Chassis no. 10025. Red over beige leather. 3286/300hp, six Webers, 5-speed, centerlock alloy wheels (three-ear Borrani wire wheels included), Michelin XWX tires, outside fuel filler, manuals, tool roll, jack, alloy body. Engine internal number 1668.

Evaluation: The ninth of 16 alloy-bodied 275 GTB/4s. Decent older repaint with edge chips and surface irregularities. Good chrome and lightly worn interior. Modified by Tom Meade with an exterior fuel filler. Restored twice, first by Judge Ralph Gorenstein in the late 1990s, then by Pat Hart. Excellent throughout and represented as the matching numbers engine. Color changed from Celeste Blue with Blue interior. Engine confirmed by Ferrari Classiche as original, but apparently not with Red Book certification.

Bottom Line: Sold by RM at Monterey in 1999 before the most recent re-restoration for $330,000, a number that twenty-two years later is somewhat irrelevant other than being appropriate for the time. Likewise, this result is realistic for the restoration’s age and the lack of Ferrari Classiche certification, a significant 275 GTB/4 alloy with Tom Meade refinements.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
