A list of minor problems such as a loose left mirror; a new air intake boot and an engine bay detail were resolved.
The Rosso Corsa FER 300/6 paint is very nice and appears to be all original with no signs of spot repairs over the years and all panels have excellent gaps and fit. There is no evidence of accident repairs to the body, underside or chassis. The trim, gaskets, window glass and lenses are also in excellent condition. The cream leather on the seats and door panels is in excellent condition, especially considering that it is now 32 years old! The dash covering and headliner are also in excellent condition, again, especially considering that it is now 32 years old! The carpets have been protected by throw rugs and are also in excellent condition. The car had excellent drivability and functioning of all systems and has been extremely well sorted before the current service and will be even better when finished! It goes straight hands-off with no shimmy and brakes in a straight line. The engine bay is nicely detailed and the under panels, belly pan and suspension are in good condition. 328 GTS s/n 59649 is fitted with the Factory optional 7 x 16 front and 8 x 16 rear wheels with a new set of 205/50/16 front and 225/50/16 rear Kumo tires.
The 328 succeeded the highly popular 308 for the 1986 model year and offered an increased displacement V-8 plus a myriad of detail improvements throughout. The mid-engine 328 featured an upgraded 3.2-liter V-8 putting out 270 horsepower, thanks to a sophisticated Marelli electronic ignition system and the retained Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. The styling was freshened with new seat patterns, new door handles and tidier and more modern treatment to the front and rear bumpers both of which were painted in body color. The controls were significantly reworked as well, with new switch gear and revised dashboard and door trims. Production of the 328 ended in the fall of 1989, marking the end of the transverse mid-engine Ferraris, a line that began with the 246 Dino. As one of the last Ferraris engineered and launched during Enzo Ferrari’s lifetime and as the last of the pre-computer Ferraris, the 328s are revered for their blend of usability and comparable reliability, as well as the comparative ease of servicing, thanks to in-car engine service work and cam-belt replacements. Thanks to the 328’s low sweeping body lines and the sounds of the well-proven, high-revving V-8 right behind your seat, every trip to dinner, Sunday brunch or your local coffee shop is a great driving experience.
