1953 Ferrari 250 Europa Serial Number 0325 EU
Built in November 1953, the only all alloy body Europa of the 13 produced by Pininfarina. Painted silver, with Anthos blue leather as the original. Unusual options: average speed indicator, 300kph speedometer, dual wiper motors and hood release levers. Original owner Jean Murray. Featured in ‘Le Ferrari de Pininfarina’ on pages 182–3; Antoine Prunet’s ‘The Road Cars’ page 120; Fitzgerald, Merritt, Thompson (ed.4) on page 43; ‘Ferrari by Pininfarina’ by Etienne Cornil on page 49, where it is shown as the Paris show car.
Starting with a very original car the restoration has been photo documented to date. Aluminum was used in almost every body part of the car including the inner door panels, dash, window winding mechanisms, window trim, and floor. The kilometer reads just over 56,000 which is probably correct based on pedal wear, overall condition of the suspension and other components. The car is very complete, even the glass brake fluid bottles are in excellent condition. The transmission is the large center–shift similar to that used in the 375MM. The proper 3 liter Lampredi engine from Europa #0313 was rebuilt using coil valve springs and all new internal parts. A new ring and pinon has been installed and every mechanical part on the car has been either replaced or rebuilt. This is one of the few Ferraris that would be eligible for both the Mille Miglia and the Tour Auto as well as the Colorado Grand and all other tour events. It was selected as one of 12 cars to be on the lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours in 2001 honoring Pininfarina.
