Pinin Farina was selected to build the first 250 GT Cabriolet on chassis 0655GT. It was destined for the 1957 Geneva Motor Show. It was well received and laid the groundwork for the series of 39 more cabriolets that followed. The design included traits that would later be included on Series I bodies such as a long hood, covered headlights, rear fenders that kick-up, wind-up windows, recessed rear tail lights and a simple raked windshield without vent windows. After a brief ownership by a navigation company in Genoa, this car was refurbished for Ferrari Grand Prix driver Peter Collins. Collins modified the car in 1958 switching to Dunlop disc brakes from the original factory drums. Mike Hawthorn, a fellow driver with Collins persuaded Enzo Ferrari (after Collins' death) to authorize a similar switch for his next race. To that extent, 0655GT was instrumental in leading the Ferrari migration from drum to disc brakes.
