1959 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II Gallery
The second series 250 GT cabriolet offered a variety of subtle changes over the first series models. This included open headlamps with a slightly more rounded nose and elongated tail lamp lenses. Slightly more space in the interior and trunk also made long journeys more comfortable. You can see these subtle differences in our 50+ photos of the GT Cabriolet Series II photo gallery. Check some specific model photos we have included below. See full Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II article
The very first 250 GT Series II Cabriolet built and the only prototype. Numerous unique original features not seen in any other Series II Cabriolet. Fitted with an updated type 128F “outside plug” engine. Offered from 20 years of single enthusiast ownership. Presented in wonderful driving condition.
Powered by the 128 F Series V-12 three liter engines, the Ferrari 250 I Cabriolets were both seriously quick and stylish. They were a tempting automotive siren whether they were owned by you, or you father. You see, the son of the owner of this car stole the car while his father was out of town. He proceeded to drive it to Sedona, Arizona from their home near San Diego. En route, he managed to burn out the clutch, quite un-derstandable considering his lack of experience and proper training. So, he had the car towed home, covered it up and never said a word. When his father arrived home he found that the car would not run and that no one locally had the necessary skills to resuscitate it. So it was left in storage and covered with boxes for 20 years. That is where the current owner found the car. It has since undergone an extensive restoration at I Classic Restoration in Englewood, Colorado. The son did eventually I confess to his misdeed, albeit 30 years later.
The 49th of only 200 Series II Cabriolets built. Formerly part of the collection of Ferrari enthusiast Peter Groh. Elegant color scheme, both as delivered and as now showing. A matching numbers example. The vehicle of choice for playboys and aristocrats alike.
