Classic Car Overview
1990 Ferrari Mondial T. California car, I am the second owner. Extensive records available. This Ferrari began it's life as the daily driver of the Newport beach comptroller back in 1990. Driven lightly around Newport beach until the late 90's it was then put into storage until 2009. I purchased it then, and went thru the vehicle from top to bottom at that point. It's been a fantastic vehicle - excellent driving dynamics and demeanor, comfortable, and unmistakably Ferrari. As Ferrari's go it is very approachable for maintenance. There are very few parts that are unobtainable - most of those are body trim pieces, and on this example all are in excellent shape. As Mondail's go - you want a T - and you want a T that is 1990 or newer... To explain: The "T" shares nearly exactly the same powertrain as the 348, giving lots more options for spares. Of this era Ferrari, the parts bin was shared with Fiat and engine controls are generic Bosh - giving countless cross references for many critical engine parts. 1990 is critical (or an earlier that has a well-documented fix) as this engine was Ferrari's first foray into the transverse mounted v8 engine - which continued on for generations of the 8 cylinder vehicles. One notable feature of these engines is a belt-driven cam that has an exceptional belt length. Early models used an inferior roller bearing on the cam pulleys, and these bearings would often fail well below specified maintenance intervals - potentially taking the entire engine with them as they failed, shredded the cam belt and the pistons impacted the valves... This was largely corrected in later models. Another thing to watch for in vehicles of this era is modern ethanol completely melts 90's era rubber parts - the only fix is to strip the systems down entirely, and replace with modern ethanol-compatible rubber seals, dampeners,and other bits. This example is fresh off a complete rebuild of its fuel, ignition and hydraulic systems. Included with the car are the original tool kit, leather-bound manual, original "window sticker", original leather convertible boot, and a new black cloth boot I had custom-made.
