Cameron’s iconic house from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is for sale. Again.

Cameron Frye's garage from Ferris Bueller's Day Off - real estate listing

We can't fathom why somebody didn't swoop up this famous house in Highland Park, Illinois, when it was first offered for sale in 2009, and again in 2011 - especially considering its role in the hit 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off. But if shoppers were holding off due to the price, it's time for them to take another look: since 2009, the home on 370 Beech St. has dropped from $2.3 million to $1.65 million, and now, to $1.5 million.

The Chicago-area home, which was Ferris Bueller's friend Cameron Frye's house in the movie, has four bedrooms, glass walls, and was built by notable architect A. James Speyer in 1953. The detached garage, an add-on built in the 1970s where the owner stored his classic cars, is also where Cameron sent his dad's 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder plummeting to its death into the ravine behind it. (Don't worry, the car was actually a replica made with MG underpinnings - not one of the 55 examples ever made).

Now, with that price reduction, perhaps the future owner will have a bit of money left over to rehab the kitchen stage a reenactment of the famous scene - with a Ferrari replica, of course.

1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder added to RM’s Monterey auction

1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder - red - three-quarter studio view

The Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder may have been introduced to the mainstream by the classic 1986 John Hughes' film Ferris Bueller's Day Off (of course, that car was a replica), but the iconic convertible has long been one of the most desirable collector cars for those in the know. With a little over 100 built, California Spyders rarely come up for sale, and when they do, they bring big money. Back in 2008, a 1961 model set a record for a car sold at auction with a $10.9 million price tag.

Those wanting to add a 250 GT California Spyder to their collection (and have the means) will have a chance later this month in Monterey, with a 1962 SWB (Short Wheel Base) model crossing the block at RM Auctions' event. One of just 37 SWB cars with the more desirable enclosed headlight design, the car is finished in Rosso Corsa paint and has a tan leather interior. Under the hood is Ferrari's legendary 3.0-liter V12, the same powerplant in the 250 GTO. RM estimates the value of the car to be in the $7.5-9 million range.

Scroll down to read the official announcement from RM, and check back in a few weeks for our complete Monterey coverage including results from the auction.
