Description

Delivered new to official dealer M. Gastone Crepaldi S.a.s of Via San Marco, Milan, Italy on 31st May 1967

Original specification was Verde Pino coachwork with Beige VM 3218 interior, instruments in Kilometres, full leather seats, special upholstery and power windows
Registered on Italian plates ‘MI D 98596’ and sold to the first owner ‘Speranza S.p.A’ on 8th June, a real estate company based in Milan, for the sum of Lire 6’500’000

Retained by the first owner until 28th March 1970 when ownership passed to ‘Personnel Survey and Marketing Research S.p.A’ based in Turin, sold for lire 800’000 and re-registered on Torino plates ‘TO D 41645’

On 17th March 1972, the 275 was purchased by its third owner, Mr Vivian Arthur Corradini, a car dealer born in New York who lived in Milan at the time
Mr Corradini sold the car one month later to Mr Joel David Cowart of West Palm Beach, FL, and resident c/o ACI Automobile Club of Italy at Corso Venezia 43, Milan. The 275 was registered in Milan and subsequently exported in June to the United States by Mr Cowart

Shown by Mr Cowart at the 11th annual Ferrari Club Of America meeting at Stone Mountain Park, GA, in May 1974 and the Ferrari Club Of America Florida region fall meeting in 1975

In 1993 the GTB/4 received complete bodywork restoration, re-painted in its original Verde Pino and reupholstered in Connolly hide, showing under 70,000kms on the odometer

Repatriated to Italy in 1995 where it spent time on display in a car museum before being acquired by the current owner in 2001 to add to his exceptional collection of European sports cars

Offered fresh to market after seventeen years of private ownership, this 275 GTB/4 is presented exactly as it left the factory, the gorgeous Verde Pino coachwork remains in superb condition and importantly the car retains its original engine and gearbox as confirmed by Ferrari Classiche Dept

Rarely do 275 models of this calibre come to market. With its desirable original specification, long term ownership and the high degree of originality which this car retains, this four cam is very much best of breed
