For Sale: 1979 Ferrari 308 in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

1979 Ferrari 308 GTS for sale with 42,445 actual miles. This car is in excellent condition inside and out and is ready for a new owner. The 308 GTS is a mid engine V8 two seater sports car that replaced the famed Dino 246 GT and GTS. The 380 was made from 1975 to 1985 when it was replaced by the 328 GTB / GTS. The 308 had a tube frame with separate body. The 308 GTB/GTS and GT4 were mechanically similar, and also shared much with the original Dino. Both 308s sit on the same tube platform, however the GT4—being a 2+2—has a longer wheelbase. The engine was a V8 of a 90 degree configuration, with belt-driven twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. It was transversely mounted in unit with the transaxle transmission assembly, which was below and to the rear of the engine's sump. All models used a fully synchromesh 5-speed manual and a clutch-type limited slip differential. Suspension was all-independent, comprising double wishbones, coaxial coil springs and hydraulic dampers, and anti-roll bars on both axles; four wheel vented disc brakes were also fitted. Steering was handle by a rack and pinion assembly. The 308's body was designed by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti, who had been responsible for some of Ferrari's most celebrated shapes to date such as the Daytona, the Dino and the Berlinetta Boxer. The 308 used elements of these shapes to create something very much in contrast with the angular GT4. GTS models featured a removable targa roof panel with grained satin black finish, which could be stowed in a vinyl cover behind the seats when not in use. Options on this 308 include A/C, AM/FM radio, targa top, power windows, seat belts, leather interior, radial tires, aluminum alloy wheels and the numbers matching engine and transmission.
