Anyone have a nice Mondial for sale here in Texas?

The title essentially sums it up. Does anyone have a nice Mondial here in our great State that they would consider parting with or know anyone that does?

My preference is for a 3.2 or QV Coupe, but would also consider a convertible and possibly a T.

Happy Summer!

There's a T for sale in the Dallas area

I don't know anything about it, nor do I have any affiliation with the seller.

1992 Ferrari Mondial | eBay

PS. Forgot to Add: QV Coupes may be hard to come by. I think there were only a grand total of 69 QV Couples imported/sold in North America.

Thanks Sid. It seems that there are even fewer 3.2 coupes around as well. Not many Ts either. Interestingly, there's a black 3.2 Coupe on CL in SA and a red 8 Coupe in DFW right now.

I was just wondering if anyone on the regional, Texas forum might know of any Mondials that aren't currently on the market.

Thanks!

From what I remember, Coupes are in very short supply.

In North America. After the "8", most Mondials sold were cabs.
I think that the situation in Europe was reversed, as most Mondials sold were Coupes and very few cabs were sold.

Except for Mondial 8's - which were only Coupes.

From memory - QV - 69 Total across all 3 years
3.2 - 85 Total
t - 43 Total


From personal experience - owning a Coupe is great (I have an 85 QV Coupe). It's quiet, comfortable, and the AC works reasonably well (keeps car cool on a 90 degree day). You can't go wrong with a coupe. The major downside is the lousy sunroof - which doesn[t work very well.

Hold out for a Euro coupe -- no sunroof!

I know you mentioned QV/3.2 (and even a T), but don't pass up a great condition 8 if one turns up. Sure, it's slower, but all of these cars are slow. (I personally would take a great condition 8 over a so-so condition QV/3.2 for the same money...)

Thanks Sid. I've watched the progress on your car and it looks great. You've done a wonderful job with it!

Great perspective on the 8.

Are either of you guys familiar with the 8 that's on Dallas CL right now? Nothing like a Ferrari off of CL...

I'm having a ball with my QV. Both in driving, and working on it. It's been a great car.

I'd purchase an 8 in a heartbeat. As for the one on CL, I haven't seen it, and don't know anything about it. IF the description is accurate, and the car looks anything like the pics, it seems to be a good deal -- with a favorable PPI of course.

I paid 25K for my QV Coupe 2 years ago, and this one appears to be in better shape cosmetically, than my car.

I think we are going to start seeing more Mondials. At the last car show I went to (Dallas British and All European show - in May) - there were 3 of us in the Italian area. That's the first time I've seen multiple Mondials at a single show!!! There was an 8 Coupe, my QV Coupe and a 3.2 Cab. It was really cool seeing all 3 together!

Good luck with your search!!!!

Sid

Check with Michael, at M Brandon Motorcars in Houston, he has a 3.2 coupe that he may part with. He's also a sponsor here.
