    I have my 1982 308 GTSi for sale. Has been garaged and totally babied and taken care of. I’ve owned it for 11 years. Ready to sell.

    Rebuilt engine approximately 9500 miles on it. I have full binder ( 2 1/2 inches thick) of before after pictures and everything that’s been done. Red on black. Exact Magnum PI car

    I love this car. As we all are passionate about our babies

    How much should I ask? 72 to 96 Is NADA book value.

    You would need to find a suitable dye for the leather on the steering wheel. The spokes are anodized. So either the spokes get sanded and anodized. Or you sand it to remove rust and use a flat clear to protect it. But not sure how long that would last

    Thank you for making this a sticky and easy to find!

    I am starting my search for a 308 GTS. I originally started my search for a 355 but I also like the idea that my first Ferrari could be the model that help start the mid-engined V8 line for Ferrari!

    Agreed - I thought about this as I was writing it. A lot of people write that they are so similar mechanically and they both are still 308 models so I figured I wouldn’t get too technical - but yes you are correct.

    If you aren’t looking for a specific engine number for a specific chassis then eBay or the exotic dismantling companies, eurospares etc

    Engine and gearbox numbers don’t match to each other or the chassis number
