These cars seem to be coming out fo the woodwork. There was a great restoration candidate 5 months ago in silver that sold for $187,000.
The series II is the better looking design in my opinion with the single headlights. This is Ferrari’s first production 2+2 model. This is the same chassis used on the legendary 250 GT LWB Tour de France cars but the engine was moved forward by 8 inches. The front and rear track were increased and the rear section of the roof was raised to give more cabin space for the rear seats. This positioned Ferrari the ability to offer a car for the bigger market. It was the company’s top selling model of its time.
It maybe a large production car for Ferrari but there are only 953 examples in total across 3 model variants that were produced between 1960 and 1963. It’s still a rare car and a V12 Ferrari engine.
Do you prefer the series 1 with double headlights or the series 2 with single headlights?
This 1962 Ferrari 250GTE 2+2 Series II is an excellent original example with matching numbers. Black with black interior and accompanied buy it’s original tool roll and jack, chassis 3177 has an excellent body with excellent panel fit. It also wears new leather on the front seats over red carpets. In the US since the 1960s, it has a well-documented ownership history and has also just completed a detailed service with copies of the service invoices on file. The car was repainted many years ago and while the overall presentation of the paint is very good, small areas of cracking can be noticed around the base of the front and rear windows. The exterior chrome is excellent with no pitting or corrosion. The engine compartment is nicely detailed with all correct equipment and the underside of the car is rust free. Currently the car is ready to drive and enjoy. It starts easily and the engine sounds excellent and pulls strong with excellent oil pressure. The brakes have also been completely rebuilt as well as the transmission which shifts smoothly through all gears. With tools, records, and much recent work completed, this is an ideal car for the true Ferrari enthusiast seeking to add an early V12 to their collection.
