Started off in 2013 as a neglected project car when we purchased it. We had body work professionally done (body filler removed, dents pulled, new floor pans), gutted the interior, and added a new 1600cc engine. This car has disc brakes in the front, has been converted to 12 volts, and it has a nice alternator. Rust free car, new headliner, updated audio system, complete interior with custom matching rear seat to match the custom framed "baja" style seats. Mileage is to be determined, engine must have less than 20,000 miles. Replaced engine core two years ago. Transmission is in good shape, steering is relatively tight, brakes work well. This car is around 90% complete, if not more. Car runs fantastic and has been kept in a heated garage since its restoration. Being honest to save you the trouble of finding out later. This is a good buy based on my research, and seldom do you come across a Ghia in this condition. Paint is a 2015 Hyundai "champagne beige metallic". It goes without saying this car gets alot of attention, and usually wins best ghia and best moderate resto-mod at any show.

Formula One announced last week that it will race at the famed Mugello circuit in September. That’s a thrill as the Tuscany circuit is well-known as one of Ferrari’s test tracks and has a great heritage of racing history. Could this signal F1’s return to the more classic, ‘natural’ circuits? Formula 1, in its now […]

For the 1961 model year, Ferrari produced only 55 examples of its 250 GTE Series I 2+2 sports coupes with right-hand drive. The company’s first 2+2 coupe was special enough to make its debut as the marshal’s car for the 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans. Recently, one of those cars has been discovered after […]
