Victoria, BC V8T1E5
1983 Ferrari 308 308 GTSi Quattrovavole
Formerly a US version that was imported into Canada from previous information by the second owner in 1992 to British Columbia with at that time 53000 miles. In 1999 it left B.C. and went to Calgary Alberta sold to the third owner. In 2003 the car returned to B.C. showing 64400 miles. There is evidence of a routine maintenance in 2004 by the owner around 65000 miles. Around 2009 another owner appeared and when he bought the car had a pre-purchase evaluation done by our service department. At that time a belt service, oil and fluid service, as well as the full routine service be completed which was negotiated into the purchase at that time and we performed that work at 67000 miles approx. This owner also had another belt service in 2012 by our shop (Forward Automotive) at 68500 miles. Later, that year he became sick and opted to put his small collection of cars up for sale and the Ferrari once again acquired a new owner with 68795 miles in early 2013.Another “collector” enjoys the car as an event entrant and concurs goer. Come 2016 the present owner returns to us for a complete ignition overhaul (new caps, rotors, plug wires and extensions, and a new set of plugs), Belt service, oil service, align and service power windows and motors, valve cover gaskets and new battery at 69450 miles. Current mileage is displayed in the photo gallery provided.
The car runs and drives well when cold or warm with no issues. It will pull hard to near redline in all gears and shifts smoothly both up and down (of course when gearbox oil has warmed up). There’s nothing to do on this car other than drive it! The interior has remained in good condition (refer to photo gallery) with no rips, tears, or worn surfaces. Dashboard is immaculate with no cracks or curling of edges around windshield. Car comes with a factory tool roll(shown), jack,2 keys, original spare wheel and tire. There isn’t a factory manual but it comes with an internet down loaded one in a binder. Car is complete and everything is in working order. Tires are only 3000 miles old (correct Michelin version). Targa roof is in good condition as are all rubber gaskets, moldings and seals. There is no evidence of any moisture being present at any time anywhere in the car previously. All paint surfaces appear to be original(elcometer)and the only chips that one can see are very small on the left front lower quarter panel and one on the engine cover. Car Fax provided is clean and aren’t aware of any previous issues with any servicing. This car is not a “Trailer Queen” but it’s a worthy addition to anyone’s collection. These cars are still appreciating as are most models that are getting older and is one of the easier ones to maintain. This is truly a “turnkey” investment! Price: $69,995
