1978 Ferrari 308 GTS

WOW! Have a look at this iconic Ferrari 308 GTS!

Description

Only 16,827 miles Huge service performed January 2016 Beautifully straight and tight panels Last of the carburetor models Great Ferrari sound!

A look at this iconic Ferrari and you might think of Magnum P.I., the smash hit TV show from the 1980's. That's because during the first season, a 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS was used just like this beauty! This car however has one feature that makes it a very rare find. Read on!


From 1975-1980, there were only 3,219 GTS models produced. The GTS used a wet sump, 4 carburetor, naturally aspirated V8 engine—one of the last to use carburetors. With a compression ratio of 8.8:1 and 195 ft-lb of torque, this red rocket reached 150+ miles per hour easily. Zero to 100 mph in 15 seconds. In addition, this car had extensive maintenance performed in January 2016 (please see list below).


The exterior of this car shows very straight and tight fitting steel body panels. The doors close with a solid sound and fit. All the glass and mirrors are in very good condition and the headlights swing open as if brand new. Even the valance looks well taken care of.


The interior of this icon is a beautiful surviving gem. The vintage red leather seats feel very supple and are accented with black leather striping, making this a very rare color interior. Most of the 308's you see are beige or black. The same red leather is continued on the door panels while matching red carpet rests on the floor. The leather wrapped steering wheel shows very little use. All the knobs, levers and switches work, are in place, and look fantastic!
This car would make Tom Selleck smile! It does for us and we're sure it will for you too! Plus, with only 16,827 believed miles, it isn't even broken in yet!

At the Motor Car Group, we're enthusiasts first. We want you to enjoy your new car from the minute it's delivered and the trailer door drops. Before a car leaves our shop, it's gone through comprehensively, both visually and mechanically. We do more than just kick the tires, though: We fill your tires with nitrogen, road test (if the weather permits us here in Cleveland!) and clean it inside and out. We buff the paint using a three-step process immediately before it's taken away so that it gleams when it arrives. Every car we sell, from Sunday drivers through the rarest exotics, is meant to be driven--get out there!

Price

While current or recent model year cars are simple to price, the collector car market fluctuates so much that simply keeping up is a full-time job. We research similar cars and determine the price of ours based on sales records and relative conditions of those vehicles. We offer superior examples that hold their value better or will appreciate more than others you will find: Whether you're buying a car you'll keep forever or as a short term hold, a car from us is simply a better value.
