    RM Sotheby's - Ferrari GT LWB California Spider by Scaglietti | Arizona

    To the individual that was looking for a car that could be driven leisurely with the top down on Saturday, taken to the track and raced hard on Sunday, and with the requisite Italian style and flair only a Ferrari could deliver, there was simply no other option. While Ferrari already produced a convertible V road car at the time, the GT Cabriolet, this car was not to be confused with the California Spider, as the Cabriolet drew its roots from the Pinin Farina Coupe.

    The California Spider was something far more potent. This was no boulevard cruiser and not a Ferrari to be taken lightly. Many of the early California Spiders carried only subtle changes over their hardtop siblings. The prototype, chassis GT, was nearly unchanged from the TdF, with the exception of its convertible top. Cosmetic changes were minor, with slightly revised wheel arches, and it could be specified with either open or closed headlights.

    The car is pictured at this event in Prancing Horse magazine, issue number Roush, founder and publisher of the Ferrari Market Letter, in At that time, it was restored by FAF Motorcars, again being painted red with a black leather interior. This California Spider then made its way north, and by , it came into the ownership of Ferrari historian Stan Nowak, who authored among several other books on Ferrari the monograph Ferrari Spyder California, which was no doubt inspired in part by his time with GT.

    The car was then sold to noted Ferrari collector Anthony Wang in During this process, a comprehensive album that contains literally hundreds of detailed restoration photos was generated, and these photos convincingly suggest that there was no evidence of rust or accident trauma. Less than a month later, the car was shown at the Cavallino Classic, where it placed First in Class, testifying to the quality and authenticity of its restoration. In May, under this new ownership, the still original engine was completely rebuilt in the Netherlands by marque specialist Piet Roelofs.

    The Ferrari would remain with Richter for 13 years, until it was acquired by one of the foremost Ferrari collectors in the Northeast United States, who treated the car to a fresh service at Ferrari of Newport Beach.

    No expense was spared in bringing the engine to flawless running order, and the car was further dialed in for road use with work done to the brakes and shocks as well. Furthermore, the car is accompanied by a complete tool kit. It would make a memorable participant for top-shelf touring events, such as the Colorado Grand, and it would surely be welcome at concours events around the globe. In addition to copies of the factory build sheet, receipts, and the aforementioned photo album that chronicles its prior restoration by European Auto Restoration, receipts from its prior engine rebuild in the Netherlands and various correspondence between previous owners are all included with the sale.
