This 1983 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole is powered by a 2.9-liter quad-cam V8 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in red over black leather upholstery. Equipment includes a limited-slip differential, a removable roof panel, pop-up headlights, air conditioning, a gated shifter, electric windows, and 390mm alloy wheels with Michelin TRX tires as well as an aftermarket Sony CD stereo, carbon-fiber doorsill plates, and intake and exhaust components. The car was acquired by its current owner in September 2020 and was listed on BaT in September 2021. This 308 GTS Quattrovalvole has 42k miles and is now offered on dealer consignment in California with an owner’s manual, a tool kit, spare parts, partial service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean title.
The car is finished in red and features a black removable roof panel, pop-up headlights, dual power-adjustable Vitaloni mirrors, louvered rear quarter windows, a vented decklid, and polished aftermarket exhaust outlets. The bumpers were refinished under prior ownership, and photos showing blemishes in the finish and a misaligned driver’s door are provided in the gallery below.
Five-spoke 390mm alloy wheels are finished in silver and wear 220/55 Michelin TRX tires. The car features fully-independent suspension with double wishbones front and rear, and stopping power is provided by a ventilated disc at each corner.
The bolstered seats are trimmed in black leather upholstery and are accompanied by matching door panels. Appointments include air conditioning, electric windows, carbon-fiber doorsill plates, and an aftermarket Sony CD stereo with Boston Acoustics speakers as well as a gated shifter with a dogleg gear pattern. The consigning dealer states that the shifter must be pushed down to engage first gear and associated service parts are included in the sale.
The leather-wrapped MOMO steering wheel frames Veglia Borletti instrumentation consisting of a 180-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 7,700-rpm redline as well as gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. An analog clock and oil-temperature gauge are housed in the center console. The six-digit odometer shows 42k miles, approximately 300 of which were added under current ownership.
The mid-mounted 2.9L quad-cam V8 is equipped with four valves per cylinder, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, and an aftermarket intake tube and exhaust system. The oil-pressure sending unit does not work, and the smog pump, air-injection tubes, and catalytic converter have been removed. Work performed in 2020 included rebuilding the water pump and replacing the fuel filter, spark plugs, camshaft seals, timing and engine-accessory belts, and distributor and valve cover gaskets.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential.
