Ferrari 250 California Sypder

This 250 'California' Spyder was bought by a customer from a Paris auction house,and we were given the job of totally restoring it.

When it was stripped and the paint removed there wasnt a lot of the bodywork left. Many new panels were made, and there was a lot of metalwork under the 'skin'.The car was then painted in Ferrari rosso red. The engine, gearbox and axle were all rebuilt while the body was being painted. The brakes proved to be a problem to rebuild.

At some time the car had been converted to disk brakes, and the magnesium brake callipers were porous, so they slowly let air and water in to the system. To resolve this we commissioned an 'original' set of drum brakes for the car, solving our problem, and returning the car to its original spec.
