Matt Fellowes Feb 21, 2012

Bob Jones Feb 21, 2012
Needs a fart can, black 3-spoke rims, tinted windows, and some monster energy stickers.

Matt Fellowes Feb 21, 2012
Needs bigger rims ...... Say .. 18's lol
Benni Serious Feb 21, 2012
Like Ian said. I would not restore it. I just would make it road legal again. But i would leave the outside and inside like it is. A Car with visible history and character!
Chris Penza Feb 21, 2012
If I got this I would restore the interior only where it needs repair. But of course the exterior needs a major clean up
Kai Andrew Carlson Feb 21, 2012
Like the rat rod idea!
Jake Knickmeyer Feb 21, 2012
I would turn it into a rat rod just to piss off all the old Ferrari collectors.
Johnny Hoover Feb 21, 2012
I would buy it that thing is sweet

@Sebastian you say that but if you have the money, £160,000 into this car and it would be worth millions... Worth it to me...
Phillip Greene Feb 21, 2012
I hear you not like its an old stingray its just a forien car
Sebastian Grey Feb 21, 2012

Description: So CarBuzz readers, is it worth the time and investment? The Ferrari 250 GTE takes center stage and goes under the hammer at Bonhams' auction, scheduled for March 3rd.

Eh I would cut a hole in the hood and drop a bbc in there
Dillon Dixon Feb 21, 2012
With the original paint. The blue stripes were faded and rough. I would take this thing and just clean it up and then do absolutely nothing. Just make it run and enjoy it!
Dillon Dixon Feb 21, 2012
Cars aren't always worth more when they are restored. Collectors tend to pay much more for cars that are in it's original condition. Don't believe me? There was an original 65 Shelby GT350 sold on barret Jackson for $350,000. It was a barn find...
Herman Sletsjøe Singsaas Feb 21, 2012
If I had the money I wouldn't doubt it. I would buy it in an instant and restore it. Just imagine how much I cuold have with it. And it's going to be worth much more if u restore it. I love Ferrari and I think that about 160000£ is chrap for this 1
Sebastian Grey Feb 21, 2012
The price is superfluous and entitled and I feel bad for the sucker who buys this rolling dumpster.
Mathew Beames Feb 21, 2012
Such a nice shape! Id try it if I had the money.
Matt Moeller Feb 21, 2012
It is a wonderful car, I would love to restore it.
Payne Hodges Wilson Feb 21, 2012 Plus it would be nice to have in the collection for awhile, as a nice Sunday driver or garage center piece.
Payne Hodges Wilson Feb 21, 2012
I think that for someone who has money that can be tied up for awhile it could be a huge investment. Once restored it could definitely bring more money than what the overhead would be, given that you don't have toady bumps in the road restoring...
James Hannan Feb 21, 2012
If had the money and the time I'd love to restore it to its former glory. It would be a nice way to spend a Sunday restoring you ferrari
Zain Sheikh Feb 21, 2012
If money was no concern if restoring for personal use then yes but if going for auction might need to take cost in consideration when restoring
Nick Schnee Feb 21, 2012
Hmm... I think I wouldn't buy it. It DOES look nice and stuff, but I'd rather get an Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Roadster for the money.
Yohann Black Apr 29, 2013
looks like a aston db5
Chris Penza Feb 21, 2012
I love all Italian cars from this era
Dylan Bruder Feb 21, 2012
Talk about hanging exhaust
Matthew Crighton Feb 21, 2012
If i can ever aford a farrari, i want that steering wheel for it.
Matthew Paul Feb 21, 2012
Look a Ferrari with a stick! A true relic
Logan LeMonnier Feb 21, 2012
And I love that steering wheel
Logan LeMonnier Feb 21, 2012
Honestly it just looks dusty
Chris Penza Feb 21, 2012
The interior isn't as bad as I thought. The wheel is fine, the seats need to be reupholstered, and the floor and dash are pretty bad
Skyler White Feb 22, 2012
Whoever put those fram filters in this deserves to get shot.
Andy Agus Feb 22, 2012
Why do they have a picture of the Enzo's engine?
Matt Fellowes Feb 21, 2012
Service needed maybe ?!
Jimmy Alonzo Feb 21, 2012
Well this is a 63' so id expect it the block to look like this
Chris Penza Feb 21, 2012
I bet it'll run if you change the oil
Justen Truhett Feb 21, 2012
I had a 79 cutlass that looked like that.
Justin ChalkChalk Smalyinator Feb 21, 2012
That would look awesome cleaned.
