The Ferrari California Spyder Replica from the 1980s classic movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is heading to Mecum Auctions this weekend in Monterey.
More than 750 classic and collector vehicles will be auctioned off this weekend at the fifth annual Daytime Auction at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey. The Ferrari being sold will be the actual one used in the movie, built by Neil Glassmoyer of Modena Designs and Development. Three total replicas were built, and the one heading to auction may be the only surviving example.
The vehicle has been fully restored by Glassmoyer and will be offered directly from the original builder on August 17.
“They gave us four weeks to build the movie cars,” said Glassmoyer. “I always say we built two and a half cars; two were interchangeably used as Hero and stunt cars and one was a rolling fiberglass shell that was used in the destruction scene. This car was actually intended for the stunt work, but both saw action, and both wound up with broken front suspension bolts because the big jump scene took nine takes between the two cars.”
