It's amazing to see a one-owner Ferrari 250 Lusso in 2014, let alone a barn find. Patina has never looked better and you only need around $1,400,000 - $1,800,000 to call it yours.
This image of a "running" 250 Lusso barn find surfaced on DK Engineering's Facebook, and guess what - RM Auctions will have the car at Monterey next month. Here's what they know about this very special find:
According to Ferrari, the car offered here, chassis number 5233 GT, was originally delivered to the Roman dealer in November of 1963, finished in Azzuro (Italiver 19278M) with Nuvola interior. It is believed that it was purchased as a new car four months later by a Pakistani businessman involved in onyx mining. The gentleman was a frequent visitor to the Mediterranean area on business trips and, during one of those trips, acquired his new Ferrari in Rome. After the journey to Pakistan, the car arrived in its new home and was registered in Karachi on May 5, 1964.
The Lusso has remained in the same family until now and therefore for nearly 50 years! During that time it is believed to have covered only 26,000 kilometers. The Lusso only left Pakistan for the first time in 50 years in 2014 when it was sent to a marque specialist for an inspection. As such it has been confirmed that the car's engine, gearbox, and rear axle are all matching-numbers components to this chassis. During the family's ownership, the body was refinished in traditional Rosso Corsa, but the interior remains intact and appears to be the car's original trim.
Every car has a story, but this fifty-year old Scaglietti Ferrari's is only beginning.
