Vehicle Description
1969 Ferrari 365 GTC / S Spyder Conversion
Coachwork by Pininfarina /Graypaul
Chassis No: 12249
Engine No: 12253

Rosso with Nero leather, Nero roof

Originally a closed coupé, chassis number ‘12249’ was specified from the factory in Grigio Le Sancy with Blue leather, Blue carpets and light grey headlining, cast alloy wheels.

Received by Maranello Concessionaires 28/03/1969 and first registered to John Haston 25.04.69 it is an original right hand drive UK car and was subsequently owned by famous Ferrari collector A P Bamford with the registration mark being recorded as ‘JCB 4’

Launched in 1968, the 365 GTC was similar to that of the last of the 330 GTCs but with a larger capacity V12 engine delivering more torque at medium revs, greater flexibility and livelier acceleration. From a visual perspective the major difference saw the engine bay air inlets moved from the flanks to the bonnet. Approximately two hundred were built.

Built between February and October 1969, the convertible 365 GTS had the same refined mechanicals as the 365 GTC with the wonderfully torquey Weber fed 60° V12 delivering huge reserves of power and open top driving thrills. Just 20 365 GTSs were built.

During the late 1970’s Chassis number ‘12249’ was converted by marque specialists Graypaul Motors to 365 GTS spec, working alongside an original 365GTS for reference to create an incredibly authentic conversion using parts sourced directly from the Ferrari factory resulting in what is believed to be the only right-hand drive Ferrari 365 in Spyder configuration.

The extensive history file details work and corresponding invoicing for the period 1979-1983 totalling in excess of £28,000 spend on the project with the official dealer.

The car has been regularly maintained having undergone a substantial mechanical refresh billing in excess of £34,000 in 2018.

This beautiful Ferrari is offered for sale as a project to be completed by the next owner.
