1970 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2

This is an exceptionally original, two-owner from new car that has been lovingly cared for by its current owners since 1973. Current mileage is 70,800 and all numbers match.

The car was purchased new from Griswold and Company in Berkeley, CA by a private party living in Alamo CA in 1970. The current owners purchased the car with about 8500 miles on it 3 years later from the original owner, who sold the car because his wife was uncomfortable driving it because of the stiff clutch. The current owners joined the San Francisco Bay Area Ferrari Club (FCA) and made 3-4 trips a year with that organization over the next 17 years. The highlight of the year being the track events at Laguna Seca and the Virginia City Hill Climb every fall. The car was garaged at their home in Danville, CA for those years.

It had a complete engine overhaul at 62,500 miles in 1989 by Bill Morton, Ferrari and Lamborghini Specialist, in Redwood City, CA. In 1991 they drove the car to Washington State, had it painted by Queen City Auto in Redmond, WA. It has always been garaged and well cared for.
New brake pads were installed very recently. It has its original Borrani wheels that came standard with the car, and is wonderfully original throughout.
 
This car has all its original tools, jack and manuals, including the parts book and leather pouch. It starts and runs very well and drives very nicely on the road. It has non-original headlamp covers currently installed, which can easily be removed. The drivers seat shows signs of wear, but otherwise the interior is in nicely aged condition.

The powerful 2+2 was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1967: the first Ferrari 2+2 with independent rear suspension. Koni's combined coil springs/ shock-absorbers ensured excellent road-holding, and comfort was guaranteed by the self-leveling system in the rear, pioneered jointly by Ferrari and Koni. As with the GTB4 and 330 GTC, transmission involved the 'torque tube' system. The chassis had the same wheel-base as the 330 GT 2+2, but the bodywork was totally new, and more like Superfast models than previous 2+2s.
