Neglected Ferrari sells for £60,000 in Harrogate

A classic Ferrari in need of some tender loving care has sold for around twice what auctioneers estimated it would fetch at an auction in North Yorkshire.

The rare four-seater 1965 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 Berlinetta sold for a hammer price of £60,000 in Harrogate.

It was estimated that the car would go for between £30,000 and £40,000. The Ferrari was being sold as a restoration project after years of being stuck in a garage left it with mouldy fittings, torn seats and rusty wheels.

The car's trademark red bodywork was also left tinged with green algae. It is thought the car, which has 57,000 miles on the clock, could be worth £150,000 if it is brought back to its former glory.
