In the world of classic cars, few names evoke the same reverence and awe as Ferrari, and the 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB is no exception. This iconic coupé, set to grace the stage at Mecum Auction’s annual Indy sale, is a testament to automotive artistry and heritage.

Originally born as a “short nose,” this particular 275 GTB transformed in 1981, becoming a coveted “long nose” variant thanks to the skilled hands of experts at Chicago’s North Shore Auto Rebuilders. Utilizing official replacement parts from Scaglietti, the vehicle’s original coachbuilder, the conversion was meticulous, elevating the car to new heights of allure and sophistication.

Cloaked in Ferrari’s signature Rosso Corsa paint, the Pininfarina-designed body exudes timeless elegance. At the same time, the Nero leather-clad interior boasts a wood-panel dashboard and a gated shifter, exuding a classic yet refined charm.

Beneath the hood lies the heart of the Prancing Horse—a Colombo V-12 engine delivering 280 horsepower and paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, offering a driving experience that is as exhilarating as it is unforgettable.

This meticulously maintained masterpiece is a rare find with a storied past, including racing at Road America. As it goes under the gavel, enthusiasts and collectors eagerly anticipate the opportunity to make it their own, with bidding expected to soar between $1.5 million and $2 million. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of automotive history at Mecum’s Indy 2024 sales event this Saturday, May 18, 2024.
