Around 64 examples of the low-roof Boanos were created before the production facility was passed to Mario-Felice Boano's son-in-law, Ezio Ellena. The vehicles that followed, approximately 50 examples, are known as 'Ellenas'.

The Boano vehicles had style coupled with many creature comforts not found on other 250 GT vehicles produced during the same era, such as the Tour de France Ferraris. They had ground-pounding performance and excellent handling. A few were even used in competition.

This example is chassis number 0543 GT. Since new, it has been treated to a restoration that brought it back to its original condition. It has a black exterior with chrome accents, and a tan leather interior.

This Ferrari 250 GT Boano with chassis number 0543GT was the 56th one created of its type. It is a left hand drive vehicle with a low-roof coupe bodystyle. In 2007 this 250 GT Boano was brought to the Gooding & Company auction where it was estimated to sell for $600,000 - $700,000. As the gavel fell for the third in final time, bidding had not reached the value needed to satisfy the car's reserve; the lot remained unsold.

The following year it was on the upper concours lawn at the Cavallino Classic.
