With 954 cars, the Ferrari 250 GT 2+2 or GTE was a tremendous success for Ferrari. The cars were produced between 1961 to1963 and were considered the first family car from Ferrari.
Exterior: Very close to flawless paint on this Ferrari that was painted ten years ago in its original colour. Perfect chrome, glass and rubber details all around the car. Without discussion, the best choice of original colour for a Ferrari 250 GTE in 1962. Borrani wheels in perfect condition with correct time period tyres (Michelin XWX).
Interior: A leather interior in a car like this Ferrari is something that just becomes more and more beautiful every year if it is well maintained. And, when the day comes that you should replace it, it is like starting over. It will take another 40 or so years to achieve that feeling of sitting into an original Ferrari interior. Even the shelf under the rear window is still covered in the original leather. This piece would have never survived for so many years if this car had lived in the southern parts of Europe where the sun is stronger. Carpets and headliner also in very good condition. All the beautiful instruments in this car still look like new with no fading from the sun! Also, they are in perfect working order. In the trunk, we have the original tool bag with the original leather belts to secure your suitcases when you are off for a grand tour of Europe in style.
Engine: Engine had a complete rebuild by Ferrari specialist in Italy. After this, the car is estimated to have covered around 10,000km. It is today in perfect order both visually and in performance. Also, gearbox, clutch, overdrive, and rear axle are in perfect working order. All bushings, rubbers etc in the front and rear end have also been replaced which makes the car handle like a Ferrari on the road.
History: This car was presented at the motor show in Stockholm in 1962 and the first owner was a company by the name Åhlen and Holm. Mr Gösta Åhlen was a very well-known business man in Sweden running a chain of department stores by the name of Åhlens. The owner’s history of the car is fully documented. The original handbook, and all literature that came with the car from new are still intact including a Swedish owner’s manual that was translated and typed out by hand and supplied from the Swedish importer at the time.
