Andre Marie Ruf (AMR) has produced over the years what have come to be regarded as the industry standard in limited production white metal 1:43 scale automobile models. Our example of a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider Long Wheelbase, is part of an exclusive collection of signed and numbered pieces issued in the late 80's and early 90's. Each model in the series was produced in a worldwide run of only 500, and in order to obtain an example, one had to commit to purchasing one of every type to be released in future! We are fortunate to have on offer #197/500, as it is in absolutely new/mint condition, having never been displayed. It even retains its original factory plastic wrap and AMR logo adhesive tape! This is a brilliantly executed model, equipped with beautiful photo-etch wire wheels, fully detailed instruments and cockpit, delicate Ferrari badging, and a signed and numbered edition plaque on the Perspex base. Both inner and outer factory boxes are supplied as well. This is truly a time capsule model which can take pride of place in any fine collection. Model is approximately 4" long, base is 6 x 3". This 1:43 scale Ferrari is impressive and heavy!
