Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Restoration


When a Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta arrives in your workshop, it's something to be very excited about. When it's one of the incredibly rare right-hand-drive examples, there's even more cause for delight.

This car is a remarkable example of one of the most legendary Ferrari road and competition cars. Originally revealed at the Paris motor show 1959, the 250 GT Short-Wheelbase ('Passo Corto') was a full 20cm shorter between the wheels compared to the Long-Wheelbase 250s.

This particular Ferrari 250 GT SWB received a sympathetic but fastidious restoration at Foskers, which included a fresh coat of paint in its striking original colour. More significant was the application of this colour in the original cellulose finish, which looks truly incredible.

The comprehensive refurbishment of this 250 Berlinetta has made the car shine, and we are immensely proud of what our team achieved for the client. The gallery above gives a snapshot into the newly-restored condition of this wonderful Short-Wheelbase.
