1965 FERRARI 275 GTS
Another rare classic Ferrari is the 275 GTS, a sleek design on the legendary 275 chassis and running gear, making it a fantastic convertible touring car. This particular car is a period converted 6 carburettor example which we sold to the owner many years ago.
In late 2014 he decided to give the car a ‘birthday present' and commissioned a ground up restoration from us. The body was stripped of all components and then everything, down to the last nut, bolt, bush and bearing was painstakingly cleaned, checked, renewed where necessary or restored. A classic Ferrari should be repaired and restored, not renewed.
We try to maintain as many parts as possible to keep the cars as original as possible and our aim is always to restore original parts rather than renew them. On completion in 2016 the completed car was entered into the Ferrari Owners Club concours and was rewarded with Best In Class – which was wonderful recognition of all our passionate hard work we at Bob Houghton Ltd put into all our cars.
