We are pleased to offer 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4 s/n 14973, a platinum winning and extremely well documented USA model C/4. This 365 GTC/4 has had one very long–term, detail oriented owner for the last 22 years, from 1996 until today, and has been recently fully restored to its current platinum winning level. Most recently, between 2011 and 2012, the engine and all components were rebuilt at 63,684 miles by Eric Sanders of the Auto Gallery, then the authorized Ferrari dealer for north L.A. The invoices include $18,931.74; $8,902.39; $3,827.48; $877.00 and $9,685.58 for a total of $42,224.19. Today 365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 has only 67,308 total miles over its 46 years, so driven a mere 1,463 miles per year over its ownership, and only 3,624 miles since the engine rebuild. Just after the mechanical restoration, between 2012-14, 365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 was treated to a cosmetic restoration and was stripped to bare metal and repainted by Premier Motorsports while also being treated to an all-new black leather seats by Prestige Auto Upholstery, Van Nuys. A new-old-stock front windshield and stainless steel surrounding trim which had been purchased years earlier by the owner were also fitted for a total invoice of $36,072.48. All invoices on file, ask us for PDFs by e-mail.

365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 is offered with a full spare set of the correct Cromodora 7 1/2 x 15 wheels with near-new Pirelli P4000 215/70 ZR 15 tires for road use and is currently mounted on a set of gorgeous 7 1/2 x 15 Borrani wire wheels fitted with a full set of new and period-correct Michelin 215/70 VR 15 XWX tires. Equipped with both the European style three-ear knock-offs now in place plus the correct US model hexagon nut knock-offs and correct jack kit with the factory supplied knock-off wrench for the US model hexagon wheel nuts, all in their original jack bag, plus a non-factory socket and wrench to more-easily remove both sets of the wheel nuts. 365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 is also fitted with the period correct Becker Mexico cassette radio and has the correct and original leather owner’s carrying pouch, the owner’s manual and the parts book plus the correct “Briefcase” tool kit with both trays of tools in show quality condition. Also has the correct smog pump and drive which can be fitted for shows. Also supplied with a red Factory car cover in its red carrying bag and a battery tender. Complete with the Ferrari Club of America Argento (silver) trophy from Concorso Ferrari in Pasadena on 26 April, 2015 and the Ferrari Club of America Coppa di Platino trophy from April 2016.

365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 has been treated to both a mechanical and cosmetic restoration and is a wonderful driving 365 GTC/4. Thanks to the Factory power steering and front mounted gearbox, all controls are light to the touch and operate seamlessly. The syncros work smoothly, the clutch grips quickly and the car can be thrown into corners on Mulholland drive with ease and confidence. The 365 GTC/4 has long been known to have the best exhaust sound of any of the Enzo-era Ferraris and so has a wonderful exhaust shriek through the entire RPM range. The body is mirror straight and the paint is blemish and dent-free. The chrome and stainless trim, gaskets, window glass and lenses are all in excellent condition and the black rubber bumper is as-new. The car sits on beautiful, restored Borranis with new Michelin XWXs purchased in July of this year, so only three months ago. The interior has all new leather on both the front and rear seats and so the interior is as-new. The mouse–fur dash and console appear to be near new. The sill plates and door jams are clean and straight and red throw carpets nicely set off the black leather. 365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 is as spectacular underneath as it is on top with a new and correct ANSA exhaust system. The black on black color combination works well to show the C/4’s elegant lines.

Because of the fresh rebuild the engine bay is very clean and nicely detailed, with the 4.4 liter V-12 making excellent power and all the right sounds. The suspension is firm yet compliant, and the brakes stop the car effectively and evenly. All the switches and gauges are fully operational, including the Becker Mexico cassette radio. 365 GTC/4 s/n 14973 comes with all the goodies needed for a Platinum level win including the original leather pouch, owner’s manual and parts book. As a proven Platinum winner 365 GTC/4 is priced very right at $279,500 or best offer.
