1969 Ferrari 365 GTC Chassis 12487 will be offered at Auctions America’s Santa Monica Collector Car Auction on Saturday, June 25, 2016. The car is driven by its original drivetrain with the engine and gearbox being rebuilt in 2015 by Ferrari of Beverly Hills. The car has been properly sorted for road use, touring or concours exhibition with Rex Nguyen Restorations executing the corrections.
The Nero interior features surface-dyed leather and is fresh with gray Italian wool carpet and reported as period correct. Additional preparation included the exhaust system, new Michelin XWX tires, upgraded Borrani wire wheels, new period-correct hood pad, reconditioned hood vents, polishing/plating to trim and hardware, period-correct Carello headlights, brake booster and master cylinder rebuild and exterior color correction through the sand, buff, polish, seal and wax method.
Generously equipped, the 365 GTC has factory air conditioning, Becker Europa AM/FM radio, power windows, gauges in metric units and power four-wheel disc brakes.
The Ferrari is accompanied by a set of manuals in leather folder, toolkit in leather roll, as well as the jack in its roll – receipts of work performed are also included. The current owner has invested nearly $95,000 in the car’s long term future with this well-executed servicing and conditioning. The car is properly prepared for the Ferrari certification process.
The 365 GTC is regarded as one of the best all-around Ferraris ever built, as it offers high performance, great comfort, and superb handling, making it one of the most sophisticated and elegant cars in a long line of Maranello GTs. This beautiful example sums that up quite nicely. The car is estimated to bring $800,000 – $950,000.
