1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione

Arguably the most significant LWB California Spider ever built, this car – chassis 1603 GT – is a superlative dressed in 100% alloy.  With many desirable one-off competition features including the highly-developed 508 D chassis, covered headlights and the most powerful engine still fitted to a California Spider, a Tipo 168, this important California Ferrari has finished well at a spectrum of racing events including 5th overall at Sebring 12 Hours as well as Bahamas Speed Week, many times with famous drivers including George Reed and Alan Connell behind the wheel.  Noted as Estimate On Request, this car will be offered for public sale for the first time ever at the Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions in August.
