1983 Ferrari 512BBi VIN: ZFFJA09B000044761 Stunning original survivor car Recent complete engine-out service Recent comprehensive service 4.9 liter Flat 12 engine Gated 5-speed manual transmission Black leather interior Includes books, tools, jack and spare Finished by Ferrari in January of 1983, 44761 would be delivered new on March 1st in 1983 at Lake Forest Sportscars in Lake Bluff, Illinois. This Berlinetta Boxer is a stellar survivor, preservation class example, which has remained completely unmolested over the years. Its previous owners have shown immense care in the stewardship of this rare Ferrari and it shows in every small detail. Speaking volumes of how well the car was treated, the owner from October 2001 to October 2009 took meticulous notes by hand, noting both the mileage and maintenance history. After adding only 10,500 miles over eight years, the prancing horse would find a new owner by the name of Dave Helms. Helms of Scuderia Rampante in Erie, Colorado would purchase the car and would then go into the personal collection of Tom Horan. Horan is the board chairman for the Colorado Grand, a 1,000-mile rally of 1960 or earlier sports cars that rolls through the Rocky Mountains. In the winter of 2015, before Horan would take ownership of the car, the Boxer would receive an exhaustive, comprehensive service, going through every system and ensuring that each performed at 100%. A full engine-out service was performed, which included all of the sodium-filled valves were replaced with stainless, upgraded head gaskets were installed and the infamous Ferrari camshaft belts were entirely replaced. All new period correct TRX tires were also fitted on all four corners of the Ferrari. Upon arriving at Canepa, it was apparent how well the car was cared for throughout its life. To find a survivor car in this good of condition continues to become a rarity, and one that presents so well even more of an improbability. The car was hand cleaned from tip to tip, ensuring the factory surfaces were cared for and returned to their former glory, and polishing the factory Rosso Corsa paint back to a brilliant shine. Very little was needed to bring this Boxer back up to show quality standards. The 512BB was Pininfarina designed, and built by Scaglietti, and is the very last of the handmade Ferraris where passionate Ferrari craftsmen touched every part. This original, unrestored car still shows the marks of their hands and is unabashedly authentic. This Berlinetta Boxer is ready to be a preservation show winner, as well as a terrific companion on a thrilling drive.
