EVALUATION : Older restoration | Represented as the matching-numbers engine (internal No. 498F) and documented with a copy of the Ferrari build sheet (but not Ferrari Classiche certified). Restored in the early 2000s and retains very good paint and chrome. Interior shows only slight stretching and moderate creasing. There are some paint flaws, particularly over the left headlight. The underbody is nearly like new. From the featured Ferrari Spider Collection.
BOTTOM LINE : Unlike the first series of 250 GT Pinin Farina cabriolets, which were competitive on track and at a variation on the Tour de France, the later Series II Pinin Farina cabriolets were relatively sedate road cars based on the series-production 250 GT Pinin Farina coupe. They’re valued at a quarter or so of the Series I cabriolets, which is borne out by this good but not outstanding example’s result. The rare (but unrestored) hardtop earned it a modest bump.
