After a couple of years of ownership, the Ferrari was sold to Mr J.D Lawrence who kept it until 2004 when purchased by a Mr J. Connell.
During Mr Connell’s ownership, around 2008/9, the car benefitted from a host of mechanical works undertaken by specialist Neal Lucas Sports Cars.
This included a replacement fuel pump and fuel filters, inner/outer rear wheel bearings, rebuilding of the starter motor, a replacement clutch, a front hub assembly overhaul, replacement front brakes disc and pads, and most importantly, an engine overhaul which included replacement exhaust valves, a new head gasket, new timing chain, and new cam covers. Invoices from the aforementioned specialist total more than £15,000 for this work.
The car is accompanied by its tools and jack, the original book pack containing the service history, service stamps by Emblem Sports Cars, numerous old invoices and bills, MOT’s, photo’s of top engine rebuild.
Independent Ferrari specialists The Ferrari Centre in Kent have recently carried out annual service at a cost of over £5000 fresh MOT.
