Coachwork by Pininfarina
The 365 GT 2+2 offered unprecedented standard features for a Ferrari road car, including power steering, air-conditioning, four-wheel independent suspension, and a proprietary self-leveling rear suspension developed with KONI. It is now prized for its impressive engineering lineage and its luxurious yet sporting characteristics.
Chassis 12751 is believed to have had only three owners from new and showed only 74,440 miles at the time of cataloguing, believed by the consignor to be original to the car. With single ownership for the last 32 years, the Ferrari has undergone major services of its mechanical systems, all documented in the car’s extensive history file. Both engine and transmission were comprehensively rebuilt 174 by marque expert Allen Bishop of Galloway Enterprises in Pacific Palisades, California, and 12751’s innovative suspension was overhauled by specialist FJB Ltd. of Peoria, Arizona. Working from information supplied by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, the car was given a bare-metal repaint in its handsome original factory color of Blu Tourbillon, and the interior was refinished in Blu leather. Service receipts and previous registrations accompany the car along with a complement of accessories.
Featured in the book Forty Years of Ferrari V-12 Engines by Welko E. Gasich, this well-sorted and highly documented Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is a fine example of the legendary automaker’s four-seat grand touring car.
