This Lusso, part of a long-term collection for the past 30 years, stands in immaculate numbers-matching and roadworthy condition. Purchased in 1985 with a meticulously-documented history of ownership, this chassis has traveled only 16,340 miles.
As a vehicle, this 250 GT has been maintained in near original condition, both mechanically and aesthetically. The window glass, sheet metal and ALTO-type light fixtures remain in original and immaculate condition as a result of dedicated efforts from the current owners.
Looking inside, the Lusso’s interior is in remarkable original condition, with the leather luggage straps and upholstery supple and un-faded. The careful wear and patina that has developed over the past 52 years serves only to add value to this Ferrari, a detail that cannot authentically be reproduced in restoration. It exemplifies the definition of preservation and we love it.
Mechanically, the Lusso’s 60 degree, 2.9-liter Colombo V12 remains in excellent original condition as a result of an aviation-grade, low-lead, gasoline diet. Having never been exposed to ethanol fuel mixes, the original Weber carburetors remain in-place and undamaged.
Offered as a piece of automotive lore and a rare investment opportunity, this 1963 250 GT has won over our hearts as automotive enthusiasts, and it will do the same for its new owner. This exclusive offer will be a rewarding purchase on a number of levels as it will add prestige, variety, character and value to any collection it enters.
