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 accommodation 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.

Originally finished in an Argento exterior over Beige Connolly leather, this Ferrari was delivered new in March 1969 to an official Ferrari dealer, Dino Ravasio & Sons. Later that year this 365 GT 2+2 was purchased by a resident of Verona by the name of Piccolotto. Eventually, the Ferrari left its home country and was imported to the United States. While the exact year of export is unknown, the car was sold by Auto Palace Sales of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on 20 April 1978 to Thomas Boniface of Poland, Ohio. A Georgia registration sticker issued in April of 1978 remains on the windshield, and in May of 1978 FAF Motors of Tucker, Georgia listed the car for sale through Ferrari Market Letter.

In mid-1978 FAF repainted the car to its current configuration of brown metallic. The car was purchased by Walter Medlin from FAF in April of 1979. The Ferrari has remained in storage since acquisition, and it exhibits damage received from the famous building collapse during Hurricane Charley in 2004. The car now offered from the Lost & Found Collection accompanied by an old title copy, 1979 lease agreement, and a report from marque historian Marcel Massini.

Today, this Ferrari stands as a prime candidate for a restoration and is sure to be a conversation piece for years to come—part of a well-known collection and a Hurricane Charley survivor, it is also a highly desirable grand tourer in its own right.
