Chassis No. 9781; Engine No. 9781. Grigio Ferro over gray leather with a black cloth top. 3967-cc, 300-hp V-12. 5-speed manual. Chrome-spoke polished-rim Borrani wire wheels, Michelin X blackwalls. Power windows, halogen headlights, owner’s manual, full tool roll, and Ferrari Classiche Red Book certification.

EVALUATION : Recent restoration | Cavallino Platinum award 2017–19. One of 99 built as a droptop. Known history from new, original chassis, engine, and body. Restored in 2016 in the present colors and materials with beautiful clearcoat paint, bright chrome, and inviting interior. The underside is as clean and fresh as the top. The engine compartment is beautiful, fresh, dry, and clean. Impeccable restoration and preservation of one of the prettiest of all open Ferraris.

BOTTOM LINE : Sold by RM at Monterey in 2015 for an undisclosed amount (reported to be just over $2 million) and offered by RM at Monaco in 2016, where it was reportedly bid to €1.8 million (about $2.03 million at the time). The result here is indicative of a general softening in top-end Ferrari V-12s in the past five years, a result that will not please the other 98 330 GTS owners, but is realistic in the present environment and comparable with the 330 GTS s/n 10111 sold by Gooding & Company a day later for $1,985,000 (its bright-yellow color earning a “Giallo premium” over the subtle gray of this car).

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
