This 1961 Ferrari 250GT is our fourth restoration on this iconic model. It belongs to a Canadian customer, and it arrived here to be completed after spending 6 years in another restoration shop. We began the body restoration process from the beginning, taking the car down to bare metal due to peeling paint, then performing the necessary metal and lead work.
Its original V12 engine was rebuilt in-house and a completely new interior was all done in-house as well. The car is now complete after a nut and bolt restoration.
It went to the Cavallino Show and won a platinum - it didn't stop there, though. This classic Ferrari also won the Wayne Obry Memorial award for excellence in restoration as well as an Excellence Award from the Mar-A-Lago show.
The Ferrari had spent the last 6 years at a Midwest restoration shop where the restoration was started. The paint began cracking prior to the car being assembled due to incorrect surface preparation and adhesion issues.
Here, we can see the paintwork that separated from the bodywork from the previous shop.
Here, we show the inside of the trunk lid being refinished.
we often have to re-fabricate new ones. This was the case for this custom-fabricated heater box, made from scratch with sheet metal in our shop.
