We are delighted to offer this beautiful, matching numbers 1962 Series I Ferrari 250 GTE for sale.

Our Ferrari 250 GTE is one of 954 Pininfarina bodied 2+2 coupes built during three years of production and is among 299 first series examples constructed during the model’s first two years. Chassis 2951 is said to have been delivered new in Italy before being imported to the US, where it spent time in Texas in the 1980's. The car was purchased by the previous owner in 2015 and subsequently received a mechanical refresh as well as a re-trim of its black leather interior, while additional work in the last two years includes a repaint in Rosso Rubino. Power is provided by a 3.0 liter Colombo V12 that breathes through triple Weber carburetors and is mated to a four speed manual transmission with electric overdrive. Additional features include servo assisted Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes, telescopic shock absorbers, 15” Borrani wire wheels and a Becker pushbutton radio.

Introduced at the 1960 Paris Motor Show, the 250 GTE carried over a modified version of the 2,600mm-wheelbase 508 chassis used in previous 250 variants. A more-forward engine placement allowed the accommodation of standard rear seats, a first for Ferrari. Produced in three series, the model featured Pininfarina bodywork combining steel construction with an aluminum hood and trunk panels.

Series I design features include slim inset headlight bezels, grille-mounted driving lights and chrome Superamerica-style tail light housings.

Borrani wire wheels were restored under previous ownership and are secured by three-eared knock-offs, while 185/70VR15 Michelin XWX tires are mounted all around.

The cabin was re-trimmed after the previous owner’s purchase with black leather over 2+2 seating and matching upholstery over the door panels, center tunnel and dash. Replacement carpeting is said to have been installed over sound deadening material, and the headliner was removed, cleaned and replaced. Additional work is said to have included a rebuild of the windshield wiper motor and replacement of the windshield washer pump, heater valve and left side window regulator.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel sits ahead of Veglia instrumentation including a 300-km/h speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer and an oil pressure gauge. The five digit odometer shows 67k kilometers (~41k miles), approximately 1,300 of which have been added under previous ownership. Instruments to the driver’s right include a clock and gauges monitoring oil temperature, coolant temperature, and fuel level, while a Becker push button radio is situated in the upper console.

The 3.0-liter Tipo 128 V12 features an aluminum block and aluminum cylinder heads with spark plugs positioned on the outer side of each bank as well as coil valve springs and individual intake ports. The triple Weber carburetors are said to have been rebuilt during the mechanical refresh under previous ownership, as were the mechanical fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. Additional work performed prior to us acquiring the car included a water pump rebuild, cleaning and resealing of the fuel tank, a cooling system flush, an oil change, as well as  replacement of the ignition points and condenser, fuel filters, fuel-level sender, thermostat and all coolant hoses.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via an all synchromesh four speed manual transmission with Laycock de Normanville overdrive. The gearbox is said to have been refreshed with replacement main shaft bushings under previous ownership, and the clutch assembly was replaced. Suspension work during the project reportedly included rebuilds of the Koni shock absorbers and replacement of various bushings, while the steering gearbox was rebuilt and the kingpins were replaced. The four outlet exhaust system is also said to have been replaced.

Our Ferrari 250 GTE is an excellent driver and is ready for immediate enjoyment!
