This is the fourth car of this series we have restored to IAC/PFA Platinum level. Each was displayed at Cavallino upon completion and each won that highest accolade. This car won Platinum in 2017 and also the Wayne Obry Excellence in Restoration Special Award. Like all major Ferrari restorations, this car was completely stripped and our metal men worked many hours to get all the body panels perfectly straight and the door gaps perfect. The original numbers-matching engine was completely overhauled and the entire chassis, suspension, brakes and running gear was rebuilt.
The entire interior was restored with new imported leather, correct wool carpets and all instruments were restored, chrome trim replated and new wiring harnesses installed. A new correct canvas top was handmade over replated convertible bows. The attention to detail and authenticity is exceptional, as evidenced by the judges’ appreciation. New, original Borrani wheels and Pirelli tires add sparkle to the fully rebuilt suspension, shocks and springs. Of course, a new Ansa exhaust system provides the finishing touch.
