1966 Ferrari 275 GTS
AUCTION RESULTS: Car was Sold at a price of $445,500

260bhp, 3,285 cc single overhead camshaft Colombo V12 engine, five-speed synchromesh manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 94.5" (2,400mm)

According to factory paperwork, the Ferrari offered here, s/n 07655, was completed in July 1965 and imported new in autumn of that year to the United States by Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut. By August 1966, it was owned by one Mr. Petrascoro of New Jersey before eventually coming under the ownership of Steve Saunders of Illinois in the 1980s, having since been repainted red and fitted with a tan leather interior. Advertised for sale in 1989, it had received a new beige top and its transaxle, heads, and clutch were rebuilt. Showing just 19,000 miles, it was sold in 1990 to William Jacobs, also of Illinois, before being acquired by the previous owner in the late 1990s with the same general mileage, complete with its tools and books, and advertised as a former class winner at the Ferrari National meet.

An avid and dedicated collector, the previous owner drove s/n 07655 rather sparingly, with the exception of a tour through New England in the 1999 Forza Mille. Finished in Rosso Chiaro with a tan top, tan leather interior and the very desirable Borrani wire wheels, the car remains in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, highly presentable and well-suited for continued enjoyment. Since acquiring the car, which has been Ferrari Classiche and FNA certified, the vendor has carefully maintained it in his Florida collection.

Characterized by wonderful sounds, superb balance, and great style, the driving pleasures afforded by a 275 GTS are unparalleled. One of only 200 examples produced, this handsome, well-documented and professionally maintained car exemplifies the Ferrari gran turismo spirit in its purest, V12-powered form.
