The Ferrari 328
Introduced as a replacement for the V6-powered 246 Dino, the 308GT4 of 1973 received an all new DOHC V8 engine, with a displacement just under three liters. The new engine powered a model-range of Ferraris that runs to this day at the Maranello works, the current 458 being the latest iteration. The 308 range grew to include GTB (berlinetta) and GTS (targa-top) models and became the most commercially successful Ferrari model to date by the late 1970s.
For 1985, the 308 GTB and GTS models were rejuvenated with the installation of a larger V8 engine, and the introduction of a number of styling improvements. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show that year, the 328 featured a redesigned radiator grill, bumpers painted in the body color, and a redesign of the classic, five-spoke star alloy wheels. Production continued through the end of the decade, and the 328 became the epitome of Ferrari V8 road cars of the era. Today, the 328 is increasingly sought-after as a clean and un-cluttered expression of classic Pininfarina styling.
The Motorcar Offered
Built in September of 1988, this exceptional 328 was specified for the US market, and was finished exactly as seen today, in classic Rosso Corsa red over a biscuit leather interior. It is quite a rare car, with only 1,345 328GTB berlinettas built during the four-year model run, versus 6,068 GTS targas. The new GTB found its first owner in Houston, Texas in March of 1989, where it is believed to have remained in a dry storage facility until the early 2000's, when it was purchased by its second owner, Arizona resident and Ferrari enthusiast Mr. Enzo Nudo, in 2003. At this point, the Ferrari was showing just over 1,300 miles, and remained in excellent original condition. The car stayed in Mr. Nudo's ownership for several years, averaging fewer than 1,000 miles per year, as documented in the CARFAX report. In 2007, Mr. Nudo showed the 328 at the Phoenix Concours, where it scored a much-deserved Platinum award. In 2008 the car was treated to a timing belt service, among other maintenance items. It would remain in Mr. Nudo's ownership until 2010, at which time it was purchased by another Arizona resident. The 328 would stay in the Copper State until recently.
Today this fine Ferrari remains in excellent condition, reflecting its low mileage and devoted custodianship of previous owners. A major service was recently performed at Algar Ferrari in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which included renewal of the timing belts. With just over 7,000 miles since new, this classic Ferrari is a usable collector's car that offers sporting Maranello driving
