Car Catcher: A Well-Documented, Numbers-Matching Ferrari 250GT

Sponsored Content Presented by Fantasy Junction.

In an effort to increase production output (and, in turn, provide a steady income to Enzo’s racing efforts), Ferrari enlisted the help of Pininfarina to produce a body for Ferrari’s already successful 250 GT Coupe. The result was the aptly named 250GT Pinin Farina Coupe.

Power came from the familiar 3.0-liter Columbo V12, with many of the mechanicals carried over from previous models of the 250 GT. In total, more than 350 were said to have been built during its 1958-’60 production run.

This 1959 Ferrari 250 GT is one such example, reported to be a numbers-matching example with 37,957 miles on the odometer.

The Ferrari has recently “seen considerable restoration work, both cosmetic and mechanical,” that includes an engine rebuild by Patrick Ottis & Co. and a repainting of the car in its original shade of Grigio Scuro.

As well, the listing points out that, thanks to its Massini report, the 250GT has a well-documented history dating all the way back to when the chassis was sent to Pininfarina on October 24, 1958.

Included in the sale of this 1959 Ferrari 250 GT are the Marcel Massini report, a reproduction tool roll, and records that include copies of the build sheet and the restoration work completed. Find the car for sale through Fantasy Junction for $525,000.
