Pininfarina introduced a Ferrari 250-based concept at the 1956 Geneva Motor Show. The car generated such demand that the 250 GT Boano, as it came to be called was put into production. There was one problem: Pininfarina was too overloaded to produce the coachwork, so former Ghia designer Mario Boano was called in. Some time later, Boano would leave for Fiat; his son-in-law Ezio Ellena would take over the work. Boano would build 74 250 GTs and Ellena another 50 between 1956 and 1958. The car pictured here is one of the latter Ellena models, delivered new to an owner in New York City. As with most Ferraris, the car would eventually end up in California where a restoration began in 2014. The now sits in Azzurro Metallizzato with a darker blue accenting the roof; the interior is finished in striking Pelle Rossa leather. This numbers-matching 250 GT will be auctioned at Bonhams Scottsdale, Arizona event this January.
