In 1989, an avid Ferrari fan and serial owner, placed an order with Nigel Mansell’s Emblem Cars for a Ferrari 328 GTS, specified as black with a tan interior. The car was delivered on 11th May 1989.
Due to the rapidly climbing car market the owner investigated realising a quick profit via the Sunday Times.
An agreement was soon reached to sell the the car for a vast premium with the car to be collected on the following Monday.
Unfortunately, that Monday became known as ‘Black Monday’, and the ensuing fall in the market resulted in the agreement being broken.
Refusing a lesser offer, the owner decided to wait for the market to return and the car was placed on a hydrolic lift within a heated garage. To complete the decommissioning process, chalk powder was placed on the rubbers and all fluids were removed, before the car was raised on axle stands and a car cover applied.
Some 25 years later, the car has now been removed from its resting place offering an investor or collector a seriously unique opportunity to own an immaculate and barely used Ferrari 328GTS.
This one-owner Ferrari’s oddometer shows a remarkable 556 miles, with all books, tools, jack, roof cover, sales brochure and original purchase invoice present.
With Ferrari Classiche possible and concours success easily accessible, this car can only be described as perfect.
The sale of this car will be accompanied by a hard-back book detailing its removal from storage and arrival in London.
Upon request, a PDF of the book can be emailed to any interested parties.
