    Quarantine boredom has me wondering which vintage Ferraris had unique colors?

    Let's say exterior colors in which 10 (?) or fewer cars in any model series were painted in. There must be a few brave owners who had some special cars out there, I'd love to see pictures of them...

    I knew Marcel would deliver! Love it! It reminds me of the Peron car that was for sale a while back...

    The Peron car, a 212 Inter by Ghia... Although pretty unique in its two tone colors, black and yellow are pretty commonplace. Unlike the car Marcel posted above, which is more like what I'm talking about...

    These colors are totally incorrect. Originally the car was NOT yellow/black.
    It is currently being redone.

    Interesting, what were the original colors?

    (I must say I'm a fan of the Yellow/Black, though...)

    How about this, 4031SA / 3097SA. Was this shade of green on any other car? Seems to be pretty unique, but then again, all of these Superamericas were...

    I have a 1970 365GT 2+2 in Verde Bahram, which could be the same color as this Superamerica. Marcel can probably tell us how many cars were painted this color. It is a beautiful shade of green (and I normally do not like green cars).

    ^ a friend of mine, JT, owned it. sold it at a monterey auction. it sold relatively cheaply. i supposed that model/style was not loved much at that time.

    It looks darker, but very pretty too! Any chance of a full picture?

    I saw the Collier/Revs car in Naples several years ago and my recollection is that it’s darker, maybe verde pino, but I could be mistaken. I do recall that the paint was badly checked, so maybe it’s since been repainted.
