Footnotes

  • Ferrari's earliest roadgoing coupés on the 250 GT chassis were bodied by Boano and Ellena, but by the winter of 1957-58, the factory's favored production partner, Pinin Farina, was submitting their own proposals for a redesigned model. The new model gained a welcome appearance of sleekness, lightness, and added length, by lowering the beltline and adding greater expanses of window glass. The result was truly beautiful and masterfully captured the classic Ferrari GT "look" like few bodies have, before or since. Buyers responded strongly and the 250 GT "PF Coupé" remains enjoyed by enthusiasts to the present day.

    Chassis no. 0959 GT, offered here, was originally supplied to an Italian client by the name of Mazzocchi, possibly Gianni Mazzochi, the publisher of Quattroruote magazine and serial Ferrari client. By the midpoint of the 1960s it was located on the West Coast of the United States. Subsequently it was bought by an American lorry driver, known for his exploits driving on the ice roads over frozen lakes in the remote Arctic territories of Alaska, as featured in the first episode of the television programme Ice Road Truckers. It remained in his ownership for the next fifty years, undergoing what might be termed a 'rolling restoration.' As part of this work, the original engine, absent from the car by 1966, was replaced by Tipo 112 engine no. 0373, from a 250 GT Europa, by Grand Prix Motors of Portland, Oregon, around 1970.

    In 2018 the car was acquired by the current owner, who saw the opportunity to reunite engine no. 0373 with its correct car. Chassis no. 0959 GT is thus offered here less engine but otherwise essentially complete, as a fascinating project complete with an older respray and retrim but still quite presentable. The owner notes that some minor trim parts and instruments remain to be installed but are all present with the car and will transact to the new caretaker. A beautiful wooden steering wheel is still present and the full-size wire wheel spare is still in the boot.

    This is a wonderful opportunity for a new owner to complete a 250 GT Coupé of their very own and to enjoy a fabulous example of one of the great roadgoing Ferraris.
