This absolutely amazing 348 has just arrived in stock with us this week. Finished in traditional Rosso Corsa with a contrasting crema interior with bordeaux red carpets with contrast piping. 44000 miles from new with a huge folder full of service history including a fully stamped service service book which also shows regular maintenance including regular cam belt changes and a number of clutches!
What makes this car very special indeed and probably the best value 348 currently available is the fact that it has undergone a catalogued, photographic restoration over the last 18 months by a well known Ferrari specialist in the South East. These works amounted to almost £40000 and comprised of the full car being completely stripped and the engine, gearbox and suspension were completely stripped and rebuilt.
Engine was subjected to a cylinder leakage test initially before the rebuild was undertaken, the engine stripped back to a bare block and camshafts removed and inspected, all followers checked before the seals and O rings were replaced. New cam belt, water pump and tensioners fitted before the timing was all set up correctly. The cam covers were then stripped, blasted and refinished in the correct crackle finish. All aluminium engine parts were vapour blasted. The inlet manifold and plenum chambers were then stripped and coated as well as all linkages replated. All the fuel rails and injectors were then ultrasonically cleaned before all gaskets, seals and o rings were replaced before engine reinstallation.
Gearbox was fully stripped and cleaned and drained of all oil, there were no leaks present. All linkages were stripped, cleaned and rebuilt also, clutch release bearing was upgraded to the far superior hills engineering item.
Suspension was fully overhauled also; new shock absorbers and spring platforms fitted, wishbones and springs were re powder coated before fitment, uprights stripped, vapour blasted and painted. Wheel bearings were replaced and all fittings zinc plated.
In addition to this there were a number of repairs required to the body which are also catalogued in the restoration folder.
The interior is in very good condition overall requiring some minor reconnolisation to the edge of the drivers seat and centre console (this will be undertaken as part of the sale by us)
We are confident that this is the best 348 currently available for sale anywhere, yes there are lower mileage cars that are much more money but none that have the level of expenditure and expertise that this car has recently received. Priced extremely competitively to sell .
Happy to look at interesting cars in part exchange modern or classic irrespective of value.
Export enquiries welcome.
