1960 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Pininfarina Series II


By the time Ferrari started the Series II they wanted significant changes in its design so that the Series II could be easily differentiated from the California Spider. It was also made more practical for grand touring with a more accommodating and luxurious interior and a larger boot. The car had the latest Colombo 128F V-12 engine with outside plugs, coil valve-springs and 12-port cylinder heads which produced 240 horsepower. Other performance attributes were improved as well, since the Series II was also equipped with disc brakes and a new four-speed gearbox with overdrive. Production started in late 1959 and lasted until 1962. During this time the Series II Cabriolet was the most expensive car in the 250 GT range. In fact, this car was such a success that a new generation soft-top Ferrari was not introduced until 1964. In total, 201 Series II Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina Cabriolets were produced.


The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina Series II Cabriolet, Serial number #2077 GT, features a complete restoration by well-known authorities, Antique Auto Restoration, with extensive receipts and documentation of concours level workmanship. The platinum level restoration resulted in a beautiful Series II that is ready for the show field or a touring event.


Additional receipts reflect work from noted authorities Equus Inc, and parts garnered from T.Rutlands, Lyle Tanner Ent., MadEnterprise, OKP, MoMa, Tillack & Co. among others with well documented ownership history since the mid 1970’s. Indicative of the comprehensive level of documentation and attention to detail, 2077 GT also has the Factory Build Sheets from Ferrari, verifying the “numbers matching” status of the correct factory 128F engine, this stunning Cabriolet is complete with a platinum required tool kit and most significantly, the original Heritage Certificate #0001061 issued by Ferrari.
