Features

1963 Ferrari 250 Lusso s/n 4481 GT. Just completed a $40,898.26 engine rebuild and a $7407.66 suspension and brake system rebuilt by Alfa of Tacoma. Near flawless Blu Notte Metallizzato (very dark blue) paint with nicely patinaed tan leather over a better–than–new body. Only two owners from new with one well documented owner since 1969, so 41 years. A gorgeous pampered Lusso that runs and drives as nicely as it looks! Documented history going back to the day it left the factory. Complete with the very rare build sheets, the original tool roll and tools, the Kurt Miska “Berlinetta Lusso” book and the Merritt “Operating handbooks”. All matching numbers, of course. We welcome any mechanical or body inspection, as we do not believe there is a Lusso that can compare in today’s market in this price range. Ready for any touring event or show.
