Thought I would post my GTC on the list. Although not the greatest picture here she is at home right after the engine rebuild. s/n 9593 lemans blu with nero interior. Cosmetically restored in 99 by earlier owner in Orlando, mechanically restored by me in 2009-2011.....still going.

It looks like you could eat off the engine. They are such elegant cars.

Steve- Those SOHC engines just look so nice when well finished. Beautiful job.

It dawns on me I have only owned DOHC Ferraris, and I note Boxer has not owned a SOHC either. I think I am missing something, for sure. Waited long enough until they are too expensive for me now.

That was done on an 84 Esprit. no comparison to what's inside this engine. Thanks for sharing Steve.

The GTS Rosso Corsa and tan , from Sport Auto. Looking for a manual 360 Modena.

I do hope to own a 275 GTS, 330 GTC, and a 365 GT 2+2 someday.

Thanks for the pictures and beautiful car you had.
Do you know what material the carpets where made originaly (wool or nylon) and if the botton was rubber o coco mat. The carpets from my car where taken out and sent to a cleaner shop, but before I could pick them up they went backrupcy and I lost them. Every place that I called to see if they can fabricate them, ask me for the old ones to use them as a pattern....

wow - that is awful, but unfortunately too common these days.

The carpet should be a low loop pile - mine were definitely not on a rubber back. But I'm not sure if it was "coco mat" or jute.

I think you will find it is wool.


Check with Reoriginals and see if Matt can help. You might also check with Tom Shaughnessy.

Thank you

Hi Dougal,
These are very useful and informative. Thank you!
I have the 215s on my 365 Gt 2+2.
A different query. What do you recommend for a 2600 Sprint? The have poor handling and need a good tyre to help compensate. I have a set of old Michellin Xs on mine and they need updating.
Best Regards
Phil

Hopefully someone can help me with an issue on a '66 330 gt. I am considering a purchase of this car and while test driving the car stalled out when I turned off the Aux fuel pump (after about 20 seconds). It fired right back up as soon as the aux pump kicked back in.
Is this normal? Must you run the Aux pump all the time or only when you start the car? I thought it was just to prime the carbs to start and then the fuel is mechanically or by vacuum drive to the carbs.
Please let me know what you guys think.
Thanks!
P.S. new to this and really love the vintage Ferrari's

It is possible someone replaced the two fuel pumps with one modern one and you turned off your only pump. Would have to ask the seller.

Terry, thank you for that info, I will check. I assume the car is designed with two pumps, one aux to start and one to sustain the fuel flow once the car is running?

I have never owned one of the SOHC cars, but that was my understanding. Turn on the electric fuel pump before start and wait for the bowls to fill and the ticking from the points set to stop, then start. The mechanical pump then took over. But those old points driven pumps are replaceable by modern pumps and there would be no need for the mechanical pump at that point.

Hi,

I recently purchased a 1969 365GT 2+2 in February and thought that I would post the information here. I don't have a lot of information about the car as there were no records with it unfortunately. It was owned by the same person in Missouri since 1988, and he purchased the car from California, but little else is known about the car.

Model: 365 GT 2+2
Year: 1968
Country: Italy
Steering: LHD
Chassis number: 11509
Color: Silver
Interior colour: Red

I am going through the car mechanically to make it road worthy. I looks like it had an engine/transmission rebuild at some point and runs very well. The electrical is a mess, the rear suspension is sagging and tires and shocks are gone. My plan is to get it in shape to drive to this year's concorso in Monterey, California.

If anyone has any information about this car's past I would really appreciate it.
