The Ferrari 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.
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 (including 2 in right hand drive) before production ended in 1967.
365 GT 2+2
The most popular rounded 365 model was 1968'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.
The 330 GTC was replaced in 1968 by the 365 GTC. It was essentially just a re-engine of the 330 GTC, with even the styling remaining almost the same. Differences were limited to non-vented front fenders and a vented hood. 150 examples were built (including 22 in right hand drive) between the 1968 and 1970. It was replaced by the 365 GTC/4.
Like the 330 GTC, the 330 GTS was replaced in 1968 by the 365 GTS. Again a simple re-engine job, this Spyder featured the same styling changes as the coupe. Just 20 were built before its place was assumed by the 365 GTB/4-based Daytona Spyder.
