Santa Monica, 27th July, 2020

Gooding & Company, the auction house revered for selling the world’s most valuable collector cars, has officially opened bidder registration and released the full online catalogue for Geared Online. The esteemed auction house is also thrilled to announce an exceedingly rare opportunity to own a highly original, never before shown 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose. Quite possibly the most enviable steel-bodied 275 GTB in existence, this unrestored Ferrari makes its auction debut at Gooding & Company’s Geared Online sale running August 3-7. 

“We are honored to present this significant 275 GTB Ferrari, which has long been unseen in the collector car market,” states David Gooding, President and Founder of Gooding & Company. “Having the chance to sell a magnificently preserved car with such unique and desirable factory equipment is truly exciting. This is certainly one of the finest 275s I have ever encountered.”

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose ... Estimate: $2,750,000 – $3,250,000
The Pininfarina-designed 275 GTB Long Nose is one of the most sought-after and collectible road-going Ferraris. The remarkable example offered here combines the authentic mechanical specifications with seldom seen factory options, as it features the exclusive torque tube driveshaft, high-performance six-carburetor intake, and an exceedingly rare competition-style external fuel filler cap. This 275 GTB’s distinctive appearance is further highlighted by its attractive, one-off color scheme of Bianco over beige leather.  

Among the very last 275 GTBs produced, chassis 08921 was sold new to Pier Luigi Perri in Genova, and it remained in Italy until 1969, when it was sold to Ferrari’s North American distributor, Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut. A limited roster of knowledgeable enthusiasts have owned this Ferrari since its arrival in the US, most recently possessed by a private collector in New Mexico, who acquired the car in 1995.  Never before restored and showing just over 50,000 miles, this special 275 GTB remains in amazingly original and well-preserved condition. Not only does this Ferrari have a fantastic patina, it possesses highly coveted period accessories such as Marchal driving lights, a Blaupunkt radio, a Jaeger chronograph, a set of Campagnolo alloys and a set of Borrani wires. 

Among the most iconic sports cars of all time, the 275 GTB combines the very best Ferrari attributes in one beautiful, well-rounded package. Not only is this particular car a refined, late-production example, its handsome color scheme and rare factory features make it one of the most exceptional steel-bodied 275 GTBs in existence. Offered with books, tools, two sets of wheels, and extensive documentation, eligible for countless events, and unmatched in its specification and condition, 08921 is truly a Ferrari fit for the connoisseur.  

Additional Highlights
Additional offerings from Geared Online include a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster (Estimate: $850,000 – $950,000) accompanied with its factory hardtop and retained in current ownership for 27 years, a 1953 Chrysler Special (Estimate: $550,000 – $650,000), one of only 16 examples custom-built by Carrozzeria Ghia, and a 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona (Estimate: $500,000 – $600,000) offered with its original books, tool roll, Cromodra wheels, and extensive records.

Another exciting announcement for Gooding & Company is the renewed sponsorship from Putnam Leasing. 

“We are thrilled to have Putnam Leasing as our financing sponsor and to offer our clients several financing options with their next collector car,” states David Gooding, President and Founder of Gooding & Company. “Gooding & Company recognizes the knowledge and resources that Putnam Leasing offers for enthusiasts looking to finance their next collector car. Putnam’s expertise and personalized experience aligns with our passion and approach to car collecting and customer care.”Offered from a prominent Porsche collection, this important works-prepared 911 ST Rally car has been carefully researched by a leading model authority and completely restored by noted marque specialist Gary Kempton. This car was originally finished in white and specially built to rally configuration with wide fender rear flares, a strengthened body shell, revised gear ratios, 40% locking differential, twin-plug engine, and specialized off-road equipment. Today, the car appears as it did when it left the Porsche factory in 1971 and is accurately detailed down to the proper whitewall tires and period-correct rally equipment.

Steven Posner, CEO of Putnam Leasing, is excited to announce its exclusive sponsorship with Gooding & Company for the future Geared Online auctions in conjunction with the auction house’s live events next year. Posner further stated, “Once again, Putnam Leasing is privileged and honored to be working with Gooding & Company as their exclusive leasing agent as we embark on this new horizon in the luxury automotive auction industry. After more than thirty years serving the collector car market, we are incredibly eager to assist Gooding and their customers doing business in this new auction platform."
