Known History

Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona #16517 was supplied originally in Giallo fly (fly yellow) with nero VM8500 (black) leather interior. It has the optional A/C.

 

The car was imported new into Germany through the then official importer Auto Becker of Düsseldorf. On May 22, 1973 it was sold to the first owner, Gerhard Remp, a plasterer of Mannheim. He had it registered on the same day on plate MA-EY 292.

 

Shortly after he had a light crash when another car hit the Daytona in the door on the driver's side. Probably during the repairs, #16517 was repainted in silvergrey metallic.

 

In 1974 or 1975, Remp sold the car to the second owner, Artur Hoffmann of Wiesloch, owner of the Mannheim-based company Papierkontor and a long-time Ferrari customer. Hoffmann had it registered on plate HD-LN 955. During 1975, Artur Hoffmann moved to Viernheim in the neighboring county and had the Daytona re-registered on July 11, 1975 on plate HP-DA 704.

 

Only one week later, on July 18, 1975 Hoffmann sold his Ferrari to the third owner, Khosrow Massoudi of Weinheim. Massoudi had the car registered on plate HD-VD 999.

 

In spring of 1976, Massoudi placed the car for sale on consignment at a used-car dealer in Heidelberg. The dealer managed to sell the car on June 16, 1976 to its current lady owner.

 

Being an avid sportscar-lover, she did most of the current total mileage of 72.710 kilometres. She remembers very well a high-speed trip to Paris in the late 1970s, hardly going slower than 200 km/h on the empty French motorway!

 

In the late 1980s, her interests changed and she decided to put the car in storage. The registration was cancelled on October 31, 1989.

 

Since then, the car has been stored undriven and is now in need of a total restoration.

 

The bodywork shows rust in the usual spots: On the door panels, below the C-pillars and in the trunk. The crash repair has reportedly been performed in a rather cheap way, showing signs of bondo-use. The fitting of the driver's door is poor, while the fittings in general are very good.

 

The interior, including the "mouse-hair" dashboard, is very good and might be preserved in its original condition. Some repairs might be necessary to the seams of the leather seats, though.

 

The car was serviced regularly while in use, but the mechanical components will very probably need a rebuild after the long period of storage.

 

The tools and the jack come with the car, but unfortunately the pouch has been stolen from the car during storage.

 

Ferrari Classiche has confirmed that all numbers - chassis, engine and gearbox - are matching.

 

Car can be inspected on appointment in south western Germany.
