This 1972 365GTC/4, S/N 15497 is one of only 4 Spider Conversions done by Claudio Zampoli, which are said to be the best of their kind. Only a handful of 365 GTC spider conversions exist and many feel it should have been a production model based on how attractive its lines are.
The 365 GTC is a rare model with approximately 500 being made. The 320hp 4.4L Colombo V12 engine shares its block with the Daytona however uses 6 twin choke 38 DCOE Weber carburetors, which allow for the dramatically sloping bonnet. This car was purchased twice by the previous wealthy American car collector. It was once a part of Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony’s collection. It’s finished in Black/Nero with a 5spd manual transmission.
After being acquired for a second time by the previous owner, this Ferrari 365 GTC was treated to a no expense spared restoration at Autosport designs at a cost of $161,595.56. Included in the restoration was a complete rebuild of the engine, new flawless black paint job and new interior and hood. The present owner purchased the car in February 2018 and shipped the car to the UK in March 2018. There were a few minor issues that needed to be rectified in order to obtain an MOT, for example a change to the colour to the rear lights. All lights are now LED’s and give more illumination with a lower current draw.
After paying all costs and duty the car was registered with an age related British number.
Since being registered in the UK, the car has been used on fine days and drives superbly with no apparent problems.
