Lot 110

1970 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 by Pininfarina

  • Chassis no. 13399
  • Engine no. 13399 GT

Sold for £224,250

Documents: Dutch Kentekenbewijs


  • Believed to be the first Ferrari delivered new to Singapore
  • One of only 52 produced in right-hand drive


Replacing the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was the 365 GT 2+2, formally debuted at the 1967 Paris Motor Salon. One of the most extensively accessorised grand tourers in the history of Ferrari, a total of 801 vehicles would be produced over the three-year production run.

Designed for true cross-country touring, the 365 GT 2+2 was not only large enough for the whole family and their luggage, but also powerful enough to call itself a proper Ferrari. The 365 GT 2+2 offered here is powered by the 4.4-litre ‘Colombo’ V12 engine – capable of an astounding 320 bhp and hitting a top speed of 153 mph. Despite a 2-ton curb weight, the Ferrari handles beautifully and is designed to be comfortably driven every day.

Chassis number 13399 GT offered here is the first ‘Queen Mary’ delivered new to Singapore – delivered in English specification with the odometer reading in miles. Other desirable equipment included the highly sought-after Borrani wire wheels and the newly standard air conditioning, stereo, power windows and Connolly leather interior. Adding to the comfort of the interior was the newly extended cabin room – allowing for more luggage and legroom.

Sold into Australia in 1981, chassis number 13399 GT was issued an ADR Compliance Assessment Certificate by the Australian authorities before being sold to the third owner, Peter James Tucker, who maintained the vehicle for more than three decades. It was Tucker who repainted the 365 GT from the original Oro Kelso to the current dark blue, though he retained the black leather interior. In 2016, 13399 GT was purchased by its current owner and was subsequently exported to the Netherlands.

A rare and beautifully maintained right-hand-drive model, complete with original tools and books encased in the leather folder, chassis 13399 GT offers the chance to own a very handsome example of a comfortable, powerful and adept grand tourer.
