Ed- Welcome to Ferrari Life. 550 prices have firmed lately for excellent cars, especially those with Scaglietti options like Daytona seats, leather rear shelf, colored calipers, FHP, and Barchetta wheels. One well equipped 550 in California just sold for $105K, kind of defining the top of the price list. Prices are definitely overlapping with 575s.
So expect to pay $70-100K for a good 550, depending on mileage, color, options and, most of all, condition. Many of the options only became available later in production, probably in the CY 99 timeframe.
There are good threads on comparisons of the 550 and the 575M, and you can glean a lot of info from those. If you go to ferraridatabase.com, you can download 550 owners manuals and workshop manuals.
Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125
Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
