The 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB was the first generation of 308 Ferrari models that were popular and prevalent from the middle of the 1970s to the middle of the 1980s. The Ferrari 308 GTB boasted a 3 liter V8 engine, located in the middle of the car and featured a rear wheel drive layout. Just like many of its predecessors, the 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB was designed by Pininfarina, who made a grand tourer 2-door fastback coupe to adequately complete the Ferrari range. The design of the 308 GTB was praised for its subtle elegance, reminiscent of the Dino 246 GT that was so popular. Built on a tubular steel frame and equipped with carburetors, the car was capable of 250 hp. Later models had to let the carburetion go in favor of fuel injection to obey regulations, which reduced the horsepower significantly. Ferrari was good at offering many customization options for their customers and giving them multiple options to choose from. In addition, some examples have received many modifications throughout the years, so be sure to give a fully detailed description of your example when putting it up for sale.


1979 Ferrari 308 GTB Seller’s Guide

The Ferrari 308 GTB was significant as the first model non-equipped with the impressive V12 to use the Ferrari name. The Dino moniker was in fact dropped in 1976 and all models made by the brand were adorned by Ferrari logos. Nowadays, it can create confusion with the models but the first generations of Ferrari 308 GTB have the same features and were built by the same teams. If you’re thinking about selling your example, one of the best seller’s tips the Alex Manos team will give you is to gather as much documentation as you can regarding the car’s history of ownership, repair and maintenance, and any restoration that has been done. Not only will this attract the attention of buyers but can help them make a decision to move forward quicker.
