1978 Ferrari 308GT4

The 308GT4 was a break from tradition for Ferrari. Not only was this the first mid-engined, V8 Ferrari, but the company employed Bertone instead of Pininfarina to handle the styling of this four seater sports car. The wedge shape would permeate throughout the Ferrari lineup for the next two decades. This 308GT4 is for sale in California at no reserve and offers enthusiasts the chance to get into an eight cylinder Ferrari for entry level luxury sedan money.

You average 308GT4 in good condition should run between $25,000 to $35,000. Given the bidding, I'd suspect final bidding will hover somewhere around $30,000. Even though the mileage can't be verified, it looks the part for a well kept, low mileage car. With the maintenance performed, it should help assuage some fears of impending doom, although an inspection prior to purchase with any vintage Ferrari would be a must.
