I think you owners are in for a big surprise soon. Only 410 of these cars made! Of course, you all know that! But if a 1962 Corvette is bringing $65 to $120,000.00 it won't be long.
I know we all HOPE so but the day is soon coming when the Jalpa in first class shape will break the 100,000.00 mark! I really believe this. Now there are several of those 410 - the wrecked/ burnt ones that are exceptional. And just like the 1957 thru 1962 Corvettes of which their are MANY, MANY, more than Jalpas. By the way my Jalpa has the mirror installed on the passenger front fender. In front of the passenger door. They are electric and there are NO holes in the door for the mirror. Looks like it was that way from the factory. In 1984. The turbo mirror. as ANYONE ever seen a photo of this type anywhere on the Jalpa? I have seen a few Countach's (early/ mid) done this way. I would love to find out WHO this car was originally built for? My car has just over 9,000 kilo's. on the odo. It has been in storrage for since I have owned it starting in 1990. The previous owner had it garaged for 4 that I know of and possibly longer. It rarely got driven. I am sure I wll have some issues whenever I start to fire it up. It has been dry all this time and on blocks (jack stands). I need a windshield is my problem. I am a retired teacher and will not pay what they are asking for a windscreen! A fella from the UK told me he used a US van windscreen and had it cut down with a water jet. I need to know which van and I need a pattern from someone who has a glass. My car bumped a palm tree in between the headlights. Since fixed with a complete front end from another Jalpa so there is one less.
