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.
