We are pleased to offer 1981 Ferrari 512 BB s/n 35767, a one-family-owned, California smog legal, carbureted boxer, with the elusive California BAR door sticker and only 25,112 miles. Starts instantly, purrs at idle like a 3,000 pound tomcat and pulls cleanly to redline as Enzo intended. Runs and drives extremely well, light steering, crisp shocks and great brakes. Excellent gear box, syncros, including second gear when cold and the correct clutch release. This 512 BB has been fastidiously well maintained, is well-documented from new and is fully serviced and ready to go. In August of this year 512 BB s/n 35767 was treated to an engine out cam-belt service and water pump rebuild by Mike Rozenstraten’s Ferrari Service of Costa Mesa, invoice #5211. All service invoices back to 2004 are on file. Finished in very nice Rossa Corsa paint which we believe to be all original and never repainted or touched up. Has the black “Boxer bottom”, with nice, original tan leather interior with black “insert” stripes and an “as-new” dash without the shrinkage so common on most Boxers. Has the attractive, desirable, and original 9″ rear “Boxer” wheels with correct Michelin XWX tires.

This unusually nice 512 BB was sold new on 01 April 1981 by S.A. Garage Francorchamps, the Ferrari importer for Belgium, and was imported to LAX on April 20, 1981 and legalized for the US and for California by Trend Imports. Sold new to an LA based doctor and documented back to the delivery papers from Trend Imports on 03 June, 1981. This pampered Boxer has always been extremely well maintained and detailed. Complete back to the warranty card from Garage Francorchamp, the owner’s manual, parts book and pouch, all tools and their briefcase, the jack kit, the road side safety reflectors and the correct thin spare. Only 25,112 total miles from new.

The carbureted Boxers are much faster than the injected Boxers, and with only 929 carbureted BBs built, the carbureted Boxers have always been more desirable. This car is exceptionally nice, needs absolutely no excuses made and will not disappoint. Fully serviced at a cost of $7,719.66 by Mike Rozenstraten’s Ferrari Service of Costa Mesa. Just completed a detailed pre-sale inspection. We welcome a detailed pre–purchase inspection. Considerably faster than a Daytona and priced right at $159,950 or best offer.
