Stunning 1980 Ferrari 512 BB: Iconic Carbureted 512 in Fully Restored Condition
This 1980 Ferrari 512 BB is a beautiful fully restored example and an incredibly desirable carbureted model. Combining powerful performance and exotic styling, the carbureted 512 Berlinetta Boxer was built in a modest quantity of 929 examples from 1976 through 1981. This remarkable car, chassis 34351, is offered out of 26 year storage. According to the accompanying Marcel Massini History Report, this BB was originally finished in Rosso Chiaro (Red) and upholstered with Nero (Black) leather, and the car notably retains this original color scheme today. Specified with instruments in kilometers, the 512 completed assembly in November 1980, and after being sold new a month later to a European enthusiast in Austria, the car was soon exported to the US. By 1993, the Ferrari had been acquired in a restored state by marque collector Todd Morici of West Paterson, New Jersey. That year, Mr. Morici advertised the 512 BB in Ferrari Market Letter as having 250 miles since a complete nut-and-bolt restoration by Classic Coach on a 17,000-mile car. The motor had also been rebuilt. It has been noted that the internal number stamping on the engine appears incorrect. Furthermore, it does not have the original engine but the exact same type was installed. The car runs and drives but will need a service and tune up. Mechanical attention is required before road use. Now showing just 288 miles since the restoration, the car is cosmetically stunning inside and out with excellent paint and super clean interior. Extremely collectible Carbureted 512 BB. Not to be missed by any enthusiast of the marque.
