Selling my 308 GTSi
Hi all, its been a while since I've been on. It's finally time to let the 308 go to a new home. But fear not I'll not be leaving our community as another Italian is on the cards.
I have owned this car since Feb 2005. It is a LHD ex California car who’s original owner was Edward JD Bartello JNR, the owner of the San Francisco 49ers. I have all the paperwork of proof.
It was originally silver however the paint was looking a little tired. As I always hoped to own a “Rosso Corsa” Ferrari, have been restoring cars for 30 years and had no intentions of ever selling it I took the decision to carry out a full body refurb and change the colour to Rosso Corsa. I fitted an original deep front spoiler during the refurb.
In the last year I have given the paint, wheels, interior and engine a re-fresh. I have full photographic evidence of all work carried out to the car in my 18 year ownership. (over 150 photos).
Engine has just had a complete service entailing NEW rocker cover gaskets, timing belts, timing belt bearings, tensioners, clutch kit, plugs and ALL fluids. A new coolant expansion bottle was fitted at the same time. (Water pump was not changed as it was fitted new at previous service).
Notes:- I removed all the US emissions equipment as it is not needed for the UK and helps the engine breathe a little easier. I have all the bits and they will go with the car. Aircon is not gassed as I never got it re-gassed after taking the engine out to clean and service it, plus I never used it, warm day roof off.
What’s with the car:- Service history from 1986 when car had 609 miles on the clock, a large file of bills adding up to over £60K as proof of work carried out both in the US and the UK. The UK servicing was carried out by Terry Hoyles Ferrari Specialist and in my ownership Aiden Bagnell exotic car Specialist and parts mostly sourced from Eurospares and Superperformance in the UK. Also included are all old mot certificates and most tax discs.
Car has its original tool kit leather bags in excellent condition (including original tools) and original leather hood cover for when the targa panel is stored behind the seats. Original leather weave owners manual pouch with all manuals intact. 5 new tires recently fitted to.
Car will have full mot, (not done yet as I'm carrying out a few little finishing touches).
Please only contact me if you are interested in buying the car,while I’m happy to chat via email about any information anyone would need any deal will only be done in person or via phone and car to be collected in person or by an agreed method. I have no wish to deal with tele sales etc.
Car is located in Northern Ireland. I live 20 minutes from both main airports and easy access to both boat terminals so I have no problem meeting any buyer.
Note:- registration is not included in the sale, the car will have its original UK number put back on.
