    Found this cruising on Ebay. They refer to it as the owner converting it to a 365 California:

    Interesting story:

    YOU ARE BIDDING ON A BEAUTIFUL 1968 FERRARI 365 GT. 2+2 PININFARINA.THE CAR WAS PURCHASED IN THE MID 80'S BY A FERRARI COLLECTOR AND WAS CONVERTED IN TO A 365 CALIFORNIA SPIDER AS FAR AS WE KNOW THERE WERE ONLY 3 BUILT, ONE OF THE CARS WE HAVE HERE AT ROYAL PALM MOTORS IN FLORIDA , THE SECOND IS IN NEW JERSEY WITH A FERRARI COLLECTOR AND THE THIRD WE ARE NOT SURE ABOUT. THIS CAR WAS BUILT BY A GROUP OF CRAFTS MEN IN ITALY THAT USED TO WORK FOR CARROZERIA SCAGLIETTI IN THE LATE 60'S THEY CONVERTED THESE 3 VEHICLES IN TO CALIFORINA SPIDERS IN THE LATE 80'S.THE CAR WAS RESTORED TO A HIGH STANDARD MECHANICALLY AND COSMETICALLY IT HAS BEEN GARAGED KEPT EVER SINCE AND HARDLEY USED EXCEPT TO KEEP IT RUNNING.THE CAR IS GREAT WITH A SMOOTH (5SPEED) TRANSMISSION, GREAT CLUTCH AND BREAKS.THE FERRARI IS OUTSTANDING ALL AROUND.THIS IS DEFIANTLY A EYE CATCHER AND A GREAT CAR TO DRIVE.

    Worth looking at the photos as it does come off rather well.

    Bryanp - the perfect companion for your car!
