Santa Monica, CA — With its Phil Hill Collection online sale opening Nov. 30, Gooding & Company announced Monday that it will conduct its annual Scottsdale auction on the Geared Online platform.
The Jan. 18-22 online-only auction will offer a selection of reserve and no reserve lots across an array of automotive history. An early sale docket highlight is a fresh-to-market 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Long Nose.
Introduced at the 1965 Paris Salon, the 275 GTB continued Ferrari’s tradition of offering a thoroughbred dual-purpose sports car to its most demanding customers. Performance was electrifying, thanks to a new 3.3-liter V-12, five-speed transaxle, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. The car’s sleek and seductive coachwork, designed by Pininfarina and crafted by Scaglietti, recalled earlier berlinettas such as the 250 Tour de France and GTO.
Numbered 08863, this late-production example features the desirable long nose bodywork and torque-tube driveshaft. This 275 GTB was delivered new through Western U.S. distributor Modern Classic Motors to a Ferrari enthusiast based in Portland, Oregon. It remained in his family’s ownership for over five decades. Never before restored, displayed, or offered for public sale and showing just over 40,000 original miles, this 275 GTB remains in well-preserved condition.
Gooding & Company will house all vehicles offered in the online auction at the company’s Southern California facility for on-site inspections by bidders.
