Evaluation: Restored in 2005 and winner of several awards in high level concours over subsequent years, then driven on long distance tours. Excellent paint, chrome and lightly stretched upholstery. The engine compartment is meticulously restored and maintained but no longer fresh, an observation that also applies to the underbody. A wonderful restoration with careful miles since it was done, freshly serviced and new tires.
Bottom Line: Offered by Bonhams at Quail Lodge in 2001, a mere 20 years ago, where it had a mellowed older restoration and no-saled on a reported bid of $260,000. It has been extravagantly restored since then, and the world is a very different place where bespoke Ferrari values reside. The bidders liked this 400 SA, and for good and sufficient reason. It is visually distinctive and has performance to match its design.
