1959 Ferrari 250 GT Pinin Farina Coupe #1607GT
We’ve all heard of the unicorn “barn find”, but what about an “apartment find”?
This 1959 Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe spent decades hidden away behind a wall in an unassuming West Hollywood apartment. A car that began its life in Naples, Italy eventually made its way to Hollywood, CA where it remained stored inside a one-bedroom apartment for over 30 years while it was restored. Restoration was never completed, however, and #1607GT remained hidden from the world from the mid-80s until it was sold in 2016.
Since then, #1607GT has made its way to Grand Touring where it is currently undergoing a comprehensive restoration.

Final paint and leather selections have been made. A two-toned red and black exterior will be complimented by a deep red leather.

If you look closely at the photo, you’ll notice the exterior wall essentially swung open like a giant door. The section of the wall had been hinged to allow for easy access to the dining room area where the car was stored during restoration.
