    Greetings All!

    I am working on a 1997 550 Maranello restoration. There is a placard in the engine bay saying the delivered color is Sebring Blue. Does anyone know how many of those were painted that color in both 1997 and in total overall?

    Thanks In Advance!!

    Do not see that color at all on the 1998 or 1995 list of Ferrari paint colors, but it is on Marcel Massini's 1994 list of colors. Cannot be too many out there, but Ferrari never published any specific numbers of paint colors produced that we have seen.

    FER 503/C
    Blu Sebring
    Dark blue metallic

    Is there such a thing as NART Blue in '97? Despite the Sebring Blue placard, there is a little official looking 2x3 piece of paper in the glovebox with NART Blue on it. Odd. It's an American 550 so the NART designation would make sense.

    Here are the 1998 Ferrari standard paint colors. I do not have the same thing for 1997. As you can see, Blu NART Metalizzato is on the list.
