The Ferrari 365 was Ferrari's large front-engine, rear-wheel-drive 2- and 2+2-seater grand tourer line. The 365 California was the first one in the line-up and replaced the 500 Superfast in 1966. Its 4.4 L V12 engine was based on the 330's 4.0 L Colombo unit, but with an increased bore of 81 mm. This resulted in an engine capable of producing around 316 HP at 6.600 RPM. Integrating the gearbox with the final drive gave these cars a nicely balanced 50:50 weight distribution. The 365 California used the same chassis as the 500 Superfast but with an evolutionary cabriolet body styled by Pininfarina. Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show in 1966, just 14 examples were produced (including 2 right hand drive), before production ended in 1967. Whilst the prototype was built on a 330 GT 2+2 type 571 chassis, production cars featured the type 598 chassis. Chassis' were sent to Pininfarina's Grugliasco plant to be bodied and trimmed which were later returned to Ferrari for fitment of the mechanical components. The most popular 365 model was 1968's 365 GT 2+2, replacing the 330 GT 2+2. Unlike the 330 GT 2+2 car it replaced, which had a live rear axle on leaf springs, the 365GT 2+2 had independent
