“Very nice low mileage and highly desirable early European fibreglass example. Original paint and interior. No evidence of crash damage. Extensive mechanical freshening including recent high performance engine rebuild by 308 expert Paul Newman.”
Here is your opportunity to own my very nice Ferrari 308 GTB Vetroresina euro-spec dry-sump. Imported to Canada by me in 2009 from respected Ferrari specialist Roger Imboden, Touring Garage Imboden, Eyholz, Switzerland, as a low mileage all-original example. Since that time all inner and outer suspension bushings, ball joints, outer tie rod ends, and wheel bearings have been replaced. All coolant hoses, fuel hoses, brake hoses, and plug wires have been replaced. The brake calipers have been restored by pmbperformance.com. In 2018/2019 at 38410 km, the engine was completely rebuilt to 3.4L specification by 308 & boxer expert Paul Newman https://vimeo.com/[hidden information] . Thread describing the work is available here https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/3-4l-drysump-build.[hidden information]/ . This included new stainless exhaust and intake valves, valve springs, custom camshafts, 360 crank, rod bolts, and new custom pistons. The plastic rimmed timing pulleys were replaced with new original Ferrari all metal versions, new tensioner bearings and a new clutch were installed. The gearbox worked well including second gear so was re-sealed only. Single distributor (with pertronix ignition) was checked for correct advance curve. New clutch and accelerator cables were installed. Carburetors were thoroughly cleaned and rebuilt, idle jets increased one size from stock based on tuning / road testing after engine rebuild. A new free-flowing single outlet exhaust by Quicksilver was fitted, the original 14” wheels were refinished and new XWX tires mounted. The car has since covered only 800 km. Current mileage 39137 km. The engine performs beautifully, makes great power, revs freely with no hesitation, popping, or backfiring and runs cool in all traffic. The original crankshaft and camshafts are included with the car. A new aftermarket steering rack is currently installed as I had intended to convert the original to a quick ratio rack but did not get around to it yet. The original is included with the car. The paint appears to be the original lacquer and is not perfect with chips, some crazing, and is thin from polishing on some edges. I have tried to show this in the photos. I have always felt it was too nice to re-spray and because it isn’t too perfect you won’t worry as much about driving it. The glass and lenses are all very nice. The interior is all-original and very nice with lovely patina on the leather. There are some areas of the headliner that are unglued which you probably know is not uncommon. The visor snaps are both intact. Everything works including the electric windows, gauges, clock (currently un-plugged), headlight lifters, and cold AC (R12). Manual with wallet, tools, trouble light, spare tire, and key ring are all included as shown in the photos. Sold as is, where is, no return or warranty. Buyer responsible for shipping. Payment by wire transfer. If you want to inspect it, do so before auction close. Full payment by wire transfer within 3 days.
