Considering that a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO (number 4153 GT) just sold for $70 million, it's no surprise that a container full of genuine Ferrari 250 GTO, 250 SWB, 275, Daytona Competizione, F40 and 512LM parts is now estimated to be worth well over $1.5 million by auctioneer Coys. Especially since it also contains some trim bits for a Maserati 250F, just in case your project list includes that too.

Restoring Ferrari's classic racing cars is never an easy task, and while retooling for the job is always an option, using genuine new old stock is a dream come true. This recent find of wire wheels in their original wooden boxes, carburetors in their original oiled wrapping paper, exhaust pipes, radiator grills, hoods, dashboards and more was part of a large private collection, the owner of which passed away years ago.

This month, all lots will be auctioned off by Coys on Friday, June 29 at no reserve, ahead of their Blenheim Palace sale the next day. So make sure not to think about that 250 manifold too long. These parts are unlikely to pop up again anytime soon.
