The Ferrari 275 GTS had a higher rear axle ratio than the 275 GTB Berlinetta, making the GTS a more relaxed highway cruiser with an impressive 145 mph top speed. It was built atop a short 2400mm wheelbase and had great handling and agility. The attractive design was penned by Pininfarina and given distinct differences over its GTB sibling. The luxurious interior featured fully adjustable bucket seats, greater luggage capacity and a smoother ride.
This 1965 Ferrari 257 GTS with chassis number 07605 was shipped to Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut on September 22nd of 1965. When it left the factory it was painted in a combination of Nocciola over a red interior. The first owner, David Gray of Houston, Texas, soon purchased the car. In 1972 the original transmission was removed from the car as it was in need of serve. The work was never carried out and the car remained in storage until 1999 when it was discovered by Specialized Motor Sports of Lakewood, Colorado. A restoration soon followed with the original transmission being serviced and re-fitted.
In 2002, the car was purchased by Chris Minnick who used it sparingly over the next two years. It was shown in the Wooden Keels and Classic Wheels Concours d'Elegance in Houston, Texas where it earned an award. In 2004, the car was sold to its current owner.
In 2009, this 275 GTS was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was expected to sell for $400,000 - $500,000. Sadly, a willing buyer able to satisfy the car's reserve was not found, and the lot was left unsold.
