Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 by Pininfarina 1969 - World Of Classic Cars -

Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 by Pininfarina 1969

The 365 GT 2+2 shown here, chassis number 12333, was originally delivered to renowned car enthusiast William F. Harrah’s West Coast Ferrari distributorship, Modern Classic Motors, in Reno, Nevada. It was finished in Argento Metallizzato with Rosso (VM 3171) leather and road-tested for a feature article in the November 1969 issue of Road & Track magazine as such. This is confirmed by a photograph of the chassis number tag featured on page 42! Persistent rumour also holds that it was used by Mr Harrah as a personal car, as mentioned in the article.

The car was sold new in 1969 and was later acquired in the 1970s by John Davidson, the American singer and television game show host, with whom it was listed in Ferrari Owners’ Club USA rosters with his wife, Jacqueline. It was sold in the late 1980s to David Dworsky, of Hidden Hills, California, and remained in his ownership for some years before being sold to another enthusiast owner in California.
Following a restoration in the 2000s, the car was damaged in an accident whilst cruising down 17 Mile Drive near Pebble Beach. It was sold in that condition to Tom Shaughnessy and was eventually acquired, with a new beige interior, by its present owner. The car was subsequently repaired, restored, and refinished in Nero and has remained part of the owner’s collection since.
