The V8 Ferraris
Introduced as a replacement for the V6-powered 246 Dino, the 308GT4 received an all new, DOHC V8 engine, with a displacement just under three liters. The new engine powered a model-range of Ferraris that still runs to this day at the Maranello works, the current 458 being the latest iteration. With the power-plant placed transversely above the rear axle, these cars proved to be agile handlers, and their relative affordability makes them a great entree to the world of Ferrari ownership. Many V8-models have come and gone over the past four decades; most memorable being the 288GTO model of the mid-1980s, the supercar of its day, and the more usable 308 and 328 models of the same era.
The Motorcar Offered
As specified on the original window-sticker, this elegant 328GTS was delivered new through Ferrari of Houston, Texas, in 1989, the final production year for the model. It was finished as seen today, in Azzurro blue metallic over a red leather interior, a rarely seen and striking combination, and fitted with the newly introduced ABS brakes. The car remained in the Houston area with its first owner, who had its first service performed at Ferrari of Houston. With just over 2,000 miles on the odometer, the blue 328 relocated to Pennsylvania, where it has remained ever since, in the car of one East Coast owner until recently.
Many service records are with the car, attesting to a devoted maintenance plan mostly performed by authorized Ferrari service center Algar Enterprises, Inc. in Rosemont, Pennsylvania. In May 2012, the major service was performed, including replacement of the timing belt and cam cover gaskets, and refurbishment of the water pump. With fewer than 20,000 miles from new, this Ferrari presents exceptionally well today. Offered with the original maintenance and owner's handbooks, the CARFAX report and the original tool roll, this beautiful 328GTS offers open top Ferrari touring in elegant Pininfarina style, at an affordable and attractive price when compared with its older and younger siblings.
