A simply amazing Daytona... This example has covered a mere 8,500 miles from new. The original matching-numbers engine has been fully maintained by Daytona specialists over the years. Due to the fact that it is still essentially a factory-fresh Ferrari-built but run in motor, it unleashes its power with the particular ease that made the Daytona the legend it is. Driving this example, it is easy to believe it was the fastest production car on the planet for many years. The car has never been neglected and had to be “brought back” to pristine condition as many cars have; it has remained a prize possession continually during its 46-year life. It has been the subject of considerable recent work to keep it amongst the best presented and driving imaginable. This includes a colour change back to Blu Dino Metallizato (it’s original colour when new) and interior re-trim to exacting standards using the correct Connolly hides, both carried out by ourselves four years ago. Electric power steering was fitted at the same time. Mechanical works recently carried out include full suspension restoration, new clutch and servicing by marque specialists. Fitted with optional Boranni wheels, however, the original wheels are also included. Only 121 Spyders were produced by the factory, leading to a number of specialists offering conversions to coupe owners. Chassis number 15951 was converted in 1978 by Richard Straman Coachworks in California. Richard Straman was renowned for the exceptional quality and accuracy of his work, and this example was completed to exacting standards. The overall excellence of the metalwork on the body was evidenced when we repainted the car in 2013 (photos on file). Our MD, Iain Tyrrell has inspected a number of Spyder conversions over the years for clients, and this is by far the best executed example he has seen. A stunning car that is ready to enjoy.
It is believed that less than 15 of the 158 Daytonas supplied new in the UK were supplied in this car's colour. It is stunning in its original Argento (silver) and still has a beautiful Connolly interior finished to original colour VM3015 (blue with black Daytona stripes). This car is well known to us, as it was sold to the present owner after we completed a full engine overhaul in our workshop, using an original old-stock set of brand-new factory oversize Borgo Daytona pistons, and having individually bored and honed each cylinder liner to suit. This ensures absolutely correct running clearances and balance. The original and fragile sodium-cooled exhaust valves have been replaced by an unleaded conversion set made of modern, high specification material. This is an essential preventative upgrade for all Ferrari engines of this period. The interior was also sympathetically refurbished by our ex-Connolly craftsman and looks virtually new (it is hard to find leather now of the quality Connolly originally presented and to find original period leather of this quality in a Daytona today is very rare indeed). The dashboard was re-covered in its original expensive "mousehair", and still looks like new. We have also recently fitted electric power steering, which greatly improves low speed manoeuvrability. The car has covered 36,000 miles from new, with a history including over 20 MOT certificates (from the very first one in 1975) and the original factory order form. This car is highly desirable, almost certainly one of the best on the market, a lovely thing to behold and drive, and a first class investment opportunity.

Variant: 365 GTB/4 The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 was first displayed at the Paris Auto Salon back in 1968. This was the highly anticipated successor to the most expensive and fastest street legal Ferrari ever built - the 275 GTB/4. The car shown in Paris was built by Pininfarina and showcased the glorious lines which the car is now known for. The unofficial name of ""Daytona"" was applied by the media to pay homage to Ferrari's 1-2-3 win at Daytona 24 hour race in 1967. The 365 GTB/4 was the last V12 Ferrari to be designed before Fiat took over control of the road car production after purchasing 40% of the shares. The early cars featured the headlights sat in the front nose behind a piece of plexiglass. The later cars (such as this one) featured twin retractable lights which is deemed to give the front end a much cleaner look to it. This particular car was originally supplied to the UK first registered in November 1973. It comes with an extensive folder of history and also complete with it's Classiche folder.
Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona Plexiglass Offered here is a matching numbers, 1970 Plexiglass Daytona, fresh from 'The Collection'. It is a LHD finished in Rosso Red and retrimmed with Black leather. Our car was originally supplied in Pino Verdi which today again is an extremely desirable colour. The Plexiglass cars are fast outsripping the later pop up headlight cars in value as they are gaining the recognition they deserve as the original design. The later cars headlights were modified only to satisfy the import laws in the USA, taking away from the ultra modern and unique in the period, plexiglass front covered headlights. This example has had a bare metal resparay, complete retrim in Black leather complemented by new black carpets etc to a very high standard.
