Painted in its original Color

Mechanically Reconditioned and ready for the road
S1 1961 Ferrari 250GTE #254 of 300 (titled as a 1962) . PERFECT MECHANICALLY ORIGINAL 250 GTE, occasionally if you’re lucky you get to find something really special like this wonderful 62 250, to have been lucky enough to have owned one of these beautiful Ferrari’s back in the early sixties was quite something, driving her today I’m completely blown away by how she performs on the road, I’m not sure I know of anything built at the time that would have been as fast and nibble, other than a race car. Even by today’s standards she’s fast. While a lot of attention has be paid to restoring the floors and interior, the rest of the car especially the mechanics were in unbelievably good original condition and simply needed recommissioning and servicing. While many of these wonderful Ferrari’s have been over restored this one is mechanically original and feels fantastic on the throttle. Below we’ve listed all the work carried out and now she’s ready to drive anywhere…fast. Recently prices have started to climb and it’s about time, catch her while she’s on the rise and drive her exactly how she was designed to be driven.
