History Part 1

Custom Front

As I wrote about earlier the car came with a “baby book” including all records and repairs.  The car was purchased in January of 1980 from Ferrari of San Diego and was delivered in March of 1980.  At 11,000 miles the car was sold through Ferrari of La Jolla.  The second owner added the front spoiler to make the car look like a Euro version.  He also installed the rear spoiler, which was a factory option.  The engine was given new cams and re-jetted to european specs.  The suspension was also stiffened.  A custom Alpine stereo was installed, and a Harris Alfa-Telephone (which is still in the car) was added.  The phone at that time cost $3450!  All work was done at Bobileff Motorcar Company in San Diego.  At 23,000 miles the car was sold to the service manager of Ferrari of La Jolla.  The car was reworked and toured at track events with the local Ferrari Club.  During this time the car received the fastest car of the day at Riverside Raceway during one event.  Everything on the car is original except the grill, bumper, rear spoiler, and the wheels.  There were approximately six other cars in the La Jolla area that were customized in a similar manner.  In 1986 with 37,565 miles on the car it was sold to Grand Prix Classics.
