Introduced at the 1975 Paris Motor Show, the mid-engined, two-seater Ferrari 308 GTB was offered as a more exotic alternative to the concurrently produced 2+2 308 GT4. Employing a 2.9-liter DOHC V-8, synchromesh five-speed transaxle, independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, bodywork was fabricated from fiberglass - vetroresina in Italian - until June 1977 when construction was switched to heavier steel.
This 1976 Ferrari 308 GTB is one of 712 Vetroresina models built and one of 100 specified for the US. Finished in Rosso Chiaro (Light Red) over Pelle Beige (Beige Skin) leather, it was dispatched by the factory to Bill Harrah's famed Modern Classic Motors of Reno, Nevada, in September 1976. In February 2015, the car was acquired by Houston-based collector Michael Green and sent to award-winning Motion Products Inc. of Neenah, Wisconsin, for a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration to a high standard. Completed in late 2016 with receipts on file of over $221,000, less than 1,000 miles have been accumulated since.
Accompanied by books, tools, jack, emergency accessories, and documentation, this 308 GTB obtained prestigious Ferrari Classiche certification in August 2018 authenticating it as a matching-numbers example retaining its original engine and transaxle. Quite likely the finest example available, this rare and sought-after 308 GTB Vetroresina is still eminently capable of providing the sporty road performance that made the model so popular in period.
