For those who don’t know the name, David Wheeler has been the editor of the 250 GTE Newsletter since
2014, and during his tenure in that position has gathered a vast amount of information on the model, which he
now shares with us through this massive tome running to some 432 pages. It provides a fascinating in depth
account of the development of the model, and detailed accounts of the specification and changes to the
model through its production period, together with owner experiences, notably the assistance of renowned
Dutch Ferrari historian and 250 GTE owner Jean-Louis Bezemer, who was instrumental in sowing the seed for
the book project. There is also a vast wealth of technical data, including tables, graphs and build sheets,
together with an appendix featuring a comprehensive list of chassis numbers. This also gives the original
Pininfarina body number exterior and interior colours, whether right or left hand drive, original sale place and
date where known, together with data on known converted cars. A “number cruncher’s dream”!
David and his project collaborators are to be congratulated on a very impressive body of work, which is limited
to only 750 individually signed and numbered copies, so get you order in fast.
