    It is time to put for sale my BELOVED 360. it has been years and years of SMILES.
    Driving through canyons listening to the F1 high pitch sound of the Tubi along with the Fabspeed headers and the Hyperflow cats while changing gears is absolutely intoxicating and I truly believe this is the perfect setup for this car.
    This was my first Ferrari (after performing PPIs on other 4 that did not go through because I was looking for the RIGHT ONE)
    Eventually I purchased this car HERE from another Fchat member and last year I purchased another Ferrari (a Testarossa) from another Fchat member. So I REALLY value this forum full with enthusiasts.
    I want this car to go to a new home that will treat her right and will keep her running great for years to come.

    This ad might be long to read but I would like to post everything about the car but please feel free to ask anything,

    Exotic cars don’t get valued the same way as regular cars. In regular car the mileage is more important, in an exotic car mileage is important but not as important as condition. Most auction companies will classify a car from 1-4 (concours, excellent, good, fair)
    I don’t know the car you posted but dealers know their profession and if they are asking less there is a reason.
    As I mentioned in my first post I had to go through several PPIs until I found the right car, most cars are misrepresented or they just look nice in pictures, once you see them in person Is another story.
    You want a car that has been driven and that all the known issues have been taken care of, 360s are not going up in value at least not in the short term, so you will buy a car to drive it and to enjoy it. And what’s worse than buy a dream car and ended up being a time bomb.
    I know all the history of this car, all owners, and the original owner is a good friend of mine. Funny story I met him because of my car, his name showed on the service book and it was sold in San Diego, I went to a Ferrari event and asked for him and we became friends.
    My car was signed by Pininfarina (fuel door) just a bit before his death. but a previous owner (I know which one) replaced the fuel door to keep the signature.
    At the end is how well you treat and respect the car, for me is a piece of art and it should go to a good home, not a car dealer flip to make a quick profit.

    Answering your question, color is a personal choice, most first Ferrari owners choose red as their first, most people that I meet tell me “a Ferrari must be red” and well I have two red ones ;)

    I am very meticulous with my cars,when I purchased my car it didn’t come with the car cover,It took me a while to find the “spider” version because although the “coupe” version fits, the fit is not perfect in the back and I wanted it to be perfect.
    (I also have the seats and steering wheel covers by the way)

    Also a light bulb and a screwdriver was missing from the tool box, I knew I was not going to use either (light bulbs have been upgraded to LED and I will rather a generic screwdriver than my Ferrari branded ones) but still got them so the car was COMPLETE. Very OCD ;)

    Ahh and I have the original flashlight too
    That one was missing as well and they are asking A LOT for them now.

    This post was a reply to another post that moderators deleted, the other person was asking me if a color or mileage is a huge factor with Ferraris because he was in the market for one and he posted a link for a car for sale for less (which is against the rules)

    My reply as it is doesn’t make sense and I wanted to explain.

    Adding to my ad, I believe 360 has one of the most beautiful exhaust sound Ferrari has made but stock exhaust is too muffled.
    This car sounds very similar to a challenge stradale with this setup, and being convertible increases the experience.
    I did change the setup little by little and I wish I had change the whole thing at once because the experience is WAY improved. Also there is NO CEL light at all (a common problem with exhaust modifications that some owners decide to just ignore)
    Next owner will really appreciate this mods and he can always go back to stock (why would you but personal preference is subjective) as OEM headers and catalytic converters are also included.
    All reasonable offers will be considered

    Excellent example. Silly question perhaps, do you have the signed fuel door or did it go with the original owner ?

    Sadly no, the original owner traded the car back to get a Stradale with the signed fuel door (and he covered it with clear bra in order to preserve it) and the car was put for sale again, the fuel door got “lost” afterwards (not really I am pretty positive that I know who has it but he denied it when I asked for it)
    It is a cool story though

    As I said before all reasonable offers will be considered. I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as a cheap Ferrari and sometimes the best examples might look a bit more expensive on paper but in the long term those dollars paid upfront will be less.
    I have seen it so many times.
    I hope my car goes to a good home.

    Three videos to appreciate the mirror finish after the Opticoat Pro ceramic coat and the paint correction.

    There has been a bit of interest and questions about a PPI, car is open to a PPI and I can bring the car over to any shop the prospective buyers wants me to. I thought about performing a PPI myself and include it in the price. A PPI at the dealer will be at least 1k (4 years ago I paid $900) but performing the PPI myself might look odd so I’d rather give the prospective buyer the option to choose to do it and where to do it.
    I am reducing the price to make a thorough PPI coming out of my pocket and a bit more in order to make the car more “interesting”
    New price $74,000
    Thanks

    ferralc bought my TR and like me he is very meticulous ! If I was in the market for a 360
    it would be on top of my list. He is borderline OCD with his cars;) in a good way!

    Why posts of people saying good things about me have been deleted??
    They have said things like “I know ferralc I would buy a car from him at anytime, he is a very meticulous owner” that is allowed under classified rules
    My ad looks weird if all comments about me from other members that know how meticulous and trustful I am keep getting deleted. They are being kind to express their experiences of dealing with me and still those comments are getting deleted.
    “Anyone posting on an ad must be 1) asking a legitimate and relevant question; or 2) providing accurate, first-hand information on that specific CAR, item, or SELLER”

    Hello the car has been sold to a fellow ferrarichat member, I didn’t post anywhere else because that is a great way to avoid tirekickers and middle men offering their “services”
    I have purchased my two Ferraris here and I have sold one here too.
    I am happy to be part of an enthusiasts community.
    Enjoy your new car in good health Tim
    Moderators please update the ad to show that car is sold.
