Just saw a weird blue 512BBi on carsales.com.au
What is its story?
Twin turbos, sat in a shed for 30 years, just needs a wash and a jump start
Sounds like a few on here.
you're forgetting fuel again
ABS? Australian delivered? Ok
Is that all correct? I’m no expert on these cars but comparatively it seems very well priced .
Interesting, there's only one ABS equipped 328 GTS that was "Australian" delivered. It was destined for Hong Kong, but for some reason the thing wasn't taken off the ship when in port and ended up here. It carries a UK VIN, but has an Australian compliance plate. I have the number somewhere, I'll dig it out in 2034.
If this isn't it it doesn't matter.
Cool story, it would be interesting to see if it were that very car .
I do basic maintenance to three of these 1989 328s. Of the three, only RW is aware his car is not ABS equipped. The other two specifically asked me to "Check the ABS" when I changed the brake fluid. They were astounded when I told them their car didn't have it. One even was even told by the salesman when he bought it it had ABS.
It's really easy to identify a 328 with ABS. ABS check light on the dash which extinguishes on start up, hall effect sensors on the wheels, ABS relay in the fusebox and the ABS pump under the front hood like a 355.
I think the above is a common misconception with the 1989 models, the convex wheels lead people to believe it's an ABS car.
Fair enough. I get that.
I heard there was ONE ABS car got sent to Australia by mistake ....... fake news ?
I heard some peanut imported a GTB. Probably fake news too.
No, I had a ride in that very car, with the peanut.
How many are there in Oz?
(GTBs, not peanuts)
Which car and which peanut? Phil's mate Simon?
I don't know. I had 5 here at one stage some 10 years back, not sure now.
I imported 1989 328GTB #79332 into Australia in 2012, I’ve had the car from new and I guess the only abs equipped GTB in the country, so that makes one....for starters!
My gtb had abs.
Did you forget?
