Four exceptional classic Ferrari models early highlights from Gooding & Company's Amelia Island sale on 13 March 2015
Gooding & Company’s fifth consecutive year at Amelia Island is set to be a cracker, with a selection of four high-value classic Ferraris headlining the sale. At the top of the list is a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, offered with an estimate of $3,400,000-$3,800,000.
Originally bought in Rome in February 1967, the Bleu Chiaro 275 GTB/4 was imported to the USA in 1972 and quickly sold on to an enthusiast in Massachusetts. Driven up to 1982, the Ferrari was taken off the road, and has not been driven since.
Next in the line-up is a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet, complete with Ferrari factory certificate of authenticity. This desirable model comes complete with the rare factory hardtop and built-in sunroof. It was fully restored in 2012, and has since won Platinum awards at both the 2013 and 2014 Palm Beach Cavallino Classic Concours in Palm Beach, as well as many other awards. It’s estimated to sell for $2,000,000-$2,500,000.
One of the 598 Ferrari 330 GTC models ever produced will also go under the hammer, with an estimate of $900,000-$1,100,000. With just 12,000 miles on the clock, it’s presented in completely original and un-restored condition. The car’s second owner kept it for 30 years, driving it just once in all this time.
The final ‘Ferrari’ is actually a Dino 246 GTS, which is one of the final 20 cars to roll off the production line. Being a late car, it comes fitted with the hugely desirably Daytona seats, flared wheel arches and 7.5-inch Campagnolo cast alloy wheels. This example shows 23,600 miles, andis estimated to sell for $500,00-$600,000.All images copyright and courtesy of Gooding & Company
