    It was my dads in the ‘60s. He let me drive it whenever I wanted under fear of death if I put a scratch on it. It’s the only pic I have of the car.

    OMG, How cool were you?
    Lucky man to drive a classic Ferrari.
    What were the years you got to drive it? How old were you?
    I JUST drove a 275GTB/4 a few days ago. The oldest I've driven.

    Original color was not white.
    And the car has another owner than the one listed here, since July 2011.

    Interesting! I really thought Barchetta.cc was one of the most accurate sources. Am I wrong and should I NOT rely on it as much as I do?
    Eye opener!
    Thank you

    Sold long ago , maybe dad is watching it from above .
    Oh yes he had many others . Sequentially , not simultaneously, we weren’t rich but dad did well and spent his discretionary bucks on cars and eventually Ferrari’s . I think he swapped , bought and sold all from Luigi Chinetti .
    I have more pics of some of his cars i will post over time .
    I’m about to step back to my past and buy a 360 for myself .
