With superb looks and a striking resemblance to its predecessor the fabulous Daytona, the 365 GTC/4 offers both exceptional comfort and stunning performance. With more cabin space due to its elongated chassis, the GTC/4 can accommodate four passengers, their luggage, and whisk them away in quintessential Italian style. Impressively outfitted with ZF power steering, power brakes, radio, and sumptuous Italian leather, the 365 GTC/4 was purpose-built to carry its passengers across the continent at speed and in complete comfort. One of only 505 examples produced from 1971–1972, this Ferrari is much rarer than both its predecessors.
According to marque historian Marcel Massini, this 365 GTC/4, chassis no. 14969, was the 130th example built. It was delivered new to Bill Harrah’s Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada, in U.S. specification and fitted with power windows, air conditioning, and instrumentation in miles. Though originally delivered in the eye-catching Verde Medio Niyinsky, it has been repainted in its current shade of Nero. The paint remains in very good condition overall, while the interior appears to be largely original and shows a beautiful, inviting patina throughout. It wears highly attractive Cromodora wheels shod with Michelin tires and has been fitted with an aftermarket Blaupunkt stereo system. Included in the sale is its Ferrari tool kit, jack, and owner’s manual.
Considered by many to be the more practical iteration of the famed Ferrari Daytona, the 365 GTC/4 combines the same aggressive Ferrari styling and the iconic Colombo V-12, but with exceptional practicality. Easily capable of taking to the open road for long-distance tours at speed, this 365 GTC/4 is a wonderful and highly usable example.
