THE FERRARI 308

Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB, Ferrari's second V8 road car, marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor's underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. An exhilarating driver's car and a Ferrari purist's delight, the 308 and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This smart, early production 308 GTB was completed in August of 1977, in the very rare color combination of Verde Pinot over Tan leather. Only 2,185 examples of this model were built between 1976 and 1980, and this particular model is one of the most preferred by collectors, as a carbureted Coupe version. Largely original, this 308 GTB received its 30k Major Service in December of 2016, which included a new timing belt, gaskets, o-rings, seals and tensioner bearings, axle boots, fluids, filters, reservoir caps, the correct Michelin XWX tires mounted on original Cromadora wheels with alloy valve stems, plus an R134A air-conditioning conversion and recharge. Genuine Ferrari spare parts was used where possible. Inspection verified that the electronics remain in good working order, including the clock. It was also noted that the undercarriage and engine compartment shows remarkably well, with most original finished intact. The elegant Verde Pinot paint remains in largely original condition, and bears an authentic patina for 40 years of driving with only minor blemishes. Both stowage compartments are orderly, with the vinyl cover over the spare tire assembly up front, and a working zippered cover in the rear luggage compartment. Also, included in the sale are the jack and tool roll.

Celebrating its 40th birthday this year with less than 41,000 miles on the odometer, this desirable carbureted Coupe with rare factory livery, is one of the most collectible V8 Ferrari models, and promises many more years of exhilarating driving to come.
