One of just two Ferrari 212 chassis clothed by Ghia with a Cabriolet body, this example was completed early in 1952, in time for the Geneva Motor Show. Although each was different, both featured a disappearing soft-top and skirted rear fenders. After the Geneva show debut, it was also shown at the Turin Motor Show before being delivered to its first owner. This was Gianni Mazzochi, the founder of famous Italian publishing house Editoriale Domus. He would only own the car for a year, and following a brief spell in France it was sold to the United States. By the late 1960s, its V12 engine was removed and replaced with an easier to run Chevrolet V8. In 1972, the 212 Europa was acquired by a man from Grand Blanc, Michigan. He immediately placed the car in storage and it was long believed to have been lost. In 2011, Ferrari specialist Tom Shaughnessy tracked it down and bought it. Shortly thereafter, he also managed to buy the original engine 0233EU. Over the next six years the long lost Ghia Cabriolet was restored by Ferrari specialists. The work was completed in time for the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. In 2018, it was awarded the Wayne Obry Memorial Cup at the Cavallino Classic before it was consigned to the Gooding & Co. Amelia Island Auction.
