This 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole was imported into the USA when new by the current owner in 1984. All EPA/DOT requirements were sorted properly in 1984. Meticulous records of this process were kept, including all correspondence. A binder with all this information is with the car. The current owner enjoyed and maintained the car until selling it locally in 1994. From 1994-1998, the Ferrari continued to be properly maintained and was treated to a suspension upgrade (Theiler sway bars/bushings & springs), Tubi exhaust, upgraded steering wheel (Momo Corse), and an in-dash Blaupunkt Ventura CD83 stereo. In 1998, the Ferrari was purchased back by Fox Motorsports for the original owner. It has remained under our fastidious care for the original owner ever since. It lives in climate-controlled storage and on a battery trickle charger when not in use. It has never seen salt or snow and has had very few miles put on the car over that past 11 years.
It is finished in Nero (black) Metallic with a tan interior, a welcome departure from the all too common Rosso Corsa (red). The exterior is excellent, benefitting from annual detailing regardless of miles. A repaint of the front spoiler and fenders was performed in early 1994. The removable ‘GTS’ roof panel is in excellent shape and installs/removes easily and properly. The interior is excellent as well, due to careful owners and regular treatment of the leather. The seats are near new and the controls throughout show very little wear. The only wear of note is around the ignition trim ring, on the rim of the Momo steering wheel, and on the clock’s glass cover. The power windows, headlights, indicators, driving lights, etc. all function properly.
The 15,000-mile service was performed (including timing belt, etc) in 1994 (12,432 km) at Lake Forest Sports Cars (LFSC) in Illinois. LFSC also documented the replacement of the original speedometer, which had just failed at 12,432 kilometers (included with car). A new speedometer, also in kilometers, was installed and the driver’s doorsill was correctly tagged to reflect that change. In 2003 at 35,316 km (total), a 30,000-mile service, including timing belts and water pump, was performed. Regular maintenance has been done annually by Fox Motorsports (regardless of miles) including: oil, brake fluid, and coolant changes. A new set of tires were installed in May of 2011 (Bridgestone Potenza SO-2), as the previous tires were over 10 years old. Included with the Ferrari are books, records, tool kit, jack, warning triangle, spare wheel/tire, and seat covers.
