    A little high given the mileage. If it had the valve guides done (maybe it does and I missed it) along with an exhaust and cats it would be a bit closer.

    Looks clean. Drivers condition price. Maybe 5-10k more than it’s value. If you really like that color combo? $69k is good. Definitely not a ridiculous asking.

    Car sold on BAT in 2017 for $50k with similar mileage. Left front accident damage stated on BAT (fender). ANSA headers are the original Ferrari headers so if replaced with OEM the header issue is still there. Here is a link to the BAT sale. 10 previous owners at the time. Also included Challenge wheels and exhaust at the time (no longer with the car).

    A decent deal for this car is $55K.

    If i were looking, I would not pay more than $58 and I think that is the magic #

    I can make you a lot better deal on a Red spider with less miles! Not sure what is going on with the carbon fiber interior (cup holder rigged into the ashtray).

    Wheels are a turnoff. They seem to be refinished in a darker gunmetal gray than the OEM grigio.

    Yeah... with that kind of history I retract what I said. Personally would like to get it for much less. I also agree with the wheels, it needs to get repainted. Non original interior pieces. But hey, if it suites your fancy, wheels, interior and all and love it the way it is. Car looks good to you? Will you enjoy it? Even with its history. It’s a good deal. If your already thinking about changing things about this car, spending more money to get it to your liking. Just wait. Around this price point you should find quite a few popping up in the near future.

    If the valve guides are not worn out why replace them? Not all of them wear out

    I'm sure the dealership needs to turn a profit, yet the car will likely need $10k+ of work (engine service, front bumper repaired, interior parts restored, etc).

    Mid 50s seems fine for a driver condition 355 with a stick shift.

    I wonder, for how long, will driver quality cars will stay $50-70k for Gated GTB. I hope it stays here for another year or 2 so I can pick up another one.

    Personally I don't see the market for them getting any stronger. Values across the board have been on the decline except for perfect, low mile examples that end up sitting on display in a collection somewhere.

    That is absolutely correct. It feels as if the market looked for the next 993, stopped at the 348/355 in the window, shrugged then moved on. That leaves people like me who always wanted one. And most of those would opt for newer ones like 430's if they keep going down which they will. Neither of my boys want my car at 19 and 20 years old. They want Teslas. None of that changes the awesomeness of the car. Buy one for your self not for others or as an "investment" and it is what it is, enjoy them!

    That’s funny, my 7 year old asked me to never sell the 355. He said he likes the changing gears part. Finds my rolls boring.

    The carbon fiber in the interior looks cheap and ricer.

    Definitely over done. Easily changed though.

    If it can (and it should) be had for $55K, it is worth it just to have.

    I don't recall, what was it before? Doesn't really matter, just curious.
