THE FERRARI 308 GTB

Ferrari introduced the 308 GTB at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 featuring a dramatic Pininfarina designed body and a mid-mounted four cam V8 with quadruple Weber twin choke carburetors. Bodies were initially constructed in fiberglass, but after 712 examples were produced the switch was made to steel bodywork because the fiberglass coachwork was of poor quality and weight saving was minimal versus steel construction. Production continued only through 1979 during which time just 2,185 steel bodied carbureted 308 GTB's were produced for all world markets.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Striking in the stealthy combination of black over a black interior, this dry sump 308 GTB is a sporting example of Ferrari's popular V8 sports car. Originally delivered in Italy, as evidenced in this car's history file, this European specification 308 retains its original dry sump V8 engine and correct single exhaust setup.

Recently, this Ferrari went through a thorough mechanical restoration and cosmetic refresh. On top of the standard major servicing including belts and a new water pump, the engine has been overhauled with new pistons, new valves, and guides, and new seals and gaskets throughout the drivetrain, and a new clutch. The fuel system was summarily addressed as well, with cleaned fuel tanks, new lines, and rebuilt carburetors. The brakes have been rebuilt along with the suspension system, with new bearings, shocks, and bushings at all four corners. This extensive mechanical work is all documented in a restoration file that accompanies this car.

Cosmetically, the black leather seats and carpeting were replaced to freshen up the interior and elevate the driving experience, on par with the mechanical attention this 308 received. The paintwork, while not original, is an older repaint that remains in excellent condition and the Leonardo Fioravanti designed body is arrow-straight, its vents and slats blending subtly into the black paintwork.

After the completion of its refresh, this 308 was displayed at the Hilton Head Concours d'Elegance, where it won the 2017 Crescent Award, telling of its fine presentation. Overall, this 308 is mechanically and aesthetically sound and well-presented throughout. Along with the mechanical restoration file, this 308 is accompanied by its original books and tool kit.
