Ferraris Online was founded 49 years ago in 1972 by Michael Sheehan. In the early 1970s, we bega\n our long restoration career fixing heavily crashed exotics for State Farm, USAA and Auto Club insurance, growing to be North Americas largest Ferrari Restoration shop. In the late 1970s, the boom to transform Daytona Coupes into Daytona Spyder conversions was all the rage, and we gave many coupes a haircut. That market died as interest rates climbed past 20% in 1980. We then followed the market over to Japan where we did a massive amount of business for many years. Each time the market shifted its focus, we shifted right along with it.
Today, we have a 4,000-squarefoot warehouse and show cars by appointment only. Thanks to the long reach of the Internet, we connect with an international clientele with all the advantages of being low-key and centered in the Mecca of California car culture. Plus with over 49 years in the business connecting with car enthusiasts and tracking every car we come across, we have built a massive Ferrari focused database with the histories on thousands of cars and a subscriber network of tens of thousands of people.
As Ferraris Online, we offer 49 years’ experience as specialty broker of exotic cars, specializing in Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati cars and collections of Ferraris and other exotic cars. Our expertise as Ferrari historians, and knowing current and historic market values and secular trends gives us an insider view of the market. We also offer over 30 years’ experience as an expert witness re: exotic car values regarding Ferrari market value, market trends, appraisals, and all aspects of repair and vehicle restoration
