1989, 18 Feb., Gerald Roush notes that only these four very special 410 style Pinin Farina bodied 250 GTs had the Ferrari chassis type 513. This chassis type is only used on 0463GT, 0465GT, 0467GT, and 0469GT. See FML 18 Feb., 1989., the original design was by “Pinin Farina” (the name was still two words then) and was first shown as a prototype, s/n 0429, at the Geneva Show in March 1956…Actual production of the 250 GT series was undertaken by another Italian coachbuilder, Boano. The reasons for the change, however, were not because “Pinin Farina wanted a minimum of 500 units…Ferrari was reluctant to order that many at one time.” Actually, Pinin Farina was in the midst of building a new factory, and if anything was not prepared to undertake the production of the new Ferrari, even at Ferrari’s modest production numbers. Remember, at that time Ferrari had produced fewer than 215 “street” Ferraris, all odd numbered from 001 to 0427!

Just found that I have the foglio for 0465GT (was not filed yet). When the engine was first run in January 1955 (? must mean 56) it was way down on power and had to be rebuilt. After rebuild it was retested 12 January 1956 and tested as acceptably. The heads had separate intake passages. The cams were tipo 128 17053/17054 (9mm), carbs were 36 DCZ3 with 27 mm venturies. The instruments were special order of the client, body by Farina completed 11 Aug., 1956 (?). Gearbox had Porsche synchros and a central shifter. See Ferrari Market Letter.

1998, September, to Bill Jacobs, Chicago.

1999, 18 July, sold to current owner in a multi–car tax trade with seven different cars in the trade.
