My first Ferrari was in 1974, a beat up 275 GTB short nose, in Chicago, so it didn't get much use. I paid $8,500 for it, and sold it for the same price 2 years later. No idea what the VIN was. When I moved to San Diego in 1976, I looked for another 275 and found a great one, #8603, paying $22,500 for it, and it was in museum condition. I drove the car every day for a few years, and loved it. Sold it for $22,500 after beating that poor car day after day, and driving it at speed up Torrey Pines hill more times than I can count. That car, #8603 will be auctioned by Sotheby's in a few days, in Monterrey, expecting $2+ million. https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/MO19/Monterey/lots/r0033-1966-Ferrari-275-GTB-by-Scaglietti/777101 Great photos at that link, and the history of the car, mentioning my ownership. Now the question... In the history of the car, it mentions that the first owner was a "Mr. Cochran of Los Angeles". Could that be the infamous Johnnie Cochran, who defended O.J. Simpson ("If it doesn't fit, you must acquit") ? Over the years, I've owned a total of 4 different 275 GTBs, including 2 4-cam cars, one short nose, and one long nose (the car being auctioned). Currently my daily driver is a California T, in Pozzi Blue, and I love it. Image Unavailable, Please Login Thanks for reading, and hopefully an answer. Attached is a photo of the car, and me, at Big Sur, in 1977. I drove that car up and down Highway 1 many times, with a huge smile on my face.
