Evaluation: The seventh second-series 250 GT produced and delivered new to Modena. Then on to the US and then the UK in 2012. Superb paint finish in a wonderful deep Blu Notte. The drivers’ door protrudes at the rear and the trunk lid is a poor fit. The exterior chrome and glass trim are excellent. The engine is clean with no apparent leaks. The black crackle finish looks aged. The driver’s door capping appears to have been rattle can sprayed. The seat leather is recent and high quality. Ferrari Classiche Certified. A good showing just a shame it let down by panel fitment.
Bottom Line: This car was a no-sale at the RM Sotheby’s Paris sale back in February at a larger high bid than this reported price, which was a post-block result. The seller decided not to go chasing bids and just let the car go, which made a serious bargain for the new owner who got a handsome 250-series Ferrari at a rock-bottom price.
