1759GT has the distinction of being a Competizione model prepared by Ferrari for NART to enter into the 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Drivers Ed Hugus and Augie Pabst placed a remarkable 7th overall and the car was seldom used afterward.

1759GT is presented after a restoration completed by GTO Engineering in 2005 who refitted the original engine.

Gooding & Company describe the oppurtunity: “While any alloy-bodied, competition SWB Berlinetta would be regarded as a top-tier collector car, this exceptionally original Le Mans veteran is undoubtedly a star among the best.”

3359GT is a steel-bodied Lusso model presented in its original colors of Grigio Argento (Code 16003) with Red Connolly Vaumol leather (Code VM 3086).

It was the centerpiece of Jean-Pierre Slavic’s collection. He had it restored by Ferrari Classiche with work done by Carrozzeria Autosport of Modena.

Gooding & Company describe the car: “As now offered, 3359 GT is spectacular throughout and, according to recent testing by Gooding & Company specialists, it is every bit as exhilarating to drive as this Ferrari model’s sizable legend suggests. Finished in its originally specified and very handsome color combination, 3359 GT was recently inspected by historian Keith Bluemel, who stated that the SWB is “a very well-presented example of the model.” Offered with the Ferrari Classiche Red Book, Mr. Bluemel’s written report, Marcel Massini’s history report, and a wealth of other excellent documentation, a tool roll, and an original sales brochure, 3359 GT is one of the most interesting and excellent examples of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta in existence.”
