250 SWB 2221 GT Full Resoration

An exciting new Ferrari restoration has commenced at GTO Engineering on 250 SWB 2221 GT. This was one of only 14 RHD SWBs produced and was a competition spec car with a steel body, using many rare Ferrari parts. Originally Colonel Ronnie Hoare's car this was then widely campaigned by Ron Fry before he owned a 250 GTO and 250 LM. Later it was owned by Burnley Richmond of Downton tuning fame, before going to a private collection in Sicily where it was re-bodied in aluminium, and the original steel body was retained.

 

GTO Engineering have now removed the aluminium body and refitted the original steel body to the frame. Meanwhile a full mechanical restoration including Ferrari engine rebuild is taking place.
