Don't normally post Ferrari's BUT
This 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Shooting Brake is just to cool.It was designed by Luigi 'Coco' Chinetti Jr. and Gene Garfinkle.This special Ferrari is the 805th of this type of model.This car was originally shipped to the US for sale.Two years later it was shipped back to Europe wear it was turned into a super station wagon by Ligi and Gene. This car has very little of the original exterior. One of the few remaining original items used was the broad hood. The rear of the wagon was very unique as it did not open in the traditional tailgate fashion. Instead, it had gullwing-style rear side windows for access to the cargo deck. Wood decking material was used for the cargo load floor.Just these year the cars went up for sale at Bonhams & Butterfields Sale of Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia were they were asking for 400 to 500 but no the car did not sell for a car with only 4000 miles since new(1972) and one of it's kind it is interesting that this amazing car did not sell.It is powered by a powered by a Columbo SOHC 4390 cc V-12 engine with three Weber carburetors capable of producing around 300 horsepower.
