Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1967, the 365 GT 2+2 was Ferrari’s largest and most luxurious model to date, carrying forward the growing demand for high-speed transport with accommodations for four passengers. Designed and constructed by Pininfarina, it features low-slung fastback styling that drew heavily from the 500 Superfast and 365 California. Furthermore, it was the first Ferrari grand tourer equipped with standard power steering, brakes, and windows, and a self-leveling independent rear suspension. The 4.4-liter V-12 engine was fitted with three Weber carburetors and factory-rated at 320 horsepower.

Such performance was combined with a luxurious interior to make a most impressive grand tourer. Plush leather, luxurious veneered trim panels, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, air conditioning, and a radio completed the interior appointments.

Marque historian Marcel Massini notes that chassis number 11885, offered here, is one of just 29 examples originally finished with distinctive Verde Bahram paint. The report additionally reveals the car was delivered to the official Ferrari Dealer M. Gastone Crepaldi Automobili S.a.s and sold new to a resident of Milan. As specified from the factory, the car featured a chromed front grille guard, instruments in kilometers, and Beige Scuro Connolly leather.

The Ferrari would remain in Italy for much of its life and in 2010, it was acquired by entrepreneur, restaurateur, and television personality Joseph Bastianich. While under his care, chassis number 11885 had the distinction of being featured on an episode of Top Gear Italia and was further presented as part of the “Driving with the Stars” exhibition at the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena and the “Driven by Enzo” exhibition at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello.

Still finished in eye-catching Verde Bahram paint, just as factory-delivered, this 365 GT 2+2 presents well as an inviting driver-quality classic. The exterior further features ANSA exhaust tips and alloy knock-off wheels wrapped in Pirelli P4000 tires.

With a rare color combination, gorgeous Pininfarina lines, and a powerful V-12 under the hood, chassis number 11885 offers a definitive Ferrari experience fully befitting Road & Track’s “Queen Mother of Ferraris” declaration from 1969.
