Last week, for instance, someone paid $35,000 on Bring a Trailer for this wreck of a 250. For reference, that’s more than what the real average Joes of the world pay for their daily drivers - we're talking new, fancy, and fully equipped cars.
So, what did this collector get for their money?
We’re told the body of the 250 lost its chassis (number 1543GT) and entrails sometime around 2014 for undisclosed reasons. With all that hardware out of the way, the empty carcass was cut into four pieces for some reason.
So, we have the body, one of a 250 GT Pinin Farina, but also some other pieces of hardware: doors, deck lid, hood, rear bumper, fuel tank, and a couple of window frames. To get as most as possible from this sale, the previous owner also threw in interior door panels, low-back bucket seats, and some trim pieces.
Naturally, there is only one thing someone could do with this body: rebuild it around some functional hardware. Now, there are two ways to do that. The complicated and lengthy path is trying to locate the original missing pieces and putting them back in. The second, easier one, is to cram something else entirely in there, but that’s something neither us nor Ferrari’s legal teams would be happy with.
