Wrecked 67 Ferrari GTC pulling a healthy price

I got this listing from a thread over on the Studebaker forum. Its an interesting car which in good condition might well be worth 3/4 a mil. This one was totalled and then stored not very well for ten years or so. I would not be surprised to see it exceed $300K as is.

Sorry that link sucks. Its a 67 Ferrari GTC if you want to search for it. I don't have time now.

This one?

Ferrari Other Base | eBay

Up to $140k with four days left in the auction. Cool, but way out of my price range.

Perfect car for an OM617 conversion.

one of the best looking Ferraris, after the GTO, from the 60s. Always a little surprised when I compare parts of the interior on one of these to my early 70s Fiat 124 Coupe....looks like some parts commonality. That being said, I'd give a finger for that car, along with a bucket of cash to get it into driver condition.

Yeah but imagine the street cred you'd get here on DD

(and imagine the stoning you'd get from the pringle jumper brigade!)

it's (both of them) actually real. I remember seeing the first one in Road & Track and Car & Driver magazine. Well done combo of when some harrah's employee wrecked the Ferrari and they mated it with the Wagoneer. It was flawless and hauled ass.

Its up to 190K now with three days left to bid.

Yikes!

I wouldn't be surprised if it goes over 300K....even 400.

Jake, Ferrari back in those days was essentially a cottage industry. I don't know the production figures for the GTC but it could be in the hundreds. They bought odds and ends from Fiat Alfa or whomever they could so yes, it could have some of the same parts. also being a pininfarina body it may have a lot of design cues that are very very similar to some of the lesser brands particularly the Italian ones.

Maybe Tom Shaunesey the Ferrari guru guy. He bought a wrench from me I had left over from my 59 Ferrari tool kit.
