A1964 Targa Florio class winner, chassis 3413 was just the third production Ferrari 250 GTO built. A fierce competitor, it racked up 15 overall and class victories between 1962 and 1965 including two Targa Florio class wins.

After retirement from serious competition, chassis 3413 passed through the hands of several enthusiast owners who continued to exercise the car in numerous vintage events.

Examples of the 250 GTO are very rarely offered for sale. Chassis 3413 is now available for the first time in over 18 years. The car and all its numbers-matching components (engine block, gearbox and rear axle) are included with the car’s sale. The original engine block has been removed for preservation, and the car is currently fitted with a 250 GT engine block built to GTO specification.
