TV Starlet

The targa topped Ferrari 308 GTS was made famous on the Magnum P.I. television show. This is a stunning example in yellow. The Ferrari 308 GTS is a V8 mid-engine, 2-seater sports cars manufactured by Ferrari from 1975 to 1985. The 308 replaced the Dino 246 GT and GTS in 1975 and were updated as the 328 in 1985. There were 3,219 GTS examples made during the 1975–1980 production periods.

Restoration History

This 308 has just been completely repainted including freshly painted wheels with new tires. The interior upholstery and carpets, except the dash, has been completely replaced. This automobile has just received an engine out service including all belts, exhaust gaskets, water pump, valve adjust and freshly rebuilt carbs. The transmission is tight with a fresh clutch. Brake calipers have been rebuilt, and all fluids have been replaced. The car was recently found in a shop in Wyoming where it had sat disassembled for nearly 10 years. The reassembly and paint was completed in 2016.

Summary

This 308 GTS is ready for its new owner and would make a great addition to the concours lawn. Hagerty’s Jonathan Klinger writes, “Five years ago, you and I should have taken all of our liquid assets combined and purchased every 308 we could get our hands on to sell today.”
