Sure, Ferrari made 954 examples of the Ferrari 250 GTE. But, how many of them came clad in Blu Ascot? Just one. This one.

This is a matching-numbers example–chassis, engine and gearbox–with a continuous known history.

The Ferrari underwent a restoration from 2017 to 2018, with less than 600 miles added to the car since the work was completed.

I posted this about a year ago,  never heard anything in thought I'd try again.

From time to time, I've wondered what happened to two Ferrari' dad was a successful business owner and loved cars.  Pursuing, owning and selling automobiles was truly his passion.  Sadly, he was always too busy with his business to really enjoy / drive them very often...and he passed at the age of 55 in 1989.

In the late 1960's he owned two Ferrari' was a 330GTC and the other may have been a 250, similar to the one in this article, but honestly I was too young at the time to be certain.  What made both cars unique is my dad painted one a pastel green...and the other a pastel yellow, that was my dad...he liked to make things his own. 

I've reached out to the Ferrari Club of America, included my dad's name, place of business, the dealer he got them serviced, etc.  
Not a peep.

Has any one come across either a 330 or 250 painted a pastel green or yellow, or appeared to be at one time...?

Thanks much for your response.

In reply to husky450cr :

I'd imagine the Ferrari Club would be the first resource to try.

Here's contact info from Ferrari's website. Does this help?
