    I recently acquired a beautiful Ferrari 308 GTSi Quattrovalvole. It was a 2 owner California car with most of original paperwork and all maintenance records included. Meticulously maintained, belts completed less than 1000 miles ago, and all service up to date. It only has 41K miles on it and was recently inspected by one of the most well known and respected Ferrari specialists(Andy Falbo) who praised it and gave it a "clean bill of health". This car, which is the most sought after of the 308s is easily an 8.5/9 out of 10 and is being offered as I now have plans to move out of the country in a few months. It has been driven less than 200 miles(to the Ferrari shop mostly) since acquiring and is a must see for those of you who know about these years and models. This is the perfect addition for the serious Ferrari collector who isn't afraid to take their garage queens out for a spin.

    After speaking with a few people, I don't believe the seats are original to the car. They are Ferrari seats with emblem in the headrest, but again not certain they are original. Same goes for the floor mats. Other than that, everything to my knowledge is original, impeccably maintained, and it runs strong. I did have it listed a few places for sale but wasn't super active with it until now as I need to move soon.

    Location: Scottsdale, AZ
    Price: $79K
    VIN#: ZFFMA13A9D0047737

    I feel it's priced aggressively to move for the condition it's in. Feel free to ask questions and bare with me as this is my first time owning and selling a Ferrari. I will answer everything to the best of my knowledge and as quickly as possible. I appreciate you taking a look and wish I could keep her, but it doesn't make sense now. It will be near impossible to import her into where I'm going.

    A few things I know for sure:
    It has not been driven much in the last 14 years or so as the tires are from 2005 and have a ton of tread.
    The rear engine hatch doesn't close completely on the driver side but this is just the latch that needs adjusted and the shop didn't have time the day I had it inspected.
    Paint is in amazing condition all over
    Original spare in intact as well as took kit
    Interior is in good condition and could use a professional cleaning all around. I wasn't sure the best way or place to do this so haven't touched it
    It has been sitting under a custom cover(specifically for this year and car) and is started once a week
    All mechanics work, including windows.
    Has the optional alarm that was installed but does not work, at least to my knowledge
    Was purchased at Walnut Creek Ferrari brand new in '83

    That was my fault. I completely forgot to put it. All has been added. Thanks for letting me know.

    The seat backs and bottoms are the correct pattern and look like stock seats. I don't think there was any option for headrest decorations back then but a lot of people added them if they re-covered the seats. They do look in the one overhead picture like maybe a slightly different shade than the center console? The floor mats look like Keith Collins or similar mats. Pretty plush right? Great looking car!!

    It is indeed still for sale. It has been shipped to Las Vegas and may possibly end up at the Ferrari dealership by end of week. Should you have an interest, feel free to contact me directly.
