BUY­ING TIPS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Five Best Ferrari Buys -

Elec­tri­cal grem­lins are par for the course with 1980s Ital­ian cars. The Mondial has a weak fuse­box, where cir­cuit board de­lam­i­na­tion gives hay­wire an­tics. Es­sen­tial up­grade is costly.

Hood latches be­come in­creas­ingly frag­ile over the years. Re­place­ments are elu­sive, but spe­cial­ists can usu­ally help.

The Mondial’s rel­a­tively sub­dued ex­haust note doesn’t suit ev­ery­one, so fruitier af­ter­mar­ket sys­tems are a com­mon up­grade. Make sure that the one fit­ted to yours isn’t too loud or in­tru­sive.
