1978 Ferrari 308 GTB For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVEEstimate:$75,000 - $95,000 A rare, well preserved, carbureted 308 GTBTiming belt service completed in 2017Finished in its original colors of Nero over BeigeCorrect owner’s manual, tool kit and spare tire included The Ferrari 308 GTB was launched at the Paris Motorshow in 1975 and superseded the Dino 246 GT as Ferrari’s mid-engined sportscar offering. It was an instant hit; a tempting combination of curvaceous bodywork, courtesy of Fioravanti of Pininfarina, and approachable performance thanks to a low kerb weight and punchy V-8 engine. A sprint to 60 mph was dispatched in 6.6 seconds and top speed was the interesting side of 150 mph, with power coming from the all-new 237 bhp F106AB V-8 engine, featuring dual belt-driven over camshafts for each bank and four twin-choke Weber 40DCNF carburetors.This particular dual-distributor example was delivered through Ferrari of Los Gatos in 1979 and retains California blue plates. It presents in very good condition throughout, with its Nero paintwork retaining a deep shine and believed to be original in places. The paintwork, though glossy, displays numerous imperfections due to aging. The car retains all of its original glass, including a California emissions decal, and is fitted with a very rare Blaupunkt Bamberg Stereo. Inside, the gentle patina showing on the beige leather is evidence of a lifetime spent with loving owners. A major service was carried out in 2017 and performed by DriverSource of Houston, Texas. This included a full belt change with tensioners, various gaskets, seals, filters and fluids. Parts were sourced from Ferrari of Houston, along with a new battery and a set of Michelin XWX tires. More recently, new rear Koni shocks were installed together with Superformance springs and new control arm bushings. It should be noted that the smog pump is no longer with the car. However, an owner’s manual, tool kit, and matching spare tire complete the package.The 308 GTB is revered as one of the most enjoyable and approachable classic Ferraris. This enticing carbureted example is sure to provide enormous enjoyment for its next keeper. Please note that due to California emissions, this vehicle must be sold to a dealer or out-of-state resident.
