Features

1972 USA model 365 GTC/4 s/n 14983. This two-owner well-maintained Ferrari was with its first owner from new in 1972 until 2009, so thirty seven years of consecutive ownership. 14983 was bought new in, and has never left, Canada. This 365 GTC/4 has 74,000 miles and is a wonderfully driving car with a detailed restoration done for the original owner by the authorized Ferrari dealer and completed in 1991-1992. The car sits on beautiful Alloy Mag wheels with “near-new” three year old Michelin XWX tires, and comes with a complete spare set of brand new Borranis, purchased three years ago, and fitted with Michelin XWX tires. 365 GTC/4 s/n 14983 also come with a new ignition harness from Italy, two new distributor caps and the original jack kit with jack bag. The body work is excellent; no sign of any repairs or dents. Good consistent shut lines on the doors, no ripples or unevenness anywhere on the body. All chrome and glass unmarked, as new condition, except perhaps the taillight surround, one or two of which are lightly pitted from exhaust stain. The interior is in good condition and the dash has been covered in leather versus the normal “mouse-fur.” The pop-up headlights work reliably as does the A/C. The only thing that doesn’t work is the Veglia clock. The syncros work smoothly, the clutch grips quickly and the car can be thrown into corners with total ease and confidence. Needless to say, this car has a wonderful exhaust shriek through the RPM range.

1972, sold new to Andy Ucci, a Toronto construction company owner. In 1972 Andy walked in to Yonge Steeles Motors to look at the Ferraris.

After 15 minutes he went into the back shop and got talking to a mechanic working on another car. The mechanic was Remo Ferri. Ucci asked Remo to take him to the owner upstairs. There he said “I came here to buy a Ferrari today, but your salesman ignored me. Sooo.. I’m not going to buy a Ferrari. I want two Ferraris, one for myself and one for a friend, on one condition – the salesman’s commission goes to the mechanic, not to the salesman.”
