This original right hand drive example, with factory air conditioning, was delivered new in March 1978 in Hong Kong by Italian Motors to Mr Wilson Y T Loke. Information supplied by the vendor is that it would appear that the owner took the car to California and then was sent by that family to New Zealand in May 1996. Thus it appears that the car was in the ownership of one family until then and the extensive service records tend to confirm this.
The 308 was in storage for many years in New Zealand and since being acquired by the vendor has had attention to the brakes and wiring, together with cam belts and a major service.
Auctioned by Sotheby's Australia, 9 Male Street, Brighton, on 18/4/2010. Vehicle in excellent condition and was available to view in Auckland where it remained for the auction. Estimate AUD$95,000-$105,000
