1967 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder Conversion On Offer

On offer from Mike Sheehan...and No, the fighter jet is not included in the price

We are pleased to offer 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 N.A.R.T. Spyder conversion s/n 10473, one of only fifteen NART Spyder conversions built. A gorgeous user-friendly Ferrari with light steering, a clutch that can be used in daily traffic, good torque for city driving and the classic Ferrari V-12 shriek at RPM! Needs nothing. A gorgeous car priced to sell at $1,195,500 O.B.O.

Fully documented ownership history from new, one owner for twenty-five years. A near flawless Spyder conversion done by Mike McCluskey of Cobra restoration fame with factory-quality metalwork, finished in superb Ferrari red paint with black leather with light grey carpets. Part of a large collection and always maintained, detailed and ready to go. Excellent chrome trim, excellent Borrani wire wheels and very good Michelin XWX tires. Complete with the original tool roll and tools. Nicely detailed engine bay.

Nice car but....

No offense intended and this is certainly a wonderful car, but it's definitely not a NART Spyder. There are 10 of those which were built by Ferrari, modified & bodied by Scaglietti back in the day on special order from Luigi Chinetti (sole Ferrari importer at the time). Again, this is a great car and similar in some ways but it's not a NART Spyder.

May want to re-read the listing because it doesn't claim to be a NART Spyder, but a Spyder conversion...

To quote: "A near flawless Spyder conversion done by Mike McCluskey of Cobra restoration fame with factory-quality metalwork..."

Given that a real NART Spyder brought $7 million this year, I think a quality conversion like this for $1,195,500 isn't too bad. I'm a coupe guy myself though.

I think $1.2m for a butchered 275 is quite a lot of money. You know, I'm getting more purist by the minute. People should stop cutting old Ferraris up!

If my 330GTC was converted in future to a 365GTS (which is very easy to do) I would be horrified! But these pretenders would pay good money for it.

You are wise to be more purist because the smart money is following suit. And I agree with your thoughts on cutting up Ferraris...it must end!
