Features

1961 Ferrari 250 GT PF Cabriolet Series II s/n 2865 GT, an unusual and interesting “barn find” Ferrari. 250 PF Cabriolet s/n 2865 GT remained in dry storage from 1985 to 2014, so twenty-nine years. In June of last year, 250 PF Cabriolet s/n 2865 GT was inspected and sold to an American client and came to the US. With nothing but a quick clean-up and tune-up, 250 PF Cabriolet s/n 2865 was shown on the lawn at both the Cavallino Classic and at Mar Lago in January of this year. 250 PF Cab s/n 2865 GT has what we believe are all matching engine, transmission and differential numbers and scored 80 points when shown at Cavallino in January, impressive for a barn find Ferrari. Because 250 PF Cabriolet s/n 2865 GT has been off the road and stored for three decades (in what can only be described as one of the driest climate on the planet), there are none of the usual rust problems, old sheet metal damage, old inner front panel damage or old rear inner structure damage usually found on higher-mileage, multi-owner, forty-five year old Enzo-era Ferraris. Cosmetically, only the covered headlights are not original. As an un-molested long-term barn find, 250 PF Cabriolet s/n 2865 GT has all of the original components that are usually missing, such as the original short-wave Blaupunkt radio, the correct riveted aluminum belly pan and inspection plate and the correct and original exhaust. Only the air horns are not original. Comes with the Arabic Moroccan plates plus copies of the Moroccan title work, copies of the US Customs importation paperwork and a current Montana title and plates.
