Ferrari’s 365 GT 2+2 made its debut at the 1967 Paris Motor Show. It was Ferrari’s largest and most luxurious model when released, designed to meet the growing demand for lavish, high-speed grand touring coupés. Notably, it was the first Ferrari grand tourer supplied with power-assisted brakes and steering, with electric windows as standard.

The 365 GT 2+2 was powered by a 4.4-litre V-12 engine, breathing through three Weber carburettors and factory-rated at 320 horsepower. Such performance was complemented by luxury appointments including air conditioning, leather upholstery, radio, veneer trim panels, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. Ferrari delivered 801 examples between 1967 and 1971, making the 365 GT 2+2 one of the most popular models in the 365 range.

This 365 GT 2+2 left the factory finished in Grigio Argento over a Beige “VM 3309” leather interior and was delivered new to France in June 1968. It is believed to have been previously owned by André Haller, a restaurateur from Strasbourg who tragically died in an accident at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1976, behind the wheel of a Datsun 260Z. In 1985, the Ferrari entered the possession of the Strasbourg-based car collector, Marcel Petitjean, who acquired it from a property developer, and it would stay in his ownership for 36 years. As part of Mr Petitjean’s collection, the Ferrari was kept on static display for many years, so will need a full recommissioning before returning to road use. The car features a reupholstered interior finished in Rosso leather, while it retains the factory-correct shade of paintwork.

The Ferrari is offered for sale with a build sheet from the Maranello factory that confirms this 365 GT 2+2 is equipped with its matching-numbers chassis and engine. For those looking for a tempting restoration project, this Prancing Horse has all the attributes of a car that could soon be brought back to its best and enjoyed out on the open road.
