Concurrent with production of the 275GT-series and replacing the 330GT MKII and 500 Superfast, Ferrari S.p.A. launched the 4.4 litre V12, “365” at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show; headlining their stand, with the luxurious, and very limited production, “California” variant.

The following year; Ferrari’s first model with all independent rear suspension, the 365GT2+2, was unveiled at the annual Paris Salon – a result of the strategic partnership between themselves and Koni, it combined coil springs/shock-absorbers to ensure excellent road-holding, thanks to the self-levelling system at the rear. The chassis had the same wheel-base as the 330 GT 2+2, but the bodywork was totally new, and more like the Superfast model, than previous 2+2s. It was the largest and most luxurious Ferrari ever made at that point…no surprise it attracted much attention and a full order book.

The car’s styling is most similar to that of the 365 GTC/GTS, slightly elongated to accommodate the rear seating, and as with the GTB/4 and 330 GTC, the transmission involved the ‘torque tube’ system. Presented with electric windows and an integral stereo, it was the first production Ferrari, to have standard air conditioning for the North American market.

In production from 1968 until 1971 (by which time, it was also joined by the 206 Dino and 365 Daytona); the 365GT is from a decade of prolific growth for Ferrari and is a highly collectible, very versatile Grand Tourer, in the finest tradition.

The chassis we are very pleased to offer is from the first year of model production; completed in Maranello on 28/5/68 and delivered via Turin-based, main-dealer Italcar S.p.A, to Signor Blangino of the same city, on 14/6/68 (photocopy of build-sheet from Ferrari S.p.A on file)

“This is easily one of the “best original patina” Queen Mothers in the US. It has an extremely strong engine and pulls like a freight train with excellent brakes and clutch. It’s a Euro-spec car, built in 1968, so no emissions equipment and it’s smog exempt almost everywhere. Even the power vent windows work and the A/C blows cold.”
