While not yet a vintage racer, this Porsche 911 GT America is a factory-built race car, developed to compete in the GT Daytona class of the United Sports Car Racing series, and ready to get on track again.

Claiming over 36 years of single-family ownership, and displaying impressive unrestored originality, this Ferrari is a highly desirable example of Maranello’s early short-nose 275. According to the research of marque expert Marcel Massini, chassis number 06609 completed assembly in early February 1965, specified with instruments in miles. The coachwork was finished in Rosso and the interior was upholstered with Nero Vaumol leather made by Connolly.
