This example was first owned by legendary Ferrari dealer and racer Philippe Lancksweert, who was part owner of the Francorchamps dealership in Brussels, being registered on the 17th October 1986. By 1997 Very Superior Old Cars of the Netherlands had sold it to a Mr de Vos, receipts on file show he had a major service including the steering rack at a cost of Fl 4,059. In 1999 they sold it to Mr Davis who receipts show had the wheel bearings replaced and again to our vendor in 2000 when he was working in Holland. There are Dutch equivalent MOT certificates on file from 2001 - 2008. Works undertaken when he lived out there include in 2001 a Kenwood CD, with amp and a Class 3 alarm fitted at a cost of Euro 2,486, in 2004 new ECU from Kroymans Ferrari Euro 1,100 and 2007 Trentside of North Lincolnshire removed the engine, fitted a new clutch, inc pressure plates and bearing, new cam oil seals, new timing belts, £3,700.
When he moved to the UK in 2010, he brought it with him, fitting a new speedo, (the old reading 117,047KM), a new alarm, new headlights and underseal at the same time, costing £926. MOT and service history follows by Lowfield Garage of Malton from that time, the most recent MOT in February 2022 at 2,675 miles.
In 2013 Malton Coachworks undertook welding to nearside sill and painted the front of the car for £1,450, in 2014 a re-cored radiator and new coolant bottle amongst other parts were fitted for £1,160, in 2015 new Pirelli P7’s were fitted and in 2019 second hand door catches were replaced (£789 for the pair) and the doors adjusted for £427 at Malton coachworks.
The car has had little use over the last six years, although always MOTed and serviced, due to an eyesight condition meaning our vendor can no longer drive and he is now, reluctantly, allowing this 328 GTB to be looked after by another custodian.
Sold with the V5C, comprehensive history folder as mentioned above, Ferrari handbook holder, original owners’ card, and bespoke garage soft cover, Spicer's can recommend this 328, a car that has known history back to 1997, been owned by our vendor since 2000 and has been enjoyed as it was designed to be and not left in a garage as an investment. We would recommend that the next custodian has the timing belts changed due to the time period since they were last changed as a precaution.
