1977 Ferrari 308 GTB

Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975, the Ferrari 308 GTB and targa roofed GTS was a replacement for the Dino 246. A departure from the more curvaceous Ferraris of the 1960s, the 308 was also a technical leap forward, with a four wheel double wishbone suspension, dry sump engine lubrication and, in the case of our feature car, a fiberglass body. Two years after its introduction in 1977, Ferrari eventually switched over to a steel body, after building 712 fiberglass examples. This fiberglass GTB for sale in Connecticut is noteworthy in that it is painted the same hue as the car that first debuted in Paris almost 40 years ago.

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB

1977 Ferrari 308 GTB Fiberlgass drysump Blue with a black interior. 15,000 miles. Very nice and clean example of the most desirable of the Ferrari 308 Series cars. Car has a very good service history starting from about 1986 to the present time. The motor was rebuilt in the early 2000's and a major service was just performed on the car last year. The mileage is more than the odometer indicates, probably around 30,000 miles. The car runs very well and is very fast. The car is located in northwestern Connecticut about 75 miles north of New York City in the Northwestern corner of Connecticut. If you have questions you can contact me thru ebay or call 860-350-1140. I have a web page with many additional photos of the car forzamotorsports with the usual com ending. International buyers welcome.

At the high end, one could expect to pay $30,000 to $40,000 or so for a well preserved steel bodied 308 GTB. With the rarity factor of the fiberglass body and dry sump engine, one might expect to pay an additional $10,000 to $15,000. With the low mileage and significant color of this particular car, we may be looking at a $60,000 to $70,000 GTB. Anything more would be a bit ahead of the current market.

  1. Not resale red, but striking nonetheless…!!

    Have to question the service, as the pleated air intake boot looks cracked at the base…?

    Questionable mileage and having motor rebuilt at such a low mileage is a turn-off…lucky to get mid 30’s…

  2. Reserve not met, high bid was $65,100.

    Cavalino lists the current market price for this car from a low of $40k to a high of $65k. Car is still listed for sale on the dealer’s website, with the price “POA”. Wonder what the reserve is.
