Date of manufatcure

Can anyone tell me where I can obtain certification of the actual build date of my 1990 Ferrari Mondial T cabriolet

Putting this car back together and want to find out everything about it, originally a UK delivered car.

Any help at all would be appreciated

If it's a UK car it will have been imported through Maranello Concessionaires - you can contact them on 01784 436222.

Not sure if they'll have this information - but if they don't you'll struggle to find anyone else outside of the factory that would be able to tell you. They keep meticulous records of all the cars they sell.

Hope this helps.

Wow, Bazil,

What a fast response, many thanks.

I am not in the UK but will try your contact number anyway.

Could you tell me how difficult it would be to get data out of the factory???

uhm, if you own the car, you can register yourself at the owners site owners.ferrari.com. I believe you can get some info there on your car, but I heard a lot of people who weren't very fond of the site. I think the best is to call the importer, they have direct acces to the factory.

That's right - but unfortunately I thought of that this morning and checked to see if it includes the specific date of manufacture. It doesn't - it only shows the year.

Beerman - if you're calling from outside the UK - you'll need to dial:

Getting information from the factory is very difficult. I know a writer that has recently written a historical article for Ferrari. He is now trying to get history information instead of money and it is proving difficult. Then again he is trying for a car in the 1950s

It shouldn't be a very big problem I think. You need to contact somebody who is close to the factory like the official importer, or the dealer you have now (if it is a official one)

I have had fairly good luck getting basic build year, sales location, and original color information from the factory via the Ferrari Ownersite. Normally I get response within a day or two.

Just a quick thanks to all who were able to advise (especially Bazil).

I have received good information from Ferrari UK on the original delivery of the vehicle.

Beerman,

Your Mondial should have a manufacture plate on the driver's side door jamb which shows a build date; month and year anyway. Now that you've found the Ferrari Owners website, you can request a heritage certificate which goes into further detail.

Barry,

I have not seen a build plate with that depth of details on any Ferrari that I can recall. Maybe it is a US requirement for such in depth detail???

Heritage certificate????? How does one go about getting such a document???

Beerman,

The Ferrari Owners site is at:

http://www.owners.ferrari.com/

You'll have to register at the site. Just complete their questionaire completely certifying your ownership of the Mondial. Once registered, you can click on "Heritage Certificate" on their menu to apply for the certificate. You'll need information regarding your chassis #, engine #, gearbox #, etc.
