I got some background information about it from Ferrari Market Letter. In 1987, ick McClure, Ferrari collector from Stockton, A, ought the car from Leonard Blaylock III of Houston. The car was rough and disassembled and the parts were in the trunk and interior. McClure restored it and rebuilt the engine over the next 6 years with the help of Patrick Ottis, ne of the top Ferrari mechanics as I'm sure you know, nd Geoff Ohland. He then showed it at Concorso Italiano and other venues and rallied it.I have about $70,000 of invoices from before I bought the car in 2010 from McClure, hrough Tom Shaugnessy. As I said in my prior email, bought the Borranis from Tom. I also had him rebuild the brake booster and clutch and various other things and bought a toolroll and jack and roll ($7,500 and probably worth more now) from him. I also either bought an original owner’s manual from him or perhaps someone else. I enjoyed the car but didn't put very many miles on it, eeping it at my weekend house in Michigan near South Bend. I had my mechanic in La Porte, N, orman Garage, nstall new correct carpets, ncluding the trunk, period correct radio (I think it's a Becker) that I bought from Europe and the headlight covers. I also had them change the AC compressor to a Japanese one which works much better, ut the old York compressor comes with the car.

Because I had some difficulty shifting, sent the car to my friend Greg Jones in FL, nother top Ferrari mechanic and also one of the top judges, ho rebuilt the transmission and corrected a problem with the clutch cable - the car now shifts beautifully; better than my 330 GTC. The reason I'm selling the 365 is that I don't need two V-12 cars, lthough I'm thinking about getting a Dino as I mentioned. Greg also put in correct door and trunk rubber and repaired the gauges so all of them work. He also fixed the clock! He also put in a new exhaust system and correct hangers. When I decided to use the car on the GTTSR, had him source and install a rebuilt radiator. The car didn't overheat at all, ven when he was testing it in Florida.

I also had Greg handle getting Classiche certification from Ferrari. When inspecting andadjustingthe valves noticed the cams that had been recondition many years ago where not holding up. Wedecidedto install new megacycle cam shafts and rocker arm bushing, ins and rollers, s well as ball type tappet screws. When Greg was doing that, e also painted the cam covers and air cleaner with the correct crackle finish.

I sent the car back to Greg after the rally. He replaced the windshield (I picked up a chip from that one stretch of the rally that had gravel), leaned the car inside and out, ncluding the wheels, ixed the ignition switch (you’ll recall that I broke the key on the first day of the rally) and tightened everything down. And as well as fresh oil change.

In summary, he engine and transmission of this car and many other systems were rebuilt by two of the top Ferrari guys in the U.S. (Wayne Obry knows them both), t has a lot of new and correct equipment including the carpet, ires and camshafts, t has tools and a jack and I have all of the service records going back to 1987. And everything on it worked and performed flawlessly at high speed over 1,200 miles.
