It has the single inlet on the right side but I assume it is still semi gloss.

Correct, this is the late style for cold/warm inlet.

I exchanged emails with Vicki in the FCA organizing group. They have not yet settled on the fee for the general public to come see the Concours, but it may come out about $20. They are also considering a VIP ticket for the Concours that would include lunch -- intended for special friends or family w...

We are planning to go to Toronto and will also probably show the car for "display only". (I don't think I can improve on the Gold from 2007, because I don't have the time and $$$ to make some good things into perfect things. I also don't want to ever be afraid of driving the car, on the basis of dam...

Re: high pressure oil hose

I just replaced mine this Autumn. The original hose was a braided galvanized finish, and it appeared original. No finish other than it's natural patinated appearance. I had Bill at gt car parts install new hose of the same type onto my original fittings. God only knows how he did it. Lots of things...

With the 365, you do not perceive much difference in the time to go from 80-90, then 90-100, then 110-120. It IS just like a train, and all in complete comfort - including AC if it is hot outside.

Hi Tom, If I had unlimited funds (which I don't), I would have two classic V-12 Ferrari 2+2's. One would be a 95+ point car for shows and the other would be my daily driver in all but the worst winter weather. Our two daily drivers are both as fast or faster to 60 mph than my 365, but there is NO co...

I talked to Tom recently and he is OK, though the fires are not far away. He says the TV coverage doesn't really show the extent of the tragedies.

#12451 is also twin electrics. Zac advised me to have both the early and late parts books for my car, as the break of 12811 is not perfect for every item for cars in the mid-VIN range. I find the late book to be right most of the time, though my car is a bit before the VIN break. I suspect, but do n...

Hi, Tom. The belts are not shown, even in the Pininfarina body parts book. They are mentioned on page 29 of my owners manual, but not pictured. All the belts are manual adjustment types, not inertia reels. The shoulder straps for the fronts mount on the rear quarters, about centered over the little ...

The research on lap-only belts is well known, three points are the only way to go. My US version 365 came with manually adjusted three point belts, front and rear - with only one buckle for each seat. There is a double loop at the buckle on the strap coming from the shoulder portion which allows a b...

"I got one from Ferrari UK for my C4 . Dont know if it is the same . A repro but a nice piece. Did have to do a bit of modification on it though. Mike" Thanks for the info, Mike. Does your C4 parts book quote the Borletti part number for the angle drive -- the one for the 365 GT 2+2 is Borletti numb...

Tach Angle Drive 365 GT 2+2

Anybody got a spare or have any good leads on one?

Both the early and late parts books say it is Borletti #50.0530.990.0

Dittos on the congratulations. Wonder what the market and the reputation for the cars we love will be when the car is 75 years old ?
