1976 Ferrari 308 GTB Vetroresina

The 308 GTB offered here has the lighter fiberglass (Vetroresina) bodywork and dry-sump lubrication of the very first 308 GTBs produced. Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 308 GTB marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed Dino 308 GT4. Produced initially with dry-sump lubrication and fiberglass bodywork — the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari — the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB was built in steel after April 1977. The change brought with it a considerable weight penalty and reduction in performance. Naturally, anyone wanting to race a 308 GTB started out with the Vetroresina version if they could.

One of only 712 Vetroresina 308 GTBs produced, chassis number 19755 was restored in 2005. The car has been expertly maintained by a renowned Italian Ferrari specialist. It was repainted four years ago. The car is described by the vendor as being in generally excellent condition and offered with sundry restoration invoices. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a restored example of this most desirable version of the iconic 308 GTB.
