This 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB is powered by a 2.9-liter quad-cam V8 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in Rosso Chiaro over tan leather. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, 14″ five-spoke alloy wheels, pop-up headlights, a quad-exit exhaust system, air conditioning, a gated shifter, and electric windows. Work performed in 2023 involved changing the oil, cleaning the carburetors, and replacing the fuel pump.
The 308 GTB was introduced at the 1975 Paris Motor Show and featured Pininfarina-styled bodywork. This example is finished in Rosso Chiaro and features a driver-side mirror, louvered rear quarter windows, a vented decklid, and quad exhaust outlets. The pop-up headlight lifter contacts were cleaned in January 2023. A dent is visible on the rear panel, and the hood was reportedly repainted under prior ownership.
Silver 14″ five-spoke alloy wheels are mounted with 205/70 VR 14 Michelin Radial X tires. The car features a fully independent suspension with double wishbones front and rear, and stopping power is provided by ventilated discs at each corner.
The cockpit features bolstered seats trimmed in Tobacco leather upholstery along with color-coordinated door panels. Equipment includes air conditioning, a cassette stereo, electric windows, and a gated shifter with a dogleg gear pattern.
The three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel frames Veglia instrumentation including an 85-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 7,700-rpm redline as well as an analog clock and gauges for fuel level, water temperature, and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer shows 19k miles, approximately 500 of which were added under current ownership.
The mid-mounted 2.9L quad-cam V8 is equipped with four twin-choke Weber 40DCNF carburetors and was factory rated at 237 horsepower. The carburetors were overhauled in November 2020, at which time the intake manifold and radiator fans were repaired. Service in January 2023 involved changing the oil, cleaning the carburetors, flushing the fuel system, and replacing the fuel pump. The most recent timing belt service was performed in 2014.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential.
