Very good 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder Conversion by Scappini & Bruttomesso of Varese/Italy, based on a 1970 Euro model with perspex headlight-covers, s/n 13637. This car's style was inspired by the one-off 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider Prototype s/n 12851 and it's now an almost perfect lookalike - but WAY cheaper!

Known History

This 1970 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta was supplied new in the color combination of marrone metallizzato (metallic brown) w/beige. Being a 1970 Euro model, s/n 13637 features the desirable perspex headlight-covers.

The car was imported new into Switzerland through SAVAF of Meyrin, and sold on August 14, 1970 to the first owner, Bernd R. Grohe of Clarens, a well-known car and Ferrari enthusiast, of Hans Grohe Fittings fame.

In 1971 or 1972 Grohe sold s/n 13637 to a close friend of his, Roland Zanotelli of Oberfrick, who had it registered on plate AG 201. Old photos from that era are on file.

On April 6, 1973 Zanotelli gave the car in part-trade for a 365 GTC/4 to Willy Felber's Garage Haute Performance in Morges.

Apparently the general taste in regard of colours had already changed and thus Felber repainted the Daytona in red.

In 1974, Willy Felber sold the car to the well-known Ferrari-dealer and -enthusiast Carlo Perego of Renens. Between 1975 and 1976, Perego entrusted the car to Carozzeria Scappini e Bruttomesso of Varese in Italy (then a well-known service and restoration facility which is no longer in existence nowadays) to have it converted into a spyder. The conversion was very professionally executed. During the conversion, the car was repainted again, this time in yellow, and fitted with a new black leather interior.

In the early to mid-1980's, Carlo Perego had his car repainted again in Rosso Dino, a shade of orange-red.

On June 21, 1985 Perego had the car registered in the name of his company Auto Avenir SA of Renens. Perego drove the Spyder in various events on registration plates VD 149018 and VD 215089 (old photos on file). In September of 1985, the car was even once driven by then Ferrari Formula 1 pilot Michele Alboreto at Gollion/Switzerland!

In 1986, Perego sold the car to a Mr. Scrima of Genève / Geneva.

In July of 1990 s/n 13637 turned up for sale at Select Occasions SA of Plan-les-Ouates, a Geneva-based company. It was advertised and color pictured in the French magazine "Autos International" 6/90 on page 45, possibly on consignment from Mr. Scrima.

Then it was exported to Germany and was for sale in late 1990 at the Auto-Salon Singen of Singen. They sold the car to an anonymous buyer in the Günzburg area in Bavaria.

The new owner had the car partially restored; it was repainted yellow. In mid-2005 it was serviced at the renowned workshop of Reinhard Schürer in Munich.

In September of 2005, s/n 13637 was sold to the current owner. The leather was recently retrimmed by expert Hagen Kruse of Uder and a new cover for the soft top was manufactured and fitted. A black stripe in the crimp was added, as found on the 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider Prototype s/n 12851 which had it's debut at the 1969 Frankfurt International Motor Show. This stripe is a sticker only and could easily be removed if desired.

Now for sale on owner's behalf through historian Andreas Birner. Please inquire!
