308 GTB Dry Sump 30k miles low ownership

3 previous owners. Same family ownership from 1985 to my purchase in 2016. The car was bare metal repainted by the previous owner in 2016. I have a small collection of cars and finally got around to recommissioning the car this year. The following work has just been carried out:
Full engine service including belts and carburettors tuned.
All suspension removed, powder coated, refitted and aligned with all new bushings and dampers.
New correct Michelin XWX.
All brake calipers checked, cleaned and restored to original appearance.
Air conditioning system converted and restored with new Compressor.
New electric window motors fitted.
The car now drives beautifully and looks fantastic. These carburettor cars have so much more character than the later cars. A pure analog driving experience and very rare with such low mileage and ownership.
I have just completed nearly 500 miles of everyday use and the car has performed faultlessly.
All books and original Schedoni key fobs present.
Car sold new by Reg Vardy in Houghton-Le-Spring to a Mr. Gray on 14/ 11/ 79. Factory A/ C car Rosso Corsa on Nero.
Acquired by the second owner on 18/ 01/ 1985. Subsequently gifted to his son on 18/ 07/ 1997.
