Footnotes

  • This imposing 4.4-litre V12 Ferrari's Certificato d'Origine was issued on April 28, 1969, and two days later it was sold to first owner Pierino Concari on the Via Catalani in Parma, Italy. Its original exterior colour is recorded as having been Grigio Ortello 2.443.813 while its original interior was in Beige VM 3234 Connolly.

    On April 30 that year the car was road-registered under the Parma licence plates 'PR 150770'. On May 25, 1970, the car was serviced at the Ferrari factory's famous Assistenza Clienti centre in the Viale Trento Trieste, Modena, the work being carried out to order No 259G, factory delivery note No 3141, and the odometer on that occasion reading 14,950kms.

    On July 11, 1970, the car re-visited the Assistenza, by which time its odometer reading was recorded as 17,755kms, and on September 16 that year it was yet again at the Assistanza, with 23,468kms noted. The following year, on September 13, 1971, the car's service record showed that it had covered up to that time 39,500kms.

    On July 9, 1976, 365 GT chassis '11873' offered here was sold by Signor Concari to its second owner, Giampaolo Rubertelli of the Via Garavaglia in Reggio Emilia. The car was re-registered on local plates, serial 'RE 276975'. Signor Rubertelli did not keep the car long, as in December 1977 he sold it on through the dealer, Emilian Auto Srl of Bologna to third owner Fabrizio Violati's Bellancauto SpA company of Rome.

    It thereafter became one of the Collezione Maranello Rosso Ferraris exhibited in the museum halls in San Marino and latterly at Falciano on the road east out of the tiny but celebrated Republic towards Rimini.

    By the mid-1960s, 50 per cent of all Ferraris produced were being built with four seats, and following on from the success of its first such quantity-production model - the 250 GTE of 1960 - Ferrari introduced the 330 GT 2+2 in January 1964. The newcomer's steel tube chassis was 2-inches longer in wheelbase than that of its predecessor, and it featured independent front suspension and a live rear axle, while beneath the 330's more-spacious Pininfarina coachwork was a 300bhp, 4-litre V12 engine, coupled to a fourspeed overdrive gearbox. That model's replacement, the Ferrari 365 GT 2+2, was then launched at the Paris Salon de l'Automobile exhibition in October 1967. Sleekly styled in the manner of the limited-edition 500 Superfast, the 365 GT 2+2 proved itself to be the most refined Ferrari built to that time.

    Based on the contemporary 330 GTC chassis, the 4.4-litre V12- engined 365 GT's frame comprised Ferrari's familiar combination of oval and round steel tubing. In addition to featuring independent suspension all round (for the first time on a Ferrari 2+2) the new model was also equipped with Koni's latest state- of-the-art hydropneumatic self-leveling system at the rear.

    Further refinements included mounting the engine and drivetrain in rubber bushes to insulate the car's occupants from noise and vibration, and offering ZF power-assisted steering and air conditioning as standard equipment.

    Developing 320bhp in its 365 GT incarnation, the well-proven 4.4-liter V12 engine was coupled to a five-speed gearbox, while the car's blistering performance - top speed 150mph, 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds – could be reined-in by Girling ventilated disc brakes all round. A total of 800 cars had been completed by the time production ceased in 1971. Endowed with that unusual combination of fine handling and a supple ride, the 365GT 2+2 was rated by the British 'Car' magazine as being "the most civilized Ferrari yet."

    After its many years as a static museum display car, this 365GT is offered in generally good but somewhat 'faded' condition and we recommend the closest technical inspection and recommissioning before a new owner runs it in earnest.

    Please note this vehicle is subject to import tax should it remain in the EU.
