Pininfarina showed the prototype for a Ferrari 250GT cabriolet at the Geneva Show in early 1957, which led to 36 of what became known as the 250PF cabriolet being built. American Ferrari distributor Luigi Chinetti and West Coast dealer John von Neumann's customers clamored for something even racier. Ferrari responded with the California Spyder.

Two years after the first Spyder California was announced in 1958, Ferrari introduced an improved Spyder California, built on an 8-inch shorter competition chassis from the Ferrari 250 GT SWB race car. Its V12 engine was uprated to the semi-competition Tipo 168 specification and, to cope with the increase in power, it was fitted with Dunlop disc brakes. Between 1960 and 1963, a total of 56 SWB Spyder California's were built. The Pininfarina styling was almost identical to the earlier LWB model, the most obvious change being the air intake. Most SWBs also had covered headlights.

The early history of this steel bodied car is not known; it was originally delivered through a dealer in Switzerland, through its earliest owner is unclear. It is the 38th of 54 SWB California Spyders built. In the mid-1960s it was driven for a short time by the comedian, film star and former guest host at the Pebble Beach Concours Bob Hope while he was touring in Europe for the United Service Organization. In 1976 the car was imported to the United States by racer and sports car collector Harley Cluxton. After it criss-crossed the Atlantic between additional owners, it landed in New Jersey with its current owner in 2007.
