vehicle descriptionAn unrusted, never damaged Southern California delivered example specially ordered with a host of seldom seen options including: folding Webasto Sunroof with Plexiglass wind deflector, Reuter rake adjusting mechanisms to front seat backs, adjustable/removable front seat headrests, locking wine rack cabinet below left rear picnic table, locking cabinet below right rear table with leather covered flasks and Waterford crystal glasses, "Bustle" trunk lid for additional luggage capacity. All of these remain with the vehicle along with a front badge bar of the era, twin outside mirrors, factory air conditioning and the seldom seen spectator stools to fit in the rear bumper over riders.
It was acquired by us from the second owner, a noted Southern California collector in 1995 with slightly over 47,000 miles traveled, still wearing its original California Black license plates and accompanied by some interesting original documentation. The original paint had been removed revealing its unmolested sheet metal beneath and the engine had been freshly gone through by his Ferrari specialists. The factory build sheet shows that it was delivered with a combination of blue shades for the exterior and interior. We carefully completed the restoration to the order of one of our favorite clients from whom it was later reacquired, finished to suit in period Rolls Royce colors of Silver Mink over Seychelles Blue with Surf Blue hides (to match his wife's eyes) piped Grey.
This is an exceptionally strong performer, mechanically upgraded using technology unavailable 59 years ago. A delightful motorcar in every respect. The vehicle is now in the hands of a noted collector and may be viewed by appointment in Florence, Italy.
