    I'm looking for information on a 1972 365GTC4 (original owner, prior owners, etc.). It is red with cream interior. The number of the car is 15193 and it has been in the Chicago area since at least 1985. Joe Marchetti had it for a period prior to that. Any help is appreciated.

    C/4's look good in just about any color, other than red. Always amazed by the number I've seen over the years painted non-original red.

    This red reminds me of the red my 365GT was painted when I bought it. It was whatever red Ron Tonkin Chevrolet paint shop had sitting around! Now back to a (still probably wrong) more appropriate silver.

    Who was it, Shelby maybe, that said: "Ford truck red is cheaper than Ferrari red.."
