Description

This 308 GTB is one of the first samples produced by Ferrari in February 1976, sold new in Turin.
The Ferrari 308 GTB was presented at Paris auto Show in October 1975 with dry sump engine and fiberglass body: it was the first model by Ferrari with the composite body and just 712 samples were built, currently the most appreciated; in 1978 the factory moved to the more common steel body. There are two truths regarding the choice of the fiberglass body: officially it was used to save weight for motorsport activities, but someone dares a delay of the dies for the steel body so, to save time, Ferrari started a temporary production with the composite.
The dry sump engine was mounted just on the the first hundred Euro-specs cars, probably because the car was conceived and designed for motorsport, thanks also to the lightweight body.

This 308 was purchased by the current owner in 1984 and since then it ran for few kilometers: currently the odometer marks 50.500 kms. One of the most interesting topics of this sample (it should be the 60th chassis built) is the original colour: Blu Scuro Dino (dark blue); it is a solid paint, mainly used for the Dino model, rarely chosen for the 8 cylinder designed by Leonardo Fioravanti.
As usual in those years, it was resprayed in red and upgraded as a 308 Quattrovalvole (using the spoiler, the exhaust and other details) before being bought by the current owner, who never knew that the colour wasn’t original.
After many years into a garage, the car had been fully serviced, with new liquids, new distribution chain and other parts which should be restored just outside in the aesthetic.

Among the listed cars of the 308 Fiberglass register, there is just one car older than this one, which is, for sure one of the most valuable, rare and interesting 308.
The photos of the 308 Dark Blue Dino – kindly sent by 308-328 register – are just a sample, to show the colour of the car offered for sale.
