The formula for a great grand tourer is a combination of long-legged power, comfort, and an engine in the front with power to the rear wheels. Providing for a sense of confidence in a never-ending journey to destinations beyond the horizon. Doing all of this in style, with flare, and a visceral additive to call the journey perfect is where Ferrari has completed their finest work over the years. Hailed as the luxury variant of the Daytona by many, the 365 GTC/4 provides sensible and purposeful changes over the Daytona such as power steering, electric windows, AC, +2 seating in the back and updated rear suspension to name a few.
The example on offer, Chassis # 15641 is a US-Production example sold new by famed Ferrari concessioner Chinetti-Garthwaite Imports, Inc. Algar Enterprises delivered 15641, as recorded on the original warranty paperwork and MSO, first to Autohaus, Inc of MA who delivered it to it’s first owner, Branded Liquors of Westwood MA on October 3rd 1973. The original color was Silver, and the selling price was $27,250. While exact early history remains unknown, service records from SF Restoration of CT pickup in 1994 during ownership of a Mr. Sherban, also of CT. The mileage at this time was just over 49,000 and it appears that the car was serviced with SF Restoration through 1997/1998. During which time a wide variety of items were tended to. Including a transmission rebuild, cooling system and suspension rebuilds as well as the brakes, all detailed in copies of the invoices.
Shortly after the car made it’s way to CA where it was under the care of known Ferrari enthusiast Bryant Kreaden before passing to Heritage Classics in West Hollywood whereby in late 2004 the car was acquired by its current collector owner. The mileage at this time was recorded as 51,411. Upon receiving the car in NJ the owner had some minor service items tended to including some work on the fuel system, 2 new tires etc… Over the years it was seldom used with a mere 939 miles added to the odometer since 2004. From 2004 to current it was however run regularly and driven sparingly for the purposes of keeping it as a running driving example.
While the car may have needs mechanically to bring it back to a reliable grand tourer in “turn-key” status, it does show strong fundamentals of a good example. Having never been hit or rusty to our knowledge, retaining a highly original preserved interior and in running driving condition without major faults. 365 GTC/4’s come in many different conditions from project to restored. This is a car that provides a strong basis to be driven and enjoyed with servicing, or (against our opinion) the basis for a straight-forward restoration. A genuine old Ferrari with loads of desirable patina and a bright future for enjoyment and investment. Included in the sale are a jack bag with accessories, spare, a manual and copies of original documents and service records.
