Bonhams - Goodwood revival - Peter Morgan Ferrari 365GT4 2+2


1973 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 Berlinetta
Registration no. BWP 671M
Chassis no. 17327

• One of only 524 made
• Rare right-hand drive example
• Benefiting from considerable recent expenditure
• Ferrari Classiche certified


Introduced towards the end of 1972, the 365 GT4 2+2 was the biggest and best equipped four-seater Ferrari so far. Flagship of the Maranello range, it reaffirmed Ferrari's determination to compete with the world's finest luxury saloons. Based on the preceding 365 GT 2+2, albeit lower, longer and wider, the newcomer was fitted with a four-cam version of the 4.4-litre V12 engine while retaining its predecessor's mechanical underpinnings. A total of only 524 had been completed by the time production ceased in 1976.

A rare right-hand drive manual transmission model supplied new in the UK via Maranello Concessionaires, this fine example of the ultimate Ferrari of its day was purchased by the immediately preceding owner from a UK auction in 2014. The comprehensive history file reveals that the Ferrari's first owner was Andrew Grima, the society jeweller, he then sold it to Peter Morgan of the Morgan Motor Company who registered it with his private registration number 'AB 16'. The car comes complete with Mr Morgan's engraved umbrella together with the original handbooks, warranty card, tool roll, and bill of sale.
