CARLYLE MOTORS IS VERY PROUD TO OFFER THIS STUNNING 1960 FERRARI 250 GT CALIFORNIA SPYDER REPLICA.
VIN# RI 1724
"Ferris Buellers Day Off". The center of that film featured a replica of the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. These completely hand-built cars, then originally designed and manufactured by Modena Design and Research of El Cajon, California, took approximately 6 months each to build.
This 1960 Modena 250 GT Reproduction of the short wheel base California Spyder was completed by Modena in 1991 (titled as a 1991) and represents a unique opportunity to acquire what is becoming one of the most sought after 1960 Modena Spyder Replicas due to it's limited production, movie fame & lower cost.
It was treated to a frame-on restoration approximately 3 years ago. The entire drivetrain removed. The original, relatively docile engine was replaced with a Brand New Ford Motorsports Full-Roller 302 V8 with the E303 Camshaft- Topped off with an equally Brand New 8 Stack IGLESE 48mm Induction System.

As with all Carbureted Induction Systems of the Ingles/Weber Style, Tuning is Important and is Based on Multiple Conditions. Be Aware that The Tuning for Your Geographical Area is Most Likely Different than Another.
But, owning and driving this type of system has its rewards when mastered. It is not at all difficult and many find that tuning their own system becomes an enlightening and rewarding experience.
Factory instructions will be included for the Inglese should you need to make any adjustments. Inglese also has a technical support team that is very helpful.
In summary, there is a lot of information to digest and learn about this very rare car. You have a very rare opportunity to own a great car at a much more affordable price than a real Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. This is not a kit car. This is a hand-made, real Modena.
Very few of these cars ever come onto the market and this particular car is one of the very best known to exist.
