In love with classic coachbuilt Ferraris of the 1950’s but unable to find or afford one in Mexico City, Jose Fernandez has spent the last 57 years building his own tribute car to the classic Cavillinos he loves so much. It all started with a book about Ferrari that he discovered in a bookstore, where he was so taken by the beautiful, sleek designs of 250 Europas and 340 Americas that he went home and carved his own dream car out of a block of balsa wood. Years later, he commissioned a full-scale foam and plastic model of what he dreamt his perfect Ferrari would look like. The next steps were the hardest though. He spent decades finding someone who could build a body based on his design that would fit over a 330 GTC chassis that he had shipped down to Mexico City from New York. Once a body was finally ready, it took years of refinement to get it to fit like it should, and then came all of the interior assembly and other details that needed to be finished. In the end, Jose ended up with a backdated Ferrari that he always dreamed of, even though it isn’t actually a factory-built Ferrari. He doesn’t care though. He’s passionate about the brand and loves the car he now gets to drive. To read more about this amazing project that took decades to become a reality, head over to Classic Driver. […]
