Car collectors heading to Monterey Car Week in August will have plenty of treasures vying for their money, including two 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS models in very different condition offered at the RM Sotheby’s auction. A restored blue car originally owned by artist James Wyeth looks like it just drove off the showroom floor, and it has won many awards. A silver 330 GTS offered will need restoration. It’s one of 20 rare Ferrari that sat in a Florida barn for years before Hurricane Charley destroyed the building in 2004. The Ferrari then sat in an Indianapolis warehouse until this year. Offered at no reserve, it will definitely be going to a new home.
Scheduled for Thursday January 16th and Friday January 17th from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. both days, the RM Sotheby’s auction will present a diverse selection of nearly 170 fine collector vehicles, ranging from the prewar era to the blindingly fast supercars of the present.
The Ferrari 275 GTS was positioned as the more comfortable everyday driver. Its interior appointments were a bit more luxurious, with fully adjustable and more accommodating bucket seats, plus more luggage space. The 275 GTS that sold at the Mecum Monterey auctioned for $1.1m (pre-sale estimate was $1.1m-$1.4m).
