    I've heard the F1 in the 355 shifts slow and is jerky, is this correct?

    One needs to keep things in perspective. At the time, the F1 was the revolutionary. It was the edge of technology. So, of course, by today’s standards it’s dated. But, that’s the case for all classic cars. The same would be the case for a 275, a Dino, etc. These are the types of things that add joy to owning a vintage or classic car.

    Word is, over priced for condition, missing items, some stickies and tires. I will go by next week and see. 5 minutes from my office.

    Has some needs for sure, but an $80K ask isn't a terrible jumping off point from a dealer, IMO. I'd take a hard look at the service history as it still has the old PS reservoir and the fuel block recall hasn't been done, I'd think a dealer would have addressed those things, so who did the maintenance? Ad says Grigio, but it looks like Canna to me, which personally I like a lot...

    If I was in the market, a 1995 B in that spec with 30K miles and that initial asking price would be worth some further investigation before writing it off.

    It's an early 95 with dual fuel pumps. The fuel block recall doesn't apply. PS res, a $15 fix if you must. Mime is still original. No problem if installed correctly and the cap is not over tightened.

    Wasn't aware that early 95 had dual fuel pumps that negated the need for the recall...learned something today, thanks.

    Actually the dual fuel pump cars did have a recall #157, for fuel lines. Something about a nut cracking if tightened to much.

    I love that color and it just pops with that interior.
    Of course it needs a few of the stickies addressed, but I think that's a great price

    The slowness of the 355 F1 is in comparison to the 360/430/458 models especially the track focus editions. The system can still be quicker than manually shifting.

    The jerkiness comes from the style of driving. Each car is slightly different in how it likes to shift in regards to other aspects (like foot on/off the throttle).

    As with any car, the style of driving must be adapted to the vehicle.

    Pull the paddle at redline and tell it it feels slow. It practically breaks your neck !
    Smooth as silk on downshifts so long as you manually blip the throttle to rev match. Just like a stick. This is the secret that few seem to understand.

    Any links? If I had my way I’d complement tomorrow the FF with a 355 and 512tr. That 355 is stunning...I love my FF but it’s just too fast; the 90’s got it figured. No need for more power it’s useless

    Low inventory means values of these cars are close to rock bottom for what owners of these cars are willing to sell them for. Inventory, value and demand has its relations. I think the values are at its lowest for B/GTS-GATED examples. Once inventory is up, its because values are up. It would be too late to for some folks to hop on.

    You can stick every owner of a 355 and 348 in desks in my building at work. Inventory is always low. Actually inventory looks a bit up? 19 on ebay alone GTx and Spiders.

    One can't tell which way the wind is going to blow next month... but Yellow Compass Mike just said he is selling clean gated F355 Berlinettas in the $110-$120K range. He thinks the Berlinetta and GTS will be the next Dino! ;)
    All that being said, clean Ferrari sticks are developing an ever increasing scarcity value.
    Of course we own them for what they are, not what they will be, but its nice when that happens.

    Agreed, Rob. I could have easily found you a dentist who would have paid more for your Berlinetta...:rolleyes:
