    I will be putting up for sale my 1987 328 GTS, rosso corsa with tan interior. It has 37,900 miles on the clock. Vin 73443. She has the original tool kit and manual, spare tire, etc., and service paperwork going back about 28 years.

    This car is located in Boston, but it spent almost all of its life in Arizona (never driven in rain) and still has AZ plates. It has logged less than 1000 miles since I moved to Boston in 2017. It was originally purchased in SoCal and driven there for a year or two before it changed hands between friends in AZ. It has been well cared for throughout and driven with respect for its heritage.

    The car was cared for in its early days by Scottsdale Ferrari, and then kept in fine form by noted mechanic Alex Traverso. Alex did the major service in Sept 2010 (32,900) and the last belt service in Oct 2015 (37,100). Some of the usual bugs have been fixed since I bought her in 2013, including a resoldered light switch stalk, new ignition switch, new throttle cable, new trunk release cable, etc. It is currently in for a service and check-over, and is getting a new coolant hose (head-to-heater). (Convenient for a quick PPI!)

    I am looking at procuring a Cayman GT4 as more of a track toy, and don’t have room for both.

    $68,950

    More pics to come.

    Sorry, yes, my mechanic is very fussy about hoses, so the car has been in the shop a little longer than expected until he could get one he was happy with. Will get some detailed pics up asap.

    No, just a check-up, oil change, brake flush, and the aforementioned coolant hose.

    And just to correct my oral history above, the original owner had the car until 1998 (PPI was done at 10,731 miles). Second owner brought it to AZ and sold it in Jan 2000 with 16,050 miles.

    First service records I have are the PPI and an annual service from 1998. Then I have the regular service records since then, including the belt services in 2000 and 2004 (done by Scottsdale Ferrari) and 2010 and 2015 (by Alex Traverso). Valves and new clutch were done at 25,000.

    If all goes to plan, we'll be at the Audrain Auto Museum Cars and Coffee tomorrow morning in Newport, RI (at McAulay Hall) in case anyone wants to take a look. Though driving it down here gives me second thoughts about selling it. ‍♀️

    Apologies, my new mechanic (Dave Angeloni) did such a wonderful job spiffing up the car for sale that I have reconsidered. I can't quite give it up just yet. I am going to keep it for a while longer -- most likely through the belt service next year, at least. I meant to update the status of the thread.

    At least I stopped before it was too late.... Might still be tempted by a 430, tho.
