So many models, all spectacular! The first car built bearing the Ferrari name came in 1947. Road cars took second place to the racing division for the first 20 years or so. These Pininfarina designed beauties had an unparalled reputation. The following are some of the beauties manufactured by Ferrari with approximate production figures
195 production 25. A crude tubular chassis with coil springs but enlarged engines.
America 375 Built 13 in the early 50's. These cars still retained the old chassis layout with an extended wheelbase, a 4 speed transmission could be specified.
250 GT 1954-1962 production of 905. This is the time when Ferrari and Pininfarina were beginning what would become a mutually profitable relationship. The GT was 8 inches shorter than the Europa (it's predecessor) and had a 2953cc engine. Disc brakes were used from late 59. And after 1960 the 4 speed came with overdrive.
250 GT SWB 1959 - 1964 production 232. The short wheel base version of the 250GT (94.5 inches). There were 3 different versions. The Scaglietti Berlinetta, the Pininfarina California Spyder (photo) and the Pininfarina Lusso.(see below) This car had a stiffer frame which gave the car excellent road holding and balance.
250 GT SWB Lusso 1962 - 1965 Production 350. The lusso (luxury) version of the above model was an extremely well appointed car.
330 GT + 2 1965 - 1968 production of 1000. This model had the same chassis as the 250GT. Alloy wheels became standard and Borrani wires were an option. A 5 speed replaced the 4 speed.
275 GTS & GTB 1964 -1967 production 940 (all types) The replacement of the 250 Series. Still had the tubular frame and all independent suspension. the S (Spyder) (photo left) was intended as a road car and had a 260 bhp engine, but the B (Berlinetta) (photo right) had a 280bhp. There was also a lightweight 275GTB/C.
365 GTS / 365GTC 1968 - 1969 / 1968 - 1970 production 20 / 200. A new level of build quality combined with excellent performance and handling. An updated version of the 330 GTC which was given a 4.4 Liter SOHC, which improved torque.
Dino 246GT / GTS 1969 - 1973 production 2800 / 1200 This model was not a great seller since it did not reach it's obvious market of America. A 2 liter car with little luggage space. The 2.4 liter version was a better seller. A quick, nimble car. Five stud alloy wheels appeared in mid 1970.
365GTC/4 1971-1972 productio of 500 A popular version which replaced the 365 GTC and 365 2+2. A similar chassis to the Daytona with a 5 speed.
365GT4 1972 - 1975 production of 470 This replacement for the 365GTC/4 used a slightly longer chassis, with luxurious appointments.
Dino 308GT4 1973 - 1979 production of 2826 A 3 liter car with a V8 dohc engine. Quicker than the previous Dino's it could do 0 - 60 in 6.4 seconds with a top speed of 150+ mph. + 2 seating made the car more practical, body styled by Bertone not Pininfarina.
365GT4BB 1973 - 1976 production of 387 4.4 liter dohc engine on a new frame with all independent suspension. The BB stands for Berlinetta Boxer. The first road car that did not have a Vee engine.
