Prefer Red/Tan but will consider Yellow/Black.

Med to high miles OK. Something with some service records, tools, books. (yes, I know you found one for me JRV, try not to rub it in ;)

Service does not have to be 100% up to date but would like to see that the car has been cared for.

Thanks

Sean, why a '77? I have a

Sean, why a '77? I have a '78 GTB (although its not for sale) and I was just wondering if there was some difference in the cars that makes you want a '77 as opposed to a '76 or a '78.

I'd be interested, too, if anyone out there has a car fitting this description for sale. Sean, you can have first crack at it; let me know if there are any you decide to pass on. For me, color isn't really an issue.

Well, if we are talking North

Well, if we are talking North American 308's, the 76-77 cars make more hp. 240hp versus 205hp for the 78-79 cars. I have seen the dyno numbers from cars at our club "dyno day" and seem to support those figures...btw, I had a 78 308 GTS, still a great car, if down on power. Mine made a corrected 214hp at the crank, but quite a few mods...no cats, disconnected air pump, K&N, rejetted carbs from 125 mains to 140 mains, crane cams ignition, and NGK EVX plugs. Spent a bunch of time on the dyno to get the jetting right.

'77 b/c of what Dave said.

'77 b/c of what Dave said. It's bad enough these things only have 240HP. Going down another 35HP is not what I want.

Yes, I know it's a Ferrari regardless of the year, but if I'm going to spend close to $30,000 on a car that is 25yr old, then I want what I want.

This is why I asked about the Turbo Esprit. For the price, you get TONS more performance...but then, it's not a Ferrari and I'm a Ferrari guy. My best friend and wife both agree'd I cannot buy a Lotus. It's a 308 or nothing.

JRV I like the looks of the 32

JRV I like the looks of the 328 but I like my carbs better on my 77B.I just turned 45k and did the 30k tune up again (was done at 32k but was 3 years ago) and car is in great shape but not perfect.

Pretty good price. Just needs a little love to make it right, that's all.
