The 365 was Ferrari's large FR layout GT car and 2+2 line, replacing the 330 and 500 Superfast for 1966. Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, it featured evolutionary styling by Pininfarina. The famous 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" with its sharp-creased styling often overshadows this, its more rounded brother.


365 California

Ferrari 365 California

The 365 California replaced the 500 Superfast for 1966. It was the first 365 model, with its 4.4 L (4390 cc/267 in³) V12 based on the 330's 4.0 L Colombo unit but with an 81 mm bore. The 365 California used the same chassis as the 500 Superfast but with an evolutionary cabriolet body by Pininfarina. Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show in 1966, just 14 examples were produced before production ended the next year.

On June 28, 2005, a pristine 365 California sold for €736,000 (US$890,000).


365 GT 2+2

The most popular rounded 365 model was 1967's 365 GT 2+2. As the name implies, it was a four-seat coupe, replacing the 330 GT 2+2. Like the car it replaced, the GT 2+2 had an independent suspension in the rear rather than the live axle of the 365 California.

The 365 GT 2+2 was a luxurious car with leather seats, power steering and brakes, electric windows, and optional air conditioning. It quickly became the company's top-selling model, with about 800 produced in four years.



365 GTS

1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona


The 330 GTS spyder was replaced in 1968 by the 365 GTS. It was essentially just a re-engine of that car, however, with even the styling remaining almost the same. Differences were limited to non-vented front fenders and a vented hood. Just 20 were built before its place was assumed by the Daytona-based 365 GTS/4.

365 GTC

Ferrari 365 GTC

Like the GTS, the 330 GTC was replaced for 1968 by the 365 GTC. Again a simple re-engine job, this coupe featured the same styling changes as the Spyder. About 150 examples were built between the beginning of 1969 and 1970. It was replaced by the 365 GTC/4 Daytona.
