SOLD!!! Good start: ’74 Ferrari 308GT4

Ferrari 308GT4The once unloved 308GT4 is finally getting some love. Ferrari’s first mid-engine V8 spent years is the doldrums suffering in the hands of entry-level owners who, in many cases, had their eyeballs yanked out of their sockets when the first estimates for minor and major service were presented. For this reason, many 308s were poorly maintained and restored on a shoe string. Now that the 308 has been discovered, finding a good one at a fair price has become difficult. If you want one (and you should), you’ll have to look at 10 cars (probably more) to find the right one and getting to 10 can take a long time. Sports Car Market has really nice 308GT4s trading around $60,000 but they are hard to find in that condition. So I guess the burden of finding a nice one that will appreciate falls on a buyer who isn’t afraid to spend a little bit of money on a car with good bones. Today’s offering might be that car. 19083678859_30a7b2fced_kThe previous owner has a lot of experience in the Ferrari world and purchased this 308GT4 to take some pressure off his PF Cabriolet. That was in 1997. After a 13 years of happy motoring, the owner embarked on a full engine and transaxle rebuild. Needless to say, that cost a bundle. But as time passed, the 308 became a little too difficult to get in and out of so the Ferrari sat, unused, after completing around 250 miles. The engine is fresh and strong and there is a video of it revving freely after a detailed inspection and a few turns of the adjustment screws in the carbs. The body needs some attention. It has some bubbles in various places and will eventually need to be stripped and refinished properly. The interior is pretty decent but a few trim pieces need to be glued and dyed. The seller says the wheels need to be checked and refinished before you do any serious road work. Something about high magnesium content and porosity. This is an eBay auction with a Buy It Now at $38,500.00. That leaves enough in the bank to do the cosmetics or forget the concours circuit and drive the hell out of it.

Congratulations! Announcing the most popular Mint listing of 2013

As we approach Mint2Me’s first anniversary, we took a look at some statistics provided by our website host, WordPress. We had some surprising news. Out of the 1,165 cars we featured during our first year (actually 11 months), the Fiat X1/9 was our most popular featured car (by page views). The Fiat was submitted to us from David Scheinberg, the original owner and careful caretaker of this little Italian jewel. The Fiat sold within days although the transaction took a little longer to complete as most long distance transactions do. But everyone is happy and if I remember correctly, the seller flew in to Michigan flew in and drove it home to California. 

When launched in 1972, the Fiat X1/9 was the first affordable mid-engine sports car, and was immediately dubbed the “Baby Ferrari”.  Those early cars were powered by a 1.3-liter SOHC four putting out about 63 hp in U.S. trim, running through a 4-speed gearbox.  This particular example is at the other end of the X1/9’s historical arc – 1987 was the final model-year during which X1/9s (badged “Bertone” from 1982 through the end of the run) were imported to the U.S.

Bertone X1/9Compared with the early models, the ’87 is more powerful (displacement up to 1.5-liters, and output to 75 hp), more relaxed and fuel efficient on the highway (5-speed gearbox; 32+ mpg on regular fuel), more modern and reliable (Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection; well-sorted electrical system), and more durable (improved corrosion resistance).  Read More

Giallo Pagoda: ’74 Alfa Romeo Spider 2000

1974 Alfa Spider

These pre-rubber bumper Alfas are a bargain. We call them Kamn-tails because they have a “bobbed” rear deck and not the “disco” tapered tail of the Duettos and early Spiders. But they are an attractive car with lots of bling fore and aft. The power comes from a 2 liter, double overhead cam 4 breathing through twin Webers (in this case). The 5-speed transmission is a delight to use if the 2nd gear synchro hasn’t blown up as many do. This one is fine and we suggest you keep it that way by double clutching most of the time particularly when it is cold. Read More
