79' 308 GTS 9200 miles !

hey guys, i am new to this forum and i have to mention the fact that i never owned or driven a ferrari in my life.. i have inherited my uncles 1979 GTS .. it has 9200 original miles after doing some research, I have not yet seen a lower mileage 308 yet. Last time I got in it was about a month ago since it hasnít been started for about 5 months it took a couple of cranks before it fired up. The interior is black and by god it still has the new smell to it! I couldnít believe it , there are no scratches anywhere, the condition of the car is immaculate!! Exterior is just gorgeous too .. funny thing is I donít remember the color of the car.. it wasnít red, black, white, it was a charcoal color/silver. I was wondering if anyone can help me locate a color chart or tell me what might the possible color be? After doing some research I know there is silver and charcoal color, are there any other color thatís available?. I know people who are looking to buy a Ferrari wants to buy a red one and if that is the case what might this one be worth ? I just might need to sell it because I am moving out of state to continue my education. If anyone can help me out and give me some tips on selling this beautiful car Iíd appreciate it, I am pretty sure someone will enjoy this car more than I since I am more of a from a to B then im happy. No offense to anyone here but I just donít know how to enjoy this kind of sports car

thank you for your time

Suggest you contact Mike Sheehan at www.ferraris-online.com. He should be able to give you an idea on the value of the 308.

What part of California? I am in SF and would be interested in the car.

Having a low mileage car can be good but too low can also be a very bad and costly thing. The seals in the engine and other places and dry up and crack. I would also getting a PPI and can recommend a shop in the SF area if you are in that area.

i am actually driving it from my uncles garage in nevada to LA this weekend.. is there anything i should look out for? because like you said.. things can get old and crack because it hasn't been driven much.. he started every so often 2-4 month at a time to warm it up.. but i dont think he drove it very often.. ill take some pictures of the car after i make it safely home this way i can get a overall feel of the car and if you are interested perhaps you can come look at it..

one more question.. just out of curiosity what is the difference between a 79 308 gTB and 308 gts ? which one is worth more? if both were same color, mileage and condition? i saw a 79 GTB sold for $27500 white with only 13000 miles, thought maybe that was a steal?

79 308 GTS - Status? (also vs. GTB)

Ifeelsoblu:
What is the status of your 308GTS?
If you have not sold it yet, I would be interested in possibly purchasing it.


GTS vs. GTB

I believe the difference is that the GTS is a "T-top" -- the roof manually comes off, while the GTB is a solid roof.

Thanks!
