It is my sincere hope to one day soon own one of these 2+2s. Hope that day is not "too late"....

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

+1: Just can't decide on the 250 GTE or a 330. Sort of leaning now on the 330 as better, and now priced near the 250.

It kills me.

I passed on a two headlight 330 a few years ago at $40K+-. It was a little rough but damn, I wish I hadn't.

I'm sure that car got dismantled for the motor and gits at the asking price.

Damn shame, but, I guess that's what happens when guys want reproductions of high end 12 cylinder cars.

agree. The two headlights are ok with me, but not many in that school like that year so they feel ok with canabalizing them.

What I don't understand in this day/age is with Ferrari's classiche program, that one would leave the originals alone, opt for Ferrari to re-create their re-issued engines making them much much better for resale than an mixed numbers car. One good thing about the new Ferrari program IMO.

This discussion sounds very similar to:

http://www.ferrarilife.com/forums/fe...er-330-gt.html

In terms of passing on 330's or 250s, the one that I am still kicking myself over is a 250 Lusso that I was offered for $250k 3 1/2 years ago.

I would rank the Luzzago thread as one of our all time top ten.

What's the price tag on one of those engines? Then you still need the rest of the drivetrain and a frame to build on.

Cutting up a 250 has to be cheaper than that.

seems to me you get what you paid for . expedience maybe less expensive but for resale it would not be as good as a classic new engine from the manufacturer where it was done to specs with a new valid serial number for the chassis so therefore having a new engine made is cheaper in the long run . No?
