  • turn/lights is a Jaeger like on Alfa 105 GTs, only one plastic end is different

  • what the hell of barn you have there?? i only find pigeon stools overhere!

  • Where is the new update? It feels almost like if I am part of your restoration. Can't wait to see the BB back in its former glory

    • It’s coming, I’m just waiting on one part to finish the video

  • What are the building next to the Ferrari?

  • My grandpa buy a 308 quattrovalvole from factory back in the day.. she was california blue ( pretty rare ). He sold it in 2015 to an scotish collector. Oh i forgot to say it but the car was in Switzerland (my country) and has 23’099km. ;)

  • Does anybody resto-mod these older Ferraris? Probs not the done thing but if I had the cash that is probably the route I would take. Cue the trolls...... 😂😅🤣

  • I have a friend with a 512 Boxer and a 246 Dino have been sitting in a garage since about 35 years. Look great but have mechanically been sitting.

  • imagine if someone reproducd all those panels in naked carbon fibre tho

  • We need some 911 updates!

  • finaly real ferrari... but oh f*** rh drive ...

  • Rust under glass.....

  • Hey Scott do you know the weight saving the fibreglass version has?

    • The fibreglass cars around around 300 lbs lighter than the steel cars.. that was the reason that they started getting more popular.. Ferrari Club racers wanted the light weight bodies.. unfortunately, that means that a lot got Turned into race cars and damaged,

  • Overtaking on a double continuous line... Nice car though

  • Is that a custom 1st gen. Camaro beside the car?

  • Great video, love seeing these. Too many adverts though.

  • Hi Sir, Please look for this Ferrari. senewss.info/slow/YtbUhpV0sMzTe6I/video

  • You gpt your Pininfarina and Scaglietti the wrong way round! Good video

  • Funny how @13:07min this guy is not using a piece of cloth as a mask. I was told by the Government, that any cloth you like is good enough to filter virus´s that are even as small as 150 nanometers.Hmmm...

  • great video and information mate! well done! thanks for sharing!

  • I'm Italian and the way you pronounce scaglietti hurts my ears... Look it up please! love your channel tho

  • Vetroresina in italian means vetro-glass ,resina-resin (fiberglass). The correct pronounce is vètrorèsina

  • Think the frame and body outrigger may need reviewing to check for rot.

  • I knew someone called Harry that owned one of these in the 80s in the Notts area, I noticed this one was service on Loughborough road. Be interested to know if this was his.

  • Worth watching this video just for the shot of the 246 Dino phoooars!!! When I win the lottery!!

  • What’s the story with the Camaro beside it?

  • and where is that beautiful road?

  • Very interesting, I never knew the early cars were glass, does anyone know the weight difference between the glass and steel cars, Was there a big difference in rigidity and handling?

  • Carrots are 'ere. Good name for a fruit and veg shop.

  • 7:40 Overtaking with double lines👎👎 That is so wrong and arrogant, and on an semitunneled alpine road with no room to make an emergency move. It makes me sick you show this behaviour. You lost me as a follower☹️👎👎

  • Thanks for sharing, on the down note I heard the early 308’s like this one have framing issues, lots of rust as we know..

  • I thought the Vetroresina had only 1 exhaustpipe? This one had 4?

  • Didn't get a Notification for this video?

  • Nice Peugeot!

  • In my opinion I never repainted this car. This is a history from the car.

  • 252kmh? What’s that in Mph 😊🇬🇧

  • My skin is itching just watching them sand that fiberglass.

  • “Lunch is for wimps” 😂 haven’t seen Wall Street in ages. Interesting project car to follow through the workshop👍.

  • Come on, Scott. Get the pronunciation of Scaglietti right! You drop the G and say 'scalietti'. It's all about the details.

  • That Ferrari garage is now the cooperative food store.

  • that road looks like the chase scene from quantum of solace

  • Great 👍

  • That tunnel part brought back memories of going through Mont Blanc in 74 in my Dads 73 V12 E type

  • What happened to the original owner? That caused it to be left in the barn for so long?

  • Great find,car and video😀🇳🇴 Love the sound👌

  • The first car poster on my bedroom wall was a 308GTB. And seeing these old classics still alive reminds me of how much I still love them. It's a subconscious thing I suppose. Great vid.

  • Love the Vetroresina video but please avoid the propaganda of Netflix.

  • Great find. Well done son.

  • Funny little note, that line down the side, that sort of C channel type thing, that was a molding line between the two halves of the car for the fiberglass, and theirs actually another one in canada, the cold war motors guy was working on getting it running for a customer, also look how inset the bumpers are at 1:30, like their non existent and I hope that's not a habit at 7:37, like I dont know what the laws are in that location, but here, double lines mean do not pass, and theirs no run off if that goes wrong. but still what happened that this well loved car got put away like this, did he buy an 87 Quatrovalve, as one of the funniest things I've heard is that actually, the latter quattro cars are better than the early fiber ones as the weight balance is better, and the cars are faster and more powerful. as both James May and Harry Metcalf had, and sold both of them, Harry bought the testarossa, and loves the hell out of it, even though it was down on half a bank with its worn distributor for the longest time, including when it was on the grand tour which means it didnt get a fair test of how it would have been when new and james well, he had an old overthink crisis and put the thing fully back to stock, including the 14 inch wheels, instead of the upgraded 15's which makes a hell of a difference in how well they drive apparently and then was like, well this cars not that good and I'm kinda bored with it like preversely, ferrari actually made the 308 better as time went on lol still though the other thing is, these cars, well, each one is different, maybe this one has more power than both their glass fiber cars, as per the nature of handbuilt cars. if it was me, honestly the icon for me is the targa model, so I'd have to go with your black beater that you bought from the set of the hidden over it and sell it for that, also from 1987 ish lol although I probably wouldnt say that after driving it lol or either really lol as this one, I gotta say gives off good vibes, weirdly just even looking at harry's and James I had the feeling they were both mingers, this one, evidently might be a good one. I mean look at that mileage, and its condition, 80K miles and it was kept up this well, someone REALLY loved this thing, and you dont love a piece of junk like that.

  • You still gotta pay tax on a stored car??? England fucking sucks

  • This thing was already a 10-year old, 70,000 mile Ferrari with a bad paint job when it was put away, 34 years ago. Let's just hope that that underneath the steel bits are in a better state than the one in Ian Tyrrell's workshop! (senewss.info/slow/g8e7haxpa8vIetA/video). They do have a reputation for hiding all sorts or ugliness.

  • I have an honest question about that VPN. When you shop parts in the US via VPN, how do you get them over to the UK? I think those additional offers didn't show up initially because the do not ship them, or how does this work? Apart from that, it is a stunning car. I would drive it, since I hate it when cars just sit around, flat-spotting their tyres.

    • @Ratarossa Ah, I see. Thanks for that!

    • good question. Generally i have found for example with ebay if you message the seller normally you can sort out shipping

  • Woah...i never knew they made 308 in fiberglass in the early years. Thats a real valuable gem

  • These things suffer rust far more than is commonly assumed....

  • I hope they at least put a fresh t belt on it before they started it?! And yeah after watching Tyrells Classic Workshop I hope it isn't going to collapse on the new owner!

  • I'm surprised at the amount of miles on it with no cracks in the fiberglass. That alone is amazing as with the old fiberglass Corvettes you have way more cracking and spidering on those bodies with far less mile examples than this. With the type of restoration the owner is doing it's obvious it's going to be enjoyed again maybe not as much miles on it but what he's chosen to do is the right redo.. not full restoration with that amount of miles.

  • Obviously, they have not checked out the under chassis which is probably hiding some really bad rust - as previously mentioned - re Ian Tyrrell

  • I’ll get myself a cup of coffee ☕️

  • Straight out of Charnwood - probably seen this at Graypauls.

  • WHAT DOES DOUBLE WHITE LINES MEAN ON THE ROADS?? MMM..

  • Nice to see you and the bodyshop guys being normal around one another, not a bloody face nappy in sight, lol!

  • Hi Scott, was that Lake Garda you were driving? It would be great to hear about your past road trips in these cars sometime. Thanks

  • I’ve read somewhere that older fiberglass actually absorb moisture. Should explain bubbling.

  • Overtaking on double lines. Perfectly acceptable in a classic Ferrari. Bring it.

  • Looks like a right shithole of a place. I wouldn’t leave my chainsaw there to be serviced 🤦‍♂️

  • Why do you think Ferraris of that era never really had good quality interiors or even good design. Gauges tucked away on the RHS of the steering column look like an afterthought and the column mounted signaling arms and so on are bits of bent wire and plastic. That juts leaves the God awful gear lever stick.

  • Forget the Rosso Corsa...do it in gloss black.

  • The one at Ian Tyrell's was good from afar but far from good! Lets hope this one was cared for and shows less rust beneath the surface. Both project will be great to see once completed.

  • What a great find! Didn’t know the first 308 were fiber glass. Awesome engine sound also, can’t you get that sound out of your own 308 with throttle bodies or something? I’m so looking forward to see the BBI finished too. Enjoying every video ;)

  • Love geeking out over the minute differences twixt the vet and the later cars, looking forward to the next one mate

  • I would drive ewrry Day at the week ind the summer time..store indsigelse ind the winter time and do normal maintenens to keep it going and going...🇩🇰👍😎

  • I know, I know. This is a Ferrari Channel and i love it but that Camaro at 10:31 has my eyes fixated to it. The wheels, wow! I'm not even a Camaro guy, smh.

  • i was 23 when this car was last on the road... i could do with a restoration too....

    • I think I’m suffering from some hidden, structural rust ‘n’ all.

  • Great vid! As an ‘83 QV 308 owner (approx same miles) I loved seeing this and would love a carb’d car. I can’t believe they started it with 34 year old timing belts! Gutsy! Looking forward to seeing the paint and refresh.

    • however the belts on my boxer having been outside for 13+ years felts fine

    • it proves the point, these engines are pretty solid. rubber belts though risky

  • Nice.

  • 👍👍 up to the first owner who wasn't shy driving it .

  • Please.ceramic coat the exhaust manifolds... 😇

  • I have absolutely NO idea why you remind me so much of Thomas Dolby...

    • @Joss Armitage ok, so I’m not crazy... (fun fact, typing this AS I’m listening to ‘commercial breakup’, lol)

    • I hadn’t thought of that but now you’ve said it, I can’t get it out of my head.

  • Owner watches Iain Tyrrell's video and calls garage to halt everything and reassess. That's my guess

    • Yep, all over but definitely the front frames

    • im going to check rust today

  • Were those Delloroto or Weber carbs?

  • Is this a workshop that rents it's space?

  • I’d do exactly what the owner is doing on this one. Frame and fiberglass spot repair, good repaint, make it beyond good but not a garage queen, it shouldn’t be nut & bolt resto. Love it.

  • I really hope they leave some if the Patina on the inside.

    • yes a sympathy cleanup I believe is pretty much all thats happening

  • One of the last few imported to uk in '77.does it have the lightweight spare wheel? Worth doing it right.Rosso Chiaro?

    • yes it does the slim 'dino' wheel

  • bellissima

  • They don't fool around at that garage!

  • No more 308s, show us the F40.

  • Man I would love to see someone Resto mod one of these and drop a modern Ferrari engine in it!

  • That’s no Fiero kit car. It’s beautiful!

  • Another channel had one of these in for refurbishing and almost everything under the fiberglass was rotted. Hopefully they checked out.

  • not trying to be offensive, but genuinely curious why are the fiberglass versions so much more desirable? is it cause they're early cars, or lighter, or rarer, or...? to me fiberglass always implies 'kit car', so not sure of the appeal. now, I do have a C3 Stingray, which of course is fiberglass but never available as a steel body, so am obviously not biased against fiberglass...no choice with corvettes. also, the paint on my corvette bubbled up the same as on this 308...was told it was the resin gassing off over the years...maybe, maybe not.

    • no offence taken mate. generally with ferrari's they become more collectable (with that more expensive) due to the lower production numbers

  • What a beauty. Id do exactly what the owner is doing and then drive it and enjoy it! thanks for sharing!

  • Uhh that’s about as rare as finding a Walmart receipt in a Walmart parking lot

  • Recently one of these fiberglass 308s was featured on Tyrrell's classic workshop. It was shocking how much structural rust the car had under the fiberglass body panels.

  • Ha! I watched Lost Boys on the weekend with the kids. We also watch the Never Ending Storey. I like that you divert from the regular show for this.

  • The year a was born

  • Nice car, amazing find . That one in the mountain road sounds like what Jack @Number 27 wants his 308 to sound, as his is a carburetted too.

  • Bonus being stored there. No high or low temps.

  • A terrific video, and a simply beautiful Ferrari.

  • Super interesting, loving these videos in between the progress on the bbi
