Hi All
I was all set to buy a 1982 308 GTSi and the deal fell over but I have another in my sights and was hoping for some enlightenment before I transfer my hard earned $$$
The Vin is ZFFHA02C000038031 
I looked on the web and the only info i can find says that 02 should be a 308 GTB??? and 04 is a 308 GTS all the rest of the code stacks up...
Any thoughts?
CHEERS

You checked here right?

http://www.nwrfca.org/faq/vin.html

Yes, 02 should be a 308 GTBi, UK specification RHD. However......I have #38031 as a 308 GTSi first registered to a Glenn Marks in the UK on plates FKO 308Y.  Can you show me the link please?

Regards,

Carl.

there is an anomaly of the chassis numbering.

there is no individual identity for 308 GTSi... they are all grouped together as "02"s.

Other GTS are separate though.

Ummm, are you sure Filly, a GTBi should be xxx1 and the GTSi should be xxx2.  I humbly apologise for not making that clear above.

here's the cut and paste from that link you posted..

01 = 308 GT4 (ZDF)   20 = 328 GTS
01 = 308 GTBi (ZFF)   21 = 3.2 Mondial Coupe
02 = 308 GTBi   24 = 412 Automatic
03 = 308 GTB   25 = 412 5-Speed
04 = 308 GTS   26 = 3.2 Mondial Cabriolet
05 = 512 BB   27 = GTB Turbo
06 = 400i Automatic   32 = Mondial T Coupe
07 = 400i 5-Speed   33 = Mondial T Cabriolet
08 = Mondial 8   34 = F40
09 = 512BBi   35 = 348 B
10 = 208 Turbo (B)   36 = 348 S
11 = 208 Turbo (S)   40 = F512M
12 = 308 GTB Quattrovalvole   41 = F355 Berlinetta
13 = 308 GTS Quattrovalvole   42 = F355GTS
14 = Mondial Quattrovalvole Coupe   43 = 348 Spider
15 = Mondial Quattrovalvole Cabriolet   44 = 456 GT
16 = 288GTO   48 = F355 Spider
17 = Testarossa   49 = 550 Maranello
19 = 328 GTB


I don't see GTSi anywhere

it LOOKS like a simple typo on the website... and that 02 is indeed GTSi, based solely on the fact that there is 01 for one of the GTBi listings, and all the other B's come before the S's in the list.

BUT, that website puts itself out there as a reference ... and is clearly not right....

Gotta love the internets  :thumbsup:

Carl was wrong and it took a grease monkey to point both THAT out, and that a reference website is wrong too.

I think where the original confusion came in is the reference to 04 as being for a 308 GTS, well, it is, but a carburettor GTS only.

The two valve injection cars should be 01 for a GTB and 02 for a GTS.  My original reference to the 02 being for a GTB is incorrect.

Thanks all
The first 308 GTSi I was considering also had the 02 so I thought it had to be correct but the Vin ref on the web got me worried...
The plates Carl mention are still with the car but it now has another owner...and hopefully if all goes well I will be the new owner...just going through the deal right now and today I sent off the application for import approval....being built in 1981 should see it getting registered without too much fuss...
Got a quote for $933 UKP for R/O R/O southhampton to Melb...sounds like aa good price and I won't opt for insurance...too expensive and not much risk i'm told...
The adventure begins?
