'69 365 California Conversion

Just thought you all might want to see something different.
#12959 was a 365 GT 2+2 but was converted about 10 years ago.

A handsome car and it is a better rag top then hardtop.
Looks like a decent conversion and certainly the first I have seen.

Whoever it belongs to is clearly an eclectic.

Several years ago, I remember seeing a similar car for sale in one of the dealers in Florida. Proabably, the same car ? w/ smiles Jimmy

Not a fan of conversions, but the lines are decent...

I have seen a couple of 365 GT conversions. This one looks well executed.

365 California Conversion

jimmy,
you are correct, the car was for sale in Pompano Beach FL in 2008 and before, I believe. I purchased it post RM Auction in Fort Lauderdale in Feb. 2009. Pretty good condition; this is definitely the way to own an Enzo era V12 convertible for a lot less than $400k!

Well, ...I can see there that the owner looks very happy ! Thanx for posting the pics, Stuart, and a hearty congrats too. I can see from that pic that you are happy with this car.

Back then, I remember I was interested in the ad. Must be wonderful to have that open air and take in that great sound. Not sure where you reside (doesn't look like Florida there), but wherever you may be, must be great to ride in that.

I am sure we would enjoy seeing more pics and hear your comments and impressions. Thanx again. w/ smiles Jimmy

Welcome to FL, nice looking car. I would recommend returning the Ferrari script on the rocker covers back to black, as it was originally. And I'm not a fan of the Weber intake modification.

But as many have said, it seems a well-executed conversion. And you're right about the pricing of Enzo-era convertible V12's.

No, sorry Stuart, I do not. These s/ns were gleaned from general 365GT2+2-spotting during the ten years that I owned one.
