Ferrari’s exclusive four-place grand tourer expertly converted to open specification by Richard Straman Coachworks. Enthusiast owned and expertly maintained in top running order. A thoroughly enjoyable, family-friendly Ferrari.
Shortly after arriving in the USA, this 400i Automatic headed to Straman in Costa Mesa for conversion. At that time, the owner elected to have the car repainted black, and the interior color changed to match. Typical of Straman’s work, the craftsmanship meets or exceeds factory standards of the time, with excellent fit and finish all around. It has a beautifully engineered top-mechanism that works smoothly and effectively. As presented today, the black paintwork is attractive, with deep gloss and an honest character earned through regular enjoyment. A minor imperfection or two is noted, consistent with the car’s originality and road-ready nature.
