The 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB by Scaglietti that Throttled Down the Beltway

This 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB by Scaglietti no doubt spent a lot of time on the DC beltway being driven by former U.S. Senator from Illinois Adlai Ewing Stevenson III. The Ferrari was built with alloy bodywork, starting out as a 275 GTB with triple carburetors and a CV joint transmission. The original design called for a Ross Chiaro finish with a Nero interior with full leather seats—which is how it still is today.

After its time serving the senator, the Ferrari went to a California resident before moving to Vancouver, British Columbia. By 1986, the Ferrari had changed hands again, being sold first to Mike Sheehan and then traded to a Swiss broker, who took the car to the South of France. From France, the Ferrari made its way to Portugal, where the interior was re-trimmed in tan, fitted with a new hood that had a raised bulge, and then fitted with a black air intake and grille. The car toured Europe, trading hands as it went, before ending up in Switzerland in 2011. The car was then sent to Italy for a full restoration to original specifications. The body was reworked, and the interior re-trimmed. Mechanics overhauled the engine. Despite all the work, the car has been confirmed as having retained all of its original major mechanical components by Ferrari Classiche.
