Correct VIN on 328 (repeat post from classic forum)

Hi all,

I was on the lookout for a 328GTS and found an 1986 model for sale. The chassisnbr for this car is ZFFWA20B000059533.

However, if I look through the Registry on this website, this VIN is registered to a 328GTB from 1986 ???

Can someone confirm that 59533 belongs to a GTB and not a GTS, otherwise there is either a mistake in the registry, or the owner has given me the wrong VIN, or (is it possible?) he cut the roof off his GTB and made a GTS ??

Thanks for any clarification,
Frank

the 20 in the VIN means GTS

Frank,

Thanks for posting this correction. I need to add a disclaimer to the Registry saying that the information is not guaranteed. Sorry for the confusion I will update the record right away.

Saw the car and thinking of buying - opinions ?

Saw the car yesterday and VIN is correct (GTS model).

Sales price is now 33,000 Euro.

Noted the following:
-seat has small tear in it (expensive to repair ? see classic thread)
-trunk zipped cover is torn on one side
-electric antenna button does not work (antenna can be pulled manually)
- AC not used for over a year, but seems to be working
- right side window panel cover can not be opened
- small indications of potential rust under wheel sills, but still no cracks in paint.

Car is original Italian, but imported in Belgium in 1996, produced in 11/1985, so must be among first couple of hundred 328GTS models out of factory.

Sound like a good deal ?

Will also post this in generic discussions site.

Regards,
Frank
