Sold for $2,117,500 at 2017 RM Sotheby's : Arizona Auction.
Sold for $2,640,000 at 2021 Mecum : Monterey.
This Ferrari 275 GTB is a higher-specification example that came factory-equipped with an upgraded intake system with six Weber twin-choke carburetors versus the traditional tripe-Weber setup. The three-Weber setup produced approximately 280 horsepower at 7,600 RPM, while the six-carb version was in the 300 horsepower range.

Along with the more potent engine setup, this Ferrari 275 is a 'long nose' example that was better suited for high-speed stability and has the torque-tube driveline configuration which lowers vibration. It is finished in its original color combination of Giallo Fly (Fly Yellow) paint over Nero (Black) leather upholstery. The car was completed in April of 1966 and delivered to Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut, where it was purchased new by FCA (Ferrari Club of America) stalwart John Egan. While in his care, the car was shown at various FCA meetings, including the annual Grosse Pointe Yacht Club event near Detroit, where it garnered Best of Show in 1973.

In 1977, the car was sold to John Levy of Arlington, Virginia, with the car then being sold again in 1978 to Ron Spangler of Prancing Horse Farm in Bel Air, Maryland, where the car was displayed in 1980, followed by exhibition at Al Turner's Spring Party in 1981.

Marc Tauber of Morristown, New Jersey acquired the Ferrari in 1982, and kept it only briefly, selling it later in the year. At the time, the car was advertised as having 9,600 miles on the odometer. It was purchased by Jim Wickstead of Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, who retained the Ferrari until 1997. The new owner had the engine rebuilt and the suspension and brakes upgraded. In early 2017, the car entered the care of its current caretaker.

Currently, this six-carburetor 275 GTB has 21,000 miles on the odometer and it retains its original 3.3-liter Colombo V12 engine, mated to the proper 5-speed manual gearbox/rear transaxle. The Fly Yellow paint finish remains mostly original, with the exception of light touch-ups above the radiator opening and at the top of the front clip, complemented by the original black leather interior. It rides on a set of Borrani knock-off wire wheels.
