The Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is no small car as was the intention. The Ferrari 365 2+2 was made to travel through Europe at speed. In those days you could get away with speeding through Europe with the speeding camera still to be invented and the police in cars that could only dream of keeping up with a Ferrari. Those were different times. Still, the Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is quite as able to perform as did in the late ’60s.
The Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 was the first real sales success for Ferrari. Between 1967 and 1971 they sold an impressive 800 vehicles. Because of its clever design, it remains a very capable car. The engine delivers 320 PS and can still leave many modern cars in its trail.
This “Verde Medio” example was first registered in the States in 1969. Since then she has only clocked up 37,500 miles and remains in original condition. The fine bodywork exhibits good and correctly aligned panelwork. The Verde Medio paintwork suits the car down to a tee, accentuating those gorgeous Pininfarina sculpted lines. The paintwork and brightwork are all original and is well cared for condition. The car stands proudly on Borrani rims with correctly sized tyres.
The interior trim consists of lovely blue carpets and “Tan” leather. The leather has developed a lovely patina over the years and is in good shape. The Veglia instruments look great and are all in excellent working order. Taking your place behind the wheel you immediately notice how orderly older cars appear, making the cabin space seem larger than it actually is. Although a 2+2 on paper, it offers seating for four adults.
The absolute centrepiece of course has to be the 4.4 litre Colombo V12 engine. This car has retained its original engine and therefore this 1969 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is a matching numbers example. The V12 develops 320 PS attached to a 5-speed manual gearbox. With the increase of the revs, you get to hear exactly what you would expect: that fantastic engine sound! The 365 GT 2+2’s road handling is many times better than its predecessor, the Ferrari 330. The independent rear suspension having a large part to play in this.
The factory-fitted air-conditioning makes long-distance driving a lot more comfortable. Mechanically the car is in very good shape and extremely well maintained by its previous holder. The car drives fantastically well and looks great. In short, this is a wonderfully original and especially elegantly finished Ferrari 365 GT 2+2.
