This breaking news for Mint readers – a new exclusive offering from one of Auto Turismo Sports clients. Today’s exclusive is a rare 1969 Ferrari 365GTC. The first GTC, the 330GTC, was powered by a Colombo designed V12 producing 300 horsepower, and was first introduced in ’66 and continued in production until ’68. Only 600 were built during that production run and the finest examples of that car have touched the million dollar mark recently. In late 1968, the original GTC’s engine displacement was enlarged to 4,390 cc, and the 365 GTC was born. Combining the luxurious quality and good looks of its predecessor with improved acceleration. Only 168 examples were produced between late 1968 and 1970, making it one of the rarest production Ferraris of the period. The 365 GTC is considered by many aficionados to be the finest all-around road-going Ferrari produced prior to the mid-1990s. Phil Hill called it “the best road-going Ferrari ever”.
Chassis number 12127 is a 10-year old cosmetic restoration by Kent Bain, well-respected in the Ferrari world. It has held up well and mechanically maintained by ATS expert technicians.
