1960 Ferrari Other
This Ferrari 250 California Spyder replica is like those seen in the 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". Itwas builtby Modena Design & Development in El Cajon, CA and first titledin 1988 in CA. According to the best information, Modena Design was only in business from 1987 through 1989 and, of the 50 that were produced, only 38 still exist, this being one of them. This makes the car recognizable, rare, and an opportunity to acquire a unique and rather unusual piece of Ferrari-related history.A sturdy fiberglass body is fitted on a steel tube frame with a 289 V8 Ford engine, Tremec 5 speed manual transmission, and Ford rear axle. Disk brakes and coil over shocks are at all fourBoranni-style knock-off wire wheels. Ignition has been updated to electronic multi-spark capacitive discharge with an electronic distributor that results in a fast car thatalways starts immediately and isa pleasure to drive. The original Smiths tach did not work with the electronic ignition; it was replaced with a modern tach. The original Smiths tach will be provided to the purchaser who wishes to maintain complete originality.
A Nardi steering wheel complements the interior which, along with the trunk area, has received a $6,000 restoration of the finest glove leather. These improvements have been the limits of the restoration effortsby the current owner.The car was purchased by the current owner from a Jaguar/Land Rover dealer in Bellevue, WA and is now located in Germantown, TN. When it was titled in TN, the year model was changed to 1960 to avoid current and future issues with emissions regulations.Local pickup is available or shipping can be arranged within the continental US.
A non-refundable deposit of $500.00 (US) via PayPal is required within 48 hours of auction close. The car will be turned over to the purchaser upon payment of the balance due via Cashier's Check, Cash, orLoan check from the eBay FinancingCenter.
The bottom line: Just as it is, this is a beautiful, unique, high performance car that draws a lot of attention and can be driven reliably anywhere.
