Editor’s note: This is the 27th in a 30-day sponsored series featuring cars to be sold January 14-22 during Barrett-Jackson’s 46th Scottsdale auction.

Offered during the 46th annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, this numbers-matching 365 GTB/4 coupe was professionally converted to a 365 GTB/4 Spider by Richard Straman in the 1980s.

The engine of this Ferrari,  known as the Tipo 251, was developed from the earlier Colombo V12 used in the 275 GTB/4. It features six Weber twin carburetors and produces 352 horsepower with a 0-60 miles per hour acceleration in just 5.4 seconds.

This particular car has 80,574  miles since new and has been driven less than 2,000 miles per year by the same owner of more than 20 years.

It is seen with new Ferrari Fly Yellow paint and new leather interior with a new set of Borrani wire wheels.
