FERRARI 365 GTC– ANOTHER GREAT 1960S FERRARI COUPE

The Ferrari 365 GTC might not be the flashiest model in the company’s history, but this V12 coupe has an endearing charm to it that makes it a classic. As part of the 365 line of vehicles produced between 1966 and 1971, the new-for-1968 GTC features a rear-wheel drive, front-engine arrangement, along with 2+2 seating. This was the successor to the 330 GTC, and that fact was plainly obvious to anyone familiar with the two models. Still, the 365 featured one important improvement over the 330: more power.

TWEAKING THE 330 GTC

To produce that extra power, Ferrari simply enlarged the 330’s 4-litre engine, creating a 4.4-litre Colombo V12 capable of producing 320 bhp at 6,600 rpm. Interestingly, this would be the last new Ferrari model to use a single overhead camshaft design. Stylistically, not much changed from the 330’s Pininfarina design. Really, the only significant change they made was to move the prominent exhaust vents from behind the front wheels to the corner of the bonnet. Of course, the “330” badge was also removed, but Ferrari opted not to replace it with a matching “365” badge. 

Even if it doesn’t sport a completely new design, the 365 GTC is a stunner. The projecting oval grille gives the car an athletic appearance while the cabin’s small pillars give it an airy, greenhouse-like ambiance. Unsurprisingly, Ferrari decided to not make any changes to the 330’s independent suspension at all four coners, with coil springs and wishbones keeping the ride remarkably supple for a 60’s-era Ferrari.

PRODUCTION AND LEGACY

Only 168 Ferrari 365 GTCs were built, and that scarcity makes spotting one of these sweethearts today a very special occasion. Its GTS sibling, meanwhile, is even more rare, but that’s a story for another article. The 365 GTC’s delicate, classic styling combines with the sophisticated suspension and powerful V12 to make this one of the best Ferrari grand tourers of its era. The model was replaced by the 365 GTC/4, which saw a vast increase in production numbers over the 365.
