Rick Cole and Michael Sheehan collaborate @ Monterey 2014

According to information complied by Ferrari Historian Mike Sheehan, 250 Pininfarina Cabriolet Series II s/n 3807 GT is the very last of the Series II Pininfarina Cabriolets built and came from new with the rare and desirable Factory hardtop, teardrop shaped amber blinker lights, disc brakes and Koni shocks. S/n 3807 GT was delivered as a bare chassis to Pininfarina on June 1st of 1962 and completed on 17 Oct. After completion the car was sent to Garage Francorchamps in Brussels, Belgium and sold new to a Mr. Albinus on 17 Nov. of 1962.


According to information complied by Ferrari Historian Mike Sheehan, 250 Lusso s/n 4481 GT/L was sold new in July 1963 in Italy thru Crepaldi, authorized dealer in Milan to S.I.L.V.A. Sas for a Mr. Bianchi and delivered new in Blu Notte Metallizzato 18943 Italver, the same dark blue on the car today.

As the last of the legendary 250 GT road cars, the 250 Lusso remains one of the most beautiful and best driving Ferrari road cars ever produced. With only 350 cars built, the 250 Lusso has taken its place in history as the last and most collectible of the 250 GT road going Berlinetta’s. Thanks to a high-revving V-12, a well spaced gearbox and disc brakes and a Watts link rear suspension, the Lusso handles and drives as nicely as it looks. The Lusso set the styling standard for grand touring cars when new, and is the most user-friendly of the 250 Berlinetta’s today. This car is in absolutely breathtaking condition and would be a welcome addition to any serious Ferrari collection.
