    Ask $85k OBO- please No lowballing as you know the value of a sorted out 308. Car is located in San Diego, CA. mileage may marginally increase as I drive and enjoy her.

    1985 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole is finished in Prugna over tan leather upholstery, and it is powered by a fuel-injected 2.9-liter V8 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. NO sticky second gear - smooth shifting. Stock for the most part - original for all parts upgrades or reliability mods. Seats were refreshed two owners ago - assuming 4 owners but no direct provenance to confirm. Normal wear and tear with stone chips in the original PRUGNA paint with some touch up.
    There are reportedly 12 or 16 PRUGNA cars in the US according to the QV register and other sources. Car Manual, Jack, emergency light, seat covers and old expansion tank are included with the car. Top is in great shape and seals/closes well. Window motors are original.
    Bridgman Fusebox upgraded by previous owner.

    Equipment includes a removable roof panel, staggered-width 16″ wheels, air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a Pioneer
    NEX3500 flip up screen single DIN unit.

    Very cool looking car. On this side of the pond, I would be a potential buyer. I am sure it will sell fast.

    LOL isn’t everyone looking for a great deal. the issue with vintage cars is that unless they are sorted out - the great deal can turn into a money pit and there goes the deal.

    Nice updated details in the engine bay: Plenum, covers and plug wires. Little touches make a day and night difference IMO. Air box is dying for a stencil tho and one vale stem cap o_O Nice car! Interior looks great.

    Thanks.
    I’m looking for a stencil, there was one on eBay then - not. I just got another set of 4 stem covers so will be replacing it this weekend. Am going to lock them down with the screw lock to keep them from vibrating off.
