We are pleased to offer 1983 Euro model model 308 GTB QV s/n 46501, a fully serviced, very well documented, lightweight Euro model 308 GTB QV. With only 748 total US model and Euro model 308 GTB QVs built in 1983-84-85, as a last-generation 308, as a GTB and as a QV, s/n 46501 represents the best, the most user-friendly, wallet friendly and the most collectable of the Ferrari 308 GTBs. S/n 46501 was sold new in 1983 by Crepaldi, the Authorized Ferrari dealer for Milano, (their sticker is still in rear window), moved to Montreal, Canada in 1990 and then to the US in 2016. All major mechanical components have been serviced through its life and so the engine, transaxle, brakes and suspension work as new. This is a wonderful driving 308 GTB QV, the syncros work smoothly, the clutch is light to use, grips quickly and the car can be thrown into corners with total ease and confidence. Performance is excellent thanks to the smooth power curve of the last evolution of the 308 GTB engine.

The body is exceptionally straight and dent free although there is a slight crease in the hood caused by someone trying to close the hood. 308 GTB QV s/n 46501 was Metallic Silver (Argento FER 101/C) when new and then repainted in Ferrari red Rosso Corsa in 2002 by Lancia Garage in Montreal. The twenty year old paint is very nice and the leather is in unusually nice condition. Today there is no evidence of accident or rust repairs to the body, underside or chassis. The body and interior are all original and in superb condition. The trim, gaskets, window glass and lenses are also in excellent condition. The lightweight Euro bumpers are in excellent condition with no discoloration. 308 GT QV s/n 46501 is fitted with a deep “Euro” front spoiler and is mounted on an excellent set of 205/55 ZR 16 front and 225/55 ZR 16 rear Continental Extreme Contact GT tires mounted on the Factory optional Speedline 7 x 16 inch front and 8 x 16 rear wheels and has the correct “thin line” spare wheel and tire.

As per the Carfax report, there was an accident reported on 18 Sept., 2002, twenty years ago. As per a text exchange on 31 Feb., with the former Italian-Canadian owner, a lady in a 1994 Hyundai-Elantra ran into the left rear wheel in the driveway of the “ItalVideoDisco” parking lot which required a new left rear wheel. Today there is no sign of any repairs to the left rear inner or outer bodywork or suspension. While in the Lancia Garage paint shop in Montreal in 2002 308 GTB QV s/n 46501 was repaired and repainted from Metallic Silver to Ferrari Rosso Corsa red.

The interior is finished in attractive black leather with an excellent patina and the door panels, carpets and dash are also all in excellent condition and look near new. The car makes excellent power with no smoke, and has excellent oil pressure. The suspension is firm yet compliant, and the brakes stop the car effectively and evenly. Second gear synchro is very good, both when warm and cold. All the switches and gauges are fully operational.

2021, Aug., offered by Old Stone Garage, Palm Beach, FL, per website. This example was originally delivered new to Italy where it was sold through Crepaldi (sticker still in rear window) and finished in Rosso Corsa over Nero leather interior with black carpets, the same livery it wears today and optioned with Factory Air conditioning, Power windows, Deep Front Spoiler. The early history of this example is not well known but it is said that it was originally purchased in 1983 by an enthusiast Italian collector and sparingly used until it was later imported to Canada by a local Italian in 1990. It was in this owners possession that the car was repainted to ensure it showed in pristine condition. After almost 26 years of ownership, the 308 was bought by another Ferrari collector and imported to the USA where it has remained since. To ensure that the Ferrari was in good working order, five years ago, it was sent for a full major service, whilst having all ancillaries checked and corrected where needed. It then traded hands last year to a local Florida resident now showing 33,000km on the odometer. A true automobile enthusiast, he naturally intended to drive and show the Ferrari. Consequently, he paid to have a major completed to ensure it was fresh and ready for many miles of enjoyment. More recently servicing has been done to the brake system and rear axle has been replaced with new. This wonderful example shows well with only 38,753km (23,921 miles) on the odometer. It is complete with its tool bag, jack and book/pouch.
