This 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS is finished in Oro Chiaro Metallizzatto over Testa Di Moro leather. Power is supplied by a carbureted 2.9-liter V8 paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle, and a major service performed last year at Fast Cars of Redondo Beach, California included new timing belts, rebuilding and tuning the carburetors, fresh catalytic converters, degreeing the cams, and more. The car also benefits from a newer clutch, Pertronix electronic ignition, Koni shocks, a rebuilt master cylinder and brake booster, newer tires, and upgraded A/C components. A repaint has been performed in the original shade along with rust repair, and the interior has also been reupholstered. This 308 GTS is now being offered for sale in California with receipts from the seller, a vehicle production data sheet, factory manual, a tool kit, and a clean Montana title in the name of the seller’s company.

A repaint was performed in its factory shade of Oro Chiaro Metallizzatto (106-Y-137) following rust repair in the rockers and wheel wells, with new sheet metal welded in where necessary. New window and door moldings were also added along with new window channel felt and a fresh targa top seal.

Factory 14” Cromodora wheels wear a newer set of Michelin 205/70 rubber. Stainless steel brake pistons and lines were added, along with a rebuilt master cylinder, booster, and calipers.

Inside, the seats were reupholstered and new seat belts have been installed. The factory steering wheel was re-covered, and the air conditioning system was upgraded with a new compressor, condenser, receiver/drier, and an R134 refrigerant conversion.

LED headlights and dash lights have been added, as has a modern CD player head unit which is currently disconnected. Just under 38k miles are currently shown on the odometer, only a few hundred of which have reportedly been added by the seller.

The 2.9L Tipo V8 is mounted transversely and was rated at 240 horsepower in US-spec when new. A major service was performed in 2017 by Fast Cars of Redondo Beach, California as detailed by the complete receipt in the gallery.

Work totaled over $7,600 and included degreeing the cams, repairing the vacuum system, and new timing belts, as well as rebuilding the carburetors and smog equipment. Pertronix electronic ignition has been installed along with new Scuderia Rampante coolant hoses, fuel lines, spark plugs, distributors, alternator, battery, a hi-torque starter, an AP Racing clutch, and upgraded fusebox.

Suspension components have been powdercoated and refreshed with Koni shocks in addition to newer inner and outer bushings, sway bar bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, and wheel bearings. The car reportedly passed a California emissions test in March 2017.

The tool kit and jack are shown in the gallery below along with the factory data sheet. A car cover is also included, as are a spare, two sets of keys, records, and the manuals. A running and start-up video are viewable below.
