Good carb'd GTB's are

Good carb'd GTB's are going for $22k-$25k right now (asking $25-$28). Euro's are worth a little more b/c of the dry sump/power and lack of emmisions.

Why, got one to sell? If so please e-mail me.

I don't believe they made

I don't believe they made a glass 77. I think 76 was the last year but I may be wrong.

if it is true.

25 for a standard 77 gtb
+5 for a euro
+10 for a glass
+ 5 for condition

45K is fair. IF it's true.

From what your saying he's

From what your saying he's in the ballpark on pricing. I just have to find out if they made a Euro fiberglass car in 77.

I found some more info

I found some more info

There were 712 made between 1975 and 1977. 100 US version GTBs were made in mid 1976. The fiberglass bodies (glass-reinforced plastic - Vetroresina) were extremely well made and have held up well over the years. The front bonnet is aluminum and the rocker panels are steel.

The US version GTBs are wet sump with two distributors. The rest have dry sump engines with single distributors. All are, of course, non-catalyst carburetted cars. The US version cars have two air pumps.

A good source of information on the Fiberglass GTBs is the Ferrari Market Letter. They have two reprint articles available on the Fiberglass 308 GTBs.

A red/tan glass EURO '76 G

A red/tan glass EURO '76 GTB with ~50,000 miles on it sold recently for ~$35,000 (at Steve Harris Imports I believe) so +$15k seems a bit high for 20,000 miles. Be sure those miles can be documented.

Sean,

I think 35k for a 50


Sean,

I think 35k for a 50k milage car is steep. If the car is in the condition of being concourse with 20k miles, I think an offer of 43-45k is more then fair.

The plus of a glass car is no rust on the doors.

Hi,

I have been in the 76/7


Hi,

I have been in the 76/77 GTB market for two years - finally found the one. In my area (Connecticut/NY/Mass) EVERY one I have seen that SOLD for $27K-$28K needed some sorting out mechanically, not in the best cosmetic shape, modified, missing books, history etc. These buyers wound up putting another $2K-$3K into them. Concours, low-mileage cars were selling between $34K - &35K.

Mine is an honest-to-goodness all original (except paint), intact example. I paid a little more for it because mechanically is was completely gone through (carbs, ignition, belts, hoses, brakes, etc), rare color, rare interior (no radio installed)and met my expectations in this way. The paint is by no means show paint, but it looks great. Because there are few good early GTB examples out there, I have found there is always a trade-off.

Sean, Gary if you have not already, visit Peter Sweeney's site at www.forza.weblobby.com

Peter usually gets in carbed GTBs and has a black one right now.

That is the problem with loo

That is the problem with looking for these cars. There are good and bad, and they all ask the same price. I've seen good and bad cars sell for between $22k and $28k. Some needed work, others didn't.

I've been to Peter's site and I check it regularly. He seems to get a lot of GTB's and has three nice GTS QV cars right now.

Agree with Sean and Anthony, w

Agree with Sean and Anthony, when it comes to 308's there is a lot of CRAP out there...and yet owners still ask for top dollar. If the car is what the owner claims, it is probably worth low 40's, but you would need to be able to verify it's originality and condition very carefully, and get a knowledgeable person to look over the car. Regardless, this is big bucks for a 308, and you want to make sure you are getting what you are paying for. Me? I would have a F-club expert look it over, then have a body shop guy inspect it...if all looks good, then have the PPI done. You'll end up spending $500 to $600 to do all that, but worth it to me.
