Car Tales: The Unreplaceable Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2

‘Ferrari announced the 365 GT4 2+2 model at the 1972 Paris Salon, just a year after the launch of the GTC/4. The car’s name refers to the single cylinder displacement (365 cc), four overhead camshafts (GT4) and seat configuration (2+2). Most of the mechanicals, including the 4,390 cc (268 cu in) engine, were carried over from its predecessor.

‘The 365 GT4 2+2 had a brand new design from favored coachbuilders Pininfarina, which faced the task of developing a fast, svelte and elegant 2+2 powered by the classic VI2 engine that would break with the more classical lines of the 1967 GT 2+2 with more rear seat space versus the 1970 GTC4.

‘The only notable difference was the provision of a twin coil and rear of engine mounted distributor ignition system, as opposed to the single system fitted to European market 365 GTC/4 models. The quoted power output was the same at 320bhp.

‘The complete transmission system is of the same layout as that on the 365 GTC/4, with a lengthened propeller shaft due to the increased wheelbase, and different individual gear and final drive ratios. Similarly the suspension layout is almost identical, including the hydraulic rear self- leveling system.
‘The bodies were mounted on a 2700mm wheelbase chassis, which apart from the longer wheelbase and a slightly wider rear track, was virtually identical to that of the 365 GTC/4 model, and all were numbered in the odd chassis number road car sequence. The model was available in right or left hand drive form, with power assisted steering as standard.
‘The standard road wheels were alloy five-spoke star pattern. Borrani wire wheels were also available as an option, but rarely fitted, as they were beginning to look rather dated and out of place on the more angular bodies that were in vogue in the seventies.

‘The 365 GT4 2+2, 400 and 400i, and the Ferrari 412 (Tipo F101) are all front-engined V12 2+2 GT’s made between 72 and 89. The cars are closely related -same body, chassis & engine. Following Ferrari practices, designations refer to their displacement expressed in cubic cm.

‘The 365 GT4 2+2 was introduced in 1972 to replace the 365 GTC/4. It then evolved into the 400, the first Ferrari available with an automatic transmission along with the traditional 5-speed manual.
‘In 1979 the 400 was replaced by the fuel-injected 400i. The improved 412 ran from 1985 to 1989, bringing Ferrari’s longest production series to an end. It was replaced by the 456, introduced in 1994.
‘But when you purchase the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 we have here at Beverly Hills Car Club, you know it will never be replaced.
