Documented Early History by Ferrari Historian Marcel Massini
Originally Delivered in Blue Ribot over Beige Leather
One of Only 809 Examples Produced from 1967-1970
Considered One of the Most Comfortable Driving Model of the 1960's Era V12 Ferraris
Delivered New to Chinetti Motors and Displayed at the 1969 Chicago Auto Show
The 365 GT 2+2 was built for the sporting enthusiast with additional comfort, giving the quintessential 1960s vintage Ferrari experience with the last of the curvaceous Pininfarina-bodied grand tourers, powered by the final iteration of the Colombo V-12 two-cam engine. The inclusion of additional convenience and luxury features further enhanced the car's drivability, while the familiar front-mounted 4.4 liter V12 and striking Pininfarina styling ensured that the car retained all of the traditional positive Ferrari traits. Often called the "baby Superfast" it has a timeless style and uncompromising performance, so common among the greatest Ferrari's classics Grand Touring cars.
12223 was completed in February 1969 (Assembly Sequence #891) and delivered new to Chinetti Motors for display at the 1969 Chicago Motor Show in stunning Blu Ribot (dark blue) paint 2.443.631 over Beige leather VM 3218, in U.S. Specification, optioned with Power Windows, Power Steering & Air Conditioning. It subsequently passed through the hands of a few loving U.S. caretakers, (as documented by Mr. Peter Perry a steward of the Queen Mother from 1998-2004) taking up residence in the Pacific Northwest from the late-1980's until 2015. The current recorded mileage of 55,430 tracks consistently and is believed to be accurate and original. Its current paint scheme was applied in the 1990's and exhibits flaws and wear in areas, while the tan leather upholstery and black carpeting was freshened around 1980 and remains very presentable.
Chassis 12223 was a running and driving car about two years ago but a compression test was done which showed compression of 175psi on 9 cylinders and 45psi on the other 3 cylinders. The piston rings need to be replaced. Mostly due to a long period of storage the Ferrari is in need of a major tune up and top end rebuild at a minimum to reach its full and celebrated performance potential that these Queen Mothers famous for. We also feel the car would benefit greatly if taken back to its original factory color of Blue Ribot. Ferrari's 365 GT 2+2 is a gentleman's sports car with the pedigree to match.
This 365 has matching body panels stamped #891 also the original Blue Ribot paint is found in several areas.
This example has a great history attached to it. It is attractively priced and with room to do the needed work, this rare 365 GT presents a great opportunity. We encourage and welcome questions, inspections and inquiries.
