1979 Ferrari 308GT4
- Owned by same family for 33 years
- 77,000 miles from new
- Excellent original condition
This little jewel of a car is an entry-level classic Ferrari and a model which, like all Ferraris, is rapidly rising in value.
Virtually one owner from new this is a particularly fine example was treasured by its late owner from the day he purchased it as a two year old car in 1981. It has a large history file with MOTs to confirm the low milage of just 77,000 miles. It also has all the bills for work, which included a full engine rebuild in 2004 (less than 10,000 miles ago) and a repaint in 1998. The current condition is excellent, with no body corrosion, and clean and dry engine and mechanicals.
The Rosso red paintwork still looks fresh after nearly two decades, and the black leather interior is unmarked.
It has been laid up on axle stands since the owner's death in 2011, and will therefore the car will be recommissioned, with new timing belts, oil change, grease and check over. Fuel drained and refilled. This is a rare opportunity to buy a beautifully preserved example of a 308 GT with good history and virtually one owner from new.
