No Reserve: 1975 Ferrari 308 GT4 PrivateCars - Portland - 5 views
This 1975 Ferrari 308 GT4 was sold new at Ramsey Motors of San Francisco and reportedly remained in the California Bay Area until being acquired in 2018 by the current owner, Keith Martin of Sports Car Market. The car is finished in Hazelnut Metallic over a beige interior, and factory options include air conditioning, power windows, and a heated rear window. The 3.0-liter DOHC V8 was rebuilt in 2005 and is paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. An aftermarket stereo was installed and the carburetor and ignition systems were serviced by the selling dealer last year. This Dino GT4 was featured on BaT in 2018 and is now offered on dealer consignment at no reserve with service records, a copy of the window sticker, and a clean Oregon title.
The 308 was designed by Marcello Gandini and was the first production Ferrari to feature Bertone bodywork. This example was repainted in its factory Nocciola Metallic with black lower surfaces under previous ownership, and an area of the rear quarter panel was reportedly repaired at this time.
14” Cromodora wheels with yellow and black prancing horse center caps wear Yokohama ES100 tires that display date codes from 2004. The front trunk contains a tool kit and jack.
The interior is trimmed in beige cloth and leather. Equipment includes power windows, air conditioning, a heated rear window, and a gated shifter for the five-speed manual transaxle. An Alpine head unit has been added to the center console, and aftermarket speakers have also been installed.
Veglia instrumentation includes a 180-mph speedometer, a 10k-rpm tachometer, a quartz clock, and gauges monitoring oil pressure and water temperature. The five-digit odometer is believed to have rolled over twice and indicates 20k miles, approximately 3k of which were added under current ownership.
The 3.0L DOHC V8 produced 240 horsepower when new and is linked with a five-speed manual transaxle. MSD electronic ignition has been installed, and the engine was rebuilt approximately 9k miles ago in 2005 with new valves and guides, bearings, and piston rings. The carburetors were adjusted and the ignition system was serviced last year by the selling dealer, who states that the timing belts will be replaced for the next owner.
The front suspension was refreshed in 2006 with new wheel bearings, bushings, ball joints, and brake hoses. Additional photos of the underbody are provided in the gallery.
A copy of the window sticker lists the factory colors and equipment and displays a total price of $26,072. The car was featured in the May 2013 edition of Forza magazine as shown in the gallery, and an in-car driving video is presented below.
