1966 Ferrari 275 GTB
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The car left the Ferrari factory in January of 1966 finished in argento (silver) with the interior upholstered in black leather. It was equipped with a left-hand-drive arrangement, three Weber carburetors, alloy Campagnolo wheels, safety belts and a radio antenna in the right rear fender. It was delivered new to the official Ferrari importer for Germany, Auto-Beck of Dusseldorf. It was first sold to Mr. Bucani who lived in Europe.
The car was exported to the United States in the early 1970s, where it was sold to Fred Denowitz of Pittsburgh, PA. In October of 1973, Mr. and Mrs. Bitone of Youngstown, Ohio purchased the car for their son, Robert, thinking it would be a strong incentive to finish college.
It spent several years with Robert Bitone, before control of the car was essentially handed over to a close friend, in whose care it would remain for at least three decades. It spent much of that time in the back of a Ferrari shop in Orange County. It is an original, unmolested time capsule that has just recently been returned to running order. It is well preserved and complete with rarely seen factory-delivered components, such as the radiator, washer bag, ground straps, carburetors and fuel lines. IN the trunk is the original spare, as well as a tool roll and books. The original keys are even with the vehicle.
There are Carello lamps, Talbot mirror, alloy wheels and Pirelli Cinturato tires.
