Comments:


This 365 GTC/4 has been originally delivered in the colour combination of

Marrone Colorado with a contrasting beige full leather interior. It found its first

home in France having been delivered in January 1973 by the French market

importer Charles Pozzi/Paris.


It changed hands in France a couple of times and ended up in the Netherlands

where its has been restored nicely. It still has its original dashboard in very nice

condition but received a complete wonderful new leather interior. It benfitted as

well from a major rebuilt of the technique which is documented by an

extraordinary file of bills and service records out of the last ten years. The

engine compartment looks like a brand new car professionally detailed by a very

known Ferrari specialist. We inspected the matching number engine and

found only the best possible results at an engine leak down test having a full

compression on each cylinder.


We have test driven this 365 GTC/4 intensively and we can say that it drives

flawlessly, the engine produces lots of torque, the gears are shifting faultlessly,

there is no vibration from the drivetrain and the brakes are perfect as well. Our

last test drive has shown how much developed these cars have already been in

the early seventies. The C4 is a wonderful cruiser with a very nice relaxing

driving position, a real fun to drive it.


Knowing that the C4's are technically very close to the nearly triple expensive

Daytonas this car seems to us a very nice and reasonable entry into the Ferrari

world. The 365 GTC/4 is the last forgotten Ferrari classic having a tremendous

12 cylinder 4 cam engine, 5 speed gearbox, disc brakes and independent

front and rear suspension plus the power steering which made it more expensive

than a Daytona in its early days.


Ferrari produced 1284 Daytona but only 500 C4 left the factory from which

31 have been sold as rhd cars and nearly 300 of them have been manufactured

in the US version for the American market. I can only recommend to everybody

to see the real value of these wonderful and rare early Ferrari thoroughbreds.


They are still completely underestimated especially compared to their lovely

design and their way they drive.
