Very rare 1956 Ferrari, steel bodied Boano 250GT low roof coupe. This car is in remarkable original condition and has been preserved wonderfully. S/N 0623 is one of 64 built, and is quite possibly one of the last surviving unrestored examples left. Many of these were sadly cut up for parts in the 1970’s and 1980’s for parts and re-body replicas of TDF’s and other specials, not leaving many cars intact. The car is very complete, and still wears nearly all of its original paint and interior. S/N 0623 has been off the road and sitting quietly in storage since 1969, with only 73,978 KM showing on the clock. The body and structure of this wonderful Ferrari have never suffered any collision or rot damage, with only minor surface rust showing. The prior owner had brought the car out of storage and had the engine removed for rebuild, and some of the chrome work removed for re-plating. He then, during that process, decided to sell the car due to his age. We were then able to secure 0623, which has also been in storage since. The wheels have been restored, a new stainless exhaust, new pistons, gasket set, and other items are among the parts purchased to bring 0623 back to life. The starter and generator were also totally rewound and rebuilt. This sale represents a very rare and unique opportunity to acquire what could possibly be the last remaining unrestored examples of one of the most iconic 1950’s street V12 Ferrari cars produced.
