365 gt 2+2

What would the current value be of a good "driver" 365 GT 2+2?

Boxer, I'd say around $100-120K here in the US. Sheehan has one listed for $150K at the moment, but I think that's on the high side. FML puts them at $99K in this months newsletter.

I sold my 95-point car in October '09 for 124k. I also drove it, so it had an aftermarket fan and a single-wire AC Delco alternator, so my chances of being stranded on the side of the road were greatly diminished. The inhterior was new as of 2005. I just don't see the Sheehan car moving for 150. Portions of the interior have clearly seen better days, and since it is an american-spec car, is has the curse of the smog equipment.

One of my favorite cars was the 500 Superfast and to me, the 365 GT 2+2 looks a lot like the Superfast. One of the reasons I voted for it as my favorite 2+2, although the 330 America is a close second.

Photos of a Series I 500 Superfast with four speed plus overdrive and a Series II with five speed. The Bugatti Royale of the Ferrari line in the 60s. 25 Series I built and 12 Series II.

I too voted for the 365 Queen. I drove a US marone/tan for a spell. The type 245 engine seemed so much more free spinning than the 209 in my GTC. It had an [almost] decent back seat with nice headroom. Good for kids or adults for a short stint. Can't say the same about my C/4 that came later where the back seat was only a concept not a reality. I really don't even think of it as a 2+2. In the C/4 I kept the seat backs down for storage space.

There is a distinct resemblance to the nose of the SuperAmerica. I actually prefer the design of the 365. Just the right amount of curves and well styled for such a long car. The tail end is nicely balanced with the front of the car. And the 3/4 view of a Queen Mother in motion is a thing of beauty.

Of course it had it's weaknesses as many of this era Ferraris did. Alternators, cooling and fans, and electrics in general were less than stellar. BryanAp did the upgrades to fix these issues. That is the way to go if you want to drive these cars extensively.

I would highly recommend the 365 GT to someone that wants to go down the vintage path. It's a lot of bang for the buck in terms of how it performs on the road and presents its class in the porte cochere of the Ritz. Stylish, roomy, comfortable and a true grand touring machine.

Vitalone learned to drive in one of these. He's a lucky man!

I like them a lot. But boy are they big!

Steve- If you are comparing a 365 GT 2+2 to a 400 Super America, i agree wholeheartedy. I love the Superfast design, but was never enamored of the 400. Trying too hard.

A vintage model Boxer? I thought you said you didn't have the time for one. Glad you've adjusted your schedule, looking foward to seeing the addition!

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

It will be a modern model. Sadly the time issues have not gone away (gotten worse actually).

Ahem. I sold it. And I might ad that it's the only Ferrari I've ever sold, because I was comfortable with the car and knew it and the owner and felt at ease that I wasn't misrepresenting it any way. If I thought it would be that honest with every transaction, I'd easily get into Ferrari sales. But there's too much pressure, too much eagerness to misrepresent and hide important details that it's too scummy - even for me.

I remember the buyer, a Northern California man who just took delivery of an HGTE, came back to our listing with a low-ball offer. I mentioned it to Bryan, but replied to the prospective buyer that the lowest we'd go was $124 - and I rattled off a shitload of details why the car was well worth the asking price. By sun up the next morning, he was in agreement, and eventually took delivery of as an-represented car. He was very happy.


I worked at another dealer, many years ago, and one day I was bored and started playing with a paint meter. One of the most "pristine" cars we had on the floor was completely repainted: every panel was10s - in some cases 20 millimeters thicker than other Ferraris of that era. I mentioned something to the floor manager and he basically shrugged it off since he knew. He figured since the whole thing had been repainted, there was no need to mention anything like a "bumper" or "front end" respray.

I need an Aventador!

Another Koenigsegg?!? Possibly a left-hand drive example to kept in Southern California (namely Northridge) where you'll entrust it in my care?!? That would certainly make medical marijuana home delivery a bit more interesting.

Believe it or not, highly unlikely.
