Comments:

The 275 GTB/2 Shortnose has been manufactured in 1965 in Maranello and

delivered through the US main importer Luigi Chinetti Motors INC NY in May

1965 to its first owner Mr. Starr.


According to the Ferrari Lettera di Dati Produzione Vettura it had been ordered

and sold in the colour combination of Grigio Argento 106-E-I Salchi with its very

rare interior of Pelle orange, which was more a warm abricot/beige than a real

orange.


It is as well confirmed by Ferrari that it retained its original frame and matching

number engine.


The last US owner Philipp White/Atherton California commissioned a complete

nut and bolt restoration on a very high standard. The restoration has been

carried out by one of the well known Ferrari workshops in California. The car was

stripped down to bare metal receiving a wonderful high quality paint job. The

engine has been completely rebuilt as well as the suspension, brakes and most

of the mechanical components. The interior has been done as perfect as

possible in its original delivery colour pelle orange. The invoices were

accumulated in total at an amazing 212.000,-  USD.


The whole restoration has been carried out at an odometer mileage of 38 915

mls. We are talikng now about a mileage after our last test drive at 40 550 mls.

That means that has not been driven more than 1 600 mls after its

restoration.


Between 2006 and 2008 it was seen on a couple of Concours in the Pacific

region. It received a Platinum Award at the highly appreciated Ferrari Concours

of the Ferrari Club America.Showing as a result 98.5 points, missing just one

point by not having a tool roll.


In 2010 it found a new home in Germany where it was frequently driven and

always nicely maintained.


After having made some test drives we could testify that it is driving

magnificently.. The engine has lots of torque and sounds great, the gearbox

does not have any vibration and the syncros are working well shifting all gears

faultlessly. The suspension and brakes are working as they should thanks to the

restoration which has been carriid out.
