This Ferrari 365 GTC/4 is no longer available. Please contact us for any further information you may require.
The 365 GTC/4 was sold alongside Ferrari's Daytona for 18 months between 1971 and '72 - a Coupe rather than a Berlinetta as the designation would suggest. The GTC/4 arrived in March 1971 and was conceived as a more civilised version of the Daytona, offering additional luggage space and two very small rear seats. Power steering was fitted as standard with hydraulic self-levelling ride height at the back. Cromodora alloy wheels were fitted as standard but Borrani wires were optionally available. The powerplant was similar to the V12 found in the Daytona. Displacement of both was 4390cc, however, the GTC/4 featured new heads, wet sump lubrication and six sidedraught Weber 38 DCOE carbs. Output of the European version was 340bhp at 7000rpm, while performance wasn't far behind the crushingly fast Daytona, sprinting from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 163mph was possible.
As usual, the bodywork was designed by Pininfarina, but unlike the Daytona whose shells were made by Scaglietti in Modena, C/4 panels were fabricated by Pininfarina in Turin and shipped to Maranello for completion. Finished almost entirely from steel with the exception of alloy for the bonnet and boot lid, some commentators knocked the styling, citing its apparently 'un-Ferrari-like' appearance. Distinctive details were the matt black synthetic resin noseband that replaced traditional chrome bumpers at the front, matt black also being used for the rear bumper although this was a more conventional piece of painted steel. The cabin was completely new and featured an integrated dash and centre console that lent a very contemporary feel. It was more comfortable and refined than the Daytona and offered a good deal more luggage room. There were two tiny rear seats, although these were best folded down for additional storage space. Air conditioning was fitted as standard, as were cloth seat centres; a full Connolly leather interior being an optional extra.
This LHD example was manufactured in 1972 and is one of just 500 examples completed in total. Presented in Rosso with a Nero interior, the car was purchased by the current owner from DK Engineering in 1988 and then shipped to Hong Kong. Not long after this, the vehicle was comprehensively rebuilt using parts ordered directly from Maranello. The body was also stripped to bare metal and it was noted that the car was in fine working order following all the works. Subsequently, the car travelled to New Zealand and in November 2014 a full mechanical restoration was carried out by a leading specialist to compliment the already complete cosmetic work. All of the invoices are present, along with a photographic documentation of the restoration which details all of the works that were carried out. Following this, the car was shipped back to the UK and arrived in the early part of this year, still with the same owner. Presented in superb condition, both mechanically and cosmetically, the car is in our opinion in need of nothing following the recent restoration and is ready to be enjoyed immediately by its new owner. The car is UK registered and comes complete with books, a spare key and a most comprehensive history file. The car is available for viewing at our showroom based just outside of London.
