On picking the car up I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was as it had been described. So I got straight into it and drove home. What a drive put a smile on my face.
Thanks very much Trade Classics and I’m now looking out for my next classic to add to the collection.”.

As mentioned, Graham bought this car over 22 years ago, way back in 1997. Graham was captivated by the GT4 after driving one back in the mid-70’s and snapped this one up when he had the opportunity.
Graham was also attracted to the practical side of this car as he can fit his golf clubs in and room for luggage too!
In terms of the use over the years, Graham used the car for the first couple of years of ownership and then put the car into storage at his brother’s house for around fifteen years. Then nearly two years ago Graham took it out of storage and commissioned Greta Motor Body Works in Keswick to action a full body restoration – you’ll see the 2019 invoice totaling over £10k.
The car now looks absolutely stunning as you can see in the images and videos and is ready for a new owner to take over custodianship of this lovely little Ferrari.
Greta Motor Body Works have done a really great job on this body restoration – please take a look at all the images and videos to see how good it is.
Wheels & Tyres
The original and classic wheels look great and they are in really good condition too – they are wrapped in 220/55/390 Michelin TRX tyres that are dated 2016.
The car had a windows out respray as part of the restoration by Greta Motor Body Works, and any bodywork issues were remedied as part of this. We didn’t notice any visible rust issues during our visit. Please check out all the images and videos.
In stunning Rosso Red, the finish and colour of the paint is even across all the panels, as you would expect with a quality restoration. There’s a very small paint crease on the NS rear wing as can be seen in the video – it’s hard to see and only notice when pointed out. Please review all images and videos to assess the condition of this excellent restoration.
Glass and Trim
The trim and glass are in both good condition considering their age – again you’ll be able to assess the condition in all the images and videos.
Finished in a light tan leather with red piping, the interior looks very smart on this GT4 and in excellent condition.
Seats and Carpets
The seats are in great condition as you can see from the images and interior video.
The dashboard on the car looks in keeping with the rest of the interior, very smart. All the dials look good, very legible and not a lot of wear like you might expect on a car of this age.
Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Graham has changed the steering wheel for a Momo Corsa on but has the original Momo wheel that will be supplied to the new owner.
Graham took us on a very short drive to show the car in action and it performed exceptionally well.
Engine and Gearbox
The 3L engine burst in to life with no issue. Graham tells us the engine was rebuilt shortly before he bought the car when it was an exhibit at Bridgnorth Motor Museum, and has evidence of this work carried out. Graham has also fitted a full stainless steel exhaust.
Suspension and Brakes
There were no issues noticed on our short drive out in the car – Graham has had part of the suspension pollybushed and it now offers go-kart like handling, i.e. very precise to drive. Also and importantly the steering rack casing has been rebuilt recently.
A very short drive just to stretch the cars legs a little and see it in motion.
Electrics and Other
Graham informs us that the electrical items on the car are working as they should do.
As you know, Graham has owned the car for over 22 years and it was part of an exhibit at Bridgnorth Motor Museum before that for many years.
The car had a clock change back in the early 80’s (not unusual due to the reliability of the units) and you’ll see the mileage tracked in the records below. According to the records the actual mileage is 55,856.

HPi Check Results
– Our own HPI check is in progress.
The GT4 is a proper 70’s design and has matured well over the years. It’s a proper mid-engined Ferrari that will put a smile on your face, look great wherever you pull up, and you can also go away for the weekend with a passenger and luggage!
Graham will be sad to see his car go, however, it’s now time to find a new owner to enjoy the car.
