    Here's a puzzler. My best and oldest friend's father in Germany owned a 250 GTE from new which he traded in 1964 for a 330GT. My friend has no idea what the chassis number was and his father has died. My friend would like to find the car if it exists. We know that the car was silver gray, and that's about it. However, there were only a few hundred made, so going through a registry listing looking for gray 250s delivered to a dealer in Germany would probably narrow it down to a manageable few cars. Is there a 250 GTE registry online similar to the two 330 registries?

    The car was delivered originally to Auto Becker the Ferrari dealer in Dusseldorf which recently went bankrupt. We could probably find the original German license number.

    Thoughts?

    Did you contact Ferrari in Maranello? Maybe they can help you? Or you could contact Ferrari Germany. (www.ferrari-deutschland.de).
    I am not aware of a 250GTE register. I will look out for you.

    Also on the vintage thread, Kare from Finland posted the chassis numbers sold by Auto Becker (amazing).
