Classic 1960s Ferraris at Gooding Amelia Island 2022
Two classic Ferraris from the mid-1960s are on offer at the Gooding Amelia Island 2022 classic car auction. Both models are usually very popular at auctions:
1967 Ferrari 330 GTS
The 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS (Estimate: $2,000,000 – $2,400,000), chassis 10173, is a US-market car delivered new in July 1967 to Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut in the stunning combination of Amaranto (Amaranth) over a Pelle Beige (Beige Leather) interior. Revealed at the Paris Motor Show in 1966, Ferrari’s 330 GTS combined iconic Pininfarina coachwork with a large 4.0-liter engine, beating out contemporaries in both style and performance. Only 99 examples were produced between 1966 and 1968, ensuring the exclusivity of these V-12 Spiders.
Cherished by long-term owners throughout the years, the 330 GTS was restored by respected Ferrari specialists at Wayne Obry’s Motion Products Inc. in 2014. This painstakingly detailed process was well documented with extensive receipts, correspondence, and photographs. Following its restoration, 10171 was chosen for a very special display class at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Ferrari, where each of the selected cars was required to be both “Classiche certified” and “pristine.”
1965 Ferrari 275 GTB
In 1964, Ferrari introduced the 275 GTB as the replacement for its highly successful 250 SWB Berlinetta at the Paris Motor Show. All in all, Ferrari built just 453 examples of the original 275 GTB, before introducing the revised four-cam GTB/4 in October 1996. Renowned coachbuilder Carrozzeria Scaglietti built only 248 examples of the two-cam 275 GTB in the original short-nose body style, the purest expression of this iconic design.
The 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB (Estimate: $1,300,000 – $1,600,000), chassis 07529, is a relatively late-production short-nose Berlinetta, originally finished in Giallo Stemma Ferrari (Ferrari Crest Yellow) over gray Connolly leather upholstery. Eventually making its way to Michigan in 1978, the 275 GTB has remained in single ownership for over four decades. During this time, the consignor planned to do a full restoration, preparing the car for various modifications throughout the years, but not seeing the complete work come to fruition.
More Italian Classics at Gooding Amelia Island 2022
1954 OSCA MT4 2-AD 1500 Spider
Officine Specializzate Costruzione Automobili, or OSCA, was established in Bologna, Italy by Bindo, Ernesto, and Ettore Maserati in 1947 when they left the company that bore their name. Over the next two decades, OSCA produced, in extremely limited numbers, an astonishing variety of sports racing, grand touring, and formula cars with advanced engineering and sharp attention to detail. Of the many models produced by OSCA, the most recognizable is without a doubt the MT4. From 1953 to 1955, an updated twin-cam model, known as the 2-AD, was produced in various displacements, from 1,100 to 1,500 cc.
The 1954 OSCA MT4 2-AD 1500 Spider (Estimate: $1,100,000 – $1,400,000), chassis no. 1148, was originally supplied with an ultra-desirable 1,500 cc engine. Road tested in the August 1955 issue of Road & Track magazine, this example enjoyed a colorful career campaigning in various West Coast motorsport shows and events. When purchased by a local collector in Washington, the car underwent a restorative attempt in a home garage but has yet to be restored to its former glory. Recently acquired by the consignor following four decades in single-family ownership, 1148 is an ideal candidate for restoration, as the most desirable specification of the definitive OSCA model that possesses a fascinating West Coast racing history.
The Amelia Island Auction will also include a 1968 Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada (Estimate: $700,000 – $900,000) featuring coachwork by Bertone, and a beautifully restored 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta SZ Coda Tronca (Estimate: $700,000 – $850,000).
