And yet it moves: 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider

Believe it or not, this Giulietta, which has the perfect appearance of a wreck, runs good as the video posted by the seller shows.

This shows once again, if proof were needed, the robustness of engines built by Alfa Romeo after the WWII. They were as reliable as the body of these cars were prone to rust (which is the main problem on classic italian cars, at leat those built with steel): the problem is that often the biggest cost of a restoration is the coachwork.

We still can not understand the gap between the conditions of the body and engine; the only explanation which comes to mind is that someone in the past had the task to turn on the engine periodically even if the car was parked somewere (not in an enclosed garage for sure). This is a Giulietta 101 so it is the least attractive model of the Giulietta Spider breed, but it still is a beautiful car and it deserves to be saved, as long as the reserve price is set not too high. Find it for sale here in White Plains, NY, with bidding at $6,400 and reserve not met.
