The 'L' denoted Lussos (or luxury) in the 250 GT/L name. This was the final iteration of the legendary 250 GT grand tourer, with elegant coachwork designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti. The Lussos were crafted from steel with an aluminum hood and doors, bulbous fenders, a fastback Kamm tail, and a large glassed canopy. The 2,400-millimieter wheelbase housed the same 2,953-cubic centimeter short-block V-12 that was designed by Ferrari engineer Gioacchino Colombo. This would be the last Ferrari V-12 road car to be powered by the 250 cubic centimeter sized cylinder, as displacement would increase to 275 cubic-centimeters for the next development of road cars.

The Lusso was given significant chassis upgrades including concentric springs around the telescopic shock absorbers and a Watts linkage to laterally stabilize the rear axle. Inside, the Lusso was well appointed with leather-upholstery door panels and bucket seats and a unique dashboard arrangement that had never been offered on any other Ferrari. They had large-dial tachometer and speedometer in the central position and angled towards the driver, with five smaller gauges in the traditional instrument panel location.

Production of the 250 GT/L concluded in late 1964 and just 350 examples were produced. This particular example, chassis number 5537GT, was the 275th example built. It entered Scaglietti's plant for coachwork during February 1964. It was completed in April and then sent to an unidentified owner; much of the car's early history is not known.

In the early 1980s, the car was in the care of Carl Walston of Portola Valley in California. The Lusso is believed to have remained with Mr. Walston for over 20 years. It has since moved into the care of several enthusiasts. The odometer shows less than 44,000 miles, which are believed to be original.
