This fabulous Ferrari 275 GTB/4 No. 10803 has seen limited ownership and use during its life. Being presented in astonishingly original condition, it is truly an outstanding buying opportunity. Following production and shipment to the US, No. 10803 was sold new by official Ferrari distributor Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut, to Edward A. Skae, a resident of Lake Forest, Illinois. As documented by a copy of a check issued from Chinetti in the amount of $5,000, Mr. Skae traded a Lamborghini Miura and a Maserati Ghibli for the 275 GTB/4. Interestingly, Harley Cluxton picked up No. 10803 at Chinetti’s and drove it to Mr. Skae’s home via Ontario, Canada. To Ferrari enthusiasts, Harley Cluxton is well known as an eventual Ferrari racer (with Luigi Chinetti’s backing), among his many exploits.


In August 1969, Mr. Skae (who bought and sold sports cars frequently) sold the Ferrari to Carl C. Gagliano of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mr. Gagliano used it only sparingly and provided superb maintenance and garage storage. A body-shop receipt in the amount of $200 documents very minor damage incurred when the front of the car was scraped by the family lawn mower. Mileage under Mr. Gagliano’s tenure was quite limited, as shown by an oil-change sticker still on the car; dated May 30, 1982, with just 9,690 miles. As part of his care for the car, Mr. Gagliano is said to have continuously greased the undercarriage in the winter months to prevent corrosion; he also claimed to have never washed the car with water! Following Mr. Gagliano’s passing in 1996, the Ferrari went to his son, Bill, a long-running Milwaukee-area SCCA member, who drove the car infrequently before preserving the underside and wheels, and placing it onto stands in long-term garage storage.

Expertly recommissioned and carefully preserved, No. 10803 took to the field at top-level events, beginning with the 2013 edition of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where it earned a Second Place podium in Class L-2: Postwar Preservation. In January 2014, No. 10803 was shown at the XXIII Cavallino Classic at Palm Beach, Florida, where it earned three awards. It achieved Platinum Awards in both restored and unrestored classes and took the Preservation Cup for vintage Ferraris. Clearly, No. 10803 is a Vintage Ferrari of the highest caliber. It is one of the most beautiful, purposeful and sought-after models ever built and, with its exceptional originality, it is one that is certain to delight its fortunate new owner. Complete with perfect books and factory-original tool roll (wrapped in factory paper), it is unrestored and stands as one of the most original 275s remaining in existence.


In October 1964, the 275 GTB made its landmark debut at the Paris Auto Salon alongside its convertible 275 GTS stablemate to replace the outgoing and long-running 250 GT and its many variants. The 275 GTB signaled a landmark evolution in Ferrari road cars, as it had a fully independent suspension layout, which had been tested, developed, and proven on the track beginning with the famed Testarossa in the early 1960s.

For the 275 model, the size of the V-12 engine was increased from the three liters of the outgoing 250 GT to 3,286 cc, with each cylinder now displacing roughly 275 cc, hence the “275” designation. Designed by Pininfarina and bodied by longtime Ferrari partner Scaglietti, the 275 GTB echoed many of the purposefully aggressive outward cues of the 250 GT Tour de France and 250 GTO. Today, it remains one of the most sought-after and collectible Ferraris ever produced, particularly in the ultimate four-cam 275 GTB/4 specification.

The engine, driveline, and rear-mounted transaxle of the GTB/4 were combined into one sub-assembly, mounted to the chassis at four points, producing a rigid car with superb and neutral handling and a near-perfect 50/50 weight bias. Although the 275 GTB/4 was a trendsetting road car in many regards, it was also the last true coachbuilt dual-purpose road/race berlinetta in the greatest Ferrari tradition. Accordingly, many examples led a dual life, winning at road courses and hill climbs on weekends while being utilized for stylish and sporty transportation during the week.


This wonderfully preserved Ferrari 275 GTB four cam is a true time capsule of the golden era of Ferrari. It has been in the hands of only four very passionate owners that used it sparingly and cared for it meticulously: by 2009 the car had just 9,000 miles and it now shows 10,246. It has won Platinum awards and has been regarded as one of the best preserved 275 GTBs in the world by the most attentive judges. All of this puts No.10803 a step ahead any 275 GTB/4 offered for sale and creates an incredible buying opportunity at this private offering.
