The Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II by Pinin Farina was a true gentleman's high-speed touring car. They were well appointed luxury cars exquisitely trimmed and appointed to meet Ferrari's demanding and discerning clientele. The trunk provided adequate space to accommodate luggage for two for a long-weekend trip.

In 1959, Ferrari introduced a second-series cabriolet at the 1959 Paris Motor Show and brought with it several stylistic and mechanical updates over its predecessor. They had open headlamps with a slightly more rounded nose and rear fenders with elongated tail-lamp lenses. The interior offered slightly more space, and the trunk was slightly larger as well. Disc brakes could now be found at all four corners. Power was from the Colombo V-12 engine, designated Tipo 128F. Rather than in between the V as in prior iterations, the spark plugs were relocated to the V-12's outside surfaces, and the coil-valve springs were substituted for hairpins. This configuration allowed for more head studs per cylinder and non-siamesed porting.

By the time production of the 250 GT Cabriolet Series II had come to an end in mid-1962, 200 examples had been constructed, far outselling the first series of 250 GT Cabriolets.

This particular examples is the 53rd second series cabriolet produced. It was completed on July 10th of 1960, finished in Oro Longchamps (Max Meyer 16288) over Connolly Naturale leather and vinyl upholstery. It was originally delivered through Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut, to a Mr. Shapiro, who soon traded it back. It was then resold to Arthur L. Montgomery. Later in the 1960s it was sold through a Georgia dealer to Jerry Farguahar, who passed it to John W. Finley of Alpharetta in 1971. While in Mr. Finley's care, the cabriolet was restored to its present appearance, in Rosso Corsa with tan leather upholstery, by Skip McCabe Automotive of Mundelein, Illinois. The work was completed in 1996, and was purchased for its current owner's collection where it has resided ever since.

Currently the car show s 47,736 miles. It has an empty tool bag, hammer, and jack, as well as a reprinted owner's manual, and the correct Borrani wire wheel spare in the trunk.
