    Just a few years ago the going rate was circa $250K. I guess the restorers can charge according to the market.

    Ed, four years ago I looked into a PB quality resto for a rare, coachbuilt Ferrari that was in "barn find" condition. The figures I received from multiple sources (the usual suspects) were all circa $600k.

    Being in a preservation mode leaves less room for conjecture & speculation. The car has been static for decades unless proven otherwise. Fascinating. Great car.

    Thank you all for the many replies about restoration of this California.
    I don't know who won the auction,of course, but the question is: the new owner shall keep the car in its actual conditions, or he is going to restore it? Anyone knows?
    Regards

    On french TV, a guy from Artcurial said the new owner will keep the car in unrestored condition except mechanical components. Not sure how much this info was accurate...

    I was hoping that would be the case.

    It had a certain unique charm before restoration and now it just seems sort of...sanitized.
