First released in 1964, the Ferrari 275 GTB is one of the most celebrated and sought-after automotive designs of all time, currently occupying three spots on the list of the world’s most expensive cars ever sold. And while all surviving 275 GTB examples are incredibly elite, we’ve just come across something of a unicorn specimen: an original example of one of the first ten GTB/Cs ever produced in ’65.
Still equipped with its original factory frame, aluminum bodywork, engine, and gearbox — as verified by the Ferrari Classiche Department — this Italian V12 classic is made all the more noteworthy by the fact that of the first ten vehicles to leave the factory, this GTB/C is only one of three right-hand drive units. Sporting a variety of beautiful period-correct details like the Monza-style gas cap and GTO-style vents behind the windows and wheels, this exact ’65 specimen was purchased new by Irish businessman and motorsports mogul, Paddy McNally, before later being under the tutelage of European Formula 5000 winner and three-time British Saloon Car Champion, Frank Gardner. Currently showing 83,057 Miles on the odometer, this early production 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/C is currently for sale through Tom Hartley Jnr in the UK, where pricing and further information is available upon request.
