Comments:

The Ferrari 250 GT Boano has been delivered to the US in 1957 where it has had

four known owners until it was sold into a major German Ferrari collection in the

beginning of the nineties. From 1989 until 1991 it benfitted from a complete nut

and bolt restoration leading to a Blue Ribbon and Platinum Award at the most

selective Ferrari Oweners Club Concours at Meadow Brook/USA. In this time it

was offered for sale with only 46 000 mls on the speedo. While it has been part

of the German private Ferrari collection it joined as well a couple of

Concours d'Elegance with a 1st OA at the Italia at Zandvoort/Netherlands and

the FOC UK Concours Silverstone/England with a 1st place for the oversea cars.


 

In the nineties it has been serviced and detailed at the famous workshop of the

Ferrari specialist of Terry Hoyle in England. After a couple of years in Germany

we had the pleasure to sell it into a small but very sophisticated Ferrari

collection in the Netherlands in 2001. The Boano has been used frequently by its

new owner while it shared its nice home beside a 250 GT/L Lusso and a 250 GT

Pininfarina Cabriolet and as well an early 195 Ghia.


It might be very interesting for the concerned enthusiast to step into the history

of the Ferrari 250 GT Boano. The factory of Mario Boano has only produced very

few 250 GT which has been designed by Pininfarina. We have only a very limited

number of just 67 cars carrying this pretty body. We have to devide this number

into approximately 21 cars which has been produced in alloy and 46 cars which

received their steel body. The latest research brought to light that only 38 Ferrari

250 GT Boano are still in existence. So we can assure that the Boano are one of

the rarest models out of the fifties especially when they carry their aluminum

skins.


One of the most interesting aspects which makes the Boano desirable is the fact

that they have been built up with the same technical components as the famous

Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France and the Ferrari 250 GT California Spider LWB. The

Boano GT's have the same frame called Tipo 508 and the original Colombo

series V12 inside plug engine Tipo 128 B. They have the same suspension and

as well the same drum brakes. And the examples carrying the aluminum body

have the same weight as the alloy bodied 250 GT Tour de France. Some of

the Boano have quite an interesting race history and have been used in the

Mille Miglia 1956 and as well in 1957.


Today the Boano is still in its near to perfect condition. The engine sounds great

without any smoke coming from the exhaust having lots of torque. There is no

vibration or any noise coming from the gearbox or differential. Everything works

properly as it should. The paint job and chrome are still in fantastic condition,

the interior and especially the dashboard looks like new. And the engine

compartment looks after all this years as well flawlessly.


 All the numbers (numero interna) of the engine, gearbox and differential have

been checked by and  certified by Ferrari in its "Certificazione di autenticita"

which has been suplied in 2009.

This Boano carries the chassis number # 0675 which is stated as  the last Boano

which has been built at the works of Mario Boano. We suppose that this all

matching number, completely restored last Boano ever built might be one of the

best and most interesting Boano in existence.


It is a very nice opportunity to step into a real thoroughbred out of the fifties

built up at the Ferrari works with the same technical components of the famous

Tour de France or California Spider. It is eligible for all the major events and

especially the Mille Miglia.
