Bonhams Greenwich 2014 – Auction Report

Not a very good example, yet still got some good cash for a very questionable service history…

Lot # 315 1985 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet, Body by Pininfarina; S/N ZFFUC15A4F0057179; Rosso Corsa/Tan leather; Black cloth top; Estimate $22,000 – $28,000; Unrestored original, 3- condition; Hammered Sold at $22,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $24,200. No Reserve – 3185/266hp, 5-speed, Michelin tires, Kenwood radio. – Good paint with some dings around the doors. Worn interior. Bad weather stripping. Top frame and wheels are scratched up. Tires are on their way out. Radio antenna is so bent it looks like it’s about to snap off. Showing just 46,236, probably actual, miles, less than its presentation would suggest. A bad example of a car that was pretty to begin with. – Surprisingly unloved for a car that is so practical, but without evidence of a recent service and qualified by the frightening statement it’s been ‘driven only about 3,000 miles in the last 22 years’ there is much that is uncertain about this Mondial 3.2 and the seller should be extremely happy to get this much for it.
