Ferris Buellar's Ferrari - 1961 Modena Ferrari GT 2501 of 32 Factory Built Modena Design (NOT A KIT) 500 Horse Power This 1961 Modena Ferrari GT250 California spider was built by Mark Goyette at the Modena Design factory, l Cajon. "Mr. Goyette and Trey Griffith confirmed this is the actual" #14 car. The rectangular steel tube frame was designed by the late Bob Webb, n accomplished Indy car fabricator who worked on Brooks Stevens' 1952 Excalibur race cars and later on Roger Penske's all-conquering Zerex Special .Mounting independentfront suspension and a solid rear axle with 4-link attachments, Panhard rod and Torsion bars, ebb's chassis was described by Car and Driver as "remarkably rigid, ore so in fact than the real 1961 Ferrari".
An early mention of the new creation in "Car and Driver" magazine drew the attention of Hollywood director John Hughes, ho was in the planning stages of making Ferris Bueller's Day Off starring Mathew Broderick, ia Sara, harlie Sheen & Alan Ruck, n which a ModenaDesign sports car would have a pivotal role.
The Modena Ferrari's are very rare and rarely come on the market.These are a very sought after car and are collected by Ferrari owners worldwide as there were a very limited number of them made by Modena. 32 to be exact. This has only made these cars ever more popular because how well they were made. All these factors made the Modena recreations collectible in their own right and very unique. (even if odd. part of Ferrari History).
This is a great example of a very unique and rare collector car with super low documented miles.
Registered and titled as a 61, ith the correct Ferrari VIN plate and is number 14 of the 32 built by Modena. Stamped by Trey Griffith at the Modena factory, his Modena Ferrari 250 GT Short Wheel base California Spyder will leave anyone speechless
The last Modena GT250 (used in the movie) sold at Mecum last year for $265,000 and that was not restored (after buyers/sellers/auction fees, ossibly $300,000). We believe that we have priced this one accordingly without the hype of a TV auction.
This is a complete (documented) frame off restoration and has done only 100 miles since completion and only 4 miles on the new engine. Every nut and bolt is brand new and stainless steel. This is a NO EXPENSE spared build
