Very Fly: ’77 Ferrari 308GTB
To regular folks, the Volvo 1800S will always be known as the car The Saint drove on TV. The Ferrari 308 will always be known as P.I Thomas Magnum’s borrowed ride. That one was Rosso Corsa and it was a GTS and not a Berlinetta like today’s featured car. Will the color, Giallo Fly Yellow, save it from the TV reference? We hope so. Let’s go on record by saying we prefer the GTB to the GTS for 2 reasons – we like the fluid look of the roofline in body color and this particular 308 has Webers and not Fuel Injection. Roar! This is a really nice looking car with recent services performed at a reputable shop. That doesn’t mean all is well because we have seen Steve at Auto Turismo Sport scratch his head when a customer brings in a Ferrari allegedly recently serviced, that looks like hell. With a Ferrari, a thorough PPI is everything. This one looks worth the expense. It is a relatively low mileage car but not ridiculously so. The seller says everything works including the A/C and power windows. The Sports Car Market Price Guide has these steel Berlinettas at between $26,500 for a car with many needs to a high of $50,000 for a near perfect car. Since nothing is perfect without a trailer underneath it, let’s say this will sell for quite a bit less and worth every penny. Bring a magnet if you go to see it. If it is fiberglass add $30 grand to the price! Click here for the eBay auction.
