We are pleased to offer 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 s/n 2759 GT. This 250 GTE has a fully documented ownership history going back thirty-five years with one owner for twenty-eight years. This 250 GTE has been going through a dedicated and detailed restoration from the frame and bare tub-up by a very knowledgeable owner, regardless of cost. 250 GTE s/n 2759 GT has an excellent body and is ready for final body work and the color of your choice.

The body was stripped to bare metal and has new fender bottoms, jack hole assemblies and new floors with custom fabricated multi-panel insulated compartments exactly as original. The doors, hood, trunk and fender louvers have been fitted and aligned. The entire underside has been stripped to bare metal, primed, painted and undercoated. All this work was done while 250 GTE s/n 2759 GT was mounted on a rotisserie for best access. The underside and wheel well panels have also been stripped, primed and painted and the underhood, interior and trunk are painted semi-gloss black per original. Both the original front belly pan and a new front belly pan are included. A used main belly pan was located and is included.

The brake System is completely rebuilt and operational, including the emergency brake. The calipers, power unit and master cylinder have been sleeved with all work completed within the last six months and includes new pads. The brake discs are all in excellent condition. 250 GTE s/n 2759 GT is offered as a complete “rolling chassis”.

The engine rebuild is underway with new pistons, rings, wrist pins, rod and main bearings. The cylinders were honed and the short block is assembled, with mains and rods torqued and pinned. It comes with a full set of new valve guides and stem seals to upgrade the cylinder heads. It also comes with a new ANSA exhaust system and a new clutch assembly. Matching engine-chassis numbers of course. It comes with the very rare build sheets. Does not include trailer. Priced right at $79,950.
