1990 Ferrari 348 TS

A great opportunity to have a great driving car! Awesome sound, manual steering, gated shifter... It doesn't get any better than this! Contact me for more photos and a driving video.
It just had a major service and valve/head refresh (Approx $22k) at the local Ferrari dealer in fall of 2019. It's fresh and ready to go. Paint correction performed by a local detail shop. The current owner upgraded to the stereo to allow iPhone/Android connectivity. In addition there was additional clear film installed to protect the pain near the targa top attachment sites.

The previous owner had the vehicle sent to Bradan Group of West Babylon, New York in 2014 for refurbishment that included a partial repaint, suspension and interior work, and an engine-out service for new belts, bearings, and more. The car is finished in black over tan and powered by a 3.4-liter V8 paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle. Modifications include a 348 Challenge rear grille and lights, F355 Challenge wheels and seats, and an Alpine stereo. The car comes with a tool kit, factory manuals, two indoor car covers, spares, and a clear Illinois title.

Staggered black 18″ F355 Challenge wheels were installed with titanium bolts in 2018 and wear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires sized 235/40 in the front and 285/35 at the rear. The factory wheels are included in the sale.The car is equipped with slotted brake rotors and stainless steel lines.

The tan leather interior features Ferrari F355 seats with a Daytona conversion performed by Bradan Group. Photos of the interior refurbishment are available upon request. European-style 3-point belts replace the originals. (originals were motorized) New floor mats and inner window scraper seals have been installed.

The odometer shows 59980 miles, approximately 2k of which were added by the recent owner. The center console was recovered during the refurbishment, and an R134a air conditioning conversion was performed in 2014 along with installation of a new compressor, condenser, and lines. The car is equipped with a gated shifter and an aftermarket bluetooth Alpine head unit with small amplifier and aftermarket speakers.

The longitudinally-mounted 3.4-literTipoF119V8 is paired with a 1994-spec 5-speed manual transaxle. The seller reports that a previous owner rebuilt the cylinder heads and installed new Kevlar coolant hoses. A 2014 engine-out service included:

Bushings were updated with polyurethane replacements, the steering rack was rebuilt, the shocks inspected and cleaned, and the CV axles fitted with new boots. Additional photos upon request show the car in several states of refurbishment.
