Mac- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Sounds like a very nice car. Unfortunately, unlike Corvette, Ferrari is fairly stingy on information or just does not keep those kinds of records. So we can tell you how many UK RHD cars were built from the same place you got the 703 number, and how many Ferraris were produced in 1982, but that is about as good as we can do.

Introduce yourself below in Member Intros so Andrew, site owner, can get you signed up as an owner.

I have to admit, I have no clue where the Assembly Number is on a Mondial. Maybe somebody else can help. Will look in the WSM and see what it says.

Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Hello, I'm having a difficult time decoding my build number specific to my Mondial. I see there are 703 total Mondial 8's built between 1980-82, but does anyone know how many specific 1982 Mondials and furthermore Nero, etc.? Thanks and I love my Ferrari!

IIRC look to the door jam area just below the latch
OR
open the engine area and I know at least there is the Assembly number tag on the engine frame.

Hey thanks everyone for the info! This is my first Ferrari and what an awesome experience it has been in just the first few months of ownership...especially in Nebraska. I'm very surprised as to how well marked and relatively straightforward these older generation Ferrari's are. One thing I want to do next is sign up as the owner on the actual Ferrari website.

Well, to be fair, I have a T/348 model and that frame exists to take out the engine.

I do not know if your engine, transverse, has such a frame and so the tag may be elsewhere.

This actually may be a question for the 328 crowd as I'm expecting the placement to be the same for them!!!

Please let us know to keep this on the straight.

Yep, I believe all the Mondial models have the removable subframe. The 308 and 328 models do not as I understand.

This is a question for BRIAN or someone in the 3[0|2]8 area. I believe almost they do not have the frame. The engines could be done in situ and the 348/355 series had a frame for ease of taking out the engine. But I don't know for sure.

Also, the Mondials and their two-seater siblings should be the same as from the rear-pillar to the almost extreem rear end. The most differences was in some electrical, some suspension, and of course the extra bits giving Mondials the length for four seats. Other than that and some HP and setup differences, minor IIRC, they are about the same in engine bays.


We should find out. So, look fwd to you finding out and letting us know

You can find shops in the area w/R12 but be prepared to pay about $30 - $40/pound.

I used to buy R12 for $0.69/1 pound can!

Only certified shops are allowed to perform R12 service, but there are thousands of those.

All domestic production of R12 stopped on 1 January 1996, but huge stockpiles were accumulated by shop owners and the new recycling equipment is extending the life of of the stockpiles. As fewer and fewer cars using R12 remain, prices have actually leveled out.

You should be able to find an A/C shop in your area that will service the car. You might consider updating the car with a variable orifice valve (VOV) that will help maintain refrigerant quality in your car.

Missed this: I highly recommend staying with the R12 and not converting, which I did one time then converted back to stock R12. The new stuff is garbage on the conversion for this setup, and the R12 is COLD baby.

there are supplies available, and when those dry up, consider then.

Thanks for the compliment, I have rebuilt the fuse board and it needs belts, oil leak rectification and a few other issues dealt with, but it is worth the effort.

Hey all. Does anyone have an idea when Mondial qv production began or with what car number? My Mondial 8 is 41199 and I think it was produced in February of 82. It may be among the last Mondial 8's.
