The UK boys and girls are the ones quite happy to offload their rusty cars to Oz. It is the long history of major corrosion and poor maintenance of UK cars that prejudices them here.

However, it's a free country and you can buy whatever Ferrari you like.

The simple fact is, that when it comes to resale time, a locally delivered car will sell faster and usually at a higher price. This applies to all the higher production volume models, rare cars are of course a world market.

All correct, but what's the cut off? when I was contemplating selling the 308 it was still the first question. Same with boxers and testas..... So Dino and Daytona?

Not sure. I think RHD carby 308 GTB's are now a world market, possibly 550's too.

Its insured for 230k with NRMA VVC. But insured value is always more than what it would sell for so I guess its only worth what someone would pay for it.

No Problem

I found that NRMA have been the best so for and half the price of what Shannons were charging. They are always happy to insure at inspected value. The only restriction is can only drive 10 times a month. Im lucky to get 1 drive these days

Curious thing about this is it's a relatively recent phenomenon - I don't remember this ever being an issue 15 years ago EXCEPT to say countries that salt roads have always been red flags. Somewhere along the line, 'British rust buckets ' seems to have morphed into non -Aus delivered?

Largely because there are basically the only RHD market to have a local price higher than the Aus price....

I really wanted to buy your GTB at the time as it was the car I always wanted but couldn't afford the price you were asking for it,not to say that you were asking a high price,actually it was a good buy at that price,unfortunately it was just above my financial limit..

Having said that when I was in the market for a 328,
I had a choice of only 4 that were for sale,,

Your GTB (import) an aussie GTS which was rough and had 78000kms,another uk import GTS with 35000 miles that was located in melbourne that sold for $85k before I got a chance to look at it and my uk GTS which had 18000 miles which were all documented with service history and the MOT slips..

The 3 GTS's were all priced at more or less the same price with your GTB from memory around $10k more but from the pics I saw and all the work you had put into the engine bay it was worth it,,
Oh there was another Uk GTB with very low miles on it that was for sale for $135k from memory,it was a garage queen with all current services but it was like new..

I bought my car because it was the best GTS out of the 3 that were for sale at the time,and for even 6 months after I had bought my car there were still not many 328's for sale..

So my point was out of the 4 that were for sale at the time,3 uk cars sold within a month and the aussie car failed to sell,for at least a year after I had bought my car,then I lost track of what happened to it..

It failed to sell cause the car wasn't up to scratch for the money the seller was asking format the time regardless of where it came from..

I'm not naive about the stigma that comes with an import,but I think like I bought my car,some other sucker would buy it too..😁

Six months ago I was offered $150k for my car, I turned it down cause;
a) there isn't another car that I like that I could replace it with for that money,
c) I love my car and that amount of money won't change my life one bit..if it were $500k then yeah that's different..

I know some of you might think
c) cause I'm an idiot..

I don't have a vested interest even though my car is a uk car because I never plan on selling it,ever..
it will go to my kids and they'll have to worry about the import curse..😊
