    Hi all,
    I was out for a drive today and spotted what looked like a 365 GTB ; the car was dark met. blue and looked awesome.The driver also had a wicked number plate, 365 GTB , which is quite rare in the U.K. Our plates are issued with a letter code [showing year of manufacture] followed by 3 numbers and the then 3 more letters.
    Is the car valuable and does anyone have a picture?
    Thanks.
    Tony

    Then the plate most probably read 365 GTC.

    I think that you saw a car owned by my Dad until about six months ago, which was a 365 GTC registration '365GTC' in chiaro blue with a magnolia interior. He brought it at the Goodwood festival speed auction a couple of years ago when it looked a little sorry for itself. The original intention was to turn it into a 365 GTS but it was rather to nice to cut and it ended up being restored by Shapecraft I believe.

    Dad sold the car as He has now brought an original 330 GTS, The 330 engine isn't nearly as good as the 365 though.

    Not sure if I have any pics of '365GTC' but i'll post them if I find any

    I don't have any photo's of 365 GTC amazingly. Here is a pic of its replacement 330 GTS. The photo comes from the website of the mechanic who does all the work for Dad and I. Maybe I'm biased but I doubt if there is a better Ferrari Mechanic in the country or even Europe. The web site isn't great (created by his son I think) but he has enough work through word of mouth that he doesn't need to advertise. http://www.ferrariservicing.com

    365 GTC. Lovely, elegant car.

    When I grow up, I'm going to swap my Daytona for one of these....
