Rare Ferrari creating buzz at Gooding & Company Auction

Posted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -

One car at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale is getting a lot of hype this year, an old barn yard find, a 1967 Ferrari.

"Wow, what an amazing find... just to see it for the first time in a barn or where ever you found it is amazing" said Judy Albarian.

"This is a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS Spyder. Ferrari built 99 of these and most all of them have survived, this one was unknown for decades" said Gary Hammers with Gooding & Company.

A head turner among the most beautiful cars ever made, this 1967 gem finally made it out of an old barn one of a hundred made by Ferrari in it's original celeste blue paint and leather upholstery.

"I think it'd be great to be here when they auction it off" said Dave Beach.

TV Host and appraiser Donald Osborn admired the rare automobile, "It's a car that actually engenders really really strong emotions, some people say it should absolutely be preserved exactly as is others say it's a great restoration project".

The story behind it, purchased by a reconstructive surgeon in New York City in 1967 a car collector himself then sold at auction when it suffered a small engine fire.

"It's been in storage since 1969 there was a small engine fire that took it off the road in 69 and it's been in hiding ever since so this is what people mean when they talk about a barn find" said Hammers.

"It would be fun to see what happens to it but boy o boy it's going to be a lot of work" said Beach.

"This is the greatest feeling in the world to find a car in this condition, it's easy to find something already restored but to find something no one else knows about that's the greatest feeling in the world just like Christmas" said host of the TV show "Chasing Cars" Wayne Carini.

"It's georgous look at it, it's a piece of art is what it is" said Albarian.

The experts and enthusiasts getting a first hand look at the glory of automotive art.
