1958 Ferrari 250 GT PF Project

1958 Ferrari 250 Pf Coupe Body

It makes us sad to see cars that someone has disassembled and then lost all ambition to put back together. This 1958 Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe looks to be one of those cases and we just hope that someone can piece it back together now. It is located in Connecticut and you can find it here on eBay with a BIN of $95,000 or the option to make an offer.

1958 Ferrari 250 Pf Coupe Body Side

The 250 PF was a beautiful car with clean simple lines. The design was by Pininfarina and the drive train was shared with the other 250 models. This body does show some rust in the floors and rockers. It is going to take a lot of work to get it back to its former glory, but it will be worth it when restored.

1958 Ferrari 250 Pf Coupe Parts

Here is an interesting shot of many of the parts laid out. There are a few parts missing that will need to be sourced. The best feature of this project is that Colombo V12 engine. At around 3 liters, it’s not a large engine, but it is very lightweight and is able to put out a lot of power for its size.

1958 Ferrari 250 Pf Coupe Interior Parts

Here are more parts on display. It would feel great to wrap our hands around that wood rimmed wheel and look down at that classic Ferrari badge in the center. We would love to own this automobile, but we think it might be better left to a Ferrari expert who was some deep pockets.

1958 Ferrari 250 Pf Coupe Seats

Here is a shot of the interior. As you can see, everything has been stripped. The leather seats are still there and actually don’t look too bad. In fact, they look very comfy. This car was meant to be a grand touring machine so it was designed to cover long distances fast in comfort. It also has racing heritage since it comes from the same lineage as the legendary 250 GTO.

This may not be the most desirable member in the 250 family tree, but it definitely deserves to be brought back to life and enjoyed. With top examples selling for around $265k it may be difficult to come out ahead on this one, but the right person may be able to make it work financially. The seller has included a gallery of 236 images that may help prospective buyers decide if this project is worth taking on. We wish the best to whoever takes this on and we are excited to see how it eventually turns out.

    Could there be a more ideal time to update the brakes to 4 wheel discs?

    If I had the funds I’d buy and restore this. Great driving car, have driven several. Who cares about coming out ahead, just drive it! It’ll appreciate in value like the 330GTC has, and then you’ll be fine. Oh, for want of $150k to buy and get started on this. Definitely someone who knows how to work on this would be able to really have a great project and enjoy it.

    Based in this design the Ford Mustang was created.

      Uh, no.

    I am always struck by how “modern” the 250 GT PF was. Remember this is for 1958; by comparison, think about what a ’58 Chevy looked like…

    • Jose Delgadillo

      I do think that Detroit took the GT coupe concept and turned it into something that could be built and priced for a mass audience. The public obviously responded with enthusiasm as over 400,000 Mustangs were sold the first year. Detroit was always around ten years behind in cribbing the exotic builders designs. Sure the Mustang couldn’t compete with the real thing, but I would rather drive than stand by the side of the road and dream.

    I have the money. But I don’t think I could survive the inevitable experience

    Sold for 65K. Way less than the original BIN price
