• Numbers-Matching & Beautifully Preserved!

The 365 GT 2+2 was built for the sporting enthusiast with friends or children and gives the quintessential 1960s vintage Ferrari experience with the last of the curvaceous Pininfarina–bodied grand tourers, powered by the final iteration of the Colombo V–12 two–cam engine. The interior is roomy for two adults and two children for long distance touring. The inclusion of additional convenience and luxury features further enhanced the car’s comfort, while the familiar front-mounted 4.4 liter V12 and striking Pininfarina styling ensured that the car retained all of the traditional positive Ferrari traits.
This particular example is a European market car which was imported to the USA by Thomas Crohman in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Located in Southern California by the mid-1980s, the car received an engine and transmission overhaul by Modena Sport Cars, Inc in West Hollywood in 1985, at which time the odometer showed 91,000 kms. In 1992, still under the same ownership, the front suspension was rebuilt. In 2000, the carburetors were rebuilt, as was the starter, and the radiator was re-cored. More recently, under its previous ownership period which started in 2003, work included a rebuilt alternator, carburetor tune and balance, distributor service and tune, replacement of the spark plug wires and voltage regulator, replacement of select front and rear suspension bushings and the rear shocks (a conversion to coil over units), servicing of the CV joints, replacement of window motors, and fuel pumps, re-coring the radiator, and replacement of the ignition switch, as well as the starter. Accordingly, the car starts easily and operates quite well, including the air conditioning. We invite a closer inspection.
Cosmetically, the car is a “nice driver” example. The paint appears to be the original color, and is in good condition throughout. Likewise, the brightwork is in “good driver” condition, as is the window glass. The car sits on correct Cromadora wheels, with a matching spare. Original leather upholstery remains in the interior, which shows some age, but is nicely preserved. The dash wood is nice and presents beautifully, as does the headliner. The engine bay is largely original and correct, including the battery hold down and air cleaner housing. The trunk is attractive in its original condition.
This lovingly maintained example with over $48,000 in receipts on file for regular maintenance offers an outstanding opportunity to acquire a well arranged and capable driver. With sleek styling reminiscent of the 330 and 500 Superfast, as well as a proficient powertrain and comparatively modern chassis, a nicely sorted 365 GT 2+2 is a pleasure to own and use.
