It's real.  It's a 1967 model. One of four cars delivered new to Australia.

Yep.

250GTOs were produced b/w 1962 and 1964.  36 were built.  They're worth anywhere between 5 to 10 million pounds depending on condition and provenance.  No 250GTOs have ever resided in Australia (unlike the 250LM), although we've had a couple of visitors come for short stays (for eg, Sir Paul Vestey's car s/n 4115 which came out for Classic Adelaide, and Tom Price's car s/n 3943 which was here at the PI historics a couple of years ago).  The best of the best is s/n 4293 currently owned by Chip Connor from the UK.  This car came second overall at Le Mans (first in class) in 1963.  After its short and successful racing career, it was owned by a number of Californians (one of whom replaced it with a new E-Type as he could not fit his golf clubs in the GTO) including founder of the Laguna historics, Steve Earle.  This car has never been crashed or hit (either as a race car or road car) and is completely and utterly original and untouched (and in fantastic condition to boot!).  The best 250GTO in existence, bar none.   

My 2nd favourite Ferrari after the greatest of all time: the 250SWB!  :)
