We are pleased to offer 1971 USA model Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 14173. This USA model 365 GTB/4 comes with a fully documented ownership history going back thirty-nine years to its first owner in 1972. This Daytona was delivered new and has always been finished in Ferrari red with black leather and gray carpets. Ferrari 365 GTB/4 s/n 14173 has all the original Factory-fitted smog equipment in place. It runs and drives better than new with a very strong engine thanks to competition cams and pistons. The transaxle is smooth up and down. We have all records back to the 1980s and a $17,433.35 engine–out service was completed in 2005 at 59,045 miles. Complete with the original issue of Road & Track with the Daytona road test, Factory service manual, Factory technical manual and Factory chassis service manual, a complete Factory tool kit ($12,000), the owner’s manual and an original Daytona sales brochure. Also comes with a car cover and carrying bag, an original Becker Mexico radio and an original clock.

This Daytona runs and drives extremely well, handles like a dream and has all the power Daytonas are known for. It was driven from Southern California to Concorso Italiano and back in 2005 without a miss, and is a very well sorted driver with all the goodies for show. Very nice body, good older paint, excellent mechanicals and dual A/C that really works! Just completed a detailed body and mechanical inspection before we sold it to the current owner in 2007, in a large private collection since 2007 with almost no miles added. Priced right in today’s market at $359,500 or best offer.
