    1986 Mondial 3.2 QV
    hard top
    Prugna Metalica
    59,000 miles

    706-379-9939

    I bought this car five years ago and drove it 15,000 as my daily driver and never towed in.
    - Runs great, shifts great and clutches great. (Entire rebuilt hydraulic clutch system).
    - Starts great. One reason is I installed the WR-1 intermediate solinoid.
    - Front disc brakes replaced.
    - All four CV joints and boots replaced.

    - New Bosch starter installed.
    - Sun roof works and is reportedly modified to prevent some sort of malfunction. Never malfunctioned for me.
    - Left window lift excellent.
    - Right window lift lethargic but is a bit better then when I bought it.

    - Wipers work when it is raining or in car wash.
    - Sun roof and left rear window leak in car wash and I use wide painters tape. (Included ;-)
    - Large deep discharge battery installed.
    - All engine and tranny seals replaced but makes little difference on drips.

    - Carpets are out of the car and need cleaning.
    - Horn compressor is out of the car (battery replacement required it and never reinstalled)
    - Winshield washer tank assembly is out of car for same reason above.
    - Interior is in very good shape.

    - Paint is shiny but front louvers show small pits in leading edge.
    - Body has two significant parking lot dings estimated $600 repair, but not all that terrible.
    - Driver door slightly indented probably fixed without painting.
    - Heating/AC inoperable. Strong fan sometimes works, mostly not. Natural air flow gives lots of heat.

    - Power. I ran several speed only runs at invitation-only 1/2 drag race. Best speed was 115 mph shifting
    at 6,000 rpm. All higher rpms were slower by 1-2 mph.
    - I drive it 15 miles every six weeks and today it started on first turn of key.
    Major service due in a bit more then 1,000 miles. Cam belts replaced in 2013 and now have 15,000 miles.
    They are not difficult to replace but the only belt failures I have ever heard of were with newly
    installed belts. If I keep the car I do not plan a major service.

    I am having trouble uploading photos but will keep trying.

    Most likely needs the climate control computer. I think its Bosch.

    Typically the temp control valve, and the fuse box. Two weak points for the HVAC in Mondials.

    I couldn't stand it, Prugna is such a unique color I did some digging and found some historical pics. Hope the OP doesn't mind!

    I like it, is it the car NOW or from an earlier date? Did you own it previously?

    Not my car, I've only owned 1 Ferrari and still have it. Pictures are posted elsewhere in FChat. All I did was dig. They're all old pictures.

    Seems he may actually be ill.

    I called and the friend of his whom handles the cars for sale was straight forward.

    Vipers, Aston, and the Mondial/Testarossa for sale.

    Hope all goes well for him and his family.

    Which of these images are actually the car for sale, and not a random purple mondial?

    Last set of photos is a Mondial with NJ plates and different wheels. Not relevant to this sale. Post deleted.

    And guys, read the classified rules. Stick at the top of the forum.

    Gratuitous "nice car" "GLWS" and other posts are no longer allowed. (notice all the deletions in this thread by Yin?)

    Thx,
