We are pleased to offer 1972 USA model 365 GTC/4 s/n 15197. This is the best running, best driving and best looking 365 GTC/4 we have had in many years. Finished in gorgeous new Rosso Corsa red over a mirror–straight body and fitted with a very nice black leather interior with black carpets. Has had only three well documented long–term owners from new, with the last owner for 27 years.

365 GTC/4 s/n 15197 has just been treated to an engine–out service with the valves set, cams degree’ed, and a new timing chain, new clutch assembly, new motor mounts and a new starter ring gear all fitted. The gearbox has new front and rear shaft seals. The carbs were rebuilt and tuned to perfection and the water pump was rebuilt. The distributors were overhauled and new plugs fitted. All main and secondary seals and gaskets were replaced while the A/C system, cooling system and heater system were rebuilt or serviced and most components replaced. A new brake master was fitted, the calipers were rebuilt and all brake soft lines are new. All shocks and the rear self–levelers were rebuilt and all new ball joints and rear suspension bushings were fitted. Correct USA muffler system. Four new Pirelli P 4000 tires were installed. The engine compartment and chassis were steam cleaned and the engine compartment was painted and detailed. Needless to say the engine, transmission and differential numbers are all correct for this chassis.

The new paint was color sanded and buffed to perfection on a mirror straight body. All wheel wells and under panels were texture coated while the engine compartment was painted. The cam covers and air cleaners were stripped and wrinkle finished. This freshly tuned 365 GTC/4 makes excellent power with no smoke and has excellent oil pressure. The rebuilt suspension is soft and compliant, and the rebuilt brakes stop the car effectively and evenly. Second gear synchro is good, both when warm and cold. This is a wonderfully driving car, and thanks to Factory power steering, all the controls are light to the touch and operate harmoniously. Perhaps no Ferrari of the era achieved such a pleasant balance between performance and luxury, combined with the wonderful Ferrari V–12 exhaust note, as did the 365 GTC/4. All invoices plus detailed photos of the paint work, the color sand and buff, the assembly work and the engine–out service are available on request.

365 GTC/4 s/n 15197 is the best running and best driving 365 GTC/4 we have had in many years and would require little to be ready for the show circuit. Comes with books and the “briefcase” tool set. Priced very right for a great running, great driving 365 GTC/4 and seriously for sale at $109,500 or best offer. We welcome a detailed pre–purchase inspection.
