Making its debut at the 1967 Paris Motor Show, the all-new 365 GT 2+2 was Ferrari’s largest and most luxurious model to date, building on the growing market demand for a grandiose high-speed coupé in the “2+2” format, which incorporated a small rear seat for occasional use. Its Pininfarina body features a low-slung fastback design and was the first Ferrari grand tourer to boast electric windows, power brakes, and power steering.

In February 1969, this 365 GT 2+2 rolled off the production line finished in Argento Metallizzato, with the interior upholstered in Nero Connolly leather. A month later, chassis number 12349 arrived at the U.S. importer Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada. Records from the Ferrari Market Letter show that in 1974, this 365 GT 2+2 was owned by John S. Reinhold of Redondo Beach, California. Reinhold offered this Ferrari for sale in 1981 and it is believed the car was acquired by a buyer in Pampa, Texas. It was advertised for sale again in 1988, stating the odometer read 69,300 miles. This Ferrari then resurfaced in 1993, offered for sale by Grand Prix Classic of La Jolla, California. In November of that year, the car was acquired by its next owner in Marietta, Georgia, and would change hands again in the mid-2000s. On 17 July 2008, the noted car collector David E. Walters registered chassis number 12349 in Hawaii, having acquired it from Family Collectibles Inc. of San Juan Capistrano, California.

The consigning owner acquired this Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 in 2009 and today it retains its factory-correct colour scheme of Argento Metallizzato over a Nero Connolly leather interior. This car is presented with the advertisement from March 2009, a copy of a former U.S. title, a history report by Marcel Massini, and a spare wheel.
