A Pair of 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4s

Although about 330 275 GTB/4 coupes were built in the 1966-67 period, only 16 of these were bodied in aluminum panels, according to Cavallino Magazine’s 1986 “The Four Cam” feature article by Dyke Ridgley. In reality this means that only 5% of the 330 GTB/4s produced were factory constructed in aluminum, making these an exceedingly rare variant. Chassis 09501 is the third of the 16 built.

Recently fully detailed by the owner, 09501 comes with its build sheet, complete factory tool roll, and is fitted with freshly rebuilt Borranis and correct new knockoffs. It is totally ready for any driving adventure, especially those that encourage full use of this car’s 7,000 rpm redline.

The steel-bodied 275 GTB/4, s/n 09337, has been treated to much specialist work in its lifetime, all with the aim of concours perfection. In addition to Platinum Awards at the 2004, 2005, and 2006 Cavallino Classic, in August 2009, the car was invited to The Quail for a special FCA 30-car display of “The Great Ferraris.”

Given its previous performance in judged competition and the recent work carried out, this four-cam is undoubtedly a very high-point example and likely even a 100-point car. Simply put, it may very well be the finest and most correct four-cam on the planet.
