Description:

1981 Ferrari 308 GTSi 2-door Spider

This Ferrari breaks the mold of the popular red over tan or red over black color scheme.

If you're looking for a unique & original example of the highly popular & reliable GTSi, this 308 deserves your attention.

The folks at Maranello Motoworks in Denver, CO went completely through this auto after it had been stored for over 12 years.

Complete cooling system renewal with a freshly rebuilt radiator with all new hoses, clamps, & cooling fan switch.

Complete fuel system renewal with all new filters, hoses, & clamps.

Complete reseal of transmission/engine oil pans including selector shaft seals.

Complete major service including water pump, distributor caps/rotors, & sparkplug wires.

Complete brake system service with all 4 calipers removed & rebuilt including new seals.

Also, a new clutch kit was installed while at Maranello Motorworks (all above work was performed with 32,083 miles).

This Ferrari is fitted with a set of 16" QV wheels & tires with approximately 3,000 miles (original 390mm metric wheels/tires are included).

The front fender badges are magnetic in order to keep the original '81 look & not damage the fresh paint.

The original paint started showing its 35 year age, so I had the aluminum hood & steel panels all completely stripped (no paint or primer).

The naked body revealed absolutely NO body work or bondo anywhere on its shell.

The headlights, tail lights, marker lights, badges, emblems, louvers, doors, hood, engine deck lid were all removed for painting.

I did have the louvers painted trim black instead of being color keyed to the vehicle as original...most like the trim black better.

The result speaks for itself.

The spare wheel/tire are the 390mm original and was told theyhave never been mounted on the car.

At some point in the past 35 years the tool kit & jack kit was taken out of the vehicle.

The owners manual pack is pictured and even includes the manual for the CR-2001 Blaupunkt radio/cassette.

After driving& owninga 1979 Porsche 930, this vehicle (to me) offersa more gratifying driving experience & certainly commands a lot more attention!

I've personally put almost 1,000 miles on the clock and every time I ease in the driver's seat, it makes me smile.

Thank you for considering this Ferrari...selling to fund my doctoral studies.
