Delivered new in Paris on May 18th, 1968 by the importator Franco-Britannic, this Ferrari 365 GT 2 + 2 red Amaranto was acquired by Mr. Philippe Woog, amateur and collector of art, but also inventor of the electric toothbrush. At the reception of the car, he brought the car to the Chapron's workshop in Levallois to make improvements such as the beige leather front headrests, front and rear handles, adjustable rearview mirrors from the inside and a front protection bar. The GE 500 119 registered car was also equipped with a Blaupunkt car radio and an eight-track audio system for playing cassettes and tapes. Mr. Philippe Woog has thus preserved this 365 for nearly 50 years, in his property on the shores of Lake Geneva. He used it as a second car and regularly maintained it with specialists from Geneva. His health no longer allows him to drive the car, thus, his children have ensured the regular maintenance of 11317, always at the same addresses. Between 2011 and 2012, the rear shock absorbers, the spark plugs, the clutch and the stainless steel muffler were replaced, while the tightness of the mechanical assembly was reviewed at the same time as a current revision was carried out. The current owner of 11317 acquires the car in 2017, it showed then a little more than 67 000 kilometers and Mr. Woog described it: "we can appreciate that after nearly 50 years, the car and its cabin are kept as probably no other Ferrari dating from the year 1968". Subsequently, the car received an exceptionally good new paint and new Michelin XWX tires. After 3000 kilometers traveled last year, the Ferrari keeps all the arrangements made especially for its delivery. It still has its original interior offering a beautiful patina on its Connoly leather, only the carpets were replaced. The dashboard is in an excellent state of preservation, no chrome cladding is stung and the whole breathes the 1960s while being perfectly homogeneous. The bodywork offers a beautiful presentation, its paint Amaranto reference 310 is perfectly applied, without defect or orange peel. The five Borrani wheels were kept in their good original condition and do not denote the whole. The warranty statement, user manual, service manual and original advertising brochures remain and will be provided to the purchaser in the leather pocket, along with the jack and tool kit. A test drive allowed us to see the proper functioning of the mechanical assembly. The engine number 11317 takes turns without acceleration holes, the manual is nice to handle, the car rolls straight, without vibration and braking is the image of the rest. Nor did we notice any particular noise emanating from the chassis. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a Ferrari V12 from the 1960s that has never been fully restored, matching numbers & colors, having had only two owners in all its life, provided with its documents and accessories and what is more, in very good working condition!
