From the numbers and stamping position 06703 is believed to be one of the first 35 GTBs to be built (in 1964)!

Talacrest knows the Ferrari 275 GTB well having last had it in stock in 2013 and sold it to the last owner. During his ownership 06703 has been restored to it’s rare orginal colour of Grigio Azzurro. A true enthusiast the last owner entered the car into the 2014 Modena Cento Ore and then subsequently had the car sympathetically restored with a view to active use as well as obtaining Ferrari Classiche certification. The work included:

– Minor body refurbishment and repaint to original Grigio Azzurro
– Fitment of the original bumpers
– Fitment of roll cage
– Purchase of number plate 275 DA
– Complete engine rebuild by GTO
– Replacement of clutch
– Fitment of new propshaft
– Dashboard refurbishment

The bills which are documented from the last owner come to over £130k.

The engine when was last dyno tested, it produced a very healthy 314 BHP at 7900 rpm with 211 ib/ft of torque and predictably this translates into one of the best performing 275 GTB’s we have had the pleasure of holding in stock.

A fantastic example of a very early 275 GTB, 06703 is absolutely on the button and ready for an enthusiastic new custodian, who wants a really good example which drives as well as it looks!

Talacrest’s Chairman John Collins has had a life-long passion for Ferrari and used to run a Ferrari 246 Dino as his everyday road car as a photo journalist 38 years ago. Today his enthusiasm for Ferrari remains undiminished after selling approximately 1700 + classic Ferrari – and the thrill of conducting the next deal and helping collectors obtain their dream classic Ferrari is the driving force behind the company. The business was established in 1987 and has sold just about every classic Ferrari made – it would be easier to draw up a list of Ferrari NOT sold by Talacrest than those that they have sold. "You should bear in mind that with the volume of Ferrari that we have sold – sometimes we have sold an individual car many times over. A classic example being a Ferrari 275 GTB/2 6 carburettor alloy car that we have sold no less than 6 times!" Customers come back to Talacrest time and again – because buying or selling from the best is a straightforward process – and equally whatever cycle the market is in – the very best cars that we sell are always a good long term investment prospect, as well as an exciting ownership proposition.
