    Hi all
    My local dealer recently acquired a 73 GTC in blu ortis (I believe. It’s contemporary cousin is pozzi I would say). It is stunning. We are interested in a vintage Ferrari and this one seems to be in our price range. It is not a model that I know a ton about. Does anyone have any strong opinions? It would theoretically be our fourth but all of the others are modern. Thanks for any advice.

    You need to clarify what you are referring to.
    There are no '73 365 GTC models.
    The last 365 GTC/4 was in 1972, I believe.
    Your post makes no sense.

    I meant to type 72. I assume other than that it makes sense to you.

    I want a GTC/4 myself. I think they are really neat cars, and blue is a good color for one. They have generally been a tough sell in the market these days (I watch it pretty closely). They aren't sports cars, but rather grand touring cars made for long distance travel, and from everything I can see, they excel at it.

    Best sound amongst classic Ferraris of that era, avoid silver and red, blue is a great color for them. I drove five and loved them, there was a tunnel nearby, I called it my sound chamber:) Very pleasant for long trips and its rarity is appealing in itself.

    Hi Adam, I have owned C4 for many years and love the car.It has been stone reliable and is a great car for the long haul.A bit tight under the hood when doing work but still a car that you can work on yourself. Once the car is in tune it tends to stay that way.My car is Marrone [brown] with a saddle interior. People love that it is not red and as stated above it's rarity is part of it's charm. Good luck,Mike

    I owned 15693 for 15 years and wish I still had it. Wonderful cars with lots of character. Motors are a stinker to rebuild (correctly). Ask me how I know.

    Adam, I believe that it's my car that you're speaking of. I'd be more than happy to discuss details of the car. It's currently listed with Motorcar Studio in Atlanta. Feel free to PM me directly and we'll exchange contact info.

    Thanks to everyone for the replies. This car is actually in Illinois, however, and came from New York. I don't know the chassis number but will find out soon I am sure.

    80% of a Daytona for 1/3 the price. In 1987 my father was torn between the C4 and the 365 GT 2+2. In the end he went for the 365 GT 2+2 because he liked the older design and feel. My memory is that the C4 felt more modern and was definitely quicker. The back seat in the C4 is a package rack at best, where as the GT 2+2 is a proper 2+2. If you’ve never had a vintage Ferrari, they are an acquired taste. I love mine, but there are definitely days when a modern car is appealing. Mine hates Chicago traffic and has been known to puke coolant when there’s a Cubs game. Out on the open road, it’s a classic front engine v12. They pull like a freight train and just go and go.

    One reason I want a C/4 is because I think it's a perfect bookend with my 365GT 2+2. They are only a year or so apart, and yet the C/4 feels like it's a decade newer, at least in my opinion. In a way, the last of the old and the first of the new.
