Chassis no. 9389; Engine no. 9389. Black over green leather. 3286/300hp, six Webers, 5-speed transaxle Dunlop disc brakes, centerlock wheels, dual mirrors, woodrim steering wheel, tool roll.

Evaluation: A Series 2 car with known provenance from new, this 275 Berlinetta was Ferrari Classiche examined and certified on 11 March 2015. Retains its original coachwork, matching-numbers engine, gearbox, and back axle.

The paint needs a detailed polish with a few too many fine swirls and chips. All the painted wheels are similarly badly chipped, possibly from misplaced hammer blows. A tidy engine bay with perhaps too much gloss black paint in addition to the body colour. The exterior trim is very good but the window rubber seals are aged. The green interior is subjective but the upholstery is impressive. The dash top has an Alcantara covering to prevent unwanted reflections. Supplied new in Rosso Chiaro over beige the change to black coachwork is a cool colour choice but the mid-green leather and carpets were an odd choice. Catalog described as “visually maintained and never fully restored,” and that’s a fair assessment in the flesh.

Bottom Line: Exchange rates can be frustrating when trying to evaluate the market, especially given recent fluctuations and other world events, but if we’re looking in dollar terms this car sold for what a concours-quality 275 GTB/4 ordinarily would, so it’s hard to call this driver-quality car anything but expensive with a healthy premium for the known ownership history and originality.

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.
