Features

1972 USA model 365 GTC/4 s/n 15665. Finished in Rosso Chiaro red over a very straight body and fitted with an all–new tan leather interior with black carpets. Has all–new mouse–fur on the dash and console, and the steering wheel has been expertly re–covered for a total cost of $12,000. Has a well–documented ownership history back to the early 1970s. Makes excellent power. No smoke. Excellent oil pressure. The suspension is soft and compliant, great brakes. Second gear synchro is good. Thanks to Factory power steering, all the controls are light to the touch. A pleasant balance between performance and luxury, with the wonderful 365 GTC/4 Ferrari V–12 exhaust note. Has beautiful Borrani wires with “near–new” Michelin XWX tires. Has the full set of books, the jack and jack bag and more valuable earlier model tool roll and tool set. Also has an original “period correct” Becker Mexico radio.
