1965 Ferrari 275 GTB short nose, Serial Number 06841, 3.3 litre Colombo V12 engine with 3 Weber carburetors, 5 speed gated manual gearbox with syncromesh, disc brakes at all 4 corners, coachwork penned by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti with its body in steel, and aluminum alloy doors, hood/bonnet and trunk lid, the Gran Turismo Berlinetta is the successor to the long running 250 Series cars and one of just 235 Series I “short nose” 275 built. And while staggeringly beautiful, our 06841 has lead an interesting life and may not be for everyone. With the assistance of noted Ferrari historian, Marcel Massini’s history report, we learn that 06841 was born Grigio Argento and originally sold new these nearly sixty years ago into Switzerland in April of 1965, and in CH for the next six years would go on to have a racing accident in 1967 and have its original engine sold off in 1971. (A 275 GTB was “just a used car” 50+ years ago so no real regard was given to an original engine.) Since arriving into the States in 1971, the GTB would pass through several hands until ending up in the late 1990s in an immense, and impressive, multi-marque sports car collection where it has been residing on static display these past two+ decades. Having seen little use, and now shod with a non-matching engine from another 275, our 06841 is in need of comprehensive attention to all of its systems. 06841 has good engine compression and does start instantly and runs, drives and stops, the latter a wee bit dicey as the braking system is running on a Jaguar booster! Beautiful. Rare. Front engine. V12. Ferrari. 275 GTB short nose S/N 06841 is all of those and the ideal candidate for restoration or track use.
