308 Owners List

Thought it would be a good idea to make a list of 308 owners on Ferrarilife

Please post up a picture of your 308 and some info about it. It's up to you what info you want to provide but an example would be:

Model: 308 GTS
Year: 1977
Country: Belgium
Steering: LHD
Chassis number: 81092
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Nero


In order to keep the thread on topic, please only post once in this thread with all the info you would like to provide on your 308

Thanks.

Steering: LHD
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Nero

Originally a USA car brought over to the UK in 1998. I've owned it 3 years now. It was originally silver but when tidying up the body I decided to change the colour as a red GTS was always my dream 308.

I do almost all my own work on the car and keep the history of it since I bought it on my own little site. It's nothing fancy, more to help anyone interested in 308's. http://www.maranellohouse.com/308restoration.html

This car of mine is certainly well-documented on this forum. The photo below was taken at Cypress Mountain Park in West Vancouver, B.C., Canada (which will host a few of the events for the 2010 winter Olympics)

Hi All,
I bought my 308 a year ago, sold my porsche that I bought new in 1983. What a different car this is. I loved my Porsche but the Ferrari takes my feelings to a new level. My car came with no records, tools or manuals but it was very clean and the PPI checked out ok but now I need to do service. Since I do dot know when the belta wrer changed, I am having that done this winter and local dealership.
Enzo9_1 I loved what you have dome so far and will be checking your site often. Below are some pics a local college photohgraher took this summer.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm not sure what that is next to the shift knob, but it's just something I had sitting in the open ashtray. It might be the plug from my V-1 that I use in my other car?? The shift gate lock is also in there.

Glenn, when did you add the shields on the fenders? I'm assuming it was done in the past 6 months. I like them.

There are not many injected berlinettas to choose from in the United States, but I found one I am happy with. The engine and gearbox were rebuilt (and photodocumented) by Michael Sheehan, as well as the cooling system, at 49k miles. The suspension was completely rebuilt including dampers, springs, control arms, bushes, ball joints, etc., at 66k miles. Brake system was completely redone then, too. The electrics and air conditioning were sorted and upgraded at 70k miles. All of the little things and routine maintenance were attended to along the way, too. Then I bought it at 70,800 miles. A well-sorted car that I have driven with great enjoyment for about a year now.

Hi Kevin,
I purchased the shields about a month after I bought the ferrari.
I looked at many types but I decided to go with the real nice ones that glue on and not the magnetic cheap ones. I got lucky and found a brand new pair on ebay for $225.00.
Your car looks awsome, How much did the Ferrari Classiche set you back ??
Thanks for the comments
Glenn

The Classiche Program was about a Grand. If the build sheets were available, the price would have doubled to get them. But, they didn't have them for my year anymore.

Your best bet to find the information would be through the Swiss Ferrari Historian, Mr. Marcel Massini. PM me if you would like his email address.

Model: 308 GTB Euro spec (dry sump)
Year: 1975 (September)
Country: Amsterdam
Steering: LHD
Chassis number: 18729
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: crema

Does an earlier chassis still exist? Engine block stamped "74"-1974?

Zender bodykit with 16" BBS rims, 225/60 tyres all round, Brembo brakes.

Motor out and in pieces for heads to be converted to run on unleaded petrol, aircon system to be rebuilt, cooling system and electrics to be checked.

Looking very forward to Spring when I get to drive my fettled beauty around again. And hopefully participate in FLED '09.
