This car was delivered new in July 1959 to the Franco Britannic Autos dealer, who sold it to its first owner, Mr. Da Silva, in Italy. Its original livery was "Grigio Argento" (ref. Max Meyer 16003), with black roof lining and "Pelle Nera" leather upholstery (ref. 8500). It was exported a year later to the United States where importer Luigi Chinetti Motors sold it to Vincent Scavo, from Connecticut. In 1984, it belonged to an enthusiast living in Massachusetts. It then changed colour twice: first to blue, with always black interior, then to red, this time with beige leather upholstery.
In July 1990, the car was imported into Switzerland, the first return to Europe since its departure to the US. In the meantime, the original engine has been replaced by an engine corresponding to the original type (confirmed by the Ferrari Classiche certification delivered with the car). In June 1992, the original engine was reported to have remained in the US, Connecticut, and in January 1997, in the hands of Steve Barney, Greensboro (CT).
In 2002, this car entered the prestigious collection of Jean-Pierre Slavic, a great Ferrari enthusiast, who then sold it to its current owner, based in Modena, who would only use it sparingly.
Since then, this Ferrari 250 GT Pinin Farina coupé has been repainted in its original metallic grey colour and is in superb condition. The beige leather interior is very well crafted and, as the Ferrari Classiche certification underlines, the bodywork is original, as are the mechanical components (transmission, disc brakes, suspension...) other than the engine.
Certified by the manufacturer and documented by Marcel Massini, this superb
Auction estimate: €430 000 / 480 000
