Ah, but alas, this is not one of the scores of 355s I've photographed.  And the rego isn't familiar.  It's looks like it's not a garage queen, so maybe it's a northern/western suburbs car?

175K?

Top end of the market for a 355.

Need to check if targa top leaks (probably will, my 348 was a sieve), whether the headers/valves have been done, whether the ABS light stays on when it shouldn't, whether you get a warning light from the rear shock actuators, whether the warning lights are actually even plugged in, whether the undertray is in good shape or cracked to poop, whether the flying buttresses have small cracks on the join points with the body, whether the almost unobtainium driving/fog lights are working right, whether the headlights work well enough to see by in the evenings ... gasp.

Those are the most regular 355 pains in the bottom. I'd buy the import 360 convertible for the money instead.
C'mon, do it!

If your looking at it because you absolutely love this model, make sure it is in perfect condition for that kind of money Because there are examples of 360's that are going cheaper than that with less milage, a good 5 years younger. and whos to say that this car is in better condition because the price is higher, used cars don't always work like that. Get it inspected for starters, got my 360 (getting) it inspected and its only $400-$500, well worth the price of minimising the risk of buying a dudd (even though ferrari stuffed up my original report.

All depends on what your looking for but for that money it should be one of the best of its kind in the country. Also is it me or is the paint fading pretty bad in the pics????

Good luck on your quest, i'm nearing the end of mine. Keep us updated
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!
