Rarely Rallied Or Raced – Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta #3709GT

When I first saw today’s Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta at last years Goodwood Revival I thought it might be the Berlinetta Competizione #3005 I looked at earlier this month.

However it turns out, thanks to a passing remark by Mark Shannon at Ferrari Chat that this car is more likely the 83rd SWB Berlinetta built, chassis #3709 and that it has a steel body rather than the competition aluminium one.

Further research indicates #3709 may have had as few as four owners, it was sold originally in July 1962 to Ettore Buzzi in Italy and it would appear that he kept the car for at least 32 years before it was offered for sale in Switzerland in 1994. During that time it is only recorded as having taken part in one event the 80 th Anniversary of sport at the ACI with Ferrari at Modena in September 1985.

In 1999 the car was acquired by the current owner and since then it’s only recorded public appearance was in the 1999 Prada Italia Classica a classic car rally.
