1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4

Description

The Ferrari 365 GTC was developed to meet the ever-growing demand among Ferrari’s clientele for high performance automobiles, while also accommodating up to four passengers. It was introduced in March 1971 to replace the 365 GTC, which had been phased out two years earlier. Enveloped in a sinuous and streamlined shape, it was clearly developed in Pininfarina’s new wind tunnel, which came into operation at the time the car was being developed. It was clear that Ferrari intended this to be a much sportier alternative to other 2+2 grand tourers on the market at the time.

Its engine was based on the Daytona’s 4.4-liter dual overhead-cam V-12, but the major difference was that the 365 GTCs utilized side-draft carburetion, which allowed for a sleeker and lower hood line. The chassis of the 365 GTC/4 was essentially that of a Daytona as well, albeit it was stretched an additional 100 millimeters for extra cabin room. As the 356 GTC/E employs completely unique body panels that were in no way continued from or carried over to any other model, it remains a particularly singular link in the Ferrari road car lineage, with just 500 examples built over an 18-month period.  As with all of Ferrari’s four-seat models throughout the company’s history, the 365 GTC/4 was lavishly appointed with sumptuous Italian leather, ZF power steering, a radio, and many models were equipped with air conditioning. Power steering and power brakes were standard, as well as a hydro-pneumatic self-levelling device on the rear suspension, which presumably helped to accommodate its owner’s luggage.

The 397th of 500 examples produced, ‘15615’ was supplied new to the USA in the classic combination of Argento Silver paint with a Nero leather interior, a combination it still wears today. Some years ago the 365 was repatriated into the EU, and into long term ownership (we note that the car was with the previous owner for 12 years). This beautiful Ferrari comes complete with jack, tool roll, instruction books and copies of previous South Carolina title and also the more recent French Carte Grise. This is a rare unrestored 365, enjoying only a repaint in its original colour some years ago. Four-seater Ferraris of any kind are ideal for grand touring, as they combine the best elements of Italian engineering and luxury. This 365 GTC/4 would be excellent for the individual looking to enjoy many fast-paced kilometres across Europe.

Le 397e de 500 exemples produit, ‘15615’ a été fourni nouvelle aux Etats-Unis dans la combinaison classique de Argento Argent peindre avec un intérieur en cuir Nero, une combinaison qu’il porte encore aujourd’hui. Il y a quelques années, le 365 a été rapatrié dans l’UE, la voiture était avec le propriétaire précédent pendant 12 ans. Cette belle Ferrari est livrée complet avec cric, porte-outils, livres d’instruction et des copies de titre précédent du Caroline du Sud et aussi le plus récent carte grise française. Ceci est une rare 365 pas restaurée, profitant seulement repeindre dans sa couleur d’origine il y a quelques années.  Quatre places Ferraris de toute nature sont idéales pour grand touring, car elles combinent les meilleurs éléments de l’ingénierie italienne et de luxe. Cette 365 GTC / 4 serait excellente pour l’individu qui cherchent à profiter de nombreux kilomètres au rythme rapide dans toute l’Europe.
