We’re not used to see a Giulietta Spider for sale in the UK, even if we know well that brits, despite their rainy climate, love open cars.

And this is a special spider as it’s a very early Giulietta Spider 750D as the seller says that’s the 800th car made, previously registered in California from where it came with a black plate, then registered in the UK in 2007: the seller says that the previous owner restored it and, as proof, it has a huge photo file of the work performed.

It seems that the restoration was made with no weldings as, probably, the car body was dry and solid; the color combo is very attractive and the overall look is very nice. Actually the car s fitted with a (very detailed) 1600 cc engine ed by a couple of Weber carburetors but the seller has also the original engine. Some details like the Giulia steering wheel and the missing front bumper overriders are missing but those are actually minor flows: if the car is really as good in flesh as it looks in photo this could be a very nice shot. Find it for sale at £62,500 (today $83,000) here in London, UK.
