1972 FERRARI 365 GTC/4
--Azzuro Metalizatto with Blue leather interior and Blue carpets, Restored, Cromodora 5-star wheels, Documented by Massini.
Designated for the U.S. market, this particular 365 GTC/4 was delivered new to Bill Harrah’s Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada. It is believed that the car was kept by Harrah himself as personal transportation and as such it is likely the July 1972 Road & Track magazine cover car with the full road test featured inside.
The car was later recorded as being owned by Paul Exton of Eureka, California, still in its original color combination of Grigio Argento over Nero Cogolo with red inserts. It remained on the West Coast until at least 1985 and prior to purchase by Dan Harwitz of Miami, Florida. By this time it had been painted Azzurro Metallizzato paintwork with had a new black leather interior.
In May of 2011, the car had been purchased by Mario Bernardi of Hann-Münden, Germany. During his ownership, the car was fully restored and refinished yet again in its lovely shade of Azzurro Metallizzato. It returned to the United States in 2013 when purchased by Autosport Designs, Inc. and on behalf of one of our clients. We were instructed to reupholster the interior in Blue leather with matching Blue carpets to bring this GTC/4 to absolutely superb condition throughout and as presented today.
More recently, a service by Autosport Designs to ensure it is in excellent running condition, at this time it was fitted with new Michelin XWX’s tires. This 365 GTC/4 is accompanied by a healthy file of service and restoration documentation.
The 365 GTC/4 combines classic, aggressive Ferrari beauty with practicality. Easily capable of taking to the open road for long tours, this particular 365 GTC/4 is a wonderful example of the breed.
