James- Welcome. They made 308s with carbs and single distributor electronic ignition and they were very reliable, but early 308s tend to rust very easily. Had a Euro 78 GTS a long time ago. Ran like a top, but after only three years, the door panels rusted through (in the UK). 328s do not have rust problems, in general, because in the 83/84 timeframe, Ferrari began a rustproofing system that was very effective.
If you can find one that someone has restored and rustproofed, Webers are very reliable once set up properly. The latest car you are discussing, a 328, was made in 1989, so having an independent PPI is very important. Some of those cars will be consignments, and the dealer is not going to spend a shilling on one of those unless forced.

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