(PRWEB) February 17, 2006 — Classyauto.com, one of the leading websites specializing in For Sale By Owner vehicles, has a growing reputation for effectively marketing celebrity owned vehicles. The most recent is this Ferrari, chassis #3919 belonging to Frank Beard, drummer for ZZ Top.
ZZ Top is one of the most recognizable Rock and Roll bands in history. They were always known for three things; their beards, their music, and their cars. As avid collectors and enthusiasts, they could always be seen driving the best exotics and custom street rods. Many of their most recognizable vehicles were featured in the band’s videos. Now, the public has a chance to purchase a vehicle from Frank Beard’s collection.
Modified for Frank Beard by Greg Jones Restoration and Genaddi Design Group (formerly M&L Auto Specialists) it has a signed plaque on the firewall. Frank has enjoyed this car since having it built in 1992, but is now offering it for sale. The custom, aluminum body is on a Ferrari 250 GTE Chassis that has been shortened and heavily modified to accommodate Spyder type configuration. It has a 250 rear axle with Watts link added that was copied from an original GTO. The, 3L, 12 cylinder engine was converted to accommodate 6 twin-choke Webber carburetors. It also has a dry sump system, 5 speed manual transmission, fuel cell inside of an aluminum riveted gas tank, and original Dunlop disc brakes. The engine has just been rebuilt, as well as the Borrani wire wheels with stainless steel spokes. The car runs and drives fantastic. This is a rare opportunity to own a true one-of-a-kind celebrity owned classic.
The vehicle will be auctioned on eBay starting on Feb. 23rd. Interested parties can see several photos of the vehicle by visiting www.classyauto.com/41902.
