at a rework of the Daytona Spider. The result is interesting, with squared off lines more fitting of a late 1970s or 1980s Ferrari. The reasoning behind this restyle was that this Daytona Spider was used in the movie "A Star Is Born" and was damaged during filming. For sale in Belgium, this car is being offered with no reserve. Will this Spyder be as valued as the original?

1973 Ferrari 365 Daytona Spyder Michelotti

Ferrari Daytona 365 Spyder Vin 16467 Original Body by Michelotti. Car was used in the famous movie and was rebody by Michelotti after a accident by Luigi Chinetti. Unique opportunity to own a piece of the American legend and have a unique Ferrari to show in the Concours d Elegance. If really interested, please call 01133613916500.

Known for creating many unique Ferraris included the coveted Spyder California, Luigi Chinetti commissioned this particularly odd rebody on an original 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder.

After being damaged during the filming of the movie 'A Star is Born', this Daytona Spyder was sold to Chinetti, who then had Giovanni Michelotti design a unique body for it. Despite being years out of production, the 365 was sent to Italy and recieved updated styling as well as a new interior. Upon completition, the car was given the name NART to recognize Luigi Chenetti's North American Racing Team and sent to the 1980 Turin Motor Show. Little did either party know at the time that this car would become the very last car designed by Giovanni Michelotti whos career was both long and prolific.

A standard Daytona Spider might bring anywhere between $800,000 to over $1 million based on current auction results. There were only 122 Spyders ever produced, and this car being a one off, it is a bit difficult on which to place a value. Even though it's more rare than the standard Spider, I tend to think this car might not reach the same heights in terms of value. It certainly has pedigree, I can't help but think this particular Ferrari looks a lot like the kit cars that emulated various Ferrari models over the years.

1971 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Super

As a follow up to the tasty Giulia Super Ti, here is another European spec Alfa Berlina from the same period. With dual carburetors and a five-speed gearbox, this 1300 Super for sale in California is a great way to enjoy some classic motoring with a side of practicality.

1971 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300 Super

1971 Giulia Super 1300 cc engine. 5-speed, great driving car. European model, dual carburetors runs great 4-wheel disc brakes.

Interior; newly recovered front seats rear seats in good condition with no rips or tears. Dash is in good condition with no cracks. Headliner is complete with no tears but has a few stains. Steering wheel is in good condition, Interior lights work, radio has a removable face. I never use it as the engine makes a nicer sound.

Exterior/Body; Paint is shiny in good condition and looks very nice, gets lots of compliments and smiles with no fading but not of show quality and not the original color. Bumpers are stainless and in good condition.

Engine/Transmission/Brakes Starts easily on the choke and settles to a nice idle, if it sits for a few weeks it needs a few pumps on the throttle to start. For a 1300 cc engine it has lots of get up and go and sounds great. The transmission is typical of an Alfa transmission and needs to be used gently when the choke is on and the engine cold but once it warms up shifts easily. The clutch has no slipping and works easily, the brakes work with no noise or pulling. The rear muffler will need to be replaced at some time but is not loud.

Driving; Drives down the road nicely I’ve driven it a round trip of 200 miles recently with no issues it is a comfortable car to drive. You are welcome to come and drive it – I recommend anyone wanting to purchase it to come and see it. Currently registered clear title in my name.

Giulia's of this vintage in this kind of condition are bringing roughly between $15,000 to $25,000 these days on average. While this car looks to be in good nick, it would obviously be a good rule of thumb to get a specialist to look it over. I like the honesty of the car. The rather plain color, steel wheels and single headlamps lend the car a subtle aura. But at its heart, it is still an Alfa, which means you'll be in for an entertaining drive.
