    1967 Ferrari 365 California Spyder

    1967 Ferrari 365 California Spyder
    1 of 10 in existence (14 built)
    Bianco w/Pelle Nero Frangi interior
    41,776 miles

    4.4 liter V12
    Operation Super Rare Rari


    A little info on this vehicle: My client just acquired it. It was originally sold and ‘lived’ in the US, however it went to the UK in the 90’s to be a part of some very special 1960’s Ferrari’s in a collection there. It was air shipped and then brought to me for some correction/protection.




    Some additional reading/history:

    This super rare 365 California Spyder, part of an elite group of only 14 cars produced at Maranello between 1966 and 1967, represents an interesting part of the marque’s heritage. The name ‘California Spyder’ is most often associated with the earlier 250 GT series of cars, of which around one hundred examples were made, especially for the US market. This 250 series was extremely successful, with some lightweight aluminum-bodied examples racing at the 24 Heures du Mans and at Sebring. Ferrari hoped to capitalize on this success by marketing its new 365 Spyder under the ‘California’ umbrella.
    The 365 California was a radical departure from the more common 250 GT Spyders. It used the same well-developed chassis as the 500 Superfast, its immediate predecessor and Ferrari’s most expensive road car at that time. However, the coachwork fitted to the 365 was an evolutionary Spyder body by Pininfarina. It was the first 365 model to be fitted with a V12 long block 4.4 litre engine. As a total package, the 365 California was designed to appeal to Ferrari’s premium customers who demanded a more exclusive and striking coachwork on their grand touring examples. In fact, the 365 California was only offered to select and existing VIP clients of Ferrari.
    Looking at the many desirable attributes of this exquisite Ferrari, it is perhaps the Pininfarina styling that sets it apart. As arguably the last of the great coach built Ferraris, unique elements to the car include its covered headlights, pop-up driving lights and door handles which hint at a mid- engine air intake. Of particular significance is the design treatment at the rear of the car, which was a significant departure from Ferrari’s traditional styling.
    This particular example was delivered to Luigi Chinetti Motors USA in July 1967 and subsequently remained in the States. The Spyder benefitted from a detailed and exacting restoration that took place between 1988 and 1993, which was conducted by Michael Regalia, formerly of the Merle Norman Cosmetics Collection in the USA. The car returned to Europe to form part of a significant collection of great 1960s Ferraris. The Spyder was presented to Ferrari where it was awarded with full red book Classiche certification.


    Vehicle had swirls, a few deeper scratches, embedded dirt in the paint and some sanding marks.

    The ‘details’:
    Adam’s eco wheel cleaner.
    Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner.
    Adam’s rinseless wash.
    Clayed via fine clay mitt.
    Dodo born slippery clay lube.
    Master blaster to dry.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    Scangrip lighting.
    Flex 3401
    Flex XFE15
    Flex Pixie
    Rupes iBrid.
    My hands-quite a bit of hand polishing.
    Griot’s Fast Correcting Cream.
    Griot’s Perfecting Cream.
    Adam’s Revive Hand Polish.
    Beta test metal polish.
    GYEON Tire.
    Auto Finesse glass cleaner.
    McKee’s37 quick interior detailer.
    Metro vacuum.
    Plexus to clean the headlight cover.

    Thank you for looking! I enjoyed working on this beauty!

    Amazing and such a cool car.
    Also, nice to see some miles in it.

    I was fully expecting to see red paint.
