1982 Ferrari Mondial
Regretfully selling my1982 Ferrari Mondial 8 coupe.One of just 147 US-spec Mondial 8's and in excellent condition. Prior to my ownership, the car spent 6 years on display in a car museum. It appears to have been restored shortly before that time. I had the car looked over by a seasoned Ferrari mechanic and he was impressed with how well it has been preserved (especially since so many Mondial 8's have rotten away or have been used for parts). The car had a belt service and fluids changed in April of this year. It also received a new battery. The car runs and drives great, and the transmission shifts very smoothly. The original Cromodora wheels (including spare) are in excellent condition, and the TRX tires look nearly new.
The paint appears to be a 2-stage respray of the original color. The paint and body have some very small imperfections that can be seen upon close inspection. There are a couple non-stock details like window tint and black painted wheel centers that could be undone if it doesn't suit the next owner. At some point an antenna was installed on the trunk lid and the base plate is still there.
Nearly all of the electrics work, including all of the hood/trunk/engine/fuel solenoid releases. The driver's side window is very slow to close. There is a newer CD player that appears to be functional. The pop-up headlights work great, as do the electric side mirrors, horn, wipers, and hazards/signals. The car can drain the battery if anything is left on, so there is a battery cut-off switch installed. The HVAC blows air, but the AC is not cold. It does appear to have been serviced in the recent past, and possibly converted to 134.
The engine bay looks immaculate, and the underbody looks clean (see photos from recent service). The interior is very clean, and it looks like the black leather was redyed during the restoration. The leather does have some stress cracks, but looks very presentable. The steering wheel has been upgraded to a Nardi wooden wheel and it is in perfect condition. The car spent most of its life on the west coast and I don't see any evidence of rust.
Included with the car is a tool kit in original bag, a full size spare, original owners manual and warranty booklet, service and parts manuals, and a few spare parts in the trunk.
The car's original owner lived in Las Vegas, then I believe at some point the car moved to California. The warranty booklet shows a number of entries from Ferrari mechanics in California (1989, 1993, and 2000).
The car has a clean history, and a clean title in hand. I am happy to allow pre-purchase inspections.
