Chassis no. 0385GT, Engine no. 0385GT. Red over black interior. 2,953/240hp, 4-speed, chrome spoke Borrani wire wheels, Englebert tires, sliding side windows, outside fuel filler.

Condition: Forerunner to the 250 GT Tour de France with voluptuous Pinin Farina body. Displayed at the 1955 Turin Motor Show. Accident damaged in Greece in 1965 then stored until 1975 when it was retreived by Steve Barney for whom it was restored by Ferrari. Later owners include Brian Brunkhorst and Hartmut Ibing. Color changed from the original argento in the early 90’s. Engine rebuilt by Talacrest in 1995. Represented as matching-numbers, Ferrari Classiche Red Book certified this year. Casual old repaint over old paint and edge chips. Sound old upholstery and interior trim. Discolored rear and side window aluminum trim, pitted taillight bezel chrome. Orderly, aged engine compartment. Aged chassis. Charmingly original and preserved but would be stunning in the original argento exterior..

Bottom Line: An important Ferrari in many respects: handsome transition bodywork from the 250 MM and 375 MM; original components throughout; largely preserved and maintained; not seen in decades. Clearly the star of the show in the Guikas collection auction and a potential collection star for the new owner.
