1987 Ferrari 328 GTS Targa
Offered here is a gorgeous 1987 Ferrari 328GTS finished in factory original Rossa Corsa over Beige leather interior. Powered by number’s matching 3.2L 32-valve V8 SOHC featuring Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection with Magneti Marelli electronic engine management system, it produces 270 horsepower. A fully synchromesh, gate-shifted 5-speed manual transmission propels this example though the gears. Features include power windows, power locks, air conditioning, fog lamps, removable targa roof, intermittent wipers, and CD audio system.
Our example comes with a wonderfully clean history, flawless CarFax, and service records dating back the past 16 years. The original body paint is in excellent condition and shows only light signs of use conducive to the mileage reading of 38,852. There are absolutely no signs of paintwork or overspray anywhere on the car, and the interior carpets and seat leathers appear completely original as well. A true testament to respectful ownership its entire life! Included with the car will be two sets or keys, original owner’s manual, original stamped service manual, factory Ferrari tool set, all tire changing equipment, and targa storage bag. Also included are service & ownership records back to 2001 organized in a binder. Based on these records provided, exceptional care was taken to ensure this Ferrari had the best upkeep possible. It sold new from Sports Car Exchange Inc based in Dearborn, MI on December 23rd, 1986 for Jane Young of Grosse Pointe Shores, MI as a Christmas gift. Servicing continued through Sports Car Exchange before moving to Continental Motors of Hinsdale, IL from 1987-1996. It has had consistent timing belts & tensioner replacements in 1996, 2007, 2011, and most recently in July 2016 at 38,141 miles. This summer 2016 service also included all new fuel injectors, new Sanden air conditioning conversion upgrade, and fresh engine fluids & filter. Other notable services include a rebuild water pump with new thermostat at 35,020 miles, new tires & front brake pads at 34,765 miles, and full 30K major interval service at 30,005 miles. Everything on the car is full working order, and it drives simply superb! It is performing at the peak of its intended design, and we invite all serious buyers to schedule an immediate appointment to review it in person. It is a real collector grade example for the astute Ferrari investor and enthusiast.
Replacing the 308GTB and GTS model in 1986, the newly revised Ferrari 328 quickly became the series collectors seek out today. Each distinguished individually as the Grand Touring Berlinetta (Coupe) and Grand Touring Spider (Targa). With refined body lines, color-keyed bumpers, fully updated interiors, and larger displacement engine, it truly became the driver’s Ferrari. Known for their reliability, and the absence of engine-out belt servicing, owners (then and now) also find the maintenance costs more palatable. Over the four year production, only 6,068 GTS examples would find their way to showrooms around the world making this quite limited by comparison to both the 308 models, and larger Testarossa, each having totals closer to 14,000 units. A well sorted Ferrari 328 is certainly one of the most entertaining, classic Ferrari’s to navigate around town or countryside, with very impressive performance stats for its era. Producing 0-60 times in the 5.5 second range, and top speeds recorded upwards of 165mph. Not too shabby at all, especially combined with body contours that still look absolutely fantastic 30 years later!
