Footnotes

  • Introduced towards the end of 1972, the 365 GT4 2+2 was the biggest and best equipped four-seater Ferrari so far. Flagship of the Maranello range, it reaffirmed Ferrari's determination to compete with the world's finest luxury saloons. Based on the preceding 365 GT 2+2, albeit lower, longer and wider, the newcomer was fitted with a four-cam version of the 4.4-litre V12 engine while retaining its predecessor's mechanical underpinnings. A total of only 524 had been completed by the time production ceased in 1976.
    A rare right-hand drive manual transmission model supplied new in the UK via Maranello Concessionaires, this fine example of the ultimate Ferrari of its day was purchased by the current vendor from a UK auction in 2014. The comprehensive history file reveals that the Ferrari was previously owned by Peter Morgan of the Morgan Motor Company and registered with his private registration number 'AB 16'. The car comes complete with Mr Morgan's engraved umbrella together with the original leather wallet, handbooks, warranty card, tool roll/spare parts kit, and bill of sale.
    Since the vendor's purchase the car has benefited from considerable expenditure and gained the all-important Ferrari Classiche certification. In February 2016 Maranello Concessionaires carried out extensive works that included replacing the exhaust system; replacing the cam cover gaskets and seals; replacing the steering box; overhauling the suspension; replacing the rear shock absorbers and springs; and fitting four new Michelin tyres at a cost of £34,500. Later that year the Ferrari appeared on the cover of Classic & Sports Car magazine's September 2016 edition as part of a 'Family Supercars' feature.
    More recently, in November 2019, MDS Services carried out extensive works that included overhauling the engine; stripping, cleaning and reassembling the carburettors and ignition distributors; rebuilding the differential; overhauling the steering idler box; fitting new exhaust heat shields; and refurbishing the dashboard instruments and steering column controls. MDS's bill for £22,644 is on file (perusal recommended).
    Finished in Azzuro (blue) with matching leather interior, this beautiful four-seater Ferrari is described by the private vendor as in very good/excellent condition and offered with its Classiche 'Red Book'.
