Mr. Crane kept the 250 GT until 1967 at which point he sold to Luigi Chinetti Motors, Greenwich CT. The next owner was a Mr. Terry Herndon of Carlisle, MA, who is understood to have later sold the car to Mr. John Greenup of Worcester, MA, who kept the car until 1990, by which time it was painted red with a black interior and had been restored.

In 1993, John and Missy Warner of Colorado acquired the 250 GT from Ferrari of San Francisco and successfully participated in both the 1995 and 1996 ‘Colorado Grand road rallies, a perfect car for this event.

In 1998 Mr. Robert Young of Aspen purchased the 250 GT and it was kept in his ownership for a further 13 years. Mr. Young was the principal owner of Ferrari of Denver and a keen vintage racing enthusiast. During his tenure, he participated in the Colorado Grand four times from 2006-2010 with co-driver Geny Sanchez, he clearly enjoyed driving it. His dealership maintained the car along with marque specialist ‘Scuderia Rampante in nearby Boulder throughout his ownership.

In mid-2011 the current owner purchased the 250 GT, a noted West Coast collector who has since enjoyed participating in a number of road rallies with it. The decision was made later to return the car back to its original and extremely attractive exterior color of Azzurro Chiaro and re-trim the interior in Tan leather.

The convertible top was also replaced at this time, the paintwork was entrusted to Genaro Alvarado of Palmdale, California and the re-trim was completed by Howard McKee of Lakeside, California. Mechanical work required was completed by DeWayne Samuels of Phoenix, AZ, responsible for a number of significant restorations of Pebble Beach winning entries over the years.
