Ferrari restoration

(last updated October 21, 2014)

Ferrari PortfolioFerrari restoration collectors hire me to reupholster, re-trim and repair the original interior parts of their Ferrari restoration project, plus other European classic & exotic sports car interiors.

I have earned an excellent reputation for my custom auto upholstery skills on many classic Ferrari show car winners.

I have a lot of experience in reupholstering Gran Turismo Ferraris from the 1960s, as well as the Testarossa in the 1980s and 1990s. Whether it's a Coupe or Spyder, GTB, GTC, GTE, GTL or GTS, my auto upholstery services include the Ferrari 250, 275, 330 and 365.

All of these exotic sports car models have become highly prized by Ferrari collectors around the world for their sheer elegance and exquisite beauty. Fully restored Ferrari classics easily command prices in excess of $100,000 at auctions and upcoming CA Concours d'Elegance shows.

My full interior Ferrari restorations include reupholstering all interior parts to their original design and color specifications, like Ferrari seats, dashboards, steering wheels, consoles, headliners, carpets, door panels, and trunks. I only use the finest leathers and fabrics in the world to restore a Ferrari interior to the same, or better, condition than the factory original.

Below is my portfolio of sample interior Ferrari restorations. No job is too difficult for me to create another Concours d'Elegance Ferrari show car winner.

1963 Ferrari restoration 250 GT Lusso


Back To Top

April 2014: Another rare 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso (GT/L) went through a complete restoration at my shop.

Ferrari only produced 350 GT Lusso's between mid 1963 and early 1964. Today they are extremely rare and can easily get sold at auction for over $1,000,000 depending on its condition and owner history. For example, a fully restored Ferrari 250 GT Lusso owned by Steve McQueen sold at Christie's Monterey auction for $2,310,000!

This example marked my 3rd Ferrari Lusso restoration. I've reupholstered a 1964 GT Lusso in silver/red and a 1964 GT Lusso in blue/tan.

This Ferrari (chassis #4437) was reupholstered with the original red Connolly leather.

August 2013: I consider the Lusso the most elegant of Ferraris in the 1960s. It filled a void left between the sporty 250 GT SWB and the luxurious 250 GTE 2+2.

It's extremely rare to see a 250 GTL since Ferrari only produced 351 from January 1963 to August 1964!

An old time customer acquired a 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, and hired me to complete its interior restoration.

The original exterior was Ferrari red, but now it's Navy blue. The front seats and rear boot space (with its parcel shelf covered in quilted leather) is now the original J4104 Bisquit color Connolly leather. The dash is the original black Connolly leather.

This latest Ferrari restoration project reminds me of another 1964 Ferrari Lusso restoration I completed many years ago. That Ferrari was silver exterior/red interior. Very hot!

Back To Top

February 2012: Classic 1960s Ferraris are rare to see, let alone work on them. A friend referred me to his friend who asked I reupholster specific parts for his 1969 Ferrari 365 GTC.

While most customers usually want me to completely re-do their interior with brand new leather, panels, carpeting, liner, etc, this Ferrari owner had specific upholstery repair, installation, and fabrication needs.

For example, I had to repair a tear in the passenger side "C" pillar interior vinyl, and remove/reinstall the existing red leather at the inside of the door sills to remove sharp bumps underneath.

I had to install black trim on the passenger side "A" and "B" pillar and rear quarter window, and driver side "B" pillar and rear quarter window.

Last, I fabricated sun visors (both sides) to match the cream color vinyl headliner, as well as a plain black glove box liner and center console lift-out protector pad.

I'm thrilled have worked on this 365 GTC. I believe there were only 168 ever made before Ferrai introduced the GTC/4 in 1971. It's cool how Ferrari placed black vents in the back corners of the hood.

May 2013: I just finished replacing the leather dashboard on a 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello for 100% original mouse fur. I thank Re-Originals for helping me locate the mouse fur in Italy.

2002 Ferrari restoration 360 Spider seats


Back To Top

July 2014: The owner of this 2002 Ferrari 360 Spider wanted me to convert his standard beige factory leather seats to Daytona style seats.

I hand-stitched red piping along the seat edges, inserted the Daytona style lumbar stripe patterns to the seat's back and bottom cushions, and added red embroidery to the Ferrari logo inlaid on the head rests.

When the convertible top is down, these custom Daytona seats look awesome with the Rosso Corsa exterior color.
