For sale is my 1986 Ferrari Mondial 3.2. Red on tan leather. The car has about 21,500 original miles. I purchased
it a year ago from a noted collector in the Pittsburgh area. His personal mechanic maintained it very well, along
with the rest of his phenomenal collection. I have maintenance records from his years of ownership and mine. I love
the car, but I am selling it to make room for another Ferrari in my limited garage space.
Mechanicals. The car is mechanically excellent. The engine starts easily every time. It runs very strongly and revs
smoothly. Excellent compression (as tested last fall -- those are the photos with the spark leads detached. Note
how clean the engine is. That is its natural state. It does not use or leak oil.)
The transmission is perfect. It slots into all gears (including first-to-second) whether warm or cold. The belt
service is current and has had only a few thousand miles. The brakes are excellent. The suspension is good and not
squeaky. I am aware of no current mechanical issues.
Wheels and Tires. The car comes with two complete sets of wheels and tires -- the original metric set (for shows,
with factory original tires) and a second set (which I run on the car, with easier-to-source tires). Both are
Ferrari Mondial OEM wheels (the non-metrics are from a later year). The wheels are in excellent condition. If I
were to keep the car, I would consider replacing the daily-use tires in the spring.
Body. The body is in excellent condition. I believe the paint work is all original, and it is in fine condition.
There are two or three miniscule door dings on the sides of the body, visible on close inspection in bright light.
I assume these are from car doors in parking lots (all predate my ownership). There are some rock chips on the
front of the car. Otherwise, the paint is excellent. It is very beautiful and deep. There is no rust whatsoever.
There are no scratches.
Cabriolet Top. The top is in very good condition. No rips or wrinkles on the exterior, and the fabric is taut. It
opens and closes easily. The rear window is very slightly yellowed, but you can see through it easily. The inside
of the top has light wear at a few points where the beige fabric contacts the mechanical apparatus. It closes well.
I have the original cover for the top as well as an aftermarket leather top (both fit well, but the original covers
are very costly, so I do not use it). The rubber weather stripping between the front and rear windows (which are
designed to bend when the top goes up and down) are partially perished. They could use replacement.
Interior. The interior is in excellent condition, with no rips, tears, stains, or anything else. The leather has
almost no signs of wear. The carpet is very good.
Dash and Electrics. Everything works. All the buttons, lights, and signals work well. The windows go up and down
easily, although the rear windows are a bit slow and could do with re-lubrication. The air conditioning--a known
problem on these cars--works well in this vehicle. I have the CD player that came with the car (a Denon unit that
does not function). I replaced it recently with a nice Kenwood unit with Blue tooth, etc, which works well. The
radio antenna works well, although it makes some noise and could probably do with lubrication.
Accessories. I have the original leather binder with the original manual. I have both original sets of folding
keys. I have the original leather key fob that came with the car new (although it is not in perfect condition). I
have the original jack bag with all accessories (including the little canister with some original fuses and light
bulbs). I do not have the original tool roll. They can be sourced online.
