1974 Ferrari 308 GT4A little history -There is a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts for Ferraris built while Enzo was still in charge. – they didn’t call himil Commendatorefor nothing. He died in 1988 so there are many Ferraris that fall under this Enzo-era category. Enzo was a mercurial person. He once declared that only V-12 Ferraris can wear theCavallino Rampante– Prancing Horse badge. So early V-6 and V-8 powered cars were referred to as Dinos. But sometime around 1976, errari had no cars suitable for the US market except the Dino. He was forced into allowing it to be properly badged Ferrari. Other Ferraris built at the same time include the celebrated 365GT Berlinetta Boxer and the very first 308GTB.
The Ferrari 308 GT4 we have here as our Preferred offering, epresents an example of the first mid-engine, -8, +2 Ferrari.Furthermore, t was designed by Bertone – another Ferrari first. You see, ertone had packaging experience building 2+2, id-engine sports cars. They had some success with the Lamborghini Uracco so Ferrari gave them the project. And they did quite a credible job. In today’s automotive landscape, he 308 GT4 represents an example of the wedge-shaped design influences of the 1970s. Like many designs, hey are in favor and then they are not. Today, t stands out in a crowd.
The 308 GT4 fell out of favor for a while and during that banishment many examples were turned into track cars or suffered from deferred maintenance.But they are experiencing resurgence as people have come to recognize the level of performance, reat ride and handling at a good price point.Today’s 308GT4– Our 308GT4 has traveled just 60,000 miles since new and has a rebuilt engine (5 years ago) with very few miles on it (250 Miles we are told!).
This is a running, riving Ferrari, owever, ecause of the time, belt service is recommended to bring maintenance up to date. There is a folder filled with service records including the information regarding the engine rebuild. The motor type and number are: F106A #00719. We wish all owners kept such good records. It has some cosmetic needs with a rough lower passenger side door panel and small bubbles here and there. But from 10 feet, t is very presentable.
The interior has some needs but nothing that can’t be freshened by a competent specialist. The magnesium alloy wheels will need to be checked and refinished before any serious roadwork is attempted.
With 308GTBs routinely eclipsing $100,000, he 308GT/4 remains a solid opportunity to acquire a genuine Ferrari at a reasonable price.
*Note that our Ferrari was manufactured in November, 974 and is titled as a 1974.A video of our car running can be seen on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Ge3ZV8lG4fo
