    it's not a QV, it's an early 2V 308GTS worth about $60k depending on the engine which could drag it down to $50k

    how do you figure that? 355ch is worth much more in AUS than a 360ch, you know. i'd say you got ripped!

    i know...but that's the reason.

    obviously the 360 is a better car....but there are just no buyers (practically) for them

    from my point of view, there'd be very little difference in performance on the road, and a 355ch has windows that open properly and air conditioning (never mind proper rego)

    If it's a 70's Alfa, even with tan trim I bet it has black armrests! The 7500 mile 2000GTV I drove a few weeks back was like that. They must have had some colourblind people in the trim fitting section at Arese...

    Is anyone from F-chat familiar with the 1998 F355 Berlinetta (yellow) that has been for sale for a long time at Exclusive Cars in Perth, Tasmania? It has 23,000km on the clock but the asking price still seems a little on the high side at $189,990 for what it is. I also thought that anything post 1997 was a 355F1 with the F1 gearbox but this appears to be a stick shift 6spd manual.

    The pics seem to indicate that it has the CF race seats though, so thats a nice little bonus.

    Are these cars selling for $180K?? I have seen a few for sale for a while now, so I doubt it. Go check out that cheap red 95 355 in Vic. Or get someone to look at it for ya if you want a 355. Is ony $130K. Hell, even I am tempted. :p I dont know anything about it sorry. :)

    I've always loved Montreal's.I wanted to buy one but coluldn't find a good one so I bought the GT4.A friend if mine found a nice one that had the fuel injection upgraded to a Bosch set up instead of the crap SPICA set up.I test drove it and it went great.It was Red with black leather and he was going to get it for $23K but he chickened out at the last minute.If I had the garage space I would have bought it.

    355 F1 shift was always an option, never compulsory...

    but I don't know what allocation Ferrari sent to Australia..

    there are many 6 sp stick shifts around though...

    Phil on the topic of Alfa's did you ever find a car that you were looking for in the Alfa genre with the vintage of 1970?
    Or did you just bring the Boxer over instead?

    still open to suggestions on that one... Boxer was already mine so irrelevant to that quest...

    Dougie Daihatsu is on borrowed time.... I'd quite like a little quirky Italian runabout to replace it... ideally built/registered on either my or my wifes birthdays... 21/04/70 or 12/05/73

    I serviced a Montreal AGES ago in UK.. about 1990 ish I think... had the fuel pump re-calibrated too... wasn't a problem, ran beautifully. Nice cars, but too big/slow/cumbersome compared to GT4 etc

    I dont have a link to it sorry. It is in the new Unique Cars magazine, pages 186 and 187. Brents Presitge World, in North Melbourne. A red one. With Challenge seats in it too. :) Has crappy big chrome wheels on it. He also has 2 360's there among other puss buckets. Bored at work this morning around 3am, I calculated around $4.3million dollars worth of cars he is selling on those 2 pages in Unique Cars. :)

    That is a nice 360. They are getting cheaper and cheaper everyday. Wont be long before they crack the $200K I reckon. I should trade in the 348 on one I think. F430 and 599 are a little to expensive for me. Even a 360 is PUSHING it to the max for this bum. :)
