VIN: AM115/49 2128
This is the more desirable 4.9 liter version of the Ghibli (known as the SS). Has its matching number 4.9 liter engine. 5 speed ZF gearbox, AC and power steering,. Excellent engine with plentry of power. Oil pressure is very good at 100psi at 3000 rpm at normal temperature. The car runs and sounds excellent! It idles very good and pulls strong. Gearbox, clutch and brakes all work as they should. Gauges ((including clock) are in working order. Headlights, wipers, power windows, lights, etc work. It has AC and it works.
Paint is good for a driver but not show quality. Body gaps are very good. Chrome and glass is very good. Undercarriage is straight and rust free; still with its original factory undercoating.
Interior is original, with the exception of the seats which were redone at some time. The interior is quite nice and I would definitely leave it alone as it gives the car the right amount of patina. Original radio with rare original electric antenna. It has two leather covered cushions in the rear, although it would have to be a legless person to use those as seats. Original run in decal still on windshield and the original wiper blades. The odometer reads 12,700 miles, which I have no way to verify, but the number of original items would indicate that it might be correct.
Has the optional ANSA quad exhaust which sounds fantastic and gives the car a more aggressive look. This exhaust is no longer available and very desirable. Good chrome and glass. Spare tire is new.
Comes with spare tire, jack in the bag, tool kit , parts and owner's manual.
This is a good car for someone looking for a Ghibli that is sorted out and can be immediately enjoyed. Ghiblis are currently undervalued when compared to their period competitors such as the Ferrari Daytona. These cars are great drivers and are simply too beautiful to be ignored for much longer. Now is to time to grab a Ghibli ... especially a SS with the 5-speed manual gearbox and power steering.
