Patrick Ottis Co.
VINTAGE FERRARI SPECIALIST
We carefully research every historical detail to ensure period-correct accuracy, and our restorations consistently win and podium in the Ferrari Competition and Ferrari Touring classes at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and other significant car shows.
We believe that the cars we work on are special, and deserve to be used and enjoyed. From spirited backroad drives to competing in vintage racing, our mechanical work provides unparalleled safety and performance.
We take great pride in the quality of our work, and our small, yet experienced team of technicians collectively has over 150 years of experience working on Ferraris. We service and maintain all Ferrari road and racing cars from 1948 to present day.
Patrick Ottis began his restoration career as an apprentice with Alf Francis in 1972 at Classic Motors in Oklahoma City, and followed him to Alf Francis Scuderia in Wichita, KS where he worked on early Ferrari and Alfa Romeo race cars. Patrick then moved to Berkeley, CA to do similar work for Stephen Griswold, where he stayed until Griswold moved to England and he opened Patrick Ottis Co. in 1982.
Today Patrick and his son Tazio work side by side on many Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance class winning Ferrari restorations, both in customer cars and their own personal projects. Last year they took first place in the Ferrari Competition class at Pebble Beach in their personal 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza after racing it in the Rolex Monterey Historics the day before.
