In the late 1950\'s it was determined that Ferrari would develop its first real 4-seater offering to help broaden the market of potential buyers. The Pininfarina designed 250 GTE 2+2 was first introduced at the 1960 Paris Auto Show. 250 Series Ferraris all utilized one of two chassis, either a short version (94.5 inches) or the long version (102.4 inches), upon which the GTE was built. It utilized the same Colombo 3.0 liter V-12 engine as much of the rest of the 250 lineup, although in this guise it made an estimated 237 hp. The 250 GTE sold well, with almost 1,000 cars constructed by Pininfarina from the time it was prototyped in 1959 until it was replaced by the similarly styled 330 America at the end of 1963. Today, the 250 GTE 2+2 remains an elegant, well driving, and important piece of Ferrari\'s automotive heritage. Chassis #3739 was completed on July 27, 1962 as a left-hand drive, U.S. specification example in Blu Sera over Grigio leather with instruments in miles and Koni shock absorbers. In August 1962, the Ferrari was delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors of New York and sold locally, with record of it being owned by Ted Goldman of White Plains, NY. Documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini and Ferrari Market Letter, ownership history picks up in the early 1970\'s, still residing in New York, eventually moving to the Midwest, New England and ultimately Colorado where it would reside under caring and enthusiast ownership for three decades. The GTE\'s long-term and most recent caretaker, Mr. Jones of Englewood, Colorado acquired the Ferrari on October 11, 1988, with 48,033 recorded miles from Classic Auto Sales of Omaha, Nebraska. It\'s said the car was in nice driver quality condition when purchased, though Mr. Jones determined that a full restoration should be carried out. The commissioned full nut-and-bolt restoration began in July 1990 by T\'s Sunrise of Englewood Colorado with body, frame, and paint being contracted out to 3R Automotive of Englewood, Colorado. According to the Marcel Massini History Report #3739 had poor body repairs so Mr. Jones purchased another Series II body #064 in excellent condition from Joe Marchetti\'s International Autos Limited of Chicago and replaced the body during the restoration. The restoration, a 7-year endeavor was completed to exceptional standards, with a photo and invoice documented file recording the process. Since the completion of the restoration in June of 1997, the car has covered a mere 2500 miles. Even though the restoration is now over 20 years old, the condition remains outstanding with excellent fit and finish attesting to the high-quality workmanship performed. The exterior\'s paint has a deep rich color and smooth, consistent finish. The body itself is laser straight and smooth with excellent gaps and fitment all around. The PininFarina body number 064 is found stamped on the hood, trunk floor and inner fender wells. All chrome and brightwork is brilliant, as is the glass - clean and clear around. It appears that most of the glass is original to the car, with correct Securit markings found on the side windows. Correct Marchal headlights are in excellent and working condition, as are all lights, weather and safety equipment. All 5
