For Sale at Auction: 1972 Ferrari 365 GT4 in Amelia Island, Florida

Vehicle Description

Chassis No. 15635

The 365 GTC/4 joined the Ferrari lineup in 1971, filling the role previously occupied by the 365 GTC - positioned between the luxurious 365 GT 2+2 and the sporting 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Although it was a 2+2, it shared more in common with the Daytona than its predecessor, including its principal dimensions and its four-cam 4.4-liter V12 engine, albeit with side-draft rather than down-draft carburetors. As a result, the engine lost several centimeters of height, allowing for a plunging hood line that ran gently to a distinctive nose made of flexible black rubber forming the grille's perimeter. Otherwise, the exterior bore a close resemblance to its muscled stablemate, due mainly to its wedge profile, Kamm tail, pop-up headlights, and trademark five-spoke alloy wheels with knock-off hubs.

Designed with high-speed, long-distance journeys in mind, the 365 GTC/4 borrowed its power-assisted steering, power-assisted brakes, and oleo-pneumatic self-leveling rear suspension from the opulent 365 GT 2+2 grand tourer. Inside, the spacious cabin housed reclining front seats and small rear seats which could be folded down to accommodate additional luggage. Air conditioning and power electric windows were standard, while full Connolly leather upholstery was available as an option.

According to the research of Ferrari Historian Marcel Massini, this 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4 was constructed at the Pininfarina plant in Turin and shipped to Ferrari in Maranello for completion in July 1972. Chassis number 15635 was configured from the factory as a left-hand drive, U.S.-market example equipped with standard instrumentation in miles, air conditioning, power windows, as well as optional full Nero Cogolo Connolly leather upholstery. A month after completion, the new Ferrari was dispatched to renowned car collector and dealer William F. Harrah's Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada. By 1975, the car belonged to Neil O. Chamberlain of Los Alamitos, California. At some stage over the succeeding decade and a half, the Ferrari was refinished in black before entering the long-term care of restaurateurs William H. and Nadine Tilley of Alhambra, California in 1990, who would retain the car for an impressive 23 years. During the Tilleys' stewardship, the car was known to have been serviced and diligently maintained at Fast Cars Ltd. in Redondo Beach, California. Some years after William Tilley's passing in 2013, the Ferrari entered a respected collection of fine European sports cars where it was cherished until its acquisition by the current owner.

Today, this V12 Ferrari presents in a stealthy black over black specification which blends well with the black rubber grille surround. Correct 15 inch five-spoke cast alloy wheels are secured on all four corners with chrome knock-off hubs, while the trunk carries an optional Borrani wire spare wheel. Inside, the leather-wrapped steering wheel was recently refurbished under current ownership, while the leather front seat upholstery and ivory vinyl headliner have been redone in recent years and are also in good order. Other notable items in the cabin include a period-correct Becker Mexico stereo and an aftermarket, trunk-mounted air conditioning system with under-dash-mounted controls and rear vents.

Under previous ownership, the Ferrari was treated to a comprehensive mechanical recommissioning in 2015 at a cost of over $14,200, which included servicing the cylinder heads, rebuilding the six Weber carburetors, and installing a stainless-steel exhaust system. With its known, long-term California ownership history and association with the respected Tilley Collection, this well-provenanced and wonderfully presented V12 grand tourer is further complemented by its accompanying tool roll, owner's manuals, and partial service records. Currently showing just over 32,300 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging, this stunning 365 GTC/4 offers tremendous rarity as one of only 500 built.
