Ferrari 250GT Drogo For Sale in London
- Owned by prominent Ferrari collector Glen Kalil
- Uniquely built to the 250 GTO original specifications
- Freshly rebuilt engine by Ross Coleman
Originally delivered new in Italy in 1963 as a 250 GTE, In the 80s, 4769 was subsequently bought by prominent Ferrari collector Glen Kalil of Palm City, Florida.
In the 80s Glen Kalil commissioned Mario Allegretti to hand make an exact copy of the famous 250 GTO, chassis # 3445 GT which in 1965 was rebodied by Piero Drogo and the exquisite lines of this beautiful craftsmanship are the inspiration for 4769 GT. Significant chassis modifications were carried out and it is understood the body was built to the original drawings, body bucks and by the same panel beater that created the original Drogo Speciale. The car was exactly as the original, with sliding side windows and an identical bodyline, round side markers and no bumpers.
4769 was later sold to prominent collector Roger Willbanks of Denver Colorado in the early 90’s, who would keep and use the car on such events as the Colorado Grand for many years.
Although the work done on 4769 GT by Allegretti was of the highest possible standard, 4769 was known to have a slightly cramped driving position, which has recently been rectified so that today, the car can now be driven comfortably by 6ft + drivers.
Very recently the car has had its dry Sump 6 Webber 250 V12 engine freshly rebuilt by Ross Coleman, formerly the shop foreman for Wayne Obrey’s Motion Products. 4769 is also fitted with a gated, 5-speed, GTO style finned gearbox and a high quality newly re-upholstered interior.
This stunning and unique 250 Ferrari is now available for viewing in our Kew showroom. It really is a show stopper!
