Our customer purchased this 1961 Ferrari PF Cabriolet from a family back east that owned the car for 35 years. It was in excellent overall condition upon arriving in Denver. We performed some initial mechanicals and cosmetic freshening years ago.
We completed a restoration of body and paint, an overhaul of the original V-12 engine, freshening of the suspension, complete interior restoration including construction of a new soft top and restoration of the original Borrani wire wheels. Then this beautiful car was entered in the 2015 Cavallino Classic Concorso, where it won a Platinum award.
This car has been on the Colorado Grand - a grueling (for the cars) 1000-mile journey through the Rocky Mountains - for the last 5 years.
We began by disassembling the vast majority of the vehicle in preparation for the restoration.
The interior was in need of help so removing the interior in preparation for new leather and trim was a must.
The original foam had perished and the leather was not far behind so new materials were a must.
After the disassembly we sanded it down to reveal the imperfections and promptly fixed them.
After the body work was complete and hit with primer then sanded again, its new paint was then applied.
The engine was disassembled in preparation for the refresh.
Cylinder heads ready for assembly.
The car was finally ready to be reassembled starting with trim, the new interior, and refreshed suspension.
Our trimmer created a template to cut, stitch and build a new convertible top.
The top was completed and put back on the car.
The new interior was installed and started to take shape.
The seats were redone in the correct natural color.
The interior was completed and reinstalled.
The car was finished and was taken to the 2015 Cavallino Classic Concorso, where it won a Platinum award.
