1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4
s/n 10563, engine no. 10563
Pino Verde with Arancia Leather

Originally launched as the 275 GTB, it did not take long before Ferrari would unleash the most powerful and refined version to the eager motorsports public - the quad cam GTB or GTB/4. Unveiled at the Paris Auto Salon in October 1966, the 275 GTB/4 was a monumental Ferrari. The first Ferrari four-cam road car, the GTB/4 owed a great deal to sports racing prototypes of the era, heralding the future of Ferrari performance engines.

Building from the finely proportioned long-nose two-cam 275 GTB, Scaglietti added a slight bulge on the bonnet, hinting at the 3.3-liter tipo 226 engine beautifully cloaked beneath. The final design was inspired by Ferrari’s successful line of prototype cars, featuring double-overhead-cam cylinder heads, and dry sump lubrication. All of this snapped to life from an impressive lineup of six Weber 40DCN carburetors, a desirable option on earlier 275 GTBs. The result was a free-revving 300 bhp engine with improved low-end torque and greater overall usability. Beyond its exquisite four-cam engine, the 275 GTB/4 benefited from other impressive refinements, from the improved torque-tube driveshaft to more modern interior appointments. Beautiful, civilized, and devastatingly fast, Ferrari’s four-cam berlinetta owned the roadways of 1967 and remains today highly prized in the hearts and minds of performance enthusiasts.

Marque historian Marcel Massini indicates this 275 GTB/4 (chassis 10563) was completed in fall 1967. Carozzeria Scaglietti finished the coachwork in brilliant and distinctive colors; Verde Pino (Pine Green) with an Arancia (Orange) leather interior. Though it was originally destined for sale in Italy, with delivery slated for Crepaldi’s dealership in Milan, the new Ferrari was grouped in a package of cars and delivered to official US distributor Luigi Chinetti Motors. In November 1967, Chinetti sold 10563 to west coast Ferrari distributor, Modern Classic Motors, Bill Harrah’s dealership in Reno, Nevada. In January 1968, 10563 was sold to its first private owner, the Hodges Chemical Company of Burlingame, California. A series of photographs taken in 1969 show the Ferrari as a virtually new car, wearing black-and-yellow California license plates, numbered “VYA 674.”
In July 1971, the second owner, Roger Selby of Redwood City, California purchased the car. Mr. Selby, an avid enthusiast and successful motorcycle dealer, kept the four-cam for over five years before selling it to Harley Cluxton’s Grand Touring Cars, Inc. in Phoenix. After having its engine and transaxle rebuilt, the Ferrari was sold to Mark Magruder, a resident of Grand Junction, Colorado. Magruder owned the car for a brief period, selling it back to Mr. Cluxton in October 1977.

In April 1978, Mr. Cluxton sold the four-cam to well-known collector Dr. Ronald Finger of Savannah, Georgia. Dr. Finger owned many important Ferraris during this period, including an aluminum-bodied 275 GTB/4 and a 250 GTO, both raced by Chinetti’s North American Racing Team. He retained 10563 until 1981, subsequently selling it to James “Kirk” Kircher of Ludington, Michigan. Mr. Kircher was the first owner to display 10563 as a show car, entering it in the Ferrari Club of America National Meeting held in Asheville, North Carolina, in June 1981 and at the next two FCA National Meetings, in 1982 and 1983, earning back-to-back Best in Class awards. In late 1983, the prize-winning 275 GTB/4 was sold, via The Stables Ltd., to respected collector Sherman M. Wolf of Amherst, New Hampshire. Well-known in Ferrari circles, Mr. Wolf was a passionate enthusiast who lovingly maintained and regularly enjoyed campaigning cars in events such as the Colorado Grand. Mr. Wolf kept 10563 until 1998, when it was sold to Mel Weiss of Kinnelon, New Jersey.

Today, 10563 remains as a fantasticly original, properly maintained four-cam Ferrari of exceptional provenance. Artfully preserved in the hands of knowledgeable caretakers for decades, 10563 presents beautifully and performs properly, as experienced in recent outings. Repainted and reupholstered using correct materials, colors, and proper paint formulation, this Ferrari remains in remarkably original order having never required a complete restoration. This Ferrari GTB/4 retains its original matching-numbers engine, data tags, and delightful period features, such as genuine Marchal headlamps and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. Today the odometer displays 42,435 miles, which is believed to be original based on previous recordings of 31,000 miles in 1976 and 40,000 miles in 1983.

10563 is offered with a factory original tool roll with jack in excellent condition, and the leather ownership handbook folio containing the spare parts catalog, mint original owner’s manual, dealer directory, and sales brochure. Additional references include 10563 appearing in Hilary A. Raab Jr., Ferrari Serial Numbers Part I, chassis number listed p. 113 and in Cavallino, Issue No. 34, “The Four-Cam” by Dyke W. Ridgley. This exceptional car is accompanied by a detailed report compiled by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini as well as copies of period photographs, correspondence, and ownership records.

This spectacular and largely original matching numbers 275 GTB/4 possesses all the qualities one looks for in a desirable collector Ferrari. The magnificent Pine Green color and stunning interior accent the four-cam road-going capabilities of this highly desirable performance icon. It is no wonder that GTB/4s have proven themselves as blue chip investment vehicles in recent decades. Quite simply, this GTB/4 is an outstanding example of Ferrari’s finest front engine, twelve-cylinder masterpiece - a unique and enduring tribute to the glory days of sports car design.
