    Hello Fchat, this is my first post on the "for sale thread". I purchased the luggage a couple of years after I purchased my car. It was sold by the local dealership to a prolific Ferrari owner (new one every three years) who unfortunately passed away a couple of years ago. I purchased the set from his estate. It is the super rare Connelly leather in "buff" (light tan). It still has all the cardboard inserts, Schedoni bubble wrap, all dust covers (tan and yellow) all locks/keys and the clothes hanger. It just sits in my closet....smells great!! Do you people have any idea what it's worth? I will never use it...it should be in a museum. There is a slight stain on the lower corner of the large yellow dust cover (could put it in the washer). None of the infamous "flaking". I've seen all kinds of pricing for Schedoni but I've never seen the Connelly stuff for sale. Thanks.

    Since you are also posting in the 345/355 section I assume your set is for one of these models. 3 piece sets for a 348/355 were for the Spider variant as the rear shelf was not deep enough to support the toiletries and shoe case made as part of the five piece set for the tb/ts and GTB/GTS variants. The set included a medium and large suitcase a suit bag with hanger and locks, tags and the very desirable brown covers only. Yellow covers were introduced for luggage available for the 360 series and beyond.
    I purchased my black 3 piece set in perfect condition for a very low $850.00 from an Fchatter in 2014. Three piece tan sets in perfect condition could fetch up to $1,500.00 IMO.

    Post some photos.

    If there is an embossed F355 near the lock clasp then the set is for a F355. If there is no emboss than the set is only for a 348 even though it will fit both car models.

    Price depends on how long you want to wait to sell til a specific buyer comes around.

    Generally in the US, beige/ cuoio sets go for around 1500 for a three piece set. Black sets are more rare and generally cost more. Other colors like red, navy, or crema are super rare and would garner more money. The extra 2 piece bags behind the seat connect and sell for around 500 or so.

    You could likely sell the luggage for higher dollars in Europe. No one really uses the luggage on a practical side. It’s more for a buyer that wants a very complete car.

    Another consideration is if the bags have the correct light brown / tan dust covers. Brighter yellow dust covers were used after the F355 model and are not period correct and would fetch a lower asking price from educated buyers.

    Thanks Robb. I will have to take new photos as the ones I took for insurance purposes a couple of years ago are "too large" to email...? I'm a bit of a tit with posting photos etc but will make an effort tonight. I have both the yellow and brown dust covers and the luggage is stamped F355. It's still in the bubble wrap and has the cardboard inserts. I tried sending Alberto the photos last night when I discovered they were too big. You are correct about Euro pricing (according to Alberto). This stuff belongs in a museum.
