Comments:

The 365 GTC/4 we have the pleasure to offer has been delivered new to

its first owner Seniore Bosca in Italy in 1971. In 1976 it changed hands the first

time when the Swiss citizen and well known Ferrari enthusiast Arnold Maier

purchased the car in Italy. Arnold Maier is one of the true Ferrari collectors in

Switzerland having still some of the nicest thouroughbreads built in Maranello in

his garage. After using it for a couple of years he sold it to his friend Peter

Heuberger who is as well known for his passion for Ferrari having had one of the

famous collections in Switzerland. He kept this car for nearly 15 years using it as

his family car. Last time it changed hands was in Switzerland in 1997. The first

time we had the pleasure to buy it was in 2005. A short time later the C4 found

a new home in the Netherlands from where it was sold to England where it had

been registered for a couple of years.


The last English gentleman spent quite a fortune into the mechanics to rebuilt

everything which needed to be done to use it frequently. The work has been

accomplished mostly by the well known Ferrari workshop of Terry Hoyle TDH

Classics Ltd in Essex/England. In this time the engine has been inspected and

dyno tested with a result of 300 bhp at 6000 rpm. The engine has been checked

as well with a leak down test showing full compression on each cylinder. We are

pleased to present all the service records and restoration bills to the next owner.

While the C4 has been in England the last owner asked Ferrari for a

"Certificazione di autenticita" which has been supplied in September 2009

confirming the numbers and the outside color Blu Caracalla 52141 Italver and

as well the interior color as Pelle Beige VM 3104 which the car still has today.


After having bought this 365 GTC/4 which has been delivered in its special

custom order paint Blu Caracalla with a contrasting beige interior we decided

to take it apart  to go through the whole bodywork being needed after

nearly 40 years. Having spent some time in the bodyshop it went straight to our

paint shop to receive its wonderful Blu Caracalla paint. Needless to say that we

tried to do our best willing to have a perfect paint with gaps minimum as good

as the C4's came out of the factory. After having received its new paint Blu

Caracalla the surface has been grinded and polished to match a very high level

and quality of paint work. This work finished in November 2011.


After having done the work on the car we have to tell that this European

delivered C4 is in absolutely precise condition throughout. The paint job has

been carried out perfectly, the interior is in wonderful preserved condition, the

engine compartment has been detailed and it looks nearly like new, the engine

runs perfectly with lots of torque, the mechanical condition is as fine as it should

be. This C4 took lots of advantage of the latest work having been performed.

And last but not least we have to say that this very special color Blu Caracalla

with its contrasting full leather interior give the C4 a touch of elegance which we

really like.


Might be one of the nicest Ferrari 365 GTC/4 in the market.
