The 3.2 variant of the Mondial debuted in 1985 and featured long list of improvements over the previous generation. Just 810 3.2 Cabriolets (convertibles)were built from 1985 through 1988. This is a classic Ferrari sports car with the following:Mid-engine 3.2 liter DOHC V8, 4 Valves per cylinder (quattrovolve), 5 Speed Manual Gearbox, Rack and Pinion Steering, Double Wishbone Independent Suspension, Ventilated Disc Brakes, Power Window, plus, its RED.
Like its cousin the 328, the Mondial 3.2 boasts a 4 valve per cylinder (quattrovolve) dual overhead cam V8 that was a descendant of Ferrari's 1980's Formula 1 cars. The 1988 Mondial 3.2 would be the final model year that retained the relatively low maintenance costs of the 308/328 drive allowing major service items like timing belt and clutch replacement to be performed with the engine/transmission package still in the car. This version is rated at 270hp.
This car was produced in the last half year of 1988. The exterior looks amazing. It is painted in brilliant Rosso Corsa with a beige interior - a classic Ferrari combination. There are no significant dents or dings, and the top is in very good condition. Alloy wheels with the prancing horse logo finish off the exterior look. Inside, the car is also remarkable. The seats have no holes or tears, and the interior in general looks very good.
This car has just 21,903 original miles on it, and the Carfax report shows accurate miles and no accident history. Creature comforts include power windows, air conditioning and an Alpine AM/FM/Cassette stereo. The original manual, and Ferrari tool kit is included. This is an nice Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet that looks fantastic, and it runs great. A great conversation piece at car shows, a head-turner on the street, and just plain fun. A tough combination to beat. Please look at all of the photos included, and feel free to email with any questions you may have.
A few other facts about this car. It is the only Ferrari convertible every made that has a back seat (albeit very small). 1988 was the last year that Ferrari was fully owned by the name sake family. In 1989 Fiat bought out a controlling share in the company.
I just had the car in to a qualified repair shop for a new fuel pump and went ahead and completed the major maintenance on the vehicle and replaced several other wear parts that needed to be done on a 32 year old car. I ended up spending $10,000 but the car is in very good shape now to buy. Here is a list of the work that was done. I will furnish the records with the car.

He told me the car engine is in excellent condition.
In addition to all of this in the last year I installed a new Interstate battery, a new starter, and a new Muffler that cost $2,000. So, I have put $13,000 in new parts and the major maintenance in the last year. It is ready to go with all of these repairs.
Serious interested buyers please call, evenings during the week are best, my phone is 715-309-9425. Payment funds will need to clear into my bank before I can release the car, of course. Please check out all of the pictures and thank you for looking.
