Auction House
Chassis no. AR755684 Engine no. AR0050223818. Biancospino over black cloth. 1570/106-hp, inline-4. 5-speed, hub caps, boot cover, tool kit.

Evaluation: One of 1003 built by Carrozzeria Touring. Sold new in Switzerland in blue over tan cloth, and restored there in the 2010s. Good paint with a small scratch on the nose and a light scrape on the edge of the trunk lid. There is a troubling group of cracks and blisters behind the left front wheel well as well. Lots of scratches on the windshield frame. A few blemishes on the wheels but underneath the car looks mostly clean and just lightly driven. Light scratches on the side glass. Very good interior with nothing to nitpick. A rare, noteworthy Alfa with mostly forgivable flaws.

Bottom Line: Compared to the normal Giulia, the drop-top GTC is on a different level of rarity and is considerably more valuable, although not quite as nice to look at. We’ve seen this one come to market twice before, once for the exact same $148,500 final price at Gooding’s Scottsdale auction in 2018, and once two years ago on Bring a Trailer where it failed to sell at a $72,000 high bid. It appears to have gotten lost in the shuffle on BaT but hit an absolute home run on each of its trips to Gooding. A more realistic market value for this competently but not concours restored Alfa is somewhere in the middle.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
