Owned by automotive journalist Sam Barer (of "Sound Classics" and "Sam Barer's Four Wheel Drift" fame) this is Ferrari #61613 -- a 1986 328 GTS that came off the production line in December, 1985. According to Ferrari factory production records archive, it is the only 328 GTS built in American market specifications with color code 503/C Blu Medio Metallico (Medium Blue Metallic), and one of only seven Blu Medio Metallico 328 GTS cars built in total throughout the entire worldwide series production of 6068 units. The 328 series is generally considered the most reliable and easiest to maintain Ferrari ever, and this specific car's 86,500 miles back-up the conventional wisdom. Despite revving to nearly 8,000 rpms, its four-cam V8 engine is simple and well-proven. The engine was derived from the 240-hp 2926-cc unit with two valves per cylinder and four carburetors that debuted in the 1974 308 GT4. Over the course of 308 production it received fuel injection then an extra valve per cylinder. Finally the engine was enlarged to just under 3185 ccs for the 260-hp 328. Timing belt changes are done every four years or 30,000 miles, but are easier to perform than on any modern econobox. Forget the horror stories you've heard about dropping the engine for tune ups, or parts that cost as much as houses, the 328 GTS is simple, robust and benefits from a parts interchange list featuring low-buck cars like VW Scirocco...as well as great used parts suppliers.
