All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.
This 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB, in left hand drive, is one of the first of the steel bodied 308s and as it’s a fixed-roof berlinetta there should be no temptation to don a Hawaiian shirt or grow a thick moustache to be seen out in it.
Originally supplied in the south of France to its one and only owner, we understand that the car spent its early years near Barcelona, around 17 years off the road and then a few years in Monaco before being imported into and registered in the UK in 2008. This great-looking Rosso Corsa (racing red) berlinetta with carburettor and dry-sump engine has covered just 39,000 km - that’s less than 1,000 km a year on average.
Largely, and wonderfully, original and unrestored, it comes with standard wheels and its original chin spoiler - something that many owners have modified - all handbooks and correct Ferrari branded wallet (owner’s manual, warranty card book with early service stamps plus sales and service manual) and full original jacking and toolkits in their bags, which are rare and worth good money today. It has also just received a significant service/overhaul including cambelts.
The bodywork presents in great condition and the super finish of the paint suggests that this car has been garaged and well looked after for all of its jet-set life. There are a few small cracks or splits in the paint in the seams around the engine cover/boot opening but otherwise the more visible expanses of gorgeous rosso corsa paint are very strong indeed. As you would expect, the vulnerable front valance, chin spoiler and wheelarch lip surfaces are coated in a body-coloured stone guard finish. There are no signs of corrosion on the body, including around those wheelarch lips. This 308 is quantifiably better than most of those out there.
The black trims around the car are also largely sound although the top-most lacquer on the driver’s door window frame has peeled off in places and there are a few scuffs on the leading edge of the door mirror. Tiny details, and nothing that couldn’t be rectified relatively easily so they present as well as the rest of the car.
The original 14” Speedline alloy wheels are in good order for their age with the odd scuff here and there and a slight bend in the left rear outer rim. All have matching Pirelli tyres which were newly fitted in 2019.
As you can see in the photo gallery, for a 42 year old car this is a real beauty - but you don’t have to take our word for it, we’re looking after this 308 during the auction at our facility in Oxfordshire so why not use the ‘Contact Seller’ button at the top of the page to arrange to get a much closer look.
