1983 Ferrari Mondial Quattrovalvole

1983 Ferrari Mondial Quattrovalvole

Adhering to its name, Ferrari is certainly known for its innovative design, handmade automobiles, and plenty of power delivered with a resonance only a Ferrari can offer up. The word Mondial means literally involving a large part of the world, which is absolutely the case when one talks about this iconic automaker.

Here in our numerous halls and rooms at Classic Auto Mall we have almost everything one can think of for consignment offering at this time. We only have 1 other Ferrari, and now 1 Mondial Quattrovalvole (QV but you have to love the Italian language how it just rolls off your tongue). Blanco con Rosso and bellissimo, this car will impressionare tu!

Certainly, in sync with the times… those being the mid 80's we see the Italian interpretation of the squared off design theory. With a penchant for grids and horizontal grilles, integrated contrasting crash bumpers and a low-slung overall profile, this Mondial presents nicely. Panels are straight and gaps are minded. A beneficiary of a repaint and ding removal in August 2021 along with the bumper shims being removed and the bumpers being painted body matching silver instead of black we can agree this car is smooth and clean. An extra-long wheelbase which was necessary to accommodate the mid-engine, and the car is well balanced. Scuderia Ferrari badging in yellow, and Mondial wheels replacing the original metric wheels, (however, they are included with the purchase), against the Silver exterior and it's a great combo.

Pelle nera adorns the door panels, and sports plenty of padding and stitching. Slight spoiling is seen on both doors in high use areas. More pelle nera covers the bucket seats, with the exception of the driver's bucket which has been recovered in Naugahyde, and drip in Italian design with their sleek high backs and minimal padding. A 2 plus 2 rear seating arrangement is seen behind the buckets. Square design in the console shows a chromed gear shift grid and sitting next to it an early version of what would now be a digital info center with corresponding warning lights when various functions are due service or inoperable. Moving back on the console we note numerous power switches and pushbuttons, one of which is missing its function marking. These are the A/C and heat controls, power windows, defroster, and antenna to name a few. At the front of the console is a Blaupunkt AM/FM/Cassette stereo with a remote Blaupunkt EQ. A square design dash sits in its own pod atop the dash, and a Nardi mahogany and aluminum steering wheel is in front of this, the original wheel is included. Deep black carpeting floods the floors and is protected by black carpeted mats.

A Ferrari Dino 2.9 Liter V8 is engineered into the mid car engine bay and makes a respectable 230hp. Bosch K Jetronic injection feeds fossils to the mill, and it pushes power to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission and down to a 4.063 final drive axle. We do note that the engine cover struts are weak, the oil dipstick is missing its electronic connection, and no float valve switch on the coolant header tank.

Looking underneath, we see some early trappings of ground effects panels and shields. Slight surface rust is seen on the corners of these panels, but certainly the car remains structurally sound. Independent suspension and power disc brakes are all around. We note the lack of catalytic converters and only see straight pipes in their place but our consignor states that a pair of hollowed converters and converter piping is included with the purchase.

Typical of an Italian sports car it is tight for the average American to get in and out, but once you're in it's comfortable, and seems spacious. All controls are within reach, unfortunately many of the electrics are currently not functioning. Some of the nonfunctional items being the locks not working either via power or manually, the odometer not turning, the power mirrors not working, sunroof not working, the windshield washers not working, the electronic gas door open switch not working and the electric heater control valve not working. The engine ran smoothly, and shifted with ease, I just had to get accustomed to the grid.

A good example that could use some electrical work on the power conveniences side, but you still have access by the manual pulls. A new paint job and some bumper smoothing along with some maintenance items, timing belts and water pump replaced in 2015 and a myriad of extra parts and we can certainly overlook some of the cipiglios. Priced right, this could be your entry into the Ferrari world, and you can have wind in your hair to boot! Eccitazione Abbondanza !
