New oil hoses costing $1,052.84 were installed in November 2011, while work undertaken during 2012 encompassed: new water pump and cambelt tensioner bearings; a new hose between the fuel tanks, new Koni shock absorbers all round, fresh rear anti-roll bar bushings, replacement front ball joints (x4) plus a new Sanden 508 air-conditioning compressor (one of the associated bills totals $6,661.90 and quotes a recorded mileage of 55,638).
Benefiting from a new distributor oil seal and refurbished alternator in 2013, 2014 saw the 308 gain new stainless steel brake lines, fresh brake pads and overhauled brake callipers all round (the corroborating invoice totals $3,479.21 and lists the indicated mileage as 59,995). The last American bill on file is for two new Bridgestone tyres and a four-wheel alignment. Purchased from America by the vendor in 2016, the two-seater was UK road registered as ‘B762 HFE’ the following year. Interestingly, the V5C Registration Document gives the date of first registration as 01/01/1985 (January 1st is often chosen when an imported vehicle’s exact first date of registration is unclear). Regularly MOT tested during the current ownership but sparingly driven, the Ferrari’s odometer now shows some 61,800 miles.
