Chassis no. ZFFXA20A7G0063611. Rosso Corsa over tan leather. 3185/270hp, 5-speed, Dunlop SP Sport tires, air conditioning, Momo steering wheel, Alpine cassette/Blaupunkt stereos.

Evaluation: Showing 64,025 miles and not represented with any recent service. Filthy engine bay, and the struts for the engine cover are dead. Decent paint with a few chips and a crack at the bottom of the right A-pillar and minor blistering on the right rear. Scuffed right rear wheel. Lightly worn and discolored seats and door panels. A used 328.

Bottom Line: This 328 was a $55,000 no-sale at Mecum Tulsa back in June and it doesn’t look any better than it did then. Its odometer also shows just 2 more miles, likely all from moving on and off transport trucks and puttering around auction venues. The offer in Tulsa was reasonable considering the condition and the uncertainty about service, and the bidders in Dallas were even more cautious. The seller got the hint and let it go, and while there’s no such thing as a cheap Ferrari when it comes time to pay for maintenance, the new owner here at least paid bottom-dollar for what hopefully turns out to be an easily sortable and rewarding 328.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
