History

S/n 1643 GT. 250 PF Coupe. 2nd series car with disc brakes and overdrive transmission. Body no. 49. Beige MM16259. Tutta leather beige 846.

1979–80 Ferrari Owner’s Club Roster, listed by James Gelles, Burbank, California.

With Jeffers in the San Fernando Valley.

1988–91 FOC Roster, listed by current owner, Sherman Oaks, CA. With the current owner for about 15 years.

2002, 20 Sept. as per multiple conversations with the owner, he had Ed Pink do the block and the cylinder heads. All machine work is done and all the new parts are there but not yet assembled. New pistons, rings, bearings, chains, etc… Carbs are rebuilt. Cylinder heads are done and updated. New clutch, pressure plate and flywheel. Ed Pink is one of “the” engine builders in Southern California! At today’s prices the cost to do the machine work and parts, to date, are well over $15,000.

The body is extremely nice. They had the car stripped and painted in a deep dark blue by Junior’s painter. Wheels redone with stainless spokes and all new knockoffs by James. All chrome was done by Christiansen. Interior is original which is 4134 (dark tan) Connolly. The car has a laminated wood dash! He also ordered all new tires! He also has all new leather and carpeting.

2002, 27 Sept. inspected and photoed by M. Sheehan at the current owner’s well known shop. The very long term owner is a well known shop owner in Southern California. His name is one of “the names” to drop to have work done on your Ferrari.

The body is near perfect. They had the car stripped and painted in a dark blue by Junior’s painter. Junior’s painter is “the painter” for your Ferrari in Southern California! At today’s prices the cost to do the body and paint is well over $25,000!

Wheels redone with stainless spokes and all new knockoffs by James. James is “the” man to go to for Borrani wire wheels! Today the cost to do the Borranis with stainless steel spokes is almost $1,000 per wheel!

All chrome was done by Christiansen. Christiansen is “the” chrome shop to go to for Ferrari chrome! At today’s prices another $5,000 plus!

Interior is original which is 4134 (dark tan) Connolly. He also has all new leather and carpeting but not yet cut or fit! At today’s prices another $4,000!

He also ordered all new tires that go with the car! Again, at today’s prices another $1,000!

There is a new–old–stock Ansa exhaust system, still in the plastic wrapper, with the car.

2002, 07 Oct. Tom Armacost, Mike Sheehan’s trusty assistant, inspected and photo the car with most of its parts laid out. Spoke with the owner who confirmed the trans was rebuilt with new syncros and the diff came apart, was inspected, no problems were found and so it was re–assembled.

Both the owner and Ed Pink have total burnout on this job an have no interest in finishing it. The owner wants the car gone. Period. The bottom line is $57,000.

2002, 10 Oct.as per estimate from Carobu Engineering, a top level Southern California Ferrari engine builder, they will finish the engine, dyno test the engine, install the engine, transmission, headers, hang the new Ansa exhaust system and run all the wiring for about $20,000. The estimate includes the many minor parts needed such as plugs, points, plug wires, oil, filters, seals, gaskets, re–calibrating the distributors, new radiator and exhaust straps, all new exhaust hardware, etc.

The estimate to assemble the doors, door windows, front and rear glass, sunroof and trim is another $5,000.

A new interior, headliner and carpets will be about $5,000.
