SOLD - 1972 Ferrari Daytona - Thanks Peter!

Thanks for viewing this stunning Ferrari Daytona Coupe. The 365 Daytona is generally regarded as one of Ferrari's greatest ever GT's. A combination of enormous performance, stunning Pininfarina bodywork and its place in history as the last front-engined Ferrari GT that Fiat had no hand. Therefore it occupies a special place in Maranello history. The press in recognition of the prancing horse’s stunning 1-2-3 victory unofficially conjured up the world famous Daytona name at 1967's Daytona 24 Hours. Rumors persist that Ferrari was actually intending to name their new model as such but for some reason they never officially used this evocative title themselves. (from www.daytonaregistry.com)

15423 is a beautiful matching numbers and thoroughly sorted 365 GTB/4. The paint is very good, without any significant blemish, only showing normal wear associated with driving and detailing. The metal trim, badges, mirrors and window glass are all in excellent condition. The tan “Daytona” seats have black inserts and although they have been restored, they have just enough patina to pass for excellent condition original seats. The dashboard, carpet and other interior pieces are also all excellent. 

In 2012, 15423 was treated to a comprehensive mechanical refurbishment by Automotive International in Charlotte North Carolina. The bills from this refurbishment, which included cosmetic work, interior work, mechanical restoration and a complete engine rebuild, totaling almost $80,000, are available for inspection. The bills are also via this link below to give you an idea how thoroughly this beautiful Ferrari has been sorted.

In 2014, given a thorough service and fitted with a new a/c compressor. 

In 2015, "addressed “running rich" and exhaust issues, and sorted”. Fine tuned and synchronized all carburetors, checked all valves clearances, and sealed exhaust system.  Thorough inspection of engine as planned follow-up to the rebuild.
