According to my records I have

According to my records I have the original engine and transaxle in my '78 308 GTS.

I have searched archives on Heritage Certificates but have found nothing that explains EXACTLY what information is required in the 'Engine TYPE' and 'Transmission TYPE' blanks.I provided the correct serial numbers in the 'other' blanks but when filling out the 'Type' blanks I get a statement '.............engine type does not match internal data transmission type does not match internal data'.

Any suggestions?
Thank you, DJ

Hi Jay,

Hi Jay,
Peter R (75 308 GT4) suggested the "F106A 040" but it didn't work.
I'm hoping one of the GTS/B guys has had the experience. I'm thinking the series number may be different for mine.

Thanks, DJ

I was considering one of these certificates. Did you get it through the Owner's website? What is the cost?

According to the owners site t

According to the owners site the Heritage Certificates are free. According to another thread, Ferrari also has a new certification program that requires much more extensive proof of authenticity, similar to what is required to obtain a build sheet on the older cars, for a fee of around 500.00.

I just found the above information and don't know if the 'new improved' Certificate actually exists but if there is money to be made from it then the odds are..................

Here is an excerpt from the ot

Here is an excerpt from the other discussion;

"I got both the Heritage Certificate and buildsheets for my 1964 330 thru the Ferrari Owner's site. You have to prove legal ownership first, then go thru their procedure, which involves proving to Ferrari that the car you own is the same car described in the buildsheets and that all major components are those originally installed. It has to be a "numbers matching" car. I'm sure that the buildsheets are available to the owner of any Ferrari for which they exist - I have no idea of the manufacture date or s/n after which they are not available, or if such a restriction exists.

The Heritage Certificate is just a nice looking Certificate of Authenticity of sorts - Ferrari has a new certification program that requires much more extensive proof of authenticity and payment of around $500.00.
I think the purpose is to raise the bar or provide a standard for competitive show events.
On the positive side, I think they will issue the new certificate for cars that have non-original major components such as engine, trans, diff, etc., whereas the car must be numbers-matching for the buildsheet/Heritage Cert. program.

My buildsheets are emailed facsimiles and are in pretty poor condition-about half of the printing is illegible. I don't know how common this is-
I have seen others in better shape than mine."

After writing a letter to cust

After writing a letter to customer service I received a reply informing me that they do indeed have a Heritage Certificate for my 308 and to resend the information, my user name and password that I use on the owners site. They will contact me soon..................

That's encouraging.

It actually looks really nice.

It actually looks really nice. They send a pdf file to you that you can print out on your computer. It also includes the date of manufacture and interior/exterior color. It looks nice framed in my office.

I was notified by Email today

I was notified by Email today from customer service in Maranello instructing me to go to the owners site and I would be able to download the heritage certificate for my car.

After I signed in I went to the L/H sidebar menu and clicked on Historic Document Archive.

After the next page loaded I went to the content index on the right and clicked on Heritage Certificate.

This last page is the submission form normally used to apply for a certificate. Customer service instructed me to scroll down to the yellow box on the right and there was my car listed in the box as "308 GTS(XXXX)-26581".I clicked on the box and a PDF version of the certificate came up. I saved it to my :C drive, Documents and printed a copy.

In order for your car to appear in the yellow box, customer service MUST have your user name and password for the site. Be sure to include the ENTIRE engine number, the first half is type and the last is the serial.

The information on the document covers as follows;

Modello
308 GTS (XXXX)

Nr. Matricola
26581

Motore tipo
F106AE

Colore esterno carozzeria
Giallo Fly 20-Y-490

Colore interni
Pella Nera VM 8500

Data di fabbricazione
28/11/78

There is a certificate number at the top and other Italian looking "stuff".

Good luck everyone!

One surprising aspect though,

One surprising aspect though, the serial numbers of the engine and transaxle were not used on the certificate. I guess additional proof of ownership is required and the 500.00 fee mentioned previously.
