Ferrari 365 GTC
1968 Ferrari 365 GTC; 1 of just 168 examples produced. Original EU-spec vehicle finished in Rosso over Nero.
The Ferrari 330 GTC was revealed at the 1966 Geneva Salon, designed to complement Ferrari's more sporting 275 GTB. Featuring design touches from the most beautiful models Ferrari made up until that year, a chassis closely related tothe 275 GTB and the legendary V12 Colombo providing the power; it was widely considered at the time to be one of the finest GT cars ever made.
Nevertheless in 1968 the 330 GTC received upgrades, resulting in a further 20bhp, which led to it being named the 365 GTC, made distinctive from the former by having the air vents moved from the wings to the bonnet.
In addition to the extra power, there were far fewer made, with only 168 (as opposed to the 598 330 GTCs) produced between 1968 and 1970.
The 365 GTC offered here, in the traditional Ferrari colour of Rosso Corsa and a Nero leather interior, is a European specification car delivered to its first owner in Campisi, Italy. It spent a very short time on home soil before travelling to the USA where it spent the majority of its life before being brought to Spain in 1999. Since then it has spent time in Germany, the UK and again in the USA. It does have a 365 engine, but will require a Classiche block to obtain certification.
This 365 GTC represents and offers everything that one should be seeking in a late 1960s Ferrari; a luxurious interior, two seats, a front engine V12, over 300bhp and a five-speed gearbox. With all these considered, this is a Ferrari icon delivering serious amounts of pace underneath the grace of its timeless Pininfarina styled body. With only 168 made, opportunities to purchase these are rare and not to be missed.
