THE FERRARI 365GT 2+2

By the mid-1960s, fifty percent of all Ferraris produced were being built with four seats. Following on from the success of its first such model, the 250GTE of 1960, Ferrari introduced the 330GT 2+2 in January 1964. Its replacement, the 365GT 2+2, was launched at the Paris Auto Show in October 1967. Sleekly styled in the manner of the limited edition 500 Superfast, the 365GT 2+2 was the most refined Ferrari to date.

Based on that of the contemporary 330GTC, the chassis was made up of Ferrari's familiar combination of oval and round steel tubing, and in addition to featuring independent suspension all round (for the first time on a Ferrari 2+2) the car boasted Koni's hydro-pneumatic self-leveling system at the rear. Further refinements included mounting the engine and drive-train in rubber bushes to insulate the car's occupants from noise and vibration, and providing ZF power-assisted steering and air conditioning as standard equipment.

Developing 320bhp in its 365GT incarnation, the well-proven 4.4-liter V12 engine was coupled to a five-speed gearbox. The car's blistering performance - top speed 150mph, 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds - was restrained by Girling ventilated discs all around. Endowed with that unusual combination of fine handling and a supple ride, the 365GT 2+2 was rated by Car magazine as 'the most civilized Ferrari yet.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed in the February of 1968, the example offered here, chassis number 116111; was the 136th example built in the series. The new Ferrari was finished in Argento over a Nero Franzi interior, and was delivered to Franco-Britannic Autos Ltd, the official dealer for Ferrari in Levallois-Perret, France near Paris. The car had been equipped for the European market, with instruments in kilometers-per-hour.

The car's first owner after delivery is believed to have been a Mr. Prot in France. From there the Ferrari would head to Montreaux, Switzerland on the banks of Lake Geneva. The lush, mountainous region was no doubt the perfect place to own, drive and enjoy a car like this. In the late 1980s, 11611 was sent to Modena, Italy for restoration. By 2003 the Ferrari was stateside and showing 63,448km on the ticker. Advertised for sale in Long Island in 2005, it was indicated that the car's 65,200km were understood to be original.

In 2010/11, a full engine rebuild, exhaust system replacement, and suspension overhaul—including conversion of the rear shocks from the original self-leveling units to standard coil-over shocks—was performed at Classic Coach Repair in Elizabeth, New Jersey with receipts totaling over $120,000. Since the vendor bought the Ferrari in 2014, Boston Sportscar of Weston, Massachusetts has further rebuilt the transmission and installed a Becker Europa AM/FM radio at a cost of nearly $16,000. A new set of Avon radial tires and a new battery in an old-style case were fitted to the car in the summer of 2015.

The original Argento (silver) paint scheme is what the car still carries today and complemented with the black leather it all looks quite regal. The restoration has mellowed with age and some evidence of light corrosion is apparent on parts of the underside. The car still retains its original matching numbers engine, and is offered with a jack and a history file that includes copies of the nearly $150,000 in service receipts and Marcel Massini's history report.
