Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1969 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 Coupe

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. A non-red Ferrari listed on eBay by the same seller who listed this beautiful De Tomaso Mangusta for sale recently, which sold to a My Car Quest reader.

This Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 Coupe is listed on eBay with a starting bid of $127,770 with a reserve.

This is a special example of the Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 with low miles and a great color combination – a nice contrast to just another red Ferrari. The price reflects the low mileage and the restored condition.

It is very important to understand the history, which was not described in the eBay ad. It is critical to understand the mechanical condition because fixing a problem on these old Ferraris could wipe out any investment potential. I would also like to know why a restoration was needed on such a low mileage example.

If there were no back seats in this Ferrari the price would be more than double the price of this Ferrari. These Ferrari 2+2 models represent a chance to own a real V12 Ferrari from the Enzo era at a “bargain” price.

This example would be a great car to drive on a sunny day and take to area car shows where I am sure it would stand out among the sea of red Ferraris.

    Mike, this is one crazy good looking Ferrari. Black on black works and has a top hat full of style as well. As with all things mechanical one would need to buy with a full understanding where the money sits in the car. It’s so stunning I’d want to drive it daily so then for me the investment potential would be giving it some stick as often as could.

    Good call on the restoration, Mike. My guess would be as with the Pantera is that this car sat in storage for whatever reason. One must really look into the past of such cars to make sure there are no stories. One thought is that it had a serious mechanical problem (engine) or possibly a wreck and ended up sitting in garage/barn. This level of car purchase definitely requires a PPI. Good thing about Ferrari and cars of similar stature is that most of them are professionally maintained and have a service paper trail. I doubt that many owners of these cars would bother to even replace a light bulb on their own (no offense to anyone, just an opinion).
