    Sixteen were originally painted Arancio Vaguely 95.3.2943.
    I assume the majority of these is in the meantime re-sale red..........

    Red does not seem to be the favorite color in the C/4 cars. Most for sale are red.

    16081 was originally painted Marrone Colorado 2.443.221 with a Beige VM 3218 interior.
    Repainted years later in a fantasy color (sort of orange).

    I read where there were 174 US spec C/4's made out of the total of 505. Is correct? How many in silver?
    Any records of that?

    I know this GTC/4 very well. It belonged to a friend of mine. I drove it sometimes. Besides being beautiful, the GTC/4s are fast. And what a sound. I hope the new owner will return it to its original Marrone Colorado.

    While I can't give you an accurate number for the 365 GTC/4 models ordered in silver a little comparison might be useful. In 1972 there were six USA 365 GTB/4 models ordered in silver. Five of those had a black interior. For your purpose it seems silver was one of the more common Ferrari colors. One other thing was the broad mix of colors with only two or three cars in a particular color unlike now when half the colors ordered seem to be red.

    Thinking of putting Borrani wires on my C/4. Have never had them so wondering about any positive or negative issues with them.
    Please advise thoughts on Borrani's on C/4.
    Believe they could be ordered on the C/4. Hurt value/authenticity of adding ones not on original car?
    Thanks,
    John

    I'd say installing Borranis is (and should be) a personal preference choice and as long as you hold on to the OEM wheels there shouldn't be any negative value effect.

    A personal choice, but I'd say Borranis are made for 60s era cars and visualy not adapted to GTC/4s or GTB/4s.

    When I bought my C/4 in early 2000, it had authentic Borrani rims.
    I had them redone, but even in "as new" condition I thought that they never looked right on the car.
    AND.... it seemed like 3 or 4 times a year I got a flat, which was a huge PITA to repair. Remember wire wheels use tubes, and tubes are not that forgiving when it comes to punctures.
    I located an original set of cast wheels from Tom Shaunhessy and never looked back.
    IMHO the C/4 looks much better with the cast wheels. Here are 2 pictures I took of my car in 2004.

    I agree and while I personally find the look of Cromodoras on above models much more appealing, some owners seem to prefer Borranis.
    I also tend to feel more confidence driving (365 GTB/4s) with solid construction wheels, especially at higher speeds and/or twisty roads.

    I like the borranis much better on this car
    both design, so from the car and from the borranis, looks more filigrane and so matching together

    Borranis work visually on C4's but it is borderline and definitely the last Ferrari they are acceptable on. For hard use such as track days I would definitely fit normal wheels. Here is my favorite C4 which I brought to the Cavallino Classic in 2004 (IIRC) for Motorcar Gallery, shown here at Moroso, oro kelso senape, just gorgeous. my Khamsin had the exact same colours. It later went to Chicago and then Australia. Copyright indicated. The second photo shows it later in Australia. About 9 years ago I saw a perfect twin to this car in the barn of a castle in France covered with dust...
