    I am looking at a 1979 308GTB. The car has 55,000mi and the motor was rebuilt and modified by Nick Forza 5,000mi ago. It was repainted different then when it left the factory and the seats were replaced with Corvette buckets. What is this car worth?

    It's hard to say, There's too many (for my tastes) modifications on it to really give it a fair appraisal. I would enquire if he still has the original seats, wheels, front clip and bumper. Are the modifications to the engine such, that a knowledgeable Ferrari mechanic would be able to understand what's been done? Do you want to keep it for a long time or flip it once the thrill is gone? Think of resale.

    It depends what you're looking for and what you expect....and what YOU'RE willing to pay for it.

    As some on this board know, I'm a bit of a purist, and I tend to go for a car that's in good but stock condition.

    ...just my 0.02$

    Well if it was in stock form, what would a car of this year/milage go for? Then, how badly does the non original paint/color affect it. Than is the engine an posative or negative? Nick Forza seems to be reputable, no? The seats look rather good IMO.

    A stock 308GTB (according to Cavallino) should sell for anywhere between 22K to 35K, of course dending on the obvious things: overall condition, color, service records...

    IMO, the mods don't add to the price.

    The Vette seats, although nice, belong in a Vette.

    I couldn't tell you about Nick Forza's work, since I've never dealt with him. But if you search the archives, there should be some feedback regarding his rep.

    Buona Fortuna

    I'd say $24k.

    If he has the original parts as well it is well worth considering. Nicks performance rebuilds have a good reputation. Colour change wouldn't bother me if done well. If done badly forget it.
