The graceful Pininfarina-designed 365 GTC/4, unveiled in 1971, offered rearpassenger capacity while concealing a highly capable V-12 under a low-profile hood. The remarkable US-delivery example offered here was completed in January 1972 in Rosso Cherry with a Black leather interior. In the summer of 1972, Jose Luis DePedroso of Haverford, Pennsylvania, purchased the GTC/4 via Chinetti-Garthwaite Imports, and initially took delivery in Modena.

Mr. DePedroso enjoyed the car for 26 years, selling it in the late 1990s with 20,807 miles displayed. Brothers David and Richard Romer of California acquired the GTC/4 and commissioned marque expert Mike Regalia to perform an extensive sympathetic refurbishment, with proper engine finishing, mechanical freshening, and interior restoration, retaining original materials where possible. Within the brothers’ assembled documentation of the car, they state that it was a highly intact and correct example. After the GTC/4’s restoration, the Romers showed it over 14 years, winning numerous Gold and Platinum awards.

Today, this GTC/4 presents well, showing just over 50,000 miles. A set of Borrani wire wheels came new with the car in addition to the standard Cromodora alloys, and both sets accompany the sale, along with books, tools, and an impressive file of records going back to new. Benefiting from the thoughtful care and appreciation afforded by decades of passionate stewards and owners, it stands ready to thrill its next caretaker.
