Features

1985 USA model 308 GTB QV s/n 53447, a fully serviced, well documented, no stories one long term owner southern California 308 GTB. All major mechanical components have been serviced through its life and so the engine, transmission, brakes and suspension work as new. This is a wonderful driving 308 GTB QV, the syncros work smoothly, the clutch is light to use, grips quickly and the car can be thrown into corners with total ease and confidence. Performance is excellent thanks to the smooth power curve of the last evolution of the 308 GTB engine. The body is exceptionally straight and dent free. The Ferrari red Rosso Corsa paint is nearly flawless and the leather is in unusually nice condition. There is no evidence of accident or rust repairs to the body, underside or chassis. The body, paint and interior are all original and in superb condition. The trim, gaskets, window glass and lenses are also in excellent condition. The black rubber bumpers are excellent with no discoloration. It is fitted from new with the Factory optional 16 inch wheels with near new 205/55 VR 16″ front and 225/50 VR 16″ rear Pirelli P Zero tires. The interior is finished in exceptionally nice black leather and like everything else on this Ferrari, they look like they are from a near new car. The door panels, carpets and dash are also all in excellent condition and look near new. The car makes excellent power with no smoke, and has excellent oil pressure. The suspension is firm yet compliant, and the brakes stop the car effectively and evenly. Second gear synchro is very good, both when warm and cold. All the switches and gauges are fully operational, including the Blaupunkt radio. There are only 25 miles since this Ferrari had a $8,100.86 engine-out cam-belt 30k service, and a full A/C service. 308 GTB QV s/n 53447 is complete and comes with a voluminous service and ownership file, a copy of the original California “pink slip” title dated 19 Dec., 1984, the original sales brochure delivered with the car when new, the warranty card with the original owner’s name confirming only one owner until a few months ago, the owner’s carrying pouch and all books, the tool roll and all tools, the jack kit, car cover, emergency light, and dash cover. Even has a correct 16″ spare wheel and tire! 308 GTB QV s/n 53447 is in amazingly nice condition for a 30 year old Ferrari and has obviously been a “One-Long-Term-Owner, Pride of Ownership” Ferrari. The best and the last of the user-friendly 308 GTB series, just serviced and with only 39,714 miles
