1979 Ferrari 308GTS Chassis No. 30427 -December 1979 production, making it one of the latest and most collectible carbureted models-14,200 actual miles-Matching numbers-Wearing original colors-A two owner California car In the mid-1970s everyone was on the lookout for Ferraris replacement for the Dino. Ferrari engaged Pininfarina design legend, Leonardo Fioravanti, to breathe life into what is now one of Ferraris most iconic shapes. The gorgeous design was an instant hit at the 1975 Paris Motor Show and would survive in fundamental form to grace the legendary 288 GTO. Underneath, a sophisticated 3 liter 4 cam Weber-carbureted V-8 provided the power accompanied by an impressive soundtrack all the way to 7,700 rpm. Much as the DB5 Aston Martin became associated with James Bond, the 308 GTS gained fame in its own right starring with Tom Selleck in the Magnum PI television series. The 308 GTS was built for only three years with just 3,219 of the most desirable carbureted examples being produced before being replaced in 1980 with the 308 GTSi featuring fuel injection which sacrificed 26 horsepower and lost the fantastic burbling sound of the four Weber carburetors. Today, the V-8 Ferrari market continues to grow as enthusiasts and collectors recognize the open-topped carbureted 308 GTS as the most desirable and collectible of all Ferrari V8s.The matching numbers carbureted example offered here is finished in its original Ferrari color combination of white with black leather interior. As a GTS, it features a removable Targa top but also includes refinements such as air conditioning and power windows. This car is in top-performance specification with its original emissions equipment. The car is not currently running as it has been sitting and requires a major service including cam-belt replacement, after that this 308 GTS is ready to be enjoyed. This is a two owner California car that has a documented 14,080 original miles. In 1980 it was sold to the second owner who mildly flared the wings and added deep dish Ferrari wheels making it like the Group B racing series of the early 1980s. The leather is all original, and not damaged. There are hairline cracks in the modifications to the wheel arches. Enthusiasts and collectors recognize the excellence and beauty of the design of this car. A straightforward recommissioning will result in a pristine 14k original mile example. This is quite the opportunity for this Ferraris next lucky owner. Price: $46,500
