Ferrari 365 GTC/4 - An Under Appreciated Classic

by Mike - 

The Ferrari 365 GTC/4 is a 2+2 that was produced in 1971 and 1972 based on the 365GTB/4 Daytona.  The V12 engine produces 340 bhp and it uses an engine-mounted transmission instead of the transaxle in the Daytona. Styling is by Pininfarina.

There were a total of 500 made and even though it is close in design and performance to the Daytona they have not been as loved as the Daytona, so their values are much lower.

Good examples can be bought in the low $100,000 range, about one third the price of an equivalent Daytona coupe.

This 1972 model was at the Marin Sonoma Concours d'Elegance on May 15, 2011.
