1960 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder

The Ferrari Spyder California was the result of a request from Ferrari's two United States distributors, Luigi Chinetti and John von Neumann. They believed that the American market needed a convertible version of the Ferrari 250 GT TdF, something more powerful than the 250 GT Cabriolet already being built at Maranello. Once a deal had been agreed upon between Enzo Ferrari and his U.S. agents, production began in 1958. During that first year, 14 long wheelbase Spyder Californias were built; the rest of the 50 LWB Spyders were built between 1959 and 1960.

This car is the third from last to be built and, as a result, it was equipped with some of the features of the short-wheelbase Californias that followed, including the desirable 'outside-plug' engine and factory disc brakes that became standard on the SWB cars. This car is further distinguished by its original factory hardtop.
