This 1961 Ferrari 250 PF Cabriolet was in California and Arizona most of its life. Since 1977 it was with the same owner in Flagstaff. It was parked in his garage in 1988 with a clutch problem and remained there until late 2009 when it was purchased by our customer. This car was an amazing find. The restoration was completed in the summer of 2013 and appeared in its first car show at the Ferrari Club of America International Meet in Wisconsin where it received its first Platinum Award. It was later displayed at The Quail in Monterey in August of 2013 where it was very well received. Most recently it returned from the Cavallino Classic, a large Ferrari show in Florida, where the car won its class and received another Platinum Award.

This is how the car arrived to us after sitting stationary for 21 years after a clutch problem.
After sitting for so long the interior needed attention after it deteriorated.
The transmission was the reason the car was stowed away so the clutch issue was finally going to be fixed.
Parts are bagged, tagged, labeled and inventoried to keep everything organized.
After the complete disassembly of the vehicle it was blasted to reveal the metal underneath which needed attention. Our metal fabricator created new metal for areas on the body that were past being usable and began replacing them.
After the body had the new metal installed and the body work completed then came time to paint the car.
After the new paint was applied it was then sanded and buffed to absolute perfection.
Upon completion of the sanding and polishing, the exterior reassembly began.
Hides of leather were sourced and purchased. Seats were stripped to their bare frames and restored.
Our trimmer crated a new top for the car.
The interior was finally complete with new carpets, leather, foam and door panels then reassembled.
After the engine and transmission were refreshed to better than new condition, it was placed back in the car.
After it was complete we took it to the Ferrari Club of America National Meet in Wisconsin where it won a Platinum award. Then we took it to display at The Quail in Monterey which you can see in this photo.
