1986 Ferrari 412 Automatic s/n 61837. EPA/DOT releases for all 50 States by Amerispec. 24,627 miles. Looks and drives like new. Mechanically excellent, passed the California smog test with flying colors. Over the last 5,000 miles the belts, hoses, brake pads, trunk solenoids, all fluids, fuses and bulbs have been serviced or replaced. All switches, gauges, and accessories are fully operational, including the electronic window, bonnet, and trunk switches. A high quality repaint was done, only three notable paint chips: two between the headlights and one in the passenger’s door. All four wheels, stainless and plastic trim, and lenses and gasketing are all near perfect. The US specification sidemarker lights have been skillfully added in the seam between the body work and bumpers as to not detract from the lines.

The interior is also near perfect with clean and soft leather, excellent headliner, door panels, plastic trim, and carpets. The dash and console leather has a few minor scratches in selected areas, but shows no discoloration, shrinkage or splitting. The engine compartment is completely stock, original and nicely detailed, as is the trunk. Fitted with the correct Michelin tires and complete with the full tool roll, jack and jack bag, spare wheel, manual and manual holder, and records for the current ownership period. Both mechanically and cosmetically ready to enjoy.
