Last in the current series of Ferrari 250 GT/L Lusso series of blogs in the example seen by Geoffrey Horton at Danville Concours d’Elegance last year.
The red interior helped me identify this vehicle as probably being chassis number #5353GT built in 1964.
Little is known about the car prior to 2010 when it was offered for sale with 61,000 Kms on the clock for $575,000.
The current owner has shown this car at several Concours d’Elegance events and won the KCBS Award at Palo Alto Concour’s d’Elegance last year.
Unlike the 250 GT Lusso #5143GT I looked at a couple of weeks ago #5353GT was last sold with a complete set of tools.
Thanks for joining me on this “Complete Set Of Tools” edition of “Gettin’ a li’l psycho on tyres”, I hope you will join me again tomorrow for a look at a prototype Gilbern. Don’t forget to come back now !
I’ll let farmer Hugh James the owner of today’s featured 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L chassis #5097GT tell you about his car at the end of today’s blog personally.
While looking for details about the car I stumbled across an old thread at Ferrari Chat that listed over 1000 colours, many with codes that have been offered and or used on the cars from Maranello.
The list includes several variations of the same code but it was interesting to find that there have been as many as 8 variations of the Verde Pino seen on Mr James car at Auto Italia Brooklands a couple of years ago. If you happen to know which Verde Pino #5097GT is painted please do not hesitate to chime in below.
Here is Mr James’s story of how he acquired the car :-
Thanks for joining me on this “Which Verde Pino ?” edition of “Gettin’ a li’l psycho on tyres” I hope you will join me again tomorrow when I’ll be looking at the second model to be offered by Gilbern. Don’t forget to come back now !
