1984 Ferrari 400i Serial Number 50807
We are pleased to offer 1984 Ferrari 400i s/n 50807. This 400i was special ordered by Greg Garrison with a 5-speed manual transmission, finished from new in Watermelon paint with a beige leather interior and a request to Pininfarina “to think of special things to add to this car.” As a result of Garrison’s close ties to both Maranello and Pininfarina, this car features many rare modifications and characteristics that set it apart from other 400is. It has a number of upgrades based on the forthcoming 412, such as color coded bumpers, electric seats and unique chrome trim. The hood scoop is two-and-a-half times larger than on other 400is. The interior is fitted with front and rear A/C and has a double-insulated leather headliner, extra sound deadening and heat-resistant panels, specifically designed for desert driving conditions.
Introduced at the 1976 Paris Auto Show, the Ferrari 400 Series were the latest 2+2s to continue Ferrari’s tradition of offering true four-passenger luxury sport-touring cars fitted with every possible amenity and signaled the first time a factory-installed automatic was an option. The sedate but attractive Pininfarina designed body was accented by five-spoke magnesium wheels. This 400i is powered by a 4823cc V-12 engine with dual overhead cams and 315 horsepower and is fitted with the much more desirable five-speed manual gearbox offering much better performance than the more common automatic transmission.
The current owner purchased 50807 in 2007 from the Gooding & Company Monterey auction representing the Garrison estate. This two-owner 400i has only 58,684 miles from new and is a rare opportunity to own a unique “one-off” Ferrari with dual A/C and five speed performance at a truly affordable price. Priced at only $39,500.
