CONDITION AND HISTORY
Won by its current owner in a 2003 raffle, this ’82 308 GTSi has benefitted from very limited use over the last fifteen years, culminating in a recent comprehensive mechanical and aesthetic freshening. According to the intact window sticker, the car was delivered to Wide World of Cars in Spring Valley, NY, during March 1982. From there, it was enjoyed by a Mr. Mintz through the mid-80s, who put around 15,000 miles on it in those first few years.
Resplendent in its correct Rosso Corsa, the car underwent a well-documented regimen of body and paint repair earlier this year. The result is a deep, glossy shine, complemented by excellent trim, glass, and bumpers. Overall there are very few flaws present, though the car’s signature five-spoke wheels show minor signs of wear in their finish.
Inside, the cabin is largely original, displaying a warm patina on its black leather trim. The seats were redone in 2005 with distinctive red piping, while the original carpets enjoyed minor edging repairs. The removable targa roof panel also received some attention from the trimmer via a new headliner. A close match to the original Ferrari material, it remains tight and fresh. Up front, the deep, padded dash is in great shape, featuring lovely Veglia instruments. Below, the center console houses Ferrari’s famous gated five-speed, along with an array of switchgear for the windows and HVAC system, both of which are functioning. The console’s trim, along with the steering wheel rim’s upholstery, shows some fading and wear.
The 2.9L V8 is in excellent health and starts readily, with perfectly-tuned fuel injection and a great exhaust note. Complemented by solid, refurbished brakes and the unmistakable click of its gated five-speed, the car is both easy and satisfying to drive at speed. With such an exhaustive service in June of 2017, including the timing belt, this car is primed for many more miles of motoring con brio.
