Vehicle Description

1985 Ferrari 308 GTS QV

VIN: ZFFUA13A2F0053561
Engine Number: 640
Paint Code: 300/6 - Rosso Corsa w/ "Boxer" Trim

This 1985 Ferrari 308 GTS QV was completed in September 1984 and was sold new on November 14 of that same year by Auto Torino Ltd. of Great Neck, NY. It remained with the original owner until 1990 when it was sold with just over 12,000 miles. Subsequent owners are documented via the extensive file that accompanies the car. The file details an excellent service history and It is worth noting that although the mileage on this thirty-five-year-old car is quite low, it has never had a long period where it wasn't serviced or driven. The most recent owner purchased the car in 2010 and entrusted service work to Professional Auto Tech Inc. in Carson, CA. They performed the most recent major service (November 2018) when the odometer read 33,901. The service included timing Belts, tensioner Bearings, alternator Belt, water pump belt, AC belt, recharged AC, air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, camshaft cover gasket set, camshaft seal set, 8 spark plugs, replaced engine oil dipstick, reseal engine and transmission covers, and replaced all four tires with Pirelli Cinturatos. Since the aforementioned service, the oil has been changed and a safety inspection was performed.

In addition to strong mechanicals, the cosmetics are quite good. The Rosso Corsa paintwork is in excellent condition and looks fantastic against the Boxer trim. The removable top fits very well and the exterior vinyl is in excellent condition. Inside, the black leather seats have been redone and show as new, while the original door panels and dash covering are in very good shape. The carpets show some wear but are serviceable and cheap to replace should that be your preference. The engine fires right up and makes good power and the gearbox is smooth once at temperature. As with any Ferrari, there is quite a bit of value in the ancillary items that accompanied the car when new. In the case of this car, we believe it is very complete. Under the hood (front) there is a washer bottle, spare tire, and battery cover. Inside the trunk are a tool kit, jack kit, and owner's manuals with an original warranty card and correct pouch. The final evolution of the 308 was the Quattrovalvole and 1985 was the final and most desirable year.
