1989 Ferrari Mondial T Cabriolet
Chassis no. ZFFFK33A7L0087198
Introduced in 1980 to provide a practical and compact addition to the Ferrari line, the Mondial featured a transversely mounted carbureted 3.0 liter V8 shared with the 308. Like the 308, the Mondial was continuously developed and saw the adoption of fuel injection, four valve cylinder heads, and eventually an increase in displacement to 3.2 liters. The styling was freshened as well, with integrated color-coded bumpers and more attractive front end styling. When the 348 was introduced, the Mondial was substantially upgraded as well, including the adaptation of the 348's 3.4 liter 300hp V8, which was now longitudinally mounted. The interior was freshened significantly as well, and it became the Mondial t. These last of the line cars represent significant mechanical and functional improvements over earlier examples, rather than just being superficial facelifts.

This particular car is a fully-serviced 31,000 mile car that has always been in the dry climate of Southern California. It was sold new in March of 1990, and comes with paperwork and records from new. The car has been conscientiously maintained, with a 30k service completed at 29,706 miles, and another subsequent engine-out belt and seal service completed in November of 2006 at Caribou Engineering. This service included the replacement of the belts, many new seals, new clutch and clutch hydraulics, new brake pads, rear main seal, and rebuilt rear shocks. The total cost of $9708.04. Since then it has had several thousand more dollars spent on it.

Cosmetically, this car is predominantly original and has been well-preserved. There are no major dents or bodily damage, just a few minor scratches and light road wear to the frontal areas. The wheels are excellent.

The interior is similarly nice, with excellent dash, carpets, and door panels. The seats are very nice, remaining supple and exhibiting minimal wear.

The engine compartment, front compartment, and trunk are all original, clean, and well-kept. There are no significant signs of molestation or surprises. An aftermarket stereo with external amplifier and CD changer has been fitted. The car runs and drives as it should, with enjoyable performance and handling.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a usable, practical, and well-cared for 'Family Ferrari'. This is the last and best development of the Mondial, which is the only factory-built four seat convertible Ferrari, and this particular example is ready to enjoy. It comes with manuals and the original and complete tool case.
