1961 Ferrari 250 GT
Sold for $1,517,500 at 2019 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
The second-series Ferrari 250 GT cabriolet had an outside-plug version of the Colombo V-12 engine, designated Tipo 128F, open headlamps, elongated taillamp lenses, and a slightly more rounded nose. During the three years of production, 200 examples of the second-series cabriolets were produced.

This particular example was completed by the factory in November of 1961 and delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors in New York. It was the 150th of the 200 Series II examples constructed. It was finished in the color scheme of Verde Italver (6012) over Natural Franzi leather (NR1) and sold new to its first owner, Angelo Roma of New York, in January 1962. By the mid-1960s, it was residing on the West Coast in the care of Arthur L. True of Spokane, Washington. Mr. True would later bequeath most of his collection to the Henry Ford Museum in 1967, however chassis number 3009 GT remained in Washington. By the 1980s it was owned by Willard Quinn III, also of Spokane. By 1989 the car had returned across the Atlantic and was purchased by Erich Traber of Switzerland. Mr. Traber retained the car for a decade and had it painted gunmetal grey and retrimmed the interior in red leather.

It was sold to a collector in Japan in November of 2004, where it remained for several years, then returned to the United States in 2010 and given a full restoration. More recently, the car has received further cosmetic work, including being repainted in Nero, along with an engine rebuild.

This vehicle retains its original engine, transmission, and rear differential and is currently undergoing Ferrari Classiche certification.
