I am hoping some of you might be able to assist in a little market analysis I am carrying out on some 1970-1980's Ferrari models. At present, I am trying to find out what the approximate original market values were for the below list of cars. Approximate values are all I need at the present time, and I have taken a random selection of models from that era which interest me.
I would also welcome thoughts on current values (again approx estimates) for the same models if one were to purchase in 2013.
Preference is for Euro and/or GBP values, but any assistance in any currency would be greatly appreciated.
Not quite your desired date,and I hope I am recalling correctly but I went into a Ferrari dealer in London in 1976 to look at a 10 month old 512BB on offer for pounds 12000. The salesman tried to talk me up to buying a new one for pounds 14000. By comparison, I owned a two room flat in Teddington, which sold for pounds 12000 the following year. I didn't actaully have the means to buy either car,. I think I might even have been unemployed at the time.
From about 1970 to 1975, I used new Ferrari prices as a measure of inflation by the number of times I had to multiply my annual salary to buy one. At the time I had a Dino fixation and IIRC the 246GT-GTS was between pounds 4500 and 5000 in 1972, although I am less sure about the reliability of these two numbers, my age is showing.
Barry- My Dino 246 GT was $10,600 in 1975 and I traded it and $5000 for a 70 Daytona in 1978. My Euro 78 308 GTS out of Germany was $18,000 in 1981. Sold to the US in 1983 for $21,000. There was no such thing as a euro currency back then.
