Ferrari Classiche announced this past week they are in the process of returning a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 once owned by Steve McQueen back to factory condition. McQueen famously took delivery of the car while he was in San Francisco filming Bullitt.

After the car had left the King of Cool's possession the car had its roof chopped off—perhaps when the owner was unable to track down one of the 10 cars that left Maranello as 275 GTB/4 NART Spyders. McQueen's Ferrari recently changed hands and the cars new owner decided to return it to the factory to have its roof rebuilt.

The Ferrari Classiche department was opened in 2006 "specifically to provide restoration and maintenance services, technical assistance and Certificates of Authenticity to owners of classic Ferraris" It is located in a former Foundry building at Maranello where, according to Autoblog, they have dealt with 3300 classic Ferraris since opening.


We don't know what is in store for McQueen's 275 GTB/4 once it is returned to factory specification, but we can't wait to see where it appears first.

How will that affect value?

Will it lose some of it's McQueen Cool or will it regain the McCoolness it lost when its roof was chopped? Will it gain additional value added being restored to factory spec?

How many V6 Mustangs could I buy and what's the ring time (before and after roofing)?
