From the two number plate lights on the bumper, I would say it is a late model 1963 or 1964 Giulietta Sprint coupe.

Earlier cars, 1962 and earlier, had an airplane shaped number plate light above the number plate.

Also, only in the late model Giulietta Sprints, were the reversing lamps, integrated into the tail-light unit.

1965 had a trunk latch below the number plate, which required an indentation in the rear bumper, which this car does not have.

I visited the HMCI stall at the Auto Expo (numberous times!) with many friends and acquaintences. While looking at this Graham Paige, my uncle pointed out something very strange - the braking system. Look carefully.

A pity that a nice pair of Vanguard tail-lights had to be sacrificed for this job though! 'wish I could have those!

Rightly said Stanher. Mods / Experts here I would like to mention that lets have a team related to Team Bhp Market place where absurd prices are being quoted as a result the number of view is quite phenomenal but the vehicle is not sold.
