Here is a brief history of the Ferrari 365 GTC/4 that will be undergoing renovation.
Our barn find was originally ordered on the Ferrari factory by the UK agents Maranello Concessionaires in October 1971. The purchaser was Gerald Ronson – who at the time, amongst his many business interests was chairman of H.R. Owen Ltd. The sales contact at Maranello with responsibility for the sale was Mike Salmon, the well known racing driver who drove on many occasions at Le Mans and other important sportscar events. The car took longer than expected to arrive in the UK, but chassis / engine No. 15131 was eventually delivered in June 1972.
