Description

Following in the footsteps of the Dino 246 and Dino 308 GT4, the Ferrari 308 built upon that success, combining the beautiful, curvaceous lines of the Dino with the V8 power of the GT4 to produce what would become their most successful model to date. An influx of cash from Fiat helped Ferrari update their factory to handle the demand of the new car. In production from 1975 through 1985, Ferrari sold 12,000 examples and created one of the most recognizable motoring icons in history.
RB Collection is pleased to offer this “barn-find” 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS, an original 33,668 mile example finished in Nero over a tan interior, and freshly out of long-term storage. Originally delivered in California, this is a sound, serviceable and drivable example that will require some recommissioning to fully enjoy on the road but remains in good overall condition. The Pininfarina-designed steel body is in good order showing no signs of significant corrosion, though a few minor dents and dings are apparent, with the worst area found on the left front fender. The original black paint is otherwise in good condition, showing little fading or road rash, and could possibly be revived with careful polishing. The car appears never to have suffered any major accidents and the panel fit is very good all around, with bumpers, trim and glass remaining in good order. The original removable targa top remains in excellent condition, with good exterior covering and a tidy headlining. The car retains its original wheels wrapped in period correct Pirelli P500 rubber.
Opening the door with those signature tiny door handles reveals a good original interior. The tan leather has dried out somewhat, and shows some significant fading but is otherwise sound and free of rips or tears, showing the car was kept indoors and has seen limited sun exposure. Likewise, the leather covered dash and console are in good condition, with the only deviation from standard being the addition of an Alpine cassette player and equalizer. The car retains its factory air conditioning and the typically fragile controls for the HVAC system are in excellent condition, backing up the low original miles.
The carbureted 3.0 liter V8 runs well and the 5-speed transaxle shifts very well once up to temperature. Brakes are sound the car drives and handles well, though we highly recommend performing a major service and tune prior to using the car regularly. The suspension feels generally sound though it is likely in need of some freshening after a long period of disuse.
This 308 represents an excellent value in the current climate. While it is in need of a new owner to lavish some care upon it, it is a very sound foundation for a mechanical refreshing, rolling restoration or even a full cosmetic restoration. With minimal effort it can be enjoyed as the fine driver’s car it is. The sale includes the original books and manuals, as well as a rare and desirably complete tool kit in the original roll as well as jack, handle and jack bag.
