1981 Ferrari 308 GTB For Sale

I came across a classic European sports car for sale on Craigslist about a month ago. The car is a 1981 Ferrari with the license plate number 308 GTB. It is a dream car for speed enthusiasts and quite rare in the US. The Italian manufacturer Ferrari released it in 1981, and it is the successor of the Dino 246 GT/GTS. This 2-seater sports car has a V8 mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout designed by Pininfarina.

This 41-year-old car has only been driven 39800 miles since new, making it a remarkable example of the 308 GTB available on the market today. If you're looking for a chance to own one of the European dream cars, this is your opportunity to add it to your garage.

The whole top comes off of this ex-Dutch Military truck so you can drive it as a convertible in the summer. With the big sides, no windows, and all the looks you get while driving, this would also be a perfect truck to drive with your company's name on the side. Classic, tough, cool-looking truck with low miles; This one is unrestored, very complete, and very original. No windows have been cut into the top (although they certainly could be added). No seats have been added into the bed (although again, either jump seats or benches could be added). It is still the original NATO Green . You can't drive anywhere without getting waves, second looks, and thumbs up.

1981 Lancia Beta Zagato

1981 Lancia Beta Zagato

Here's we found the Italiano classic spyder car by Lancia built in 1981, it's a Lancia Beta (Type 828) two-door convertible called the Spyder (or Zagato in America). In brochures Lancia spelt the name with a "y" rather than an "i" possibly to differentiate the car from the Alfa Romeo Spider. The Spyder used the coupé's shorter wheelbase and featured a targa top roof panel, a roll-over bar and folding rear roof. The Spyder was designed by Pininfarina but actually built by Zagato.
