American wheels: 1980 Ferrari 308 GTBi


This 308 GTBi is actually painted in a very rare color: few only of these cars were originally painted in white, we don’t know exactly how many but we would’t be surprised if they were less than ten.


Other than beng painted in this unusual color, this car is said to be a barn find: the seller says that the previous owner imported the car from the U.S. in 1991 then he abandoned it years ago because he could no longer drive the car due to medical reasons. Indeed the unpowered steering was too heavy for him.


Many ares of the car are still covered with dust, moreover the car is still equipped with a set of aftermarket wheels fitted by an old set of Michelin TRX tires which, of course, must be changed after so many years. The car has been recently serviced by a specialist (brakes, timing belts, ignition, new clutch, spark plugs etc.) and it’s almost ready to go. Fid it for sale at €55,000 (today $67,000) here in Antwerp, Belgium.
