    I bought this car almost 2 years ago and have only driven it about 1000 miles, maybe less. Car is rock solid and has been overall very reliable and easy to use. I mainly used it for weekend Cars and Coffee events and back-road cruises around town. Was a bucket list car to own, had a lot of fun memories in it with my 10 year old son, now it's time to move on to something else. I have owned over 20 sports cars over the years, so the car ownership experience is just a journey for me.

    Car came to me with close to $60k in service records, which I will list below. I spent a lot of time doing my due diligence before I bought this car, and that paid off. I hope that my hard work will now be to the benefit of the next lucky owner. Car has had 4 major belt services since it was sold off the showroom floor.

    The last timing belt change was done 7 years ago and 6k miles ago. I have had the belts scoped by a Ferrari mechanic 6 months ago and they were said to be in 'excellent' shape.

    Issues I know of:
    • Scratches under nose of car, mainly on passenger side near skid pad (common I hear)
    • Scratch under passenger side of car, way under the rocker panel, cannot be seen unless on a lift (easy touch up)
    • Slightly torn CV boots, I just noticed that a few weeks ago when I was putting the car on the lift
    • Drips a little oil when not driven for a few weeks, maybe a dime/quarter size in total
    • Wheel center caps are looking a bit old and have some cracks in them
    Comes with books, records and tool kit in the factory leather pouches. Comes with red key fob as well. Car runs, drives, shifts, stops and sounds great. No odd noises or issues. Everything works as it should, including the A/C system. Clutch doesn't slip. No dings or dents, maybe a few normal rock chips here and there. Tires have at last 75% tread left. Clean Carfax.

    I am a great seller, have bought and sold many cars over the past 20 years, happy to share my eBay rating. Car has a lien on it, so will take 7-10 business days after payment clears to provide the title.

    Asking $75k or best reasonable offer. Looking for a great buyer who will make this a nice and easy transaction.

    Thanks.

    Thank you. I forgot to mention that I rebuilt the alternator and installed a new ground strap from alternator to frame last year.

    Very nice presentation here. I am in the market for basically this exact car, and I'm only 20 miles from you. Were it not for the fact that I have my heart set on red/tan I would have bought this already.

    Raising to $90k which includes a fresh major service and 4 new Michelin Pilot Sport tires. I think Mike at Yellow Compass is right, great examples like this are very rare and the F355 stick shift will never be replicated.

    Awesome car, and nothing - but nothing - sounds like a 40 valve Ferrari V8. Best sounding mid-rear V8 ever. I should know. :)

    GLWS!
