Superseding the 330GT 2+2, the 365 “Queen Mother” was aptly named for being, possibly, the most opulent Ferrari produced in the period. Equipped as standard with power steering, power brakes, power windows, leather and air conditioning, this touring tour-de-force was produced between 1967 and 1971 with only 800 examples being recorded.
Although she weighed in at a hefty 3,200lbs, the extra weight was of no consequence to the traditional Colombo V-12 engine, which had now been enlarged to 4.4L and produced 320bhp. The live rear axle from the 330 was now gone as well – replaced with a completely independent rear suspension that included a revolutionary self-leveling system. Jointly imagined by Ferrari and Koni, it adjusted for the changing weights of passengers and cargo.
This particular car presents in extremely rare and original condition. First known owner was a Mr. Carl Debickero (a Floridian business owner who may have purchased the car in Illinois) who was persuaded by his wife to purchase the Grand Tourer. In the early 1980’s, the car changed hands to another Florida resident. The car had covered only 23,273 miles when the second owner finally sold the car to a New York collector in 1987. For the next 29 years, the car was stored in an underground garage with no exposure to the elements or damaging UV light, preserving the interior from deterioration. When Classic Investments discovered it in 2015, the car registered 24,882 miles – a number consistent with the title transfer in 1987! In its original livery, and in Show condition, 30+ year Ferrari specialists at Classic Investments completed a full service totaling $30k in documented receipts. Classic Investments displayed this car at the 2016 Cavallino Classic where it was crowned the winner for 1949-1975 preservation.
