Comments:

Our new 250 Cabriolet Series II has been delivered by Officine Romanezzi

Spa./Roma, an early Ferrari dealership, to its first owner Contraves Spa/Italia.

Contraves Spa belonged to one of the most famous industrial families based in

Zürich/Switzerland. The owner Dr. Dieter Bührle had ordered his new Cabriolet at

Ferrari in Azzurro (light blue metallic) with a contrasting interior in Beige/tan.


Up from 1962 Dr. Dieter Bührle had it registered in Zürich/Switzerland where it

nearly spent all of its life being then sold in the mid sixties to Peter

Monterverdi, the famous sportscar producer.


It the early seventies it was bought by Kurt Bohrer, who was a master mechanic

working for Peter Monteverdi and from time to time racing sportscars in the

name of Peter Monteverdi or for Peter Monteverdi. Kurt Bohrer kept an eye on it

for nearly 40 years. By the late seventies he decided to change the colour from

Azzurro Pinin Farina into Rosso Rubino. The archive file shows quite some pics

when the car was sitting in Kurt Bohrers garage brought back to bare metal. The

overall mileage was listed at 51 802 km when the engine was completely rebuilt

by Technmosim AG in Birsfelden/Switzerland.


In 2005 we had the chance to inspect the car at Kurt Bohrer's home garage

having an odometer mileage of 58 250 km. In this time the engine was nicely

running and a longer test drive was carried out with the owner. A few month later

Kurt decided to sell it to Peter Grohe, Utwill/ Switzerland who kept it for another

couple of years before it ended up in a German collection where we bought

it in September 2019.


Before purchasing we had it inspected properly realizing that there was quite

some work left over the years especially underneath. So we immediately started

to dismantle the whole car. The work which was carried out took in the end the

whole winter and will be finished by the end of February 2020. Our work is

documented by hundreds of detailed photos following each step of the

restoration and by the invoices about labour and parts exceeding easily

100.000,-  €. By this it will be in brand new condition underneath and the engine

compartment will be perfectly detailed. We could as well confirm that we did not

find any corrosion or any signs of former accidents thanks to its very short

owner history.


The Pininfarina Series II cabriolet today is in drivable condition throughout

showing an odometer mileage of 63 656 km. The engine produces lots of

torque documented bya perfect result of its latest compression leakdown test.

The gearbox shifts properly without any synchro problems and there is not any

noise or vibration coming from the drivetrain.It sounds and drives flawlessly.


After having inspected the relevant and most important numbers we are able to

confirm that it still carries its original components with their correctly stamped

numero interna. The Tipo 128 F engine, Tipo 508 F gearbox and as well the

Tipo 508 F differential are corresponding to the information shown in its Foglio

Montaggio which accompanies the archive file.


The Lettera Conferma Dati or Vehicle Production Data sheet has been issued by

Ferrari on the 23rd of September 2019 confirming full matching numbers and

Azzurro Pnin Farina with Beige interior as its original colour combination.
