Car Catcher: A Rare Manual-Equipped Ferrari 400i Convertible

Sponsored Content Presented by Significant Cars.

The Ferrari 400, 400i and 412 may not be as popular as other Ferrari models—possibly to do with the optional GM-sourced, three-speed automatic transmission—but each example built was still powered by a healthy V12 engine good for more than 300 horsepower.

This 1983 Ferrari 400i is a unique example: In addition to being one of a limited number of aftermarket convertibles produced by Straman,  it is also equipped with the five-speed manual transmission.

Reported to have only 54,000 miles on the odometer, the 400i is said to have been “well taken cared of its entire life—never left outside, or driven in inclement weather.” As well, the listing notes that the car was serviced recently.

Also included in the sale is the Ferrari’s “factory tools, books, some small spares, and lots of records.”

Find this 1983 Ferrari 400i for sale from Significant Cars for $99,500, though is open to offers.
