With superb looks and a striking resemblance to its predecessor the
fabulous Daytona, the 365 GTC/4 offers both exceptional comfort and
stunning performance. With more cabin space due to its elongated
chassis, the GTC/4 can accommodate four passengers, their luggage,
and whisk them away in quintessential Italian style. Impressively
outfitted with ZF power steering, power brakes, radio, and
sumptuous Italian leather, the 365 GTC/4 was purpose-built to carry
its passengers across the continent at speed and in complete
comfort. One of only 505 examples produced from 1971-1972, this
Ferrari is much rarer than both its predecessors.
According to marque historian Marcel Massini, this 365 GTC/4,
chassis no. 14969, was the 130th example built. It was delivered
new to Bill Harrah's Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada, in U.S.
specification and fitted with power windows, air conditioning, and
instrumentation in miles. Though originally delivered in the
eye-catching Verde Medio Niyinsky, it has been repainted in its
current shade of Nero. The paint remains in very good condition
overall, while the interior appears to be largely original and
shows a beautiful, inviting patina throughout. It wears highly
attractive Cromodora wheels shod with Michelin tires and has been
fitted with an aftermarket Blaupunkt stereo system. Included in the
sale is its Ferrari tool kit, jack, and owner's manual.
Considered by many to be the more practical iteration of the famed
Ferrari Daytona, the 365 GTC/4 combines the same aggressive Ferrari
styling and the iconic Colombo V-12, but with exceptional
practicality. Easily capable of taking to the open road for
long-distance tours at speed, this 365 GTC/4 is a wonderful and
highly usable example.
