308 Gtb

I just purchased a 1975 Ferrari 308 GTB . I was not really looking for a 308 but this one really caught my eye and the price was quite fair. It is a very early fiberglass, dry sump, carb version, which I believe makes it a fairly rare 308. The last owner fitted the car for track use so it has a larger front spoiler, rear lip spoiler, BBS wheels, and sport seats. To the best of my knowledge it was never actually tracked. I am debating if I should pull the sports seats and refit it with original 308 seats. Attached are a couple of pictures. I should be picking it up in a few days.

WOW! Thats one gorgeous machine. I used to not be a fan of the 308s but both Pete's and now yours are definately changing my mind. Beautiful car and I hope you enjoy it.

Sweet car! I prefer the front spoiler on mine, I do love the rear spoiler on yours. I wouldn't mind that modification to my car.

That antenna on you car I don't really like. Of course mine doesn't even work.

Nice 308! Love the wheels!

Pete, I agree. The front spoiler is a bit too deep. Eventually I would like to replace it with an original and I will probably pull the rear one off at that time. The antenna definitely has to go as well. First project though is to replace the aftermarket sports seats with the originals. A set of original 308 seats are now sitting in my garage. Now I just have to clean them up a bit figure out how to make the change (any suggestions???).
