250 GTE 2+2 SERIES II, S/N 3739 GT (1962). Red with tan interior. Estimate $375,000 to $425,000. Delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors. Its early ownership is unknown, but it is known to have been in good driver-quality condition when its 30-year owner purchased it in October 1988 with 48,033 miles on the odometer. Two years later, a full nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration was begun by T’s Sunrise and 3R Automotive in Englewood, Colorado, during which time the original body was replaced with correct Pininfarina Series II Body No. 64, the number stamped on the hood, trunk floor and inner fender walls. The restoration was quite thorough; the entire drivetrain, including engine, was completely rebuilt and the entire car was refinished to excellent condition. Just 2,500 miles since it was completed in June 1997. Correct Securit windows, Marchal headlights, a restored Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio and new 185VR15 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 tires on chromed Borrani wire wheels. Gleaming paint, glass and brightwork, concours-quality engine compartment and undercarriage detailing, and a pristine tan leather interior with correct 250-series instruments. Owner’s manual copy, jack, toolkit, emergency equipment, restoration records and historical documentation that includes Marcel Massini and Ferrari Market Letter history reports. Lot S187. Not sold at $250,000 high bid.
250 TR/61 SPIDER CORSA REPLICA, S/N 8109 GT. Red with blue seats. Estimate $575,000 to $675,000. This Ferrari started life as a 1965 330 GT 2+2 and was delivered to Jacques Swaters’ Garage Francorchamps in Brussels, Belgium. It made its way to the U.S., where it lived until 1995 when it was acquired by Motorima Coachbuilding Company of Rydaholm, Sweden. Motorima then proceeded to rebody the car as an exacting replica of the 1961 250 TR61 with a handcrafted aluminum body fashioned using factory drawings. Today, this stunning TR61 recreation features a true 3967cc Ferrari V-12 engine (S/N 6251 GT) that transmits 300 HP through its 5-speed transmission and recently received an engine-out reseal and service in 2020 by DriverSource in Houston, Texas. The car is accompanied by various pieces of documentation, including copies of the original invoice, build sheets and factory documents, a mechanical restoration photo file and Marcel Massini history report. The Ferrari also comes with its Suixtil drivers bag, driving gloves and Pacto helmet, original artwork by Wayne Huffaker and original MG-built TR “Shark Nose” Ferrari licensed pedal car, circa 1961. Lot S144. Not sold at $450,000 high bid.

By the late 1990s, the car was in La Jolla, California, and was red with a cream-colored leather interior. Recently, within about the last 1,000 miles, the engine was rebuilt by John Hajduk’s Motorkraft Ltd. The paintwork is very nice with straight body panels and excellent fit and door shut. The glass and lenses are excellent, and the chrome is very nice with minimal evidence of aging. This example retains the often-missing lower fiberglass radiator shroud.
