THE FERRARI 365 GTC/4

Introduced at the March 1971 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari 365 GTC/4 was derived from the chassis of the 365GTB/4 Daytona of 1968. The engine was similar to the 4,390cc DOHC V12 of the Daytona, but new heads and a lower compression ratio of 8.8:1 lowered the brake horsepower to 340, slightly less for emissions-controlled American cars. Six side-draft Weber 38 DCOE carburetors fueled the engine, which used wet sump lubrication.

The wheelbase, at 94.5 inches, remained unchanged. Improvements included standard power steering and a larger luggage compartment, while the side-draft carburetors allowed a lower hood line. In contrast to the Daytona, however, which used a rear-mounted transaxle, the GTC/4 had its gearbox, a five-speed manual unit, mounted to the engine. The suspension was independent all around, with unequal-length control arms and coil springs, an anti-roll bar and hydraulic self-leveling.

Designed and built by Pininfarina, the coupe bodies were shipped to Maranello for assembly. The low hood permitted by the side-draft carburetors incorporated retractable headlamps, and a handsome Kamm tail featured traditional Ferrari tail lamps. The interior was a completely new design with more comfortable seating, although the occasional "+2" seats in the rear were best used folded as luggage space. The seats had cloth inserts as standard, for comfort in warm weather, although air conditioning was standard. Full leather upholstery was available as an option.

The 365 GTC/4's handling has always been described as "phenomenal," even when taking into consideration the tire technology of the time. The brakes, combined with the 11-plus-inch ventilated discs all around, were similarly up to the task.

Just 505 GTC/4s were built from 1971 to 1973. Road & Track called the GTC/4 "a graceful, clean and understated design"; it is all of that and more.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This marvelous 365 GTC/4 was originally delivered to its first owner through Ferrari's West Coast distributor, William Harrah's Modern Classic Motors of Nevada. Dressed in Rosso Corsa (International Racing Red) with black leather interior and black carpets, this 365 GTC/4 is spectacular with Borrani wheels and the correct restored factory steering wheel. It comes with the 5-speed manual transmission and factory air conditioning.

The ownership of this car has been documented by Marcel Massini and is accompanied by a service history. At some point the car was restored and it was obviously cared for and serviced by dedicated collectors throughout its lifetime, as it remains in fine condition and is as impressive on the road as it is on the concours lawn.

Currently showing 51,000 original miles on the odometer, the car recently underwent a thorough engine servicing as well as suspension and brake work. This Ferrari has received a refurbished interior and new carpets. The center console wood veneer has been refinished, and the air conditioning overhauled. Detailed attention was paid to the restoration of the Borrani wheels and new Michelin XWX tires and factory bonnet pad were fitted. Close inspection will demonstrate that panel fit and body gaps are very good. Add to this the visceral tailpipe soundtrack of the legendary Ferrari V12, and the package is complete - a surefire wish-list item for any dedicated Ferrari collector.

This GTC/4 comes with books, tools, factory jack, hammer and history file.
