Evaluation: Body number 00001, possibly the first 300Sc Roadster. Replacement engine represented to be the correct type. Nearly pristine but the top has folding wrinkles, clear rear window. Excellent paint and chrome. Impressive engine compartment with some paint loss. The upholstery is barely stretched, the interior trim and wood are even better. Clear, sharp gauges. An exceptional example.
Bottom Line: Let down by its replacement engine, this 300Sc Roadster was offered by RM Sotheby’s at Monterey in 2019 where it was reported bid to $625,000, a bottom-feeder offer at the time. The result here is more appropriate and both the buyer and the seller should be satisfied.
