Cleaning and Ebaying

IMG_5760We cleaned out the attic over the holiday and discovered a number of items that we’ll be putting on eBay in the coming weeks. Currently listed are a Bosch Voltage Regulator (black box BOSCH) 6v 12v volt for returning your classic back to the original configuration – or just the look.

Ferrari Bonaldi Brake Booster for rebuild will only stop you in your tracks in it’s current condition – not working – but in very nice cosmetic shape.

A rare Ferrari 275 GTB and GTB/4 Egg-Crate Grille Brandoli reproduction isn’t easy to come by and is in good condition.

Marchall 660 Fog Lights for Ferrari 250, 225, 212, 166 will actually look at home on a variety of other cars including Porsche 356, Mercedes 300, etc.

1986 Ferrari Mondial – Rosso Prugna

100305_mondial_3136The Ferrari Mondial was produced from 1980 to 1993 and superseded the 308. The 2+2 was introduced as a car suitable for daily driving, built on a steel frame, and adorned with a Pininfarina designed and Scaglietti produced body. Nearly 7,000 of these cars were produced in a number of variations.  The Mondial 3.2 is the last variation to share the transverse engine and transmission of the 308 before it. After the Mondial 3.2, Ferrari changed the “Mondial t” engine mounting to longitudinal though the transmission remained transverse.

The car is positioned here on the slab in front of the shop for a quick wash on a warm spring day. Snow banks remain in the background. The deep maroon body of the Mondial hints slightly at purple – and though unique, the color is factory original Rosso Prugna. Inside the car is an incredibly clean interior, with full books, tools, and records. The sunroof and air conditioning work as well. This 1986 Mondial is a very drivable Ferrari, with 43,000 miles on the clock, with the stunning looks of a car with only ten or thirteen thousand.
