SWB Spyder
Chassis #: 2561 GT
This short wheelbase California Spyder, chassis number 2561 is the 19th of 55 built. The car was originally sold in Paris at Franco-Brittannic Autos. This car was ordered with many desirable options by Nano Da Silva Ramos, which included covered headlights and the competition option package which was a competition engine, lightweight 'ribbed' gearbox and an 8x32 rear axle ratio with limited slip. The car was delivered with a special order Alfa Romeo color called Blue Inverno Giulietta Sprint and red leather. The car also came with a radio, hardtop and seat belts. This car spent its life in Europe until 2002.

Restoration was completed in 2003, and the current owner has put 14,556 km on it since.

The 250 GT passo corto (short wheelbase, or SWB, of 2400 mm) Spyder California debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1960, and a total of 55 of them were built before production ended in February 1963. A rare factory original hardtop came with this SWB Spyder California when new. The car (serial number 2561 GT) went through an extensive restoration in 2004 and 2005 and won several major Concours awards afterwards, including the prestigious Louis Vuitton Classic Concours Award in 2006.

The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder with chassis number 2561GT is a left hand drive vehicle constructed of steel and features covered headlights and a competition engine. It was also given a limited slip differential, hardtop, seat belts, and a radio. It has chassis tipo 539, engine tipo 168, and gearbox tipo 539.

In 1961 it was purchased by Jo Setton. In 1963 it was owned by Jean-Pierre Chabert. In 1966 it was sold to Jean Redelle. In 1972 it was purchased by Charles Robert who later sold it to Jacques Bajol. Bajol entered the vehicle into the Ferrari Days at Modena bearing number 106.

In 1988 the car was sold to Henri Chambon. In 2002 it attended the Cavallino Classic under its latest owner, Peter S. Kalikow of New York.
