Another prancing horse has arrived at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, this time in the form of a rarely seen 1984 Ferrari Mondial QV Cabriolet. 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 crackfree, including the softtops 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 Ferraris blackCavallino Rampanterearinghorse 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 Ferraricast lightweight alloy 3.0L DOHC 32valve V8 engine with shrinkfitcylinder liners; a fivebearing, flatplanecrankshaftwith pairedconnecting rodson eachjournal;beltdriven, quadoverhead camshafts(two per cylinder bank) acting directly on thevalves; alloycrossflow cylinder heads; and awetsumplubrication system. This motor feature a castalloy 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 KJetroniccontinuousfuel injectionwithlambdaexhaust sensing. Exhaust gases on all models are collected via421 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 V8 is a fivespeed,allindirectmanual transmissionusing adogleg selector pattern was the only transmission offered. Instead of the conventional Hshift pattern, this arrangement (also known as a reverse hgate) 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 withconstantvelocity 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 singleplate, diaphragmspringclutchand a set of dropgears located outboard of the lefthand end of the crankshaft, with output torque feeding into a frictionplatelimitedslip final driveunit offset to the rear of the gearbox. For these models, clutch actuation is hydraulic, unlike their twoseater 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 independentallround, comprising unequallengthupper and lower wishbones, coiloverdamper units andantiroll barsat each end. Steeringis an unpoweredrackandpinionmechanism sitting ahead of the front wheels. Brakingis via fourwheelventilated diskswith splitcircuit 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 stronglybucketshaped and fitted withinertiareel 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 opengated gear selector and electronic warninglight panel. Electric windows (the front panes only are opening) are standard fitments with their controls on the central console. A threespoked Momo steering wheel is mounted to asteering columnadjustable for reach and rake, behind which is a podstyle 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 Ferraris motor racing history the500 Mondialwas a successful lightweight sports racer, which was named to celebrate Ferraris 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 longdistance fourseater, with sufficient rear head and legroom for children and smaller adults. It affords easy access via the long single doors and has surprisingly good allround visibility for a midengined car.
