About my Mondial

I’m an office guy that likes to wrench on his own Ferrari. Unlike many Ferraris my Mondial gets driven it at least 10.000km (7,000 miles) a year. Just like us humans a Ferrari needs to stretch its legs to stay in shape.

She is from 1987, yes almost all Ferraris are called a “she”. Has a grey metalic skin and a red interior. She originates from Italy where she had two owners then moved to Germany where she had another 2 owners, before I purchase her in June 2013.

One comment on “About my Mondial

  1. Hello,

    Nice site of yours! I ended up here looking for info on the Mondial 3.2. I’m about to purchase a cabriolet (~800 made). I drove “her” a couple of times, did some visual inspections and the only “but” I found is some slight corrosion in the bottom part of the chassis.

    This unit in particular has a steel plank attached to the bottom of the chassis. The position of this plank is more or less under front seats. Does you car have this plank? This is the part I’ll need to replace.

    Any pics of the “bottom” parts of your car will be very very very helpful!

    Thanks a lot.
