Another stallion arrived in the MotoeXotica Classic Cars Paddock; were pleased to present this 1986 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet. Built in Maranello, Italy and designed by Pininfarina, this seldom seen example is one of 810 Mondial Cabriolets made between 1985 and 1988 and one of 449 units imported to the United States.

Finished in Corsa Red (code 300), the cars paint and trim are in great condition, as is the windshield, which is clear and intact. The cars lights look great and its bodywork is straight and solid. This Prancing Horse rolls on Yokohama radials, size 205/55ZR16 in front and 225/50ZR16 in back. Each donut surrounds a five-spoke alloy wheel with the prancing horse on the yellow center caps. The wheels and tires are in satisfactory order.

Under the hood is Ferraris 3.2L, 32-valve DOHC V-8 engine (F105C040) with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and breathing via quad exhausts. At their core, all Mondial engines comprise a Ferrari-cast lightweight alloy V-8blockwith 90bank-angle; shrink-fitcylinder liners; a five-bearing, flat-planecrankshaft with pairedconnecting rodson eachjournal;belt-driven, quadoverhead camshafts(two per cylinder bank) acting directly on thevalves; alloycrossflow cylinder heads; and awet-sumplubrication system.

Enginecapacitystarted at 3.0L and increasing to 3.2L for the Mondial 3.2 and culminating in 3.4L. Mirroring the two-seater Ferrari V-8 vehicles, all 3.0 and 3.2L engines sit across the car with their crankshaft andcylinder planes transverseto the main vehicle axis. Front trunk hood struts will need to be replaced. Like the newFerrari 328, the Mondial's engine grew in both bore and stroke to 3.2L in 1985. The Mondial 3.2 was first presented at the 1985Frankfurt Auto Showin September that year.

A five-speed,all-indirectmanual transmissionusing adog-legselector pattern was the only transmission offered. Instead of the conventional Hshift pattern, this arrangement (also known as a reverse h-gate) has 1st 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. The parking brake light is on at the dash, although the brake does disengage. The service light is also on at the console.

In the 3.2 models, 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. Output from the final drive to the rear wheels is via a pair of short, soliddriveshaftsfitted withconstant-velocity jointsat each end to allow for suspension articulation.

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.

Although based on the two-seater vehicle designs, Mondials are slightly larger overall including having appreciably wider front and reartrackdimensions. Suspensionsystems arefully independentall-round, comprising unequal-lengthupper and lower wishbones, coil-overdamperunits andanti-roll barsat each end of the vehicle.

Steeringis arack-and-pinionmechanism sitting ahead of the front wheels, unpowered on all 3.2 models. Brakingis via four-wheelventilated discswith split-circuit vacuum assistance on all vehicles.

Inside, the tan Connolly leather seats are in very good order, as is the matching carpet. All seats, including those in the rear, are stronglybucket-shaped and fitted withinertia-reel seatbelts; three-point in front, two-point in back. Note: The rear seats will need to be installed. A central tunnel for the chassis structure is prominent in both front and rear footwells 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) and air-conditioning are standard fitments, with their controls on the central console. The A/C does blow, but not cold. Thehand
