Chassis No. F106AB20795. Blu Sera over beige and black leather. 2927-cc, 255-hp, V-8. 5-speed manual. Four Weber carburetors, Campagnolo wheels, Michelin XWX tires, Momo leather-wrapped steering wheel, original Larsen stereo, power windows, and air conditioning.

Evaluation: Visually maintained, largely original | Showing 80,760 believable kilometers (50,182 miles). Just three owners, the last of whom has owned the car for 33 years. Major suspension service in 2017 and consistently maintained, but otherwise original. Partly original paint is faded and chipped. The roof and engine cover have mild cracks. Slightly dirty engine bay. Decent original interior. Flatness and wrinkling on the driver’s seat as well as some wear on the outer bolster. Some chips and dings on the wheels. Inherently desirable given its early build date, Vetroresina (fiberglass) bodywork, and generally presentable condition, but it’s a tired car by Ferrari standards.

Bottom Line: Ferrari’s first fiberglass production car, the 308 Vetroresina is far and away the most valuable member of the 308 family, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars more than a nearly identical steel-bodied car. Thus, an amount of money that would buy the nicest carbureted, steel 308 GTB in the world is a perfectly reasonable number for a rough driver when the body is glass, as was the case in Paris.
