We are pleased to offer 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Ellena s/n 0857 GT. This Ellena is a great event car, eligible for almost any event on the planet, from the Colorado Grand to the Monterey Historic races to the US Ferrari Challenge to the Mille Miglia. As an event car, it has an unusually nice older restoration with a very straight body, finished in excellent older burgundy paint, over superb and supple tan Connolly leather seats and finished off with leather–bound brown Wilton Wool carpets. 250 GT Ellena s/n 0857 GT features a very smooth and strong running all–numbers–matching 128C single distributor engine, with machine work by Bob Wallace and assembly by Rob Shanahan. The car has been lovingly restored, from the frame up, with a complete suspension, electrical system and fuel system overhaul, by a fanatical owner. The complete body, paint, engine, underhood area, frame, suspension, brakes and chrome work were all originally restored and detailed to Pebble Beach Standards.

After sitting for approximately three years in a private museum collection, 250 GT Ellena s/n 0857 GT has just had its fuel tank drained and fuel pump rebuilt, the differential disassembled and re–sealed, new pinion bearing installed and the axle seals replaced. The wheel cylinders have been rebuilt and all new brake shoes fitted. The carbs are rebuilt and re–jetted, the accelerator pumps rebuilt and a complete mechanical inspection has just been completed, with all work done by Rod Drew’s F.A.I., Costa Mesa, CA. Easily one of the best Ellenas we have seen in many years, event friendly, well sorted and priced right at $449,000.
