This lovely lefthand drive, European specification 308 hails from 1983 and was registered to its first keeper by Ferrari Rossenheim in Germany. The first service was carried out by Autohaus Wendelstein GmbH on August of the same year, prior to the car being exported to America. There are no details of the first Stateside owner, but the history file confirms a total of just 4,000 kilometers were logged between 1986 and 2012, and a cam belt change and major service carried out in September, 2002 by East Coast Auto Sales of New Jersey. The next keeper was the son of the second owner, verifying single family possession from 1986 - the certificate of title is dated March 21, when the car was registered in Massachusetts. The car's paper trail confirms an ongoing level of service and maintenance, including an inspection by Wayne Carini of the world renowned F40 Motorsports in November 2015.
Four days later, the car was purchased by the vendor and treated to a full bodywork restoration the following January by Brown's Custom Bodywork and Paint, while the leather was restored by AMI Services. It was shortly after that, that this exquisite prancing horse was exported to the UK since where it has received a full engine, belt and suspension service, as well as a five day machine polish and internal valet by the specialists at Spectrum Motor Centre (SMC) in Chester. The vendor now judges the Ferrari's bodywork, Rosso Corsa paintwork, Nero hide interior trim, 32-valve V8 engine and five-speed manual transmission as all being in `excellent' condition. This remarkable QV has still only travelled a mere 11,979 kilometers (7,487 miles) in its 36 year life, and is now offered complete with air conditioning, Cromodora wheels, book pack with service book, collection of invoices, pair of keys, toolkit and UK duty paid. Stunning!
