328 values

Thought I would start a thread on this. No reason we can't discuss 308s too. I am not selling mine so I haven't looked in awhile. Quick search on the internet only brings up about 10 in the US with a low asking price of 75K. This would be a 50+% increase over just a couple of years ago.

This should be fun to watch. Seems early vetros are commanding bigger and bigger dollars and may be pulling later cars along with them. I do not believe some of the nonsense out there about them following the 246, but who knows. If you take 76 to 88/89 and the total produced, it is not a huge number and the cars are iconic, it could mean a good run. But who really knows, not selling mine so I am merely sitting along with you Ed, watching.

World market "old Ferraris" will go no where but up. They are not a mid or now latter life crisis car as the 49 Merc, 57 chevy or 67 mustang were. Totally difference following and purchasing formula.
As we see more electric and driver less vehicles these will be more sought after.

I read an article which was suggesting the 308s,328s were the next cars to go up in value. Considering new ferraris costing over $200k, the older Fcar values should appreciate.
On Hemming Motors I see 382s between 50-100k

It is interesting speculation. I try not to get too sucked into it, but there are some interesting facts which say something about current 3x8 prices are way way too low.

Below is a table of aproximate 3x8 production.

These are very low production numbers compared to other iconic cars such as the Jaguar E-Type (70,000 built), Corvette C2 (118,000 built) or Porsche 911 (too many to count).

When a non-Tifosi visualizes a Ferrari, they first think of the 3x8 body shape. It is iconic, timeless, sex-on-four-wheels, beautiful. However, the Ferrari was an “elite” car; not something everyone dreamed of ever owning and they were not inexpensive when new. I think this is why there has been such inertia in pricing. They were not the cool car the neighbor had down the street; they were the object of lust you'd see in a magazine.

For the Tifosi, it may be that the 3x8 is starting to become the Ferrari old-school sentimental equivalent of the MGB or 1964 Mustang. They are just getting old enough now that people with enough means to own a few Ferraris are looking back toward them to recapture that “simple” old days of row-your-own-gears, computer-free motoring.

These next few years will be interesting.

Looks, handling and the last perfect size Ferrari. I'm not surprised that prices are going up significantly. The engine can be taken up to 3,5 and even 4 litres, with reliable high power. It's a very well conceived sports car, able to handle a lot of additional power with only a few upgrades like brakes and suspension. It's an icon.

They made lots of these cars; lately, these and TRs have been spiking for reasons that make no sense.

I think this is speculator driven, with the idea that the majority of Ferrari buyers these days of lots of money and no brains.

I owned a 328 GTS once - a very nice 40K car.

I expect the market to eventually cool down, whereby a lot of people are going to get burned, as we've seen previously, Oh well...

Lots is relative. As stated below, 21.000 altogether are only a three year production run today. As more people discover the magic, there is no turning back. This inevitably drives the prices up. Cool down? I wish you are right but I fear not so.

i guess when there is such a huge gap between the dino and the 3X8 and the boxer and the TR, people are going to be forced to buy the next best thing. Can't see why that won't drag them up a bit.

just did a quick survey and couldn't find one under 75K ask price. There are a couple around that price on ebay that haven't moved so I am guessing they are not actually selling for those prices. I'm gonna guess a decent one 60-70K ?

The way things are going lately, wouldn't surprise me to see those take off too. I mean, look what happened to the much unloved 308 GT4!

Those are cars to be enjoyed. Not really fast, but a raw, MT Ferrari for sure. There were many variations. Be careful of the engine-out requirement on the Mondial T (348 engine).

If anything else, how often do you see a mid-engined 2+2 car anyway?

Back in '83-'84 I was thinking about a Ferrari and drove a friend's cherry 308. After driving it, my reaction was "Is This All There Is" - to steal a song title. I ended up buying a 330GTC, a fabulous car. When I decided to dip my toes in Ferrari again, I didn't even think about 308/328s. I considered the 360/430s too big, but when I tried the 355, just like Goldilocks, I said, "Just right". While you have to plan on spending some money on maintenance, if you want to play in the $60-120K ballpark, the 355 is the song to sing.

355 is one of the most beautiful Ferraris ever and a great track car.

Just wished the maintenance was not so challenging.

I sure wish I still had my 308. About 25 years ago I had a 1979 308 GTS. It was a total Euro version, with the car having been brought into the USA on someone's one time exemption. Such a fun car, and the exhaust had an aroma like no other car I've ever encountered.

I have had my 308 for 9 years now! Time really does fly.


It has been a labour of love getting her to the state she is in now and I am truly as besotted with the car as when I first got her.


A month back I went to test drive a 355 for the first time and was very disappointed. It has always been a halo car for me and whilst it is very pretty, sounds great and is certainly faster than my 308, I found it a bit less raw. Also, and I concede that this sounds ridiculous, the 308 is so much more practical than the 355 in that it rides higher (we have speed humps all over the place here) and I don't need to rev it so high to get the most out of it. Naturally the engine out cambelt services for the 355 are a totally different cost proposition.


Here in SA, the 355 is more than double the cost of a 308 QV. For an "i"" it can be even three times as much. On this basis I consider the 308 (and 328) to be something of a bargain!!!
