One of just 453 Series I examples built to left-hand drive specification, chassis 6685 was supplied new by Luigi Chinetti Motors Inc of Greenwich, Connecticut. It finally found it’s way to the UK in July 1988 The previous collector owner took Custody 18 years later.
The Ferrari was fundamentally sound and complete but in need of restoration. Something of a perfectionist with many other rare Ferrari’s in his stable, he chose to have the Ferrari stripped back to bare metal without concern to the financial viability of his actions. Accompanying photos show that new inner and outer sills were painstakingly crafted for the car as were new floor sections and various bodywork repair panels. Re-sprayed in its initial Dark Red livery and re-trimmed in Light Tan leather with Red carpets, chassis 6685 also had its bumpers re-chromed, the original Borrani wire wheels rejuvenated and stainless steel brightwork re-polished. The steering, suspension and brakes were all properly attended to in
July 2009 and a new stainless steel exhaust was fitted. Since then the car has further benefitted a thorough engine and gearbox overhaul and engine bay detailing at the hands of marque specialist Vic Cartmel some three years later, this lovely example has enjoyed a far more extensive and higher quality restoration than most of its surviving siblings. Offered for sale with UK V5C Registration Document, 330 Register history print, `no advisories' MOT certificate valid until October 2017. We have a large photo file of the vehicle, including the underside and restoration available for interested parties, overseas enquiries are welcomed and we will assist with transportation.
