Description

Finished in the quintessential Ferrari color of Rosso Corsa, this 1988 Ferrari 328GTS is a stunning example that shows just 11,865 miles at the time of cataloging. The 328 was produced from 1986-1989, and the model run is split into two variations- the cars built from 1986 through the first half of 1988, and then what are known as the 1988.5-1989 cars. These later cars benefit from a significantly improved suspension to prepare the car for ABS which also necessitated a new convex 5-spoke wheel design, that is the easiest way to identify an early versus late car. As a GTS, this 328 has a vinyl wrapped targa top, which is complimented by a black vinyl wrapped spoiler that sits just behind the rear targa bar. The interior is finished in a deep, chocolate brown leather known as Testa di Moro, which is complimented with dark brown carpet throughout the interior. When you compare the interior of the 328 to more modern exotics, it is delightfully simple and allows you to focus on just one thing- enjoying the drive. When you slide into the driver’s seat, you are met with a perfect width leather wrapped Momo steering wheel, that frames a set of Veglia gauges that are essentially identical to those found in the 288 GTO. Next to your right leg, a pod houses a trio of dials that includes a clock, oil temperature and fuel level, and beneath that, a Blaupunkt Los Angeles tape deck looks perfect in the cabin. The center console houses the all important gated 5-speed manual shifter, and behind that, sits the climate control system, hazard lights and window switches. Mechanically, the 2.9-liter V8 from the 308 was replaced by a 3.2-liter unit with a host of updates throughout to give it more power, while also making it more livable and pleasant to drive. A greatly improved Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system was paired with a Marelli electronic ignition system to help the 328 effortlessly pass American emissions, while also allowing the car to idle and drive far more smoothly than any 308. Between this new injection system, 4 valves per cylinder, and the greater displacement, power for the 328 increased to 270 hp which helped it run from 0-60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. The 328 is considered by many to be one of the most reliable classic Ferraris- the engine and gearbox are notoriously robust and thanks to the transverse layout, the engine does not need to come out of the car to replace timing belts like on the later 348 and F355 series cars. Regardless of wether you are a Ferrari collector or new to the brand, it doesn’t take much seat time to realize that the 328 GTS is a proper driver’s car. Built with enough technology to be dependable and easy to use, but with out any nannies to get in the way of driving enjoyment, the 328 is a car that will always put a smile on your face. Inspection Summary The paint on this car is in very good condition for its age, showing only minor stone chips at the rear of the car-most of which are covered with dabs of touch up paint. There is paint protection film applied to the front ⅓ of the car, and minor peeling is occurring around the left headlight bucket. There is an intermittent issue where the right side headlight will get stuck in the open or closed position and a minor tear in the driver’s door seal. As you would anticipate on a car of this age, there are a few leaks underneath from the front radiator, and one of the front steering boots is torn- as well as one of the inner axle boots by the transaxle.
