1962 Ferrari 250 GTOWhile a large number of rare and beautiful cars made their way out to to the October’s Scuderia Southwest Cars and Coffee, a stunning blue ’62 Ferrari 250 GTO (serial number 3387) was without a doubt the star of the show. It’s the second GTO produced and was raced at Sebring in March of ’62 where it placed second over all and first in GT with Phil Hill and Oliver Gendebien behind the wheel. It later raced at Le Mans in June of ’62 and then went on to race in NART and by a privateer after that and is one of very few GTOs raced as a factory team car. It’s been repainted a number of times since it was built and received a number of minor cosmetic changes at those times, but it’s significant enough that Hot Wheels sells a 1:18 of it (in red) and is one of the more recognized 250 GTOs. The car has an interesting history, including being stolen by six men in the Savannah area in 1990. For many more photos of this very special car and many other stunning cars that were at the event, view the full gallery here. November’s event (Saturday, November 1st) should have some very amazing cars showing up as well, so wake up early and come out!
