    Selling my 1997 F355 spider currently 35,745 miles. I apologize for the lack of photos. Current circumstances allow little time to properly present Ferrari. Ferrari is at EuroAutoHaus having a complete major service. Tony Fernandes is among the best Ferrari techs I have dealt with. Photos of service in progress are at his shop in Milton, MA.
    Would prefer to keep the 355 but with my wife 2 cars, company car, new to me 360 and a '54 MGTF in need of restoration, no time or space!
    Prior to servicing my Ferraris Tony performed a PPI for a customer. Very good results. Some minor issues noted. Customer sent a 10% deposit but had to back away from purchase due to personal issues far more important. I returned his deposit.
    Based on Tony’s experience decided to have a complete major done prior to sale. Service will address many minor issues noted on earlier PPI. Should be complete shortly.
    Basic information regarding 355.
    Black exterior. Paint shows very well. Minor front paint chips. Carfax lists no accident damage. Interior black. Condition very good. Minimal bolster wear. Most sticky items addressed over my 8 years of ownership. Red brake calipers. Ferrari is completely stock.
    Heads rebuilt by Scuderia Rampante. New exhaust valves, 360 guides etc.
    Wheels are good with minor scuffs/dull areas upon close inspection. Tires very good.
    Convertible top works as designed with the exception of stretched elastic bands. Top has a small hole that does not leak. Planned to have repaired at a shop for appearance.
    No codes or issues. Passed emissions testing in MA. Strong performance. Clean Carfax. 4th owner. Title in hand.
    Have all books, tool kit, spider tool kit, records since new, Ferrari red cover, 2 leather convertible top covers(1 dusty foam), Sleeve for covers, bikini car cover for short term top down parking, Custom heavy car cover etc.
    Good solid driver. $65,000.00
    Can be seen at EuroAutoHaus, Milton, MA. Please contact myself or Tony to arrange.

    Thank you Randy. Of the 5 Ferraris I have had been fortunate enough to own over the years, I kept the 355 the longest!

    Looking for best offer. Need to move 355 before winter if possible. Major complete and currently detailed. Looks great!
    Tony has the Ferrari in Braintree, MA. I will be bringing the 355 home north of Boston next week if no sale prior.

    Update. F355 home north of Boston. Such a pretty Ferrari! Amazing how small it looks sitting next to my 360!
    Hoping to move before the snow starts! Storage hard to find north of Boston.
    Open to offers.

    Still available, thank you. The bands require driver to reach up and push center top bar back, easy and fast. Top then closes as designed, no issues.
    If car does not sell before snow I will replace over the winter. Business and travel have limited my time!
