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 250 GTE of 1960, Ferrari introduced the 330 GT 2+2 in January 1964. Its replacement, the 365 GT 2+2, was launched at the Paris Auto Show in October 1967. Sleekly styled in the manner of the limited edition 500 Superfast, the 365 GT 2+2 was the most refined Ferrari to date.

Based on that of the contemporary 330 GTC, 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

Fifteen years ago when the consigner's children were little, he looked for a car with enough seats to bring them to shows. As a prominent New England investor and businessman, he wanted something special, and he found it in this lovely 4-seat Ferrari 365, which was part of the prestigious Blackhawk Collection. At the time of acquisition, the odometer showed just over 14,000 miles. The previous owners reported more than $20,000 in engine and other work.

The consigner has continued to provide meticulous care, with recent major service, new exhaust, new shocks and suspension, and a full tune up. All the fluids are fresh, and the car is ready to go anywhere. The car has seen very light use; the odometer today remains under 16,000 miles.

Years before, the consigner had loved watching Don Johnson's Ferrari Daytona in Miami Vice. This car was the closest thing he could find that could accommodate a family. Today, his kids are grown and they have their own automotive interests.

This particular Ferrari 365 presents very well. Finished in red with tan leather both show in equally good order in no part thanks to being looked after by a prominent New England region European auto specialist. Ferrari 365 2+2s make excellent high-speed rally cars, and are excellent cars for those needing more space. Sure to bring enjoyment to the next owner, the opportunity to acquire this should not be missed.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note, although the Ferrari has seen little use over the past decades, the stated mileage has not been documented at this time. The interior has a few small items which would benefit from some attention as well. Also note, the title for this vehicle is in transit.
