A Blue Ferrari 275 GTB In Monterey

by Mike –

This past August I was walking through the Portola Hotel in downtown Monterey intent on seeing the cars set to go across the auction block at the RM Sotheby’s auction. I came across this beautiful blue Ferrari 275 GTB. It is refreshing to see a Ferrari that is not red and this one is a stunning light blue.

RM Sotheby’s wrote,

305 bhp, 3,286 cc V-12 engine with six Weber dual-choke carburetors, five-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension with upper and lower wishbones, coil springs, and tubular shocks, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 94.5 in.

One of just nine long-nose, torque-tube, alloy-bodied examples fitted with six Weber carburetors; factory-fitted with an outside filler cap

Recent cosmetic restoration by Kevin Kay Restorations, with the engine rebuilt by Patrick Ottis

Just four Californian owners from new; includes original books, tools, and jack

Matching numbers example; submitted for Ferrari Classiche certification

This one checks all the boxes but it must be a challenge to keep six Webers working properly. It is nice to have an outside fuel filler cap rather than inside the trunk.

I think I know one of the four owners in this cars history.

  1. I agree that this car looks stunning in the silver/blue paint. The gold 330 GTS in the background, not so much.
    Are these the original seats? I don’t recall them having so much side bolstering.

  2. Jim Gardiner says

    A friends Dad brought a Burgundy one of these in to the USA from Canada. It was at his VW dealership getting Brakes and a couple of the mechanics went for a spin over lunch time and at over 100 mph took out 11 parked cars. They were not hurt. This was in the late 60’s when Ferrari refused to Crash test 10 cars for DOT compliance. My Dad wrote the insurance on it, they totaled it but the engine was sold to a guy in Louisiana who who put it into a ski boat. Tears all around.
