Description

The 365 GTC replaced the 330 GTC at the end of 1968. Visually, it was almost identical to its predecessor, with the exception of the absence of exhaust outlets on the front of the wings, replaced by a Trapezoid black shutter panel placed near each corner of the hood.

The only other external difference was the small badge "330" affixed to the trunk of the 330 GTC, badge that did not have the 365 GTC, under that of Ferrari. Inside, two small modifications were made to the dashboard and center console, the most obvious being the two circular and directional vents of the demisting system in the center of the upper dashboard. Like the 330 GTC models, the bodies were built in the Turin workshops of Pininfarina, and then delivered completely cut to Ferrari for the installation of the mechanical components.
The bodies were mounted on a tubular steel frame with a wheelbase of 2400 mm bearing the reference 592C. In addition, all the vehicles were numbered according to the sequence of odd numbers of the roadways. Its layout was almost identical to the models it replaced, because the only mechanical modification was the size of the engine. The standard rims adopted the standard ten-hole design, as in the previous model. In the same way, Borrani spoke rims were available as an option.

The 365 GTC inherited the same engine as the 330 GTC, in a larger version, which had the same characteristics as the engine of the 365 GT 2 + 2 already in production at the announcement of the 365 GTC. It was a V12 with a single overhead camshaft bearing 245 / C, 4,390cc displacement and a bore / stroke ratio of 81mm x 71mm . Developing 320 hp, it was equipped with a row of three Weber 40 DFI / 5 or 40 DFI / 7 dual body carburettors and a rear-mounted two-coil distributor.
The 365 GTC and its sister, the 365 GTS, were the last two models announced with a single overhead camshaft engine, as production of the 365 GT 2 + 2 was completed after that of 365 GTC, it had started before the latter. The 365 GTC was equipped with the same 5-speed gearbox and the same independent rear suspension as the 330 GTC. In addition, like all Ferrari models since the early sixties, it was equipped with four disc brakes and a handbrake directly connected to the rear wheels.

The 365 GTC was produced for a very short time in 1969, mainly because of the emission legislation in place in the United States and other countries of the world, and the tariff implications of bringing vehicles up to standard. produced in a relatively small number of copies. A total of 168 units were produced for both right- and left-hand drive with chassis numbers between 11589 and 12785.

The Ferrari 365 GTC that we present is a very rare model of 1969, with 150 copies manufactured. Delivered in its original Azzuro Hyperion color, it has Ferrari Certification after an update in 2018 at the Maranello factory.
With only 3 owners and a low mileage, a known history, and a perfect follow-up by a Ferrari dealership in Switzerland, it is an exceptional model.
