1981 Ferrari 512 BB s/n 37235. European model. Fastidiously well maintained and well documented from the date first sold. It is in Euro–spec as Enzo intended and does not have the usual ugly Federalized bumpers, side marker lights, and power killing catalysts and smog equipment. The headers and exhaust have never been cut up. Finished in superb original Rossa Corsa paint, without the usual black “Boxer bottom”. Has an extremely nice black leather interior with the delivery plastics still on the sills. The dash is “as–new” without the shrinkage so common on most Boxers. Has the attractive and desirable 9″ rear “Boxer” wheels with as–new Goodyear Eagle tires. Extremely well detailed and better–than–new engine compartment. Fully serviced by John Hajduk, Motorkraft and needs nothing. Has all tools, briefcase, owner’s manual, parts book, warranty book and warranty card, the leather pouch and the thin spare. The carbureted Boxers are much faster than the BBis. Only 929 carbureted BBs built. This car is exceptionally nice and needs absolutely no excuses made.
