1970 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2

As the largest, most luxurious, and best-equipped Ferrari model to its introduction, the 365 GT 2+2 debuted at the 1967 Paris Salon as the successor to the 330 GT 2+2. Cloaked with sleek Pininfarina-designed coachwork, the new 365 GT 2+2 was also constructed and upholstered at Pininfarina in Turin, with installation of the mechanical components and final assembly performed by Ferrari in Modena. Riding upon a 2,650-millimeter wheelbase, the 365 GT 2+2 was the first Ferrari to be equipped with standard ZF power-assisted steering and power brakes. It was also the company’s first 2+2 model with self-leveling rear suspension – by Koni – maintaining constant ride height. Handling was excellent with fully independent suspension – another Ferrari 2+2 first. The 4.4-liter Tipo 245 V-12 engine featured a single overhead camshaft per cylinder bank with induction by triple dual-choke Weber carburetors. Ignition was a Marelli-Dinoplex system with twin coils and transistorized distributors. Rated 368 bhp (American SAE) and 320 bhp (DIN) at 6,600 rpm, the 365 GT 2+2 was an ideal GT with prodigious high-speed, long-distance performance including a 150-mph top end. That heady performance was matched by luxurious interior appointments including plush leather upholstery, richly veneered wooden trim, the last wood-rimmed steering wheel ever to grace a production Ferrari, and standard power window lifts. By the time production ended in 1971, Ferrari had built just 801 examples; while small in number, the 365 GT 2+2 was a great commercial success, accounting for about half of total Ferrari production during its brief three-year run. One of Ferrari's all-time best classic V-12 Grand Touring cars, the Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 enjoys growing appreciation among collectors and enthusiasts today. 

Bearing matching chassis and engine numbers – 13121 – this example from 1970 is elegantly finished in factory-specified Maroon over Tan leather and has covered just under 57,000 indicated miles at the time of writing. Featuring sleek covered headlamps, the Ferrari is equipped with air conditioning, a correct-appearing period radio, and rides on a set of iconic Borrani chrome wire wheels. According to known history, 13121 was shipped to the United States via famed Ferrari Importer Bill Harrah’s Modern Classic Motors distributorship and sold new in Newport Beach, California. During 1982, 13121 was refinished in its factory Maroon and the beautifully preserved Tan leather interior could possibly be original. More recently, the wooden interior trim was refinished in Los Angeles at Blackhorse Motor Sports and the Borrani wire wheels were beautifully refinished at Valley Wire Wheel Service. The carpets and floor mats were new prior to acquisition of the car by the current owner in 2018. In summary, this classic “Enzo Era” Grand Touring Ferrari is indeed a very fine and very well preserved example throughout.  

Exterior

The factory-correct and originally specified Maroon paint finish, professionally reapplied in 1982, remains in very good condition notwithstanding age. Some swirls and fine scratches are present, along with some cracking noted to the door jams, but these flaws do not greatly detract from the appearance of the vehicle. Perhaps they could be rectified by expert detailing. The chrome and brightwork is shiny and maintains a look consistent with fair weather and proper care, and the glass all appears in good condition, consistent with the rest of the vehicle. Borrani wire-spoke wheels were professionally restored, presumably under the prior owner, and period type Michelin radial tires are mounted for an authentic look. 

Interior

The Tan Connolly upholstery is well preserved and inviting, with few signs of wear present; the rear seat appears virtually unused. Door panels and the leather headliner remain in similarly fine condition. Black carpeting and floor mats are newer, having been fitted shortly prior to the current owner’s purchase of the vehicle. The wood grain dash and trim were professionally restored, again presumably under the prior owner’s tenure. The correct wood-rimmed steering wheel is very attractive, and the metal spokes appear to maintain their proper detailing. A correct 5-speed gearshift lever is housed within the well-appointed floor console and operates with Ferrari’s classic gated shift quadrant. Instruments and controls all appear correct and in good condition. Desirable passenger amenities include air condition and a period-appearing radio.   [SAC1] 

Engine and Drive Train

Ferrari’s famed Tipo 249 4.4-liter V-12 engine provides power, with triple twin-choke Weber carburetors and twin ignition distributors. Proper factory finishes, materials, components, labels, and fine details items are all present, as are the car’s data and firing-order tags. Both the engine and under hood area appear to benefit from attentive maintenance and proper care, essentially in correct factory condition. 

Trunk and Storage Compartment

The trunk compartment is consistent with the rest of the vehicle and appears in factory-correct form. Newer black carpets and panels are all present. Housed here are the factory books/manuals inside their correct Ferrari leather folio, and both the toolkit and roadside jack/wheel tools reside within their respective leather storage pouches. 

Documentation and Spares

Documents include the aforementioned books/manuals and an impressive document and history file, which includes some history and details of the cosmetic work discussed above.
