    This 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB is in finished in Giallo Yello trimmed with tan leather to match the carpet and door panels and shows just 56,000 miles. It is a US market example that was sold new at Hollywood Beverly Hills Car Co in Beverly Hills, California and remained with the first owner until 2016. I purchased the car in 2016 from the original owner (after two years searching for a great 70's GTB) and have performed several major services (performed by European Car Specialists in Newport Beach and most recently by renowned Competizione & Sports Cars in Maryland) and included a timing belt replacement, rebuilt carbs, electronic ignition, seal replacements etc. totaling nearly $25k in invoices

    Power comes from a carburated 2.9-liter V8 paired with 5-speed manual gearbox, and modifications include a Birdman Fusebox, an aftermarket stereo (original comes with the car) and Pertronix ignition. Shod with correct Michelin tires.

    A fire extinguisher has been added behind the driver’s seat, and the A/C system was converted to R134 and charged.

    All instruments function great. AC blows cold.

    Highly original CA car, recently moved to DC in September 2018.

    This is an honest car - everything works – an excellent driver that always draws smiles. It drives as a Ferrari should – quick off the line, never overheats, solid and stable at speed. A rare opportunity to own a 2-owner early carb-model Ferrari 308 GTB in one of the most desirable years, a rare color combination and maintained the right way.

    Thanks for looking - and for the kind comments - it's a fantastic car. One of the "good ones". I'm hopeful to find someone who really appreciates these cars - if they're going to be anywhere, they're likely to be here on FerrariChat... All the best --Justin
