1968 Ferrari 365GTC

Coachwork by Pininfarina

Available only in 1968-1969, the 365GTC is a rarity even by Ferrari standards. It represents the final, most powerful evolution of a model which the former F1 World Champion Phil Hill described as “the best road-going Ferrari ever built.”

One of just 150 cars to leave the Maranello factory, this elegant, understated granturismo combines the best of two worlds: classic Pininfarina styling with 4.4 litre V12 power to almost match a Daytona’s performance without the angular features or added weight of the latter. For that reason alone the 150mph 365GTC is a sought-after model amongst Ferrari collectors, and few can have led more sedate lives than this unrestored, ‘matching numbers’ example which has remained in Italy since the day it was delivered in December 1968 via dealer Motor SAS of Bologna, finished in Grigio Ortello with black leather upholstery.

In the present ownership for the past quarter century, and virtually unused during that time, it has been maintained by an old school Ferrari mechanic and was repainted in Pininfarina’s deep Rosso Cherry early on. Showing 85,375km on the odometer which the car’s condition supports as genuine, fitted with optional air conditioning and its factory jack, this is a handsome, hard to find Ferrari which is offered now for the first time on the open market.
