In fact, only 629 Mondial Cabriolets were made between 1983 and 1985.Made in Maranello, Italy, this cars triple black (code 1240) exterior is in overall great condition, with a few blemishes visible upon close inspection. The cars windows are clear and crack-free, including the soft-tops rear window. This Ferrari rolls on Michelin TRX radials, size 240/55VR390, surrounding original Ferrari wheels with flat centers and pronounced edges to the five spokes. All wheels feature a yellow circular center cap bearing Ferrari's blackCavallino Rampanterearing-horse logo. The tires and wheels are in satisfactory order, with the passenger side wheels evidencing some slight blemishes upon close inspection.This cars bodywork is straight and the bumpers look great but do show some imperfections, the engine bay tucked behind the cabin is quite tidy and the forward cargo area looks good.Tucked in that engine bay is a Ferrari-cast lightweight alloy 3.0L DOHC 32-valve V-8 engine with shrink-fitcylinder liners; a five-bearing, flat-planecrankshaftwith pairedconnecting rodson eachjournal;belt-driven, quadoverhead camshafts(two per cylinder bank) acting directly on thevalves; alloycrossflow cylinder heads; and awet-sumplubrication system. This motor feature a cast-alloy intake housing nestled centrally above the engine vee, withmanifold tubingrunning directly to each cylinder. Marellielectronic ignitionis used and comprises twincoils, a separatedistributorrun off each bank of cylinders and a commonelectronic control module. Fuel metering is viaBosch K-Jetroniccontinuousfuel injectionwithlambd xhaust sensing. Exhaust gases on all models are collected via4-2-1 systemsfitted to the outside of eachcylinder bank, flowing through one or twocatalytic convertersto twin outlets each side of the rear panel.The previous owner spent more than $7,000 giving the car a mechanical refresh in December 2016. The fuel system was cleaned, the car has new timing belts, seals, rollers, a water pump, a thermostat, spark plugs and valve cover gaskets, plus a rebuilt starter, recently serviced brakes and repaired Nuovolare exhaust system. Driver convenience features include power brakes, power locks and power windows. Additionally, the car has just had the AC fully serviced with a new AC compressor and charged with R134.Mated to that V-8 is a five-speed,all-indirectmanual transmissionusing adog-leg selector pattern was the only transmission offered. Instead of the conventional Hshift pattern, this arrangement (also known as a reverse h-gate) has first gear situated to the far left and back, behind reverse. This pattern has been popular with racing gearboxes, as it allows quicker, more direct shifts between second, third, fourth and fifth gears. Output from the final drive to the rear wheels is via a pair of short, soliddrive shaftsfitted withconstant-velocity jointsat each end to allow for suspension articulation.Thetransmission housingis integral with theengine sumpcasting, albeit with its own oil supply, sitting below and slightly to one side of the main block.Drive to the gearbox is via a single-plate, diaphragm-springclutchand a set of drop-gears located outboard of the left-hand end of the crankshaft, with output torque feeding into a friction-platelimited-slip final driveunit offset to the rear of the gearbox. For these models, clutch actuation is hydraulic, unlike their two-seater cousins' cable systems, and transmission selection is via a rod which extends through the center chassis tunnel and passes through the engine sump into the transmission housing.Suspensionsystems arefully independentall-round, comprising unequal-lengthupper and lower wishbones, coil-overdamper units andanti-roll barsat each end. Steeringis an unpoweredrack-and-pinionmechanism sitting ahead of the front wheels. Brakingis via four-wheelventilated diskswith split-circuit vacuum assistance.Inside, the seats and interior are fully trimmed in black Connolly leather,with the exception of the use of black vinyl for thedashboardtop and upper door linings. A previous owner spent about $3,000 refreshing the interior and it looks great. The power antenna is inoperable. All seats, including those in the rear, are stronglybucket-shaped and fitted withinertia-reel seatbelts. The matching carpet is in similar shape to the seats, the inner door panels are in great shape, as are the center console and mirror glass.A central tunnel for the chassis is prominent in both front and rear foot wells and is straddled by a large frontcenter consolewith a polished open-gated gear selector and electronic warning-light panel. Electric windows (the front panes only are opening) are standard fitments with their controls on the central console. A three-spoked Momo steering wheel is mounted to asteering columnadjustable for reach and rake, behind which is a "pod-style" instrument binnacle holding six gauges speedometer,tachometer, fuel level, water temperature, oil pressure and oil temperature. The Mondial instrumentation is completed with a comprehensive set of warning lights and electronic check panels. Rounding out this interior is a Kenwood AM/FM stereo with CD player.TheMondialname (French forworldorglobal) originated from Ferrari's motor racing history the500 Mondialwas a successful lightweight sports racer, which was named to celebrate Ferrari's consecutiveFormula 1 World Championshipsin 1952 and 1953. The name was revived as Ferrari won theFormula 1 World Championshipsin 1975, 1976, 1977 and 1979. Conceived as a 'practical' Ferrari, the Mondial is a genuine long-distance four-seater, with sufficient rear head- and legroom for children and smaller adults. It affords easy access via the long single doors and has surprisingly good all-round visibility for a mid-engined car.Competition to this Ferrari in 1984 included Aston Martins Volant, Chevrolets Camaro Convertible, Jaguars XJ-SC Cabriolet, Maseratis Biturbo Spyder, Mercedes-Benzs 500 SL, Pontiacs Firebird Convertible and Porsche 911 3.2 Cabriolet.This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri.
